Write this post. That’s happening, if only now at ten-thirty at night. I don’t why I so often refer to the time in these posts, I guess I figure it’s all part of the record-keeping. But I was intending to get this and many other things done early, but, as is obvious, I am getting there.
Eat low carb today. Don’t lose my mind over it. That pretty much is accurate. I didn’t fall backwards into a burrito or anything. I do need to drink more water tomorrow since I think I had an excess of salt today. Whoo boy. Exciting stuff. I made myself some eggs and sausage for lunch, but I defrosted some green beans and something unholy happened to them in the process. A friend who recently went to Tuscany brought back some flavored olive oil and I tried dousing the beans in it, to no avail. I would chew one and feel as though I was eating rotting shoe leather. Shoe leather slathered in hot pepper flavored olive oil, but shoe leather nonetheless. So when my sister weathered the insane storm this afternoon, and got me an unwich, I was glad to get some more vegetables in. I will try and get over to my parents’ tomorrow with their proper cooking apparati and see what and can get myself filled on.
Also, tomorrow, since I kept saying I would do a full-out exercise session and didn’t, I want to take a long walk. Wearing walking shoes (not rotting or made of green beans) and listening to my music and then, I’d like to do some proper stretching and exercise back here. Use the WiiActive or something. I did do what I’d like to do every day between now and the concerts – 10 situps. I can manage that. Oh, and I did 10 minutes on the exercise bike. Done. At least I can write it down as having been accomplished. And it has already made an incredible difference in my energy level.
Get this room livable again. Well, I did some laundry and some dishes. So I wasn’t a complete waste in that regard. I got sort of hung up since I felt like I made some strides on ukulele learning and I wanted to keep progressing: C to Em to F to G, repeat until numb in both fingers and brain and then repeat again. And I also got working on my charitable project page again and making the artwork for that in Photoshop subsumed me until the rains were so loud and aggressive that I had to put the laptop down and shut the windows for fear that everything inside would be sodden and warped.
It really was an incredible storm. And I know the market didn’t get washed out. That’s going to make everyone in a better mood on Monday. Right now, getting rest, drinking water, minding my mood, taking a bath, these things are all a priority. Because as my friend noted, it’s only five weeks until the first concert. Five weeks for me to lose seven pounds, get some energy for the madness of August and work on not letting all the plates fall out of the air.
