Ugh, I am still completely wiped out. It’s been over a week now and I REALLY can’t wait to get a bit of energy back. I haven’t had a full night’s sleep in over a week and I am not adjusting to it well. I’ll be so screwed once we have children.
I’ve been doing all the little things I can think of to try and improve my sleep: forcing myself to workout even though I’m exhausted, no sugar, reading before bed rather than watching tv, earlier bedtimes; unfortunately none of that has really worked. I’ve seriously contemplated taking a nap in my car at lunch on several days now. Only thing stopping me…no pillow. Oh well, hopefully we’ll turn a corner here soon.
Breakfast: I had a dentist appointment in the morning, so I had a little more time for breakfast than I usually do. I took advantage by making one of my favorite weekend breakfasts: oatmeal (way overcooked so its almost solid, mushy oatmeal is the worst), vanilla greek yogurt, sliced banana, and a sprinkle of cinnamon.
Morning Snack: Banana again, I didn’t plan that well.
Lunch: A big, yummy salad of spinach, tomatoes, green pepper, carrots, quinoa, chipotle roasted sweet potatoes, black beans, and avocado. Unfortunately, I had a meting that ran long so I didn’t end up eating my lunch until around 3. It was so late that I had gone past starving and wasn’t even hungry anymore. I was able to make it through about 2/3 of the salad though.
Afternoon snack: Yummy apple. We’re rocking the Fujis this week and loving them.
Dinner: Meatball subs and salad. I try not to eat red meat very often and because I do most of the cooking, that generally means that Hubs doesn’t eat a lot of red meat anymore either. For the most part he’s ok with that, but the one thing he really misses are meatballs. Hubs is very Italian, so meatballs are sacred. For him, turkey meatballs are not meatballs, they are an abomination. So every once in awhile I throw him a bone and make the real thing. And I have to admit, they are pretty delicious.
Homemade meatballs, homemade sauce, bread straight from the bakery, his Nana would be proud. (And no I did not make all of that on a weeknight, are you crazy? I defrosted it from 2 weekends ago. C’mon son.)
I added a big salad of spinach, goat cheese, and beets salad to mine to round out the meal. Soo good.
Sidenote: I watched Monday’s episode of How I Met Your Mother last night and LOVED it. Such a great episode, I can’t believe we finally got to see Weekend at Barney’s. (Also, “Dude you’re a grown man, why are you throwing a Tantrum? I died). I can’t believe there are only a few more episodes left. Tear.
Dessert: None today, trying to avoid sugar to see if it helps my sleeping (so far not really).
Water: 2 full Camelbacks at work and 2 big glasses at home, so about 80 oz for the day.
That’s it for me today. Hopefully we’ll be back to regular posts tomorrow. Happy Hump Day!
