What does one do when they wake up at 3 in the morning?
I tossed and turned.
I willed myself to fall back asleep.
I turned the tv on, and then muted it knowing the whole time that having the tv on was the wrong thing to do.
I got up and changed a few things on my blog.
I read a few blogs.
I read a little of this book…
I must say that this book is pretty good. I wasn’t sure what to expect when I got it, but I had heard good things about it, and it’s a page turner. I read as much as I can everyday.
I tried again to will myself back to sleep… and finally I did.
Waking up a few hour later was a little difficult.
Not getting a lot of sleep might also be why my workout felt more like torture today. I started with my Zumba dvd. I loved taking Zumba class when I had a membership to my YMCA, but doing the video isn’t the same. I did 25 minutes and realized I hadn’t burned half the calories I should have, and I wasn’t enjoying the workout. I stopped and decided to finish it up on the treadmill. Ugh! I looked at my watch about every 30 seconds. I ran… I walked… I stopped thinking that maybe today just wasn’t one of my days. I have a goal.. 500 calories a day. I hummed and hawed and moaned and groaned, and after walking most of my workout I finished up with 60 minutes of working out and 501 calories burned. Success!
After working out I had 1/2 cup of plain greek yogurt and a few Nature Valley nut clusters.
Lunch was a mexican kind of salad. It consisted of romaine lettuce, guacamole, salsa, ranchero chicken, and a few crunched up tortilla chips… fabulous!
I’m not sure what’s going to be for dinner. We’ll be headed to the grocery store. I’m thinking it will be a sushi and soup kind of night.
And I went on Wegman’s website which has all of it’s nutrition info on it. I printed off the soup list to take with me so I can check the calories once I know what soups are available.
You can’t say that I’m not prepared! 🙂
