I am so glad that it is Wednesday. Half way through the week. These days, school is a bit of a challenge for me. My student load and other things have really been trying for me. It is only week 3 of school, but I am already burnt out. Anyways, I am trying to deal and accept. I'm trying to take steps to alleviate the stress so that I don't take it out on my family. Trying. I have not gotten it down, but I am working on it!
I have been eating good. I have lost a few pounds. I am pleased and proud of that. I am a huge emotional eater, so for me to be down a few right now is huge for me. I am limiting carbs and following what I did with Mike Moreno's 17 day diet that I did before. It worked so well. It is just so strict the first round. It's only 17 days though in cycle one so I can do it. I think cycle 2 is a lot like carb cycling. I am reading Chris Powell's book and hope to discover the how and what of carb cycling. He is inspiring. It is taking me forever to read it though. Between work and home, I don't have any time.
I have been making myself jog. I went on Sunday morning. I also went yesterday. I took my daughter with me on her bike. She just learned how to ride without training wheels and this is the first time she has gone with me. She challenged me because I had to go much faster to keep up with her to make sure she was safe and that no cars were coming. She did good though. 2.3 miles with some hills in there. She took one spill. It was her first major fall. It freaked her out a little, but she dried up her tears and hopped back on. It was so hot too. It dropped a bit to 95 degrees, which was better than the triple digits that I dealt with last week! Both of our faces were red!
The last two nights my son hasn't slept and last night my daughter was having nightmares, so my sleep is in a deficit again. More so than normal. I have come to be used to some sleep deficit, but the last two days are making things even harder.
Praying for a good night's sleep!
