Day 15 - Tough one Today, but I am STILL on track!

Tuesday, April 08, 2014

Today was a really tough day. It began with a rough night of sleep with my daughter waking us up with nightmares. When I was woken up again at 5:30 ( I am normally up at 6:00), I rolled out of bed to start my workout. All 30 minutes was pathetic - my energy level was non-existent! But, I still got it done! emoticon

Stayed on track with my diet, but it was close. I was feeling ravenous when I went to pick up my daughter at 1:30 for her appointment. We had to fill up on gas on the way back, and we both stopped for a snack at the gas station. I had almonds, but lots of calories. emoticon

When we got home, all I could think about eating was a small ribeye that was still in the freezer. I ate it like a starving woman! Maybe my body is telling me that I need more protein and sleep. So, with that in mind, I am off to bed! Good night all, and happy Sparking!

    You know, I totally think you are right on about the protein. If I eat too many carbs at one setting, I actually respond by feeling sluggish. When I balance out each 15 grams of carbs with 7 grams of protein...I stay satisfied so much longer and have more energy. It took me a LONG time to figure that out. I will even add a 1/4 of cottage cheese to my yogurt to balance it. :)

I am so sorry to read your babyjoy is having nightmares. My daughter use to also. Its heartbreaking . I hope both you and she can get a good nights rest.
