Today


Tuesday, March 19, 2013

I am so tired right now. I still have one more hour at work, then an hour long drive home. I'm not used to these long days anymore.

I didn't go running this morning. Realistically, I don't get up at 4am to go running. It's just not who I am. I can't see it becoming me either.

I am doing what I can to get a run in after work though. I ate very well today. I am almost done my 8 glasses of water for today too. I will get in more, but I've almost got these ones already done.

It's really cold outside. I also need to go and get a prepaid card for my cell phone. The dog won't be able to come with me to get the card - she's too afraid of people. I can't leave her outside. She'll run away. She's done it before. She just panics. It's not a good idea to take her with to do that.

I don't want to overwhelm myself tonight, but I've got to do SOMETHING! I can't just keep sitting here doing nothing. I need to at least try today. 25 weeks passes way too quickly - I am running another half marathon in 25 weeks.

I am not as angry today. Mind you, I've been stuck at work for the past 10 hours already. I'm just tired.

I need to wake up. Water will help some. I will be sure to drink more water in the next half hour. I want to be awake when I get home. However, I don't want to have to pee the entire way. That's a long enough drive without bladder problems. lol.

I haven't found a happy medium for hubby and I yet. He seems to be a morning person. Not me. I need my sleep. I'm not about to get up at 3am.... Anyhow...

I really think I need to make some changes with regards to my breakfasts. I was hungry all morning. I ate my fruit, coffee, water, salad, and lunch all before 11:30 this monring. I think I really should look into cooking some Quinoa, and possibly also making a smoothie in the mornings. It might even get me out of my coffee habit. Maybe I could replace it with a tea habit again - so much better for me anyhow.

Time to get back to work. I was just taking a short break. Trying to clear my head and wake up.

Hope you all have a great day

    Tired is a better frame of mind than you have been in. If running after work is what works for you, then do that. I'm not a super early morning person either, no way could I get up at 4am to workout. Lots of couples are the same way and they make it work, so you guys can work it out too.

  Hope you are able to find the right balance for you ~I understand about your dog-our dogs freak out too-we can only take 1 (out of 3 dogs) to the park-the other 2 go nuts at every passer by-another dog-a squirrel etc... they too would run away if off the leashes. Hope you get some rest & find a good running schedule for yourself. Sometimes it just takes a little switching up to find what works for you. ((HUGS))

    Sorry you are having such a rough time - I have been plagued w/chest pain (don't worry, pure anxiety) & insomnia, there is FAR too much on my plate these days!
Yet these are portions I am just going to have to deal with, I can't trim them away...

    YOU NEED TO GET YOUR REST FOR YOUR BODY TO BE HAPPY I KNOW THAT IS EASIER SAID THEN DONE, I AM GLAD YOU ARE NOT AS ANGRY TODAY AND I LAUGHED AT YOU AND HUBBY HAVING DIFFERENT SLEEP HABITS, MY HUBBY AND I DO ALSO, HE IS MORNING AND I AM NIGHT AND HE THINKS EVEN IF I HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO SLEEP ALL NIGHT AS SOON AS IT IS LIGHT OUTSIDE I SHOULD BE UP AND RUNNING

    Sleep and rest would go a long way in helping you with what's going on in your life right now. 10 hours is a very long day.

How about a nice protein smoothie in the morning for breakfast? I also do them mid afternoon, too, sometimes. They pick you up and keep you going. Or a good protein bar in the afternoon. If you like Chocolate, I highly recommend the Zone Double Dark Chocolate Protein bars. Tastes like a candy bar to me, and satisfiesboth my chocoholic and my sweet tooth.
