Well, camping and climbing while on the verge of having the flu has finally taken its toll. Although the flu never really set in, I feel weak and sickly, and unable to do the things I'm used to doing. The thing about climbing outdoors too is that you don't really have time to eat a really decent meal. You're out hiking the whole day, trying to find the way to the climbs, and then you get too caught up in climbing to even care. So I'm feeling pretty malnourished now.

In addition, since I'm not at John's anymore, I don't have the usual snacks at my fingertips. I know it's hard, but I still want to stay healthy even while working in an office. So I've been trying to resist the chocolates and muffins and pastries that people leave out for everyone to have, and contenting myself with carrots and apples. Not enough though. So today I loaded up on groceries from Trader Joe's and Whole Foods. I might have bought too much, given that I was shopping on an empty-feeling stomach (I had dinner but still felt hungry - go figure).

I've reached a roadblock in this project that I'm on, can't seem to figure out the programming logic to solve the problem. I was distracted the whole day, couldn't sit still. I hope tomorrow will be a better day.

I'm glad though that I seem to be getting along well with the people I work with. Ray and Maritza have been especially friendly to me. A day never goes by without at least Ray checking up on me and sharing a joke or two. It's nice to feel welcome.

Anyway, I'm looking forward to the weekend - although we're staying local, we're still climbing at Echo Cliffs in Malibu. Sport climbing this time, which I seem to have forgotten how to do, given how I performed at the gym last night. Geez! But for some reason, it seems that crack climbing now is more intuitive for me. Hand jamming feels natural to me. I just need to build up the strength, I suppose, and get used to how it feels. I can't wait to try it again!
