Captain’s Log, Stardate 01.18.05
Well, I got a chance to do some walking today during my lunch break, and the knee is a bit more swollen than normal so I have to remember to ice it. It was nice to get some exercise, though. I felt healthy, anyways. I’ve gained so much weight since the surgery, it’s embarrassing.
I think my attitude about work is getting better. It still fluctuates between calm and panic, but on a whole I’m more accepting of this stage in my life, that God is using it to mold me. Am I becoming more patient? I hope so. It’s nice to be busy at work, although it’s very hard to get up in the mornings. I need to marshal my energy so I have more for my writing in the evening.
Writing: Got my 100 words done, but not much else. I did brainstorm a bit for my ms. I’ll have to do more today.
Diet: 1400 calories yesterday, minus the exercise at PT! Today so far it’s 900 calories, but I also walked during lunch, 100-150 calories. I hope I can keep that up. I hope my knee doesn’t go ballistic on me because of the extra stress.
