    Monday: Gym happened after all! Work is so slow I was able to come back home and squeeze in a workout.

Doc was all smiles and said she was proud of me! a1c was 6.0, down from 6.2, cholesterol was down, blood pressure was down a little bit. Yay me! Gym tomorrow, I promise.

    Saturday. Exercise: PT Eat:on plan until midnight. Music: no. Friday night was okay until I got a call at around midnight for a stat at a facility that was a two hour drive away. So I stopped at 7-11 for a cappuccino and doughnut. No regrets. At 3, after the X-ray, picked up some cheetos for the two hour drive back home. Beg forgiveness for that, even though I only ate a few. Then at 4, I was still an hour away from home, I stopped at 7-11 and bought a small bowl of cocoa krispies and some milk. I will not apologize or feel guilty about that. It was time for breakfast. So there. Anyway, that X-ray was so stupid. The patient was combative and even though she was tied to a wheelchair and two aides in lead aprons were holding her, she was flailing about so much I couldn't get a decent image. So that was a waste of time. But wait! There's more! The nurse knew when he made the call for the X-ray that we weren't going to get a decent image because she was that combative. And he called anyway. Huge waste of time and some feelings of resentment on my part. That one extremely unproductive trip cost 5 hours of overtime and lack of sleep. Argh. Saturday I had a late lunch and that really early breakfast, dinner was good, late night snack was actually kinda okay.

    Thursday Exercise: no. Haven't been doing the PT stretches, haven't been feeling the need because feeling so good, but I probably should do them. Eat: pas de pain, petit sucre until Agape meal at church, pita bread and hummus, olives, figs and dates. Music: Maundy Thursday service, played organ and directed choir. At last minute, choir was moved to spot behind altar to accommodate the foot washing. Choir was singing much too loud because of acoustics and psychology. From behind the altar they wanted to project out to the people who were a long way away from them. Wanted to practice in position so they could hear how they sound in there but didn't get the chance (people running around and rehearsing for the foot washing). Argh, I have to teach these people about the importance the acoustics in that building, but don't know how to do it tactfully. (Aspergers and poor social skills) E.g.Palm Sunday open was a disaster. There was a handbell choir in back of church that could not stay together with the organ and organist in the front of the church, because of time delay due to the distance, and the bell director didn't know how to compensate. Eventually the organist figured out what was happening and just allowed the bells to be a half beat behind him. So from the back of the church we sounded together, but people at the front were hearing a mess. Le sigh.

    Since the kids moved south and out of the area, I have been sending care packages, I think of them as bits of home, since we're so far apart. Stockings at Christmas and baskets at Easter. I was just thinking, sending these things cost more than the contents, so maybe I'll give it up and just send gift cards. And then my son calls and says, "Did you send the Easter basket? We really look forward to it every year." Off to church.

    Exercise: Sore, but a DOMS sore, not an injured kind of sore. Absolutely keeping the DVD program going. Not today though, will do it MWF. PT everyday. Eat: plan is - pas de pain, pas de sucre. Which is the diet Frenchwomen do. I expect to have some perfect days and some less than perfect days. Music: organ practice for upcoming service. Infinity: I have been maintaining for a couple of years now, gentle exercise just trying to get into the habit. I'm ready to kick it up a notch now. A small notch (I have a long history of injuring myself by pushing too hard too soon). Classical church music, especially liturgical and Episcopal. Was a part time church organist/music director for many years. I am currently working full time as an X-ray tech (health insurance! steady paycheck! Yay!) so not as involved. I sing in the choir, fill in on the organ from time to time, and occasionally compose. E.g. I am playing the Maundy Thursday service to take some of the load off the regular organist (Holy Week, very busy week for church musicians).

    Tateman: Time is wasting, I have to get it in!

    Rough few days, for sure. When you give in to the eating bug, it's okay, you need it for some reason or other, be it physical or emotional. Just try to limit the damage! Good luck to us all on the next challenge.

    Yes , Emma is sweating right now and breathing hard. Yay? So last challenge I was able to get a good exercise routine going. But reading other people's challenges I understand that I need to step it up some and actually get in a workout. So this challenge Exercise: PT, and DVD that came with the Total Gym. The DVD is forty minutes and I am sweating (a bit) and breathing hard. Back is sore, hoping that is just muscle soreness and not injury. Eat: Still working on that one, I'll have to let you know later. I want to do some mental growth every day so something music: playing, practicing, writing, reading, just something music related. I've got choir rehearsal and Sunday morning for music twice a week already. Our awesome new priest is shaming me by knowing our hymnal and music better than I do (How dare he!). Must do something about that. Maybe study a couple of pieces from our hymnal every week and find some church music info online to read. Off to the showers and find the ibuprofen.
