Yesterday, I simply did not have enough time at work to fit in my nutrition - too much to do in just 3 hours in the morning before going into a 4 hour meeting for the afternoon at our Head Office. After the meeting I went grocery shopping which took a couple of hours as I wanted to make sure I got only fresh foods. It took longer in the fruit and vegetable section because I bought some produce I've never had before, so the decision and choice was not as quick as it is for other vegetables and fruits I'm familiar with. By the time I got home, it was 6pm, leaving only 1 hour for dinner so I took a simple route and bought two slices of cheese pizza while I was out shopping. I was going to have both for dinner, but after 1 slice, and because it was not the fresh vegetable route I'm used to, my body was not happy afterwards, so I refrigerated the second slice for my lunch today. (Notice that I didnít throw it out after an unhappy body from the first slice).
I had work to do at home that had to be done which took up most of my evening and before I knew it, it was 11pm. Two hours past my bedtime. But I didnít want to go to bed right away because I wanted to relax to a game of 4-suit Spider Solitaire; One game was not enough.
I obviously did not plan my time or meals around my ďunexpectedlyĒ busy schedule which resulted in too little calories. They are no where near where they should be for the calories I need every day.
I obviously excused bedtime over a game of cards that didnít stop after one game, which resulted in poor sleep. It was 1am by the time I got to bed knowing I would be getting up at 5:30am.
If I do not get organized about planning my time for getting my nutrition and proper sleep in I will not learn the importance in reaching my goal. If I donít get smart about this, I will continue to find excuses that result in obstacles I donít care to solve. This is not who I am striving to be. This does not align with my health goals. Obstacles can be overcome!
