Zen and the art of intuitive eating

So I went to the nutrionist today, only she's really more a diabetes educator. I don't really need education on that per se, but apparently she teaches a whole lifestyle change approach that I can actually get behind. She focuses on learning to eat when, what and how your body wants, not how some diet or food plan or society or who/whatEVER wants you to. She feels like I do that the generations of people dieting have rendered them unable to listen to their body's cues. So, it's going to be interesting. I have to keep logs not only of what I eat, but when, how, where, how I'm feeling... plus I have to do reading assignments. It also felt really good that when she asked who would be supportive of me, I could say my friends, my boyfriend AND my family, although I think the first two will be much more supportive.

Then I went to work to find that my team had been given an award for excellent service! Not only did we get recognition from our bosses, we're getting a $100 bonus on our next check! Totally unexpected and thrilling. I'm not turning down the money, but I would've been happy just getting the acknowlegement that what I do matters. So much of the time when you do tech support all you hear are the problems and complaints, so it's nice to know that I am really AM making a difference.

Then I talked to meh pimp for over an hour on my drive home. We have not had nearly enough time to talk lately so that was very cool. There was much looking forward to Nimbus.

And speaking of Nimbus, did you know that the price increases again in 9 days? So if you haven't yet registered, you really should register before March 16th. /public service announcement

Now I must get to bed, because I of course forgot that tomorrow is my early day at work and I have to get up at *GROAN* 6:30 instead of 8. Oh, the humanity.

I want you to burn, burn for me baby, like a candle in my night

Work was okay. We had potluck and the food was really quite good. Work was not too bad. Decided to call my boyfriend on my cell as I drove home, which while extremely nice, was a poor decision because of how much it costs to call international on a mobile. -.- Must learn some amount of restraint. Bah, I hate restraint.

Picked up new contacts from eye doctor. They feel rather strange but I am getting used to them. Then I stopped at the drugstore for painkillers (OW OW OW) and did not buy condoms as the selection was crap, although I did in fact buy easter egg-shaped Playdoh. I bought Playdoh because I have given up on trying to find out where they sell stressballs. All I want is a nice ball of gel or goo to play with while at work, but I have no idea where to get one. But I found Playdoh.

I'm not a politically-minded person. I don't follow all the issues; I don't feel qualified to give opinions on such things. But I do feel qualified to say that I do not want to see war happen, I think it's a horrific idea, I'm scared and I feel completely helpless. And there's really nothing more that can be said. -.-
