For the third night in a row, my once over exhausted, overwhelmed, anxiety-ridden body and soul, slept solid through the entire night. Such a wonderful feeling to be fully rested. I am fairly certain tonight’s sleep will also prove to be an awesome slumber.
Today was another fantastic day! I was back on the road to the nearest “city” 25 miles east before lunchtime. And lots of good things happened to me.
Earlier this evening, I had to return to such fair village to get my fingerprints scanned in to do a criminal back ground check for a job position I applied for. Let me tell you … that was one heck of a way to spend a Tuesday evening!!!! I kept thinking, there MUST BE a hidden camera somewhere in this joint .. but no, just the camera watching the folks in the orange jumpsuits. But let me just say this…at one point I had to be locked in a cell while a manic woman was cursing everyone out and she was put in to the “rubber room.” Then I was unlocked from mine to finish the finger printing process.
And up until this moment, I had consumed one mixed fruit with 20 grams of vanilla whey protein powder and 2% milk smoothie in my Magic Bullet and a tablespoon of hamburger goulash that my mom had made me. For some queer reason, my lap band DOES NOT LIKE hamburger. Period. And the shell-like noodles did not sit well either. Thankfully I only took a tablespoon worth into my pie hole.
So to end my day, I drank only half of my second protein smoothie and a tank full of ice-cold water. Oh and I got several more “oh you look so good” compliments from several folks who knew me from yesteryear too.
Oh and I also received my flu shot too. I know I will be touching a lot of germy pens and counters in the near future and I need to be healthy and prepared for any nasty viruses out there.
Heading back to the fair village in the east tomorrow AM. Stay STRONG.
