weird week

I feel like a lot of things in my life have taken a 40-degree turn to the left. I was feeling like I was never going to have a job opportunity, and I'm suddenly getting some nibbles. I feel like the exercise, which used to be the only thing I ever did right, has been out the window lately because of some injury issues. I am still trying to keep active, but it's harder to factor in these limitations and not be frustrated.

Still struggling with Weight Watchers, though. There are actually people in my meeting who say they have trouble eating all of their points... while I struggle to stay within 10 of my range. I need to plan better and I need to stop using every wacky situation as an excuse to throw the whole plan out the window.

Right now everything feels so weird that I am just trying to get through each day as it comes. I am trying to remain calm as everything else around me seems a little mixed up. I'm just going to do the best I can for now. Wish me luck.


  1. Do the people that have a hard time using up all their points share WHAT they are eating? It would be interesting to know. Good luck with your nibbles!!!

  2. Good luck Jen. You seem to have an enormous amount of personal resources you can use to your advantage.

    Btw, I love hearing about your dissertation trials. I relate. Hopefully I'll finish my PhD this year. It's my - ahem - 4th year.
