So I just realized that I probably won’t be around a computer later tonight and won’t be able to post about the holiday festivities until tomorrow. I’ll write a mid- day today.
My sleep schedule is all messed up. I blame it on my schedule at work. Right not I’m working the midnight shift, but on my days off I try to sleep like the rest of the world does, which usually doesn’t work. I wake up between midnight and 1 and then can’t get back to sleep for hours. I often lay there frustrated. I don’t want to get up incase I can get back to sleep, but then I feel like I should get up and get stuff done. Last night I woke up around 1:00 and couldn’t get back to sleep until 4:00. I then got up at 7:00 to head over to my parent’s house for breakfast. My mom made some banana nut waffles… yummy! I had one with 1 sausage link, 1 slice bacon and some apple crisp. I also snagged some of the apple crisp for later.
After filling myself up on some yummy food, I headed back home for a much needed nap. My daughter let me sleep for about a hour before I had to get up and get lunch ready. I made a salad for myself.
I also had a tbs of Sesame Ginger Vinagerette on it. I think it’ll hold me over until dinner tonight.
With that I’m going to go drink a bunch of water to get hydrated for the drinks I’ll be having tonight. Everyone have a happy and safe rest of their Halloween.
Let me add that even though I’ve been writing down everything I eat, I don’t feel like I’m doing that well keeping up with my calories. I haven’t been eating too much, but I don’t feel like I’ve been as strict as I have been. I might have an extra latte, or a fun size piece of candy that I don’t calculate. I think it’s more that it’s my days off and I want to relax. Counting calories, measuring food, planning out my meals… it all feels like a second job sometimes. If I want to get where I want to be though, I need to buckle down. I can’t slack off on the weekends and ruin all the progress I’ve made during the week. Now that I realize this, I can work on doing better. I also did not do any exercises today! That adds a day to my 30 day shred. Well, there’s always tomorrow…
