Yesterday was a decent day and I'm just glad it's over. With all the stuff and stress I've been through lately I just am not handling stress at work. My job is stressful everyday on a routine basis. Right now there is certain drama going on and it's worse for me in light of recent events. I'm glad I can go home to a few days off. I'm eating on plan. I have not worked out yet today, but hoping to get in some exercise tonight, maybe a walk with the kids. This week has been bad with my husband out of town and single parenting has left me tired without much time for me.
Looking forward to my weekend. Trying hard not to dwell on the ever present stress in my life. Sports helps with that so I plan to immerse myself in learning the new players on my team, evaluating their potential and just plain getting pumped up for my favorite sport to be back. We're heading to Oklahoma to see the OU spring football game and should be fun. Hopefully the weather will be OK (ha ha!). I'm excited to see the offensive line that has supposedly bulked up and with another year of maturity, should be great. Also there are a few new recruits to check out and I'll just start to familiarize myself with the starters that may have changed. (Yes I'm that big of a sports geek)
On top of that, NBA playoffs start this weekend and although for us Mavs fans this has left us less than satisfied the last, oh......million years, I still look forward to them every year. Well, every year since I lived here. There was nothing but OU football in Oklahoma where I grew up. And maybe OU baseball. And sorta OU basketball, but No professional teams left me not caring about NBA. I moved to Dallas in 1999 and since then I've caught Mavs fever. Even been to a few games. And now OKC has a team which is exciting because they are actually good. So now I have 2 teams in the playoffs that I care about.
Baseball is in full swing. (Hee hee) I'm actually enjoying it a little now that the Rangers are finally relevant. I've never been a huge baseball person, but I'll admit it's fun to watch sometimes. I can't believe our MVP has a broken arm and that it happened on such a meaningless play. But, "that's the way baseball go" as our Ron Washington would say. He'll be out 8 weeks and so we'll see what the rest of the team can do without him. The hated Yankees are on the schedule for this weekend. We'll see. I think we can take them. Maybe? We've done it before. Smile.
On the health front, I am doing well and hoping for a good weigh in this week. I'd like to finally get below were I was before the funeral. I am planning for pitfalls this weekend with the travel and such. I'll have breakfast at home and pack snacks for the drive. I've got to sit down and look at the new menus and see how I can get them done while out of town. The tempation will be alcohol. NO I do not drink much, but I like to on the weekends we're home when we go out with friends, 1 or 2 drinks. I'm planning on little to none. Maybe ultra light beer? I swell so much with that stuff. I don't want to blow my weigh-in.
What are your plans for the weekend? Any sports on your horizon? NBA playoffs? Baseball? Others? Sorry if you hate sports, I can't help myself. Have a great weekend. I don't know if I'll have time to post or not, but I'll be around. Take care!
