1- Today marks 30 days until I leave on my first cruise of 2012. It’s a 6-day Western Caribbean cruise and I am so stupid excited about it, I can barely focus some days. My first cruise experience was the best of my life and I just can’t wait to experience it all again. (More to come on the details!)
2 – I am still in awe by the outpouring of love and support that followed my QLC post on Wednesday. What I’m learning through my own QLC is that what I’m feeling is normal and healthy. The comments brought about some thoughts of my own, which I hope to address next week. I really do have the best readers.
3 – I’ve been having a terrible time with cravings this week. This low sugar diet is still incredibly hard and while my body has adjusted, my mind hasn’t. My mind is telling me I need soda and chocolate and gosh darnit, today was hard, eat your emotions! But my body? My body is doing just fine being on very little sugar. I just wish my mind could hurry up and catch up with my body’s signals. I’ve been strong enough to say no when I want to say yes, but it’s been a daily battle.
4 – My mom had an MRI last Friday. She’s been falling a lot recently (one landing her in the ER), enough that her doctor was concerned enough to schedule one. She has no other symptoms, other than the falling. No headaches or dizzy spells. So while I’m not too concerned, worrying is also what I do so of course, I’m slightly worried my mom will receive terrible news. She finds out on Tuesday the results so say a prayer this weekend, if you’re so inclined? She thinks she’s just a bit clumsy and perhaps has a depth perception problem. (Edited to add: Just received news from my mom that her MRI came back normal. Happy Friday, indeed!)
5 – I don’t have many weekend plans, so I’m just excited to use the time to catch up on sleep, chores, and my Fierce Love course (I’m way behind!). This week has been long and hectic, so I’m ready for the slow pace that the weekend brings.
