Meal #1: 8 am – 1 egg, 2-3/4 oz turkey patty, 1 slice Ezekiel toast, 1/2 T butter, 1/4 c amaranth, 3/4 c plain – yogurt, 4 oz mixed frozen berries, 1 t maple flavoring, 20 drops stevia
Meal #2: 1pm – 4 oz broiled salmon with Seafood Magic, 2 c fresh romaine and cilantro from my garden (ready to bolt with 6 days in a row over 80 degrees!) with sliced beets, 1 T NO, 8 oz red potatoes
To bed at 7:30pm
60 mins chainsawing a tree that fell in my backyard, moving fallen wood and weeding.
I would like to say that I am all relaxed from my lovely ride to Daytona Beach Bike Week, leisurely shopping and playing on the beach, but no! That is history! I am now quite stressed out with all I have (over)committed to doing.
In addition to the usual work, and cooking that didn’t get done over the weekend, I have a women’s disc golf clinic that needs sponsors and promotions, some OA meetings to go to in order to get a sponsor, a video project due in 2 days, a nutrition talk to give this Saturday, a lot of work for a friend, and my gardens are going wild with the rains and now the warm sun.
Some of this pile up is because nothing got done the past 2 weeks when I was working double shifts, and then on vacation. Thankfully the work is back to normal (out with the old, yuck job and in with the new, good job where I make 2-3x the money as the old job).
First thing – long, deep breaths. That always slows my mind down. Affirmation from grad school: “I have all the time I need for everything to be completed wonderfully.” Next, pray for guidance (and divine intervention!). Now I’m looking at what I can eliminate or get help with. Then I will allot a chunk of my schedule to each necessary task and – MAKE IT WORK!
The food is really the top priority so that I can maintain my abstinence and sanity. Fortunately I have already bought the groceries and gotten some easy preparation foods. I have quite a few items prepared earlier and frozen.
