|Maisy, Watching Cody on Sister Wives|
Well, my first cleanse day went very well. I did get hungry of course but only for very brief moments. Every hour you get something and you are drinking water a lot so it keeps your tummy entertained. My blood sugar did fine. The hardest times is at lunch and at dinner - mainly b/c your body is atuned to getting food at these hours. And you see others getting food. So I got through that by entertaining my brain with other things. I worked thru lunch at work using that time to get something done as work is crazy right now. I read in my Billy Ray Cyrus book at night. And George and I watched a Soprano's show. We have about 8 more and we'll be done with the show. My hunger was really bad about 8. The instructions said you could substitute snacks with whey thins. So I did that. That was more filling and was just what I needed to be able to sleep.
I woke up with a slight headache, which they said was normal. It is not bad. It comes and goes. But I had a mocha Isagenix shake this morning blended with ice and it was yummy.
I'm craving salmon and broccoli of all things. lol But I'm taking Tuna for lunch. George is fixing a roast tonight so it's a one shake day for me. But that is ok. I have to remember that the reason I'm doing this is b/c of the nutrition but the weight loss will be a plus.
Here's some snacks I found on the website I have. If I could have any of them right now, I'd go for the egg and the string cheese. lol
So....guess what. I slept the most awesome night of sleep. All night on the cleanse night. The only time woken up was by a person/dog. I think Maisy wanted up in the bed and George put her up there. I don't remember waking up but once to go potty and that was it. That is good!
So not a lot to talk about. That has been my world. I'm looking forward to eating today, lol.
Hmm...I think I'm going to go boil an egg for break and probably one to put in my tuna at lunch.
George has some leads on jobs, nothing firm or solid but it is at least lifting him up. I had to laugh that he told me that one guy told him some tips about some websites to check out. Same ones I mentioned and he didn't get excited over it when I brought it up - but I think he tunes me out.
As long as he gets the info I guess its better if it comes from someone else. He will at least then be more interested.
On that note, I am starting to have a thing about the following lately. It's not a new thing but just one that I've noticed more lately:
1. When I'm talking and someone interrupts. For example if I am talking with a friend and someone else jumps in and dominates the conversation and then the conversation I was having is now over, making me feel like my conversation doesn't matter. There is someone that I am around that does this to me so much that I usually just don't talk to anyone whenever this person is anywhere near. It's pointless to try. And people wonder why I'm so quiet. I used to talk all the time. Why bother now. Because I am never able to finish a sentence in their presence. It's as if my words and thoughts don't matter.
2. When someone asks me to move out of the way so someone else can be more convenienced at my inconvenience. For example, I was in line behind George at the grocery in line to pay and he asked me to move so a lady behind me could go ahead and put her groceries on the counter. I failed to look to see if she was blonde. lol But the ire ran through me. All the lady had to do was wait about 30 seconds like the rest of us do as the line moves up. It's not her fault. George was the one trying to look after her and make it quick for her, by telling me to get out of the way. What man does this and lives to tell it? But I got out of the way and got out of line and stood up front, saying "here let me just get out of everyone's way". It is a disrespect. It's like saying "you, my dear, are not worth the space you stand in - let this lady behind you do her thing b/c you are not important to be standing there doing your thing" and it's also patronizing like he is shuffling a kid around in line telling them where to stand. It's embarrassing for all of us. That is just one example I thought of as it happened recently. It's a small thing - but its indication is huge! When we got in the car, I let George know that I did not like that at all. And that I didn't want to be treated that way. He didn't have much to say other than I'm sorry you felt that way. He needed to have been tending to his own groceries and not worried about the lady behind me. If she was old enough to be able to check out groceries, then I'm sure she's stood in line and waited before til the people in front of her paid and moved up. To be honest, I'm still not over it.
How people treat us in these types of situations says a lot overall about how they think of you as a person. So I don't know. I guess we'll see how it goes. But overall - he really screwed up.
I guess we just pray that they will see the error of their ways and that God puts us amidst people that really care for us and doesn't mind when we speak, actually longs to hear our thoughts, and loves the fact that we stand beside them take up space.
