    Struggling a bit this week. Felt great Sunday, probably did too much over the weekend, now feeling completely drained. I freaked out at home yesterday, seeing (we believe) a rat eating under birdfeeder at back of yard, very strange in middle of day... it ran to wood pile when dog started barking like crazy. Christmas tree tilting more each day, I need hubby's help to right, but I won't see him until lunch tomorrow. Putzy things, and I can't seem to get my *kitten* in gear. Would really help if I ate healthier, I'm sure. I'll keep trying.

    Was glad to be done stressing about glucose test. Snow day today so no work. I was pretty out of it after glucose test yesterday so I forgot to turn the heat down before i left work - my boss (owner, not manager) is being pretty over the top about "work not being done" and its stressing me out today. Todays snow day felt like a retaliation for my mistake so I get paid less. All very petty but trying to handle professionally and just move on. Ahh, tomorrows a new day. Plenty of other positives for me to focus on and I will try to get some rest today as I felt very nauseous last night and thru the night...probably all the crap. But a day of rest before the final crazy holiday rush is welcome!

    @maryrobinson40 saw you were not feeling well, hope you feel better soon!
    @Bex953172 hope youre doing alright! Must be busy woth Christmas and the girls!!!

    I’m going out for dinner tonight, the only food related goal is to have a light lunch and to enjoy my evening meal!
    I will meet my Fitbit exercise goals as this will give me a few extra calories.
