Reilly-1, Us-0

Monday, February 13, 2012

Sleep is going well...

Next problem...weekends!!

I need to get back on track as far as writing down food. I'm now starting the Reilly exercise plan. Reilly is my sister's wild labrador and she will be staying with us for a month while my sister heals from surgery. So far, it is Reilly-1, Us-0. Reilly decided to spread our garbage all over the house late last night. Sigh. She has stayed with us once before. She must go for a walk every day or else she gets too wound up and trashes the house. Plus the whine gets obnoxious. Walking her is a challenge too because she pulls so darn hard. I put the choker on her and she is instantly a better dog. I just have to find it! She and the cat are battling every chance they get too. Reilly thinks Sebastian is a toy and Sebastian is trying to establish that he is king of the house. The cat won't back down and neither will Reilly. Good times.

My goal for this week is write EVERYTHING down on my food schedule and work out at least 30 min a day.

    Our lab is great, but you can really tell when he hasn't had his walk. He behaves when DH (also known as "alpha dog") walks him but he's pretty sure he outranks me in the pack hierarchy.

Good luck on your month with Reilly!

Sleep Week 4: Day 1

Wednesday, January 11, 2012

To bed: 10:30p
Fell asleep: @11:00p
Woke up: 6:30a

Energy level: Good

Last ate before bed at 4:00p. We went to the symphony and had to get there early so that meant an early dinner. Didn't get hungry though. Thirsty more. Had some water when I got home. Felt better.

Worked out yesterday and today at noon.


Day 2 and Day 3 of Sleep Challenge

Friday, January 06, 2012

Day 2: Stopped eating at 7:30p and went to bed about 10:45p. Restless night. I had a dental appointment in the morning I was very worried about. Amazingly enough I was still suprisingly alert all day.

Day 3: Stopped eating at 7:00p and went to bed about 11p. Snuck back into old habits again. I was on the computer until I went to bed playing Zoo Tycoon. Very addicting game. Needless to say, despite a full night's rest, I'm a little tired today. I woke up very hungry too. All day I've been off as far as hunger. Usually I eat a snack at 10:00 am and 3:00p. Today I'm hungry earlier. Grrrr I was starving through excercise class as I had eaten my snack a little earlier than usual and didn't have backups with me. Didn't want to eat my 3p snack cuz I'd be up a creek at 3.

Looking forward to the weekend!


Week 2: Sleep Challenge (Day 1)

Wednesday, January 04, 2012

My goals for week 2 are to get to bed an hour early (10:30p) and to quit eating 3 hours before bed time.

Last night I went to bed at 9:30p (watched my television show which ended at 10:30p) and went to sleep. Hubby got up about 5:30a and I was awake until the alarm went off at 6:30a.

I last ate at 7:30p.

All in all, I am much more alert this morning. Yesterday was a different story. I drug through the entire day. (Course it was also the first day back at work after a long vacation!)

Happy New Year everyone!

Monday, January 02, 2012

I set my new years goals and have stuck to them so far! :). Need to continue my sleep diary. I've been off for a week so have been busy with other stuff.

Took the dog for a walk at a local park. Saw some older guy running with jeans on and a plaid long sleeve shirt. I thought good for him running no matter what the outfit. As I got to the bottom of the hill there were two police cars in the park. He ran up to them and started pointing up the hill. He was huffing and puffing so bad I thought he was going to pass out. One officer was just handcuffing one young man and the other headed up the hill. I didn't find out what happened. I redirected our course which took me on a different path.

You never know what story will unfold when you go for a walk.
