I just read what all of you said on my blog yesterday about my day off. Then, I realized how my day did not go as planned today. The only thing I have done so far is my power walk and I did 2.5 miles instead of just 2. My friend is not feeling well, so didn't want to go to Curves. That meant try and find a ride to Curves and belly dance or at least belly dance. My dad had a meeting, my FIL doesn't like to leave my MIL alone, so I ended up stuck at home. Did I say how much fun it was being blind? I hope you know I am being facetious. Did you know that faceitious was the only word with all 5 vowels in order? HeeHee.
I had a really bad night. My husband was snoring the roof off then Jack started wheezing. Every time I dozed off one of them would start making weird noises. I know this is wrong of me, but I get so mad at my husband. He was doing so well and lost 25 pounds at the beginning of summer and after he broke his knee he just totally gave up and gained it and more back. He is at his heaviest and I know that is why his snoring is so horrible. I wish I had a recording to play for you. It is amazingly loud and I don't know, just horrible sounding! He has no sex drive, no energy and just sits on the couch and watches TV and yes, he eats. We buy healthy at home, but he is gone for 12 hours or more a day and who knows what he is eating out there? I'm mad. I know this is hard. God knows I know it is hard. It is not like I'm losing like crazy myself, but at least I try. It all just makes me want to cry. I know he is killing himself and I don't think he cares.
So, a night with 0 sleep but yummy smelling oatmeal cooking.... It was yummy, but awfully bland. I used 0% fat evaporated milk instead of 2% and then sprinkled some brown sugar on it. That helped alot. It needed a bit of sweetness. It is a very soupy oatmeal, so you might want to lessen the water or maybe try steel cut oats if you make it. What I really liked was that it was ready and waiting for me and I ate breakfast and went to bed for a few hours after my husband left and Jack stopped greeting the neighborhood. I have these wonderful Pampered Chef 1 cup bowls with lids that I divided the oatmeal into and then put all but 1 in the freezer! I'm going to eat the 1 for breakfast tomorrow. It did keep me full for a long time today.
I did my power walk and then took a nice, long hot shower and deep conditioned my hair. I'm ready for the week! Tomorrow I have a dentist appointment at 8:15 and then will go to Curves. I plan to get at least 30 more minutes of cardio in today plus some lunges! It won't be my usual Monday, but I'll at least be doing something which is always better than nothing!
