Today - Okay
Monday, March 28, 2016
I had an okay day today. I started off really well. I got up at 5:45 to do some meditation and exercise. I got 22 minutes in of exercise. I also had a good breakfast and got everything ready for work and got to work on time (and my DS to school). All of this after having a very fitful night's sleep.
I seem to be having a lot of dreams lately that are highly emotional and often with me running around a lot, so I wake up spent and strung out emotionally rather than rested. That is something that I've found happens. It will happen more frequently as I get a better handle on my health and start loosing weight. Sometimes that is one of the reasons why I probably self-sabotague...because I'm afraid of my dreams. Especially the ones that are repeats and I know what is going to happen and it isn't pretty but I can't stop it from happening...those are even scarier.
Okay, but really, they are just dreams. I know I can learn things from my dreams, but I haven't quite mastered that art yet.
Anyway, I had a good morning. I was going a bit stir crazy at work though and by 3:30 I had to head home. Once I was in my home office, I was able to focus better. I have been working remotely a lot and find it is easier to focus when I don't have as much noise around me (like other people's radios).
I was doing really well. I even had 5 servings of fruits and veggies today!!! Then...I didn't have a good dinner planned. When I got home I asked what my husband wanted for dinner, but he wasn't hungry so we just had a fend for yourself night. We have some frozen stuff my son can fix in a pinch so I only had to worry about me. So what did I do? I ate a lot, I mean a lot, of the reese's miniatures, after I polished off my peanut butter sandwich that I had left over from lunch. Thankfully the reese's are almost all gone and I'm not planning on buying those again any time soon. So...something that I can take from today is to ensure that I always have something healthy for dinner, even on fend for yourself nights.
On another note, I spent some time tonight working on my revision of my novel. I worked through four short scenes tonight. I started working on a longer, harder scene, but decided to let it stew a bit and get back to it in the morning when I'm fresh and not foggy from so much sugar.
Tomorrow is a new day and I'm going to head to bed on time tonight so I can do a bit more exercise in the morning. I've also got my meal planned for tomorrow night: some left over ham, a baked potato and some frozen veggies (cooked of course). Okay, so now I have a plan so I won't short change myself.
