i just had four days off in a row. bliss.
i slept beautifully and lengthily every night. ahhhh. great sleep tops everything, if you ask me.
my eating was easy, gentle and intuitive. i ate what i wanted, when i was hungry. and if i wasn't hungry and felt like a cookie or some potato chips, i had some. but i really didn't have cravings or any desire to use food emotionally.
i realize how much more comfortable i am in the world. i did very little over the four days but i swear, i enjoyed each moment of each day.
i savored my morning coffee, spent glorious hours in bookstores, got a manicure, took long bubble baths, read wonderful books, went for walks, took myself out for lunch one day and dinner another.
i also lead an AA meeting, helped facilitate a workshop and attended a really good AA meeting, all with very nice people.
there was nice time with the guy i'm seeing. and we helped an elderly friend move to assisted living, which was emotional, but i'm glad we could help.
four perfect days.
i didn't cringe about coming back to work until 4 am this morning, when my eyes popped open, and i realized i wasn't going to be sleeping in today.
i'm now tired and my usual grumpy BUT i know i didn't waste one second of my time off. and there will be other days. heck, Saturday is just four days away. zzzzzzz
