Ahh, Monday. It's so interesting to me - I LOVE reading blogs, I read a lot of blogs, even if I don't comment on most of them. I'm a bit of a voyeur, I love seeing how people live their lives. Well, every Thursday and Friday, I barely get to read any blogs.. only about five or six post close to the weekend. Then Monday comes and there is a veritable flood of posts from every blog I've ever bookmarked and I can't keep up!
It's a weird phenomenon!
Anyway. This morning someone came to our house to test Chris because he signed up for a life insurance policy. That was weird. We will know in about two weeks how everything came up and what kind of rate we will get.
Also - good news! Chris and I became an uncle and aunt last night! His sister had a gorgeous baby girl named Alexandra. I am chomping at the bit to go visit her, but I want to give the new family plenty of time to settle in and settle down, don't want to overwhelm them!
(I also got some baby fever as I cried in joy for his sister... that's another story, though).
I have another therapist appointment tomorrow. I'm glad I do, but I'm not excited for it. I just seem to be going crazier and crazier!!! (not really - just seems that way. I've felt decently centered the past couple of days... but I still get stuck in such a bad head space most of the time. I want to change that!)
I have nothing revolutionary to discuss today. I'm a bit low energy since I was a bit sick this weekend. My weight continues to fluctuate in a range I am not happy with (123-125) and I know I have myself to blame - I am super snacky, especially in the evening, not from hunger, but from emotions and stress. But, hey, that's why I am finally going to therapy, no? I'll continue trying to get it under control.
One interesting change we are probably going to make - Chris is going to lighten up on the paleo a little. His blood pressure is consistently a little higher (still normal, but higher than he'd like) since going paleo. So he is going to substitute oatmeal for eggs a few times a week. It's not paleo, but his body doesn't seem to respond to paleo as SUPER well as mine does. But, he's going to change up just his breakfasts for a while (not going to add in any other types of grains or at any other time of day) and see if it affects a longer term change in his blood pressure.
Off to work for me, going to try and wake up a little, get more focused (mmm coffee).
