I’m pretty surprised that I’m so awake & in such good spirits today. Jonny & I both had to get up at 4:30 for a change, so we both had that crazy annoying type of insomnia where you keep looking at the clock & thinking “Shoot. I have to wake up in 6 hours.”, then a little bit later it turns into “dang! I have to get up in 4 hours!”, etc. etc. The fun doesn’t end until your alarm goes off & you were just starting to get some quality Z’s. Haha. Either way, it was nice because even though we were both groggy, I helped Jonny wake up for work & he helped me wake up for my workout. I went to the gym, had a great session, came back, put the ingredients in the crockpot for dinner, turned it on, packed my food for the day, got ready for work & headed out!
I’m listening to “You! On a diet.” On my way to & from work right now. I can’t remember if I mentioned, but I’m a huge audiobook fan & I love this one. The authors are kind of cheesy as they read it, but luckily they get some help from a narrator. Very comprehensive, funny, & understandable book about the biology behind losing weight & why starvation & depravation doesn’t work. And I’m not a huge sweets fan anymore, but after hearing what happens in my body physiologically when I eat a Twinkie or pick up my dinner at the golden arches…ugh…well, it makes me want to think twice about every engaging in said activities again!
Work was…blah, today, but I’m really loving my new “if I’m hungry, I eat whatever & however much I’m hungry for as long as it’s clean” philosophy. I’ve pretty much got the planned clean dinners for the week down, but I’ve got to find time to make my lunches too. I got lucky today because I had some canned tuna, clean pitas, veggies, & clean condiments at work, but I’d prefer not to have to scrounge around. I’d love to have my food as ready as I am! Haha. Anyway, I studied on lunch. Now I’m on the skeletal system, which is intimidating but doable.
Jonny was very busy all day, but I got to chat with him on my PM walk, so that was nice. Now I’m just getting ready to pack up at work & head home for some quality time with the man, the cat, & the crockpot chicken, tomato & spinach
