Queen Whinerface

I feel like the queen of the state of whiners this week. My tummy hurt when I woke up on Wednesday and later that morning, in a frantic dash to the bathroom at work, I smashed the door into my knee in just the right place. I thought I was either going to vomit or pass out. In the six years I've worked here, I've never smashed the door into my knee. Now I have a huge black and blue on my knee and it still hurts a little bit. Add in the fact that my clothes continue to feel uncomfortable, I can't seem to find my rhythm and I think it's pretty self-explanatory why I feel like the queen of whiners.

I've been toying around with the idea of keeping a picture log of all the food that I eat in a day as an extra level of culpability. I normally think the idea is silly but I might try it for a week next week, just to see if making it public helps keep me out of the stupid candy jars at work. Candy's okay sometimes but when it becomes an every day occurrence and when you are hardly doing any exercise anyhow, it's a problem. I guess I'll give it a whirl, it can't hurt.

In order to do that though, I'll have to make a grocery trip to Wegmans. I simultaneously love and hate Wegmans. The parking lot and navigating the store drive my blood pressure through the roof. People seem to forget all common courtesy and situational awareness the moment they walk through the door with the cart. Parking in the middle of the aisles, that's cool right? Stopping to have a conversation with someone and blocking the entire path through an aisle, that's cool too right? It also seems like the moment you politely say, "Excuse me," to get past the clusterfluff in front of you, you get the evil eye because you're the jerk that wants to actually shop. Grr, that store, I swear.

I finally replaced my FitBit Zip with a newer and pinker version, since I'm trying to get back into the flow and lose the sevenish pounds I put on during the whole house hunting/summer injury process.


My old one died a couple months ago and I couldn't revive it, no matter how hard I tried. I don't really need it for the calorie count it's displaying but knowing how many steps I get in a day is a helpful metric especially with a desk job. If anyone wants to be wants to be my Fitbit friend, here's the link. I'll add a little icon over on the right too.
