The meat went bad before I did anything with it. My fault. Pork chops are on my grocery list so I can use up the saurkraut with the Granny Smith apples I just bought.
Awesome news: I haven't had my annual review yet (still nervous about it despite the following information), but my boss sent me a form to submit to HR for my 5% raise Not sure what this will look like on my biweekly timesheets, but at least I know I can rule out my unfounded fear of losing my job anytime soon. I think it's retroactive through this whole month (based on the dates on the form) so my next paycheck will include the catch-up salary
Hulky is home sick today. He woke up with swollen neck glands and feeling like crud. He's missing out on 20 hrs of work this week because he's a temp and the office was closed yesterday. He usually works 10 hrs on Monday and Tuesday. I think he is going to try to make up the hours through the rest of the week, I just hope he lets himself rest today. I made sure he took his allergy meds before I left and gave him a glass of water with 20,000 IU of Vitamin D drops in it.
We walked approximately 6.7 miles yesterday, calculated on Google maps when we returned. I was struggling during most of the return trip, but made an effort not to whine, as that tends to make me feel worse. My feet were pretty sore. I wore my Merrell's and alternated between heel and toe strike. The back of my legs just above my knees is sore today. I suggested to Hulky that if we can keep walking regularly this year, with occasional long trips, I might like to do the Walk for Hunger next year. I guess there are other walks I could get involved with, but I think that's the longest. The full thing is 20 miles. The Buddy Walk is more near and dear to me, but is not very long
I yawned a bit on my ride in today. I didn't sleep well last night, woke up several times, so that's probably why. Otherwise, my ride went great! I shaved a couple minutes off and generally feel good.
I stuck with 100 mg of 5-HTP over the weekend, but didn't sleep that well and had some evening anxiety. I think I'll go back to 150 mg (larger dose at dinner, other dose at bedtime) and try 1500 mg of L-Tyrosine (split into two doses, one in AM and one at lunch). That much L-Tyrosine gave me the jitters when I first tried it in late 2011, but maybe I didn't have the ratio right.
I remembered to take my B-complex this morning, but not the brazil nuts. I'm going to try to make that a morning thing, otherwise I'll forget. Clearly, it's going to take some effort to remember. Maybe after work would be better? I don't know.
My gut has been behaving lately, aside from understandable bloating in response to foods I know won't sit well with me anyway.
