Day 21: Monday, Sept 23
Man, my house smelled delicious when I woke up! If there’s an incentive to make your own stock, that’s definitely one of them.
Unfortunately, my day was back to back meetings from 7:30 am to about 2:30 pm. Add onto that the fact that I didn’t get to sleep until late (my own fault), and this made for a very cranky Heather who pretty much hated people. I told this to my friend Paul, who said, “That happens to you pretty often”. Well, dang, the man does have a point, and is probably something I need to work on at some point in the near future.
Also, frustratingly, I dove somewhat head first into the cashews today as well. I’m sure that this was because I was exhausted and old habits say “eat food to wake you up”. Sigh. At least it isn’t gluten or sugar, but still! Something has got to change here, and I’m not quite sure how to tackle this. Perhaps I need to make a commitment to do something else: write, walk, drink water. I think most importantly, I need to be conscious of the choices I’m making.
I have to turn my car in to get some dents fixed Tuesday morning, and will be without a car until Wednesday night, so I’m going to take the opportunity of being home in the evening to get my weekly cook up on. On Sunday I’d planned my recipes for the week and also planned out the WCU:
