Hurray it has begun! Thank you for joining me on this journey!
As I had my first shot this morning as I waited on live help 100th in the cue line (better than 300 last night and my wifi kept booting me off and punting me back to 300 grumble grumble), I realised 'I won't be home tonight until 9! How am I going to bring my 2 oz of ningxia with me to this jazz society meeting I have to attend?
And then, out of nowhere, I saw it. My hello kitty thermos.
Yes, dinner is provided tonight, and everyone can ask what I'm drinking out of my thermos, but I am going to make this work! Also, I don't care that I'm in my early 20's, I love hello kitty and the fact that she is on my thermos makes life a little bit better.
Man, am I ever glad my ningxia red came yesterday! Today I substitute at my favourite school again in a classroom called the ABC program. It helps children with focus issues, anger issues, and more, to learn in a safe environment. I actually didn't mind only teaching 4 kids yesterday. I look forward to it again today! Immediately after I have to head into the office for my other job, grab some board games for one of my families, drop it off, and head to my meeting which is from 430-830 (I said I will post my blog between 7-8 pm MST and I still will. I will have my laptop, and I'm hoping wifi will be there. If not, I post it at 9 with my SINCEREST apologies. I'm writing the bulk of this post at 7am just for you guys.)
But since I had 2 shots yesterday (1 as soon as I opened the box as you saw last post, and 1 mixed with 1 cup of water and 1 drop of lemon essential oil) I feel more energetic, my appetite feels more controlled, and I feel like I have more motivation. We will see how many of these stick with more time in the challenge.
Update 6:44 pm: I had 1 shot now, and am waiting for our pizza at this meeting to come so I could have my last and second shot. And today, I felt so much more energy, so much happier and whether or not ningxia did this, it has been a great day! Hurray for ningxia challenge day 1!
