I left out the part where he invited me come stay for a couple of days for bike riding, snowshoeing, cross country skiing, etc. He's very into the outdoors (me too). But I don't know if I will have the nerve to actually act on it. He lives near Acadia National Park, which regular readers of my journal may remember I had camped in August and waxed rapsodically about for some time.
Super busy at work, didn't leave any journal entries. The last couple of days have confirmed that eating and sleeping on strict schedule is essential. A couple of days I did not feel like eating in the late afternoon before I left for work, but I did eat anyway. Good thing I did as I was too busy to grab anything at all for 8-10 hours. When I don't eat at home I tend to become ravenous the minute I step into the hospital, which is okay if I'm not horribly busy. But if I am, it can be a real problem. One of the unhealthy situations I like to avoid. Sure, I can go for long time without eating. Probably weeks. But why would I stress my body like that? Just being here is stressful enough. It's bad enough to be awash in cortisol without adding fasting. Anyway, I am glad I stuck to my schedule and everything has been fine.
Slept very well today and could have slept for longer but alas, had to get up. Was very hungry and had a large meal. Baked a slab of paleo flatbread and put carnitas on top of it. Very, very delicious but the pork juice made the bread soggy. Kind of messy to eat, but no less delicious because of it. Also had some asparagus wrapped in prosciutto and roasted until snappy. Mmmm mmmm mmmm. I put some chia seeds in coconut milk to get jelly-like, then added a banana and some honey. Yowzah. Yes, it was a feast. Pretty sure I can skip my midnight snack and wait until 4 AM to eat.
Felines are all happy and well. Woke up today with all three around my head. I felt like an eskimo.
A little bit of muscle soreness from my slow motion weight training stuff, which is good! The soreness is right in the belly of the affected muscles, which makes me think I am doing the exercises properly. And it isn't too bad - just enough to motivate me. I am surprised that it is more fun than I would have thought. It is really quite fun. As I said, the motions are slow, but the workout is fast paced. Am going to try to fit in some tonight here at work. I can go to the gym upstairs.
