Carbs, Day Two… and some really good other things.

Today was set to be a stressful day. I was short-handed at work, the replacement hire I found to start next week is no longer because she had some schedule conflicts, I only had one bottle of water (I think), etc. etc. Nevertheless, I tried to keep my wits about me and maintained a constant intake of carbs. For breakfast it was a bagel. Afternoon snack: an apple. Lunch: a baked potato. Dinner: pad thai. I had some people come and congratulate me on even attempting to run the marathon. I had some people who wished me good luck. I… I’m not done yet.

Carbs, Day One.

T-3 days until the marathon and shit is getting real. All this week I’ve been worrying about water intake, not drinking enough electrolytes, eating correctly. Today was the first day I loaded up on carbs. I’m not sure if it’s supposed to be enjoyable, but I’m not sure how I felt about it. Breakfast: bagels. Lunch: veggie fried rice. Dinner: a shitload of pasta and bread. Tomorrow, I get to do it all over again. I’m not sure if I can! :) Have a good night everyone.

Almost Home.

Currently in a cab on my way home. I went to see “Perks” again – and perhaps tomorrow I will write of my experience seeing the movie – but as of right now, I just want to get home, and get to bed. I’ve been up since 3:30a. Ugh. Tomorrow starts carbo-loading in earnest. Have a good night, everyone.

Ah, Yes. The blog thing.

Not gonna lie – almost forgot to write in this. “In” as if this is some kind of diary, and I am 13-years-old. While I act like I am 13, I recognize that this is NOT a diary. It’s closer to a LiveJournal, but it’s not a diary. Right now, I’m just in full stress mode. Quiet? Sure. Calm? Almost. Fucking stressed to the point I want to sleep all day long? You betcha. Trying to remind myself that all of this shall come to pass soon. The marathon I worked 20 weeks for (sometimes really hard, sometimes not so… I’m not done yet.

Slow It Down, October.

October, you’re interesting already. The marathon is in six days and I have worried 10,000 times about getting run over by a car, someone sneezing in my general direction, listening to music so much that I get sick of sound, eating, eating, eating and eating. JUST TODAY. My friend and co-worker is moving to Texas, so I’ve spent the majority of today looking over resumes and e-mails. They all give me a headache. I wish there was a filter button to sort the top resumes from the rest. And yes, I know there’s supposed to be that accented e, but… I’m not done yet.
