I am fighting sleep today.
I didn't get up until almost 10:30 and I really, really, really had to pull myself out my warm, comfy bed. I pulled on workout clothes and did Level 1 of The 30 Day Shred and then 1 hour of yoga. After
Then...out of the bath, dried off and started to read for a bit, I caught myself several times nodding off so I finally gave up and pulled the comforter over me and closed my eyes.
3 hours later I woke up feeling refreshed and alert...but so hungry!!
Quick lunch of Thomas' bagel thin, tomato and cheese and a cup of coffee and I feel like I can take on the day...um..yeah...at 4 o'clock! The only thing on today's agenda at this point is to drive my son's girlfriend back to Milton, do a load of laundry and get in a walk. I may try to stay up a bit later to make sure I sleep through the night.
Dinner is going to be easy and quick as well, some grilled haddock and oven roasted vegetables.
Hope you are all having a great weekend.
Oh, just to clarify regarding a comment Matt left on yesterday's post about The End of Overeating, the author doesn't say to NEVER eat out - that was my generalized take on his message. I don't subscribe to the deprive yourself of everything school of weight loss and I don't think I could make it through my entire life never eating out again. I think the problem, for me personally, is that I don't use eating out as a substitute for a meal I would eat at home - I use it as an "event" and eat foods and quantities of foods that I would not eat at home. Events are ok, once in a while, but when it's once a week, that one meal can undo all the calories I've saved all week and leave me feeling bloated, heavy and mad at myself - so it's just not worth it to me anymore. I still go out, of course I do, it's a social thing too, right? But I now try to think of it as a meal and not an event - sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.
