Last Sunday, I got everything I wanted to done (writing and housework). I even had enough time to watch HANSEL AND GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS. But, that night I slept terribly as indigestion visited me again.
Monday, the night before wore me down horribly. I almost skipped yoga, but didn’t. I did skip my one mile run after it, though. I managed to salvage my day and got tortured at night as my husband started parts of my birthday dinner (45 minutes to simmer the meat sauce for lasagna) and made my birthday cake.
Tuesday, was my 34th birthday. I did my writing and housework as usual. I also went and got my new hamster (and three neon tetras to keep Goblin King company). And I had cake and ice cream! In other words, a great day.
Wednesday, I had more cake… In my defense it was carrot with cream cheese frosting. Only haters can pass that up! Though, the fact I skipped my mile (again) after yoga probably didn’t help my cause. See, the son’s school called me while I was out and my running time was spent calling back to iron things out.
Thursday, a package from my father and step-mommy came. Two trays of Cuban pastries (from my baby brother) were in that package. My heritage has the worst food for you, but the yummiest! All hopes of resuming normal eating were lost. At least I did do my usual 3 miles that day.
Friday, was a snow day, so I didn’t exercise. The kids painted some plant pots for our “craft of the day.” I cleaned, edited, and waited for night to fall. Because, the adjustment period for my hamster was over! It was time to start taming/bonding. I know this will be a long process and I want to do it right this time.
Saturday, is when I’m writing this. It’s early afternoon and I’ve got the important stuff done: laundry is started, read a chapter of KNIT ONE, KILL TWO, and edited GRANDMA.

My big plan is to get back on track with my eating and exercising. I was half way to my end of round weight goal at the start of the week and then yummies happened… I’m no longer half way. [sigh] The other plan is to finish editing GRANDMA, take a reward day off, and start writing ALCHEMY. Of course, I’ll be continuing to work on gaining my hamster’s trust.
Is there a heritage food you can’t resist?
What January wins did you have? Any February hopes?
