One of the Whole30 non-scale victories is feeling sharper and thinking more clearly. I finally noticed this was occurring today! My memory is much better as well!
I was having a conversation today, with someone who normally intimidates me, and I was surprising myself with the insightful contributions leaving my mouth! This is exciting! I also slept for a full 8.5 hours last night, which had to have helped.
The “bacon on the plate” (since I can’t have “icing on the cake”), was that I didn’t feel tired at all by the end of the day, like I have in the past. I used to be so exhausted when I got home, that I would practically cry at the thought of having to ascend the 15 or so stairs to get to the bedroom! This is a fantastic non-scale victory!
It’s a shame that greater patience and higher tolerance for aggravating people are not Whole30 non-scale victories as well. I could’ve used some of that today… well… every day.
I mean, WHO – after receiving a message that someone is too busy to attend a meeting and they’re heads-down to complete a deliverable, expressing they’re compressed for time due to time zone differences on completing said deliverable AND displaying a status of DND –
-WHOOO goes to that busy person’s desk right after they receive the meeting “decline” and message, ignores the DND sign, and interrupts their work to ask if they “have two minutes” (if I did, my sign wouldn’t be up and I wouldn’t have panic on my face)… AND when the busy person politely requests the entitled person come back later, THE JERK STARTS YAMMERING ANYWAY! About shit that doesn’t matter!! WHO DOES THAT?!?!? I’ll tell you who! A narcissistic, egomaniacal, snake of an ass hat. THAT’S WHO! Ugh!
Cheers (with water) to the Freakin’ Weekend
I actually left work today while the sun was still up. Well, technically, it was setting, but there was definitely still light outside! I rushed home to enjoy some peace and quiet in our hearth room before hubby came home and peppered me with questions about dinner. This is my version of decompressing without wine; an easy-read (yet informational) book, tall glass/cup of cold water, a fire burning, and a view of the sunset. Life is a-ok. This is Friday night for old, tired people.
The weekend is finally here, and I plan to stay home and relax! Hubby and I may do a little shopping and food prepping, but my ass needs a staycation.
