I know, I know, it's been nearly two weeks. Sorry about that. That big project I keep talking about goes live tonight, so I've been otherwise occupied! I can't promise my blogging will be any more consistent until it's long over, but I promise I will try (and it will be “over” in July!).
My eating has been all over the map on some days. Usually it's healthy stuff, like green juices, green smoothies, soups, and salads – but not always. My schedule has been, in a word, hell. It feels like the only time I'm home is to sleep, and that sucks.
The meals where I'm eating out or doing something quick has left me feeling weighed down and icky. Not fun. But on the positive side, it's been mostly good stuff, so that's good.
This has been sadly lacking and has left me feeling bummed more than anything else. Sort of losing my motivation! Mostly just some mild yoga.
I had a dr's appt last week, and have to keep physical activity to light things – another reason for the lack of runs. I'm still not fully cleared, but hope to soon. I have a race next weekend!
Without boring you with too many details, lets just say it's been busy. R had an exorcist-like illness about a week and a half ago and I was lucky enough to get it next. Thankfully it only lasted about 30 hrs, but it wasn't a fun 30 hrs!
I did spend most of last Saturday with NS goofing out and about town. It was a really nice day so after grabbing lunch (and a monster margarita), we walked around, stopped at several places for drinks, coffee, people watching, and eventually dinner. That dinner ended with vegan doughnut holes 🙂
The next week will be some weird and long hours, but I'm also very excited. This project has been going on about 18 months, and my favorite part is go-live! Getting the users on the systems we've spent so long designing, building, and testing is always a thrill. Tonight at midnight is our first site, and that means 24 x 7 onsite support for a week. I'm sure it'll be chaotic often, but truth be told – that's part of the fun!
I spent today hitting up Costco for command center snacks. So many people are coming to support, that I certainly don't want them to starve! I picked up things like granola bars, bottled water, buckets of pretzels, animal crackers, and a tub of Twizzlers. The rest of the day will be cooking up quick and easy meals I can eat at work, since I know I'll have even less kitchen time than I do now. I'll try and nap, but I doubt I'll be very successful – I never am.
So anyway, if you don't hear from me again for awhile, I'm sorry. When things let up a bit, I'll be more consistent with it (and with eating my clean food and running and…..
