So so tired today. All day. And I don't know why. It was reasonably quiet in my office most of the morning but I just couldn't really get moving. And then I totally peaked by 2pm which made getting to the gym after work really hard. A, my gym partner, was equally flat and it was just so hard to get through the session. I am having shin issues as well as on and off problems with my foot. Yesterday I couldn't get through my 20 mins on the treadmill and today I had to break halfway through. We were discussing it tonight and neither of us wanted to use the "s" word. I refused to say it and A was so funny just dancing around it because I didn't want to say it. Apparently it means my calves are tight.

Monday night I discussed with kathrynlinge making my chickpea curry for like yesterday - have it cooking in the background but not for dinner so that I had meals for the rest of the week. And I didn't do it and definitely was short for lunch today. Anyway, am happy that even though I was pretty tired and over it all tonight when I came in the door, I still managed to put the curry on and its still simmering in the background. I also boiled more eggs - they are working really well for breakfast. I really didn't believe that would be enough to kickstart the morning but I am happy to be totally wrong on that one. And being organised and doing a bunch ahead of time is also working out great to grab them and run in the morning. I miss my muffins though.

What else? I'm doing well with the not eating 2 hours before bed. It's actually getting me to head off to bed at 9.30 since there's no reason to sit up and watch TV (if there's no food ... I guess?). That's helping to get in some reading for fun before bed or else just relaxing better before sleeping and I am sleeping better. Who knew that all that advice people always spurt would actually be helpful? I really should take more note and listen up sooner!

Last night though I had this bizarre and I guess really literal dream, which I think had me so tense that I overtensed my joints cause my elbows were sore this morning. I dreamed I was standing in a tree, out on a branch and peering into the house next door. I guess I must be feeling pretty "out on a limb" eh?

That's me for the day. Eventful and boring all wrapped up together. Gonna take me my laptop to bed and kick some slush arse before sleeping!

ETA: And after all that ... only got 3 meals out of the curry.
