Yesterday was one of those days where I don't even remember what I did. I remember I did weigh myself and the scale said I was back down to my original low- 354. I didn't even get excited or frustrated giving it a sort of shrug, since I am not trying to focus on it much.

Maybe you just need to write a mean blog about your scale and then it behaves.

I know yesterday's melancholy mood came from lack of sleep. I was up till 3am on the previous night before I finally just took a vicodin to fall asleep. Then of course the baby was up at 7am, so needless to say I was ready for bed again by eternity away from the end of my work day (when NaNa claims baby or the father comes homes for her)

I tried to stay entertained, but I know I did a lot of bored eating as the day went on. I've never had a problem with sleep before and now i know why Sparkpeople promotes 8 hours a night- it REALLY does affect your mood, which in my case affects my snacking.


It also affected my workout. I did NOT feel like doing any cardio (barely jogged in place for 2-3 minutes), so I settled for yoga. I did improve many of my scores on the WiiFit by 20 some-odd points, beating my old personal best as well as my cousin and my mom's Wii scores. That means I am getting much stronger! Yay!


During my husband's lunch call he called me with a "guess what?" and I sleepily said "what?" expecting either a good work story or a bad work story and he said "Caley's birthday party is THIS saturday" Well that woke me the heck right up, darn near almost made me cry, this WHOLE last paycheck I have been thinking "we have a whole nother paycheck before her party"- so we paid medical bills! I immediately texted my friends and said "don't forget caley's party is this weekend, because I most certainly DID forget" ooops.

At least we had the room reserved WELL in advance. It's a little classroom at the nearby rec. center. VERY cute. Little tables, little chairs, a play kitchen and the best part of all- A DOOR. Because I don't want to lose any of the little two year olds that are invited, nor do I want their mothers not able to enjoy the party because they are worried about their kid taking off.

My mom even offered to buy pizza for us. She knows how much I budgeted last week for bills and I wouldn't say was amused by the fact that we forgot but knows how the budgeting stress goes.


The good news is that I did get to bed at 9pm and husband let me sleep in to 8:15 today. LOTS of catch up. Now I just need to get back on the food tracking and workout wagon.

    emoticon ! Even a little bit of exercise is better than non at all!

Lack of sleep is a killer. My advice for if this happens again is: sleep when the little one has her nap. So long as its not a habit that happens everyday, it will do you no harm. It just gives you that little bit of will to live!

Good luck with the party, im sure it'll all go fine.

    Well sounds like you made up for the lack of sleep. Don't worry about the forgeting a birthday party, I barely keep track of my 4, and I only do theirs 2 days a year. lol Wishing you lots of luck. And tell your little one we wish her a wonderful Birthday. My 2 youngest will be 6 years old and 2 years old March 1, and March 6th. My does time fly. emoticon on the workout. It's way better than nothing, especially when you beat your own scores.

    I don't know what's better news...your mother paying for pizza or you getting back on track. Hope the party goes well and you don't implode. I'd miss you if you did, so stay healthy. I love watching you go though life. I don't have any children so I'm fascinated by how it all plays out. Hugs all around!

    Yeah--lack of sleep definitely affects me. Right now, for instance, I am contemplating a 3rd cuppa when I KNOW I'm trying to limit myself to 3 a day, and I KNOW I will need that one after lunch, if not sometime in the evening, like I needed last night--I ended up having a 4th cup last night but I made it half-caf...

Ooh, wait!

That means the cup I had this morning was the rest of last night's pot--also half-caf. Yay--I'm not losing my mind!

Anyway... I hope y'all have LOTS of fun at the birthday party. The room you rented sounds like a great place... I wish we had something like that around here (THIS Year, oh, yay, we're supposed to be opening the Children's Museum, which will be AWESOME!)

It sounds like you're doing great work with the yoga. I've been trying to get more involved in some yoga to improve my balance and tone and flexibility, but it hasn't made it high enough on my priorities yet. I used to watch Steve Ross do yoga on a show called Breathe--the Oxygen channel. He made it SO fun and oh so challenging, and now it seems like all yoga gets compared to his in my mind, and none of it stacks up very well.

I ought to see if he's on Youtube or anything. But you might like to check him out--that show was awesome!
