First day back at work

Yesterday was my first day back at work. Yikes!

First, I didn't even get out of the house until about 10:30 am. I had to go back at least once for things I forgot. Then, I almost fell asleep driving in. I think all those nights of insomnia followed by days of napping took their toll on me.

When I got to work, I was so tired and out of it. For example, I got my plant back from the colleague who was minding it for me and when I went to put it back on my shelf, I missed! So now there is potting soil all over the floor of my cube.

I didn't do anything too brain intensive but even what I did do tasked me. Today I want to actually fix a bug. We'll see how that goes.

I was also a lot hungrier and it felt like I was eating a lot more, but when I got home and checked off what I had eaten for the day on The Daily Plate, I hadn't even made it above 400 calories. I'm not sure exactly what the difference was. I did get in more plain fluids -- I had some tea with no protein in it -- but I thought I was having the same amounts of protein supplements as I had at home. Obviously not.

After dinner, I also had a major bout of intestinal distress. Not pleasant at all. I feel asleep afterwards and then found myself awake again at 1:00 am. But I made myself go back to bed this time.

Hopefully, today will go better.
