The taxman cometh. Aaaarrrgh. Wrestling with W-2's and 1099's right now.

Long, rough weekend. Had some planned indulgences, but did some extra indulging that left me feeling a little ... out of sorts afterward. Unfocused. Bloated, even.

It started Friday night, peaked Saturday night (there was a sticky toffee chocolate dessert involved) and then continued thru to Sunday and Monday nights. Like I said, all planned events. But a little too much.

Yesterday was a clean eating day. Also was able to walk home because the rain (finally) stopped, thank goodness. Needed that time to clear my head a bit.

Walked to and from work today. Very clean eating, but maybe too clean. I got light-headed and super dizzy and weak on my walk home. Of course it was the last mile, the hardest one to finish.

Had to fuel up on cashews to make it home. Tried to keep the dinner portion smaller to compensate.

On track for a beautiful day Thursday -- looking forward to a great walk. And filing my taxes.


  1. Well done on the cashews - the EXACT same thing happened to me yesterday, I actually got the shakes. Of course I ate 8 brazil nut cookies to get rid of it which was way out of propotion. I did then have a v frugal dinner (stir fry veg and prawns) but not sure that's the wisest path to take.

  2. Ah yes, it is that time of year, isn't it? I always do mine as soon as I have all the paperwork. For me it is so much less stressful.

    Make it a great day!

  3. Yeah, I always try to get my taxes out of the way.

    Hey indulgences are indulgences, and sometimes they get in the way. But the key is to not let them take over, right? Sounds like you're back on track. :)

    Any news abotu the MIL?

  4. Done those taxes?

    Hope all is well and that you are getting out in this beautiful weather...assuming your weather is like mine.
