Am I Dreaming???

After only 2 chiropractic adjustments my foot feels pretty good. I still have some tender spots but I am not having excruciating pain that makes me walk like a gimp. Maybe it is my imagination but I swear I am feeling better. I am trying not to jinx anything so I am being the ideal patient but not doing much activity, icing, and doing my exercises. Toe tapping and tracing the alphabet with my feet have become second nature. I was supposed to have another appointment today but I had to cancel.

I had to cancel my appointment with the miracle worker today because I was in HELL!!!!! I volunteered to work the financial system support line. I work for an extremely large organization and our financial platform just converted to a new one. Everything that you could dream of going wrong, did go wrong. Peeps were calling the line hyperventilating and flipping out! My job was to log the calls and email while bitching under my breath about crazy people. More than once I had a spontaneous outburst saying "IT IS JUST NUMBERS PEOPLE....NUMBERS! NO ONE IS GOING TO DIE!! CHILL THE EFF OUT!!!!!!" The poor people that normally work in that department are overworked, under trained, and just do not get paid enough to put up with that BS. Although I have no real power, I helped my new peeps out by putting assholes to the bottom of the cue. *evil grin* It is so crazy that when I left for the day today, there were 400+ calls that needed to be assigned to the proper channels. Ouch. OK....so my job isn't that bad.

In my effort to recomit to this weight loss, I stepped on the scale for the first time in week. I can't even bring myself to post the digits. I will just say that my little bought of food poisoning did NOTHING for the weightloss. DAMNITALLTOHELL! So in the mean time I am doing my PT exercise and googling Weight Watchers Core recipes (LOL at the idea of me cooking).

Helpdesk is bad even when things are going well never mind when they go horribly wrong. You have my sympathies!

I have to laugh at your work post, I once worked for a company that blocked porn online, we went to a trade show and dared people to come up with a site we couldn't block, first person of the trade show, guess what happened... porn on the screen, uh, um, oops. That wasn't suppose to happen!

Take deep breathes, this to shall pass.

"Corporate Accounts Payable Nina speaking... just a moment..." "Corporate Accounts Payable Nina speaking... just a moment..." "Corporate Accounts Payable Nina speaking... just a moment..." That was the only thing that went through my head was that scene from office space.

Glad your foot is on the mend.

OMG at the help desk, yikes...

Have a tequila beer thingy and put your tender tootsies up for awhile.

Glad to hear your foot is feeling better.

LOL at your help desk nightmare. I on the other hand would be the hyperventilating person on the other line. Numbers give me hives.

Hang in there, girl. I'm glad the chiropractor is helping.

Your work day sounded like pure misery. I hope it's all better by now.

Have you seen the recipes on greenlitebites.com? I love Roni's recipes. I have started making a double batch of the southwest chicken salad topper (think McD's SW salad, only healthy for you), and measuring out 3/4 cup servings into ziplock storage bag & freezing them. I put a couple handfuls of spinach in a ziplock bowl and take a bag of the frozen chicken mix to work, then I nuke it for 1 minute and pour it on the spinach and shake it up and it's a fab salad. I get 10 servings out of a double batch. And it's easy as pie to make (I grill chicken on the foreman grill, cut it up, and the rest is opening cans & measuring a few spices/honey/lime juice--I use diced tomatoes from a can instead of chopping anything, and I skip onions). Anyway, it's easy to cook & freeze meat-based recipes & use them as go-to meals. Hope you find something that works for you!!!
