“(+27): I feel fat after drinking my meal replacement shake.
(+27): I added chocolate sauce, a bsg of m&ms and a crushed up brownie to make it taste better.”
Story of my week.

Today is better (so far) than this week’s previous excuse for days.

I’m somewhat optimistic about Fatty. He seems happier and more comfortable, even locked up in our guest room for the last 3 days (so I can monitor his pooping independent of Tibby’s). He hadn’t pooped this morning which concerns me, but...

I am having a horrible week.

My cat is sick. After hundreds of dollars and a long visit to the vet yesterday, it was determined that he has a) inflammatory bowel disease (hence the vomit and pooping everywhere); b) a bad heart, which the vet says should probably have killed him by now and is very odd since it doesn’t seem to be bothering Fatty in the last; c) arthritis; and d) 2 perfectly circular x-ray spots on his lungs (either tumors or calcified nothings.

I wish I knew, because I keep having the realization that I will never progress career-wise the way I want to if I can’t manage my moods better. I have a little sticker at my desk that says “R. and T.L.T.” which means Relax and Think Long Term – it’s supposed to be a reminder to me that nothing is worth getting excessively upset over. I really wish I had a career counselor that I could discus...

Okay - I'm INSANELY sore today. I woke up sore, took some ibuprophen, and did my second session of 30DS over lunch. My arms won't raise above my waist. It seems so lame that 20 minutes of exercise could do this to me. Apparently, I need it. I'll measure tomorrow morning to get my baseline.

I could really use a nap. We had scary heavy winds and rain at our house last night, so I didn't sleep very well.

I'm filling out Will's preschool application and paperwork. It sort of snuck up on m...
