Today will be weird. Because of the primary elections, I work from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. then from 9 p.m.-midnight. Normally I work 10 a.m.-6 p.m. on Tuesdays and head to the gym after work. Today I will jump rope or throw in a cardio DVD on my break. Unfortunately, Riley doesn’t like the jog stroller anymore, so I can’t run.
Menu: (* means not yet eaten)
1. 1/2 protein shake–8:00
2. Egg sandwich/Propel water–10:30
(reduced-fat 100-calorie popcorn, 1/2 Diet Pepsi–11:30–cause I was still hungry)
3. Protein bar/Diet Coke–1:50
4. Salad/water/two dark chocolate Hershey’s kisses–4:30
5. Chicken sandwich, Baked Doritos/Diet Mt. Dew–6:30
6. Protein bar/water–9:30
Also took multivitamin, calcium & CLA.
Got up at 7:38–I’m getting closer to my wakeup goal–and got several things done in the house. I cleaned out two old jewelry boxes and transferred jewelry to the armoire I got for Mother’s Day. (Yes, it’s taken me that long to get it done.) I cleaned out some more space in the closet. I found some Gap shorts that I will use to measure my progress. They’re 14s and we all know Gap sizes run small. 😉
I took down two pairs of blinds for cleaning outside later. I probably won’t put the ones from the kitchen back up. The windows face the backyard and I don’t really care if our dog or the neighbor’s cows see in. No one else can, unless they use binoculars and if they’re that desperate, more power to ’em.
I threw in a load of laundry and made some eggs and toast, stripped our bed and put fresh sheets on.
Worked for 5 hours, then took Riley outside to play. Filled her pool, washed the blinds, folded the laundry. Back inside, I gave Riley chicken noodle soup, while I ate a chicken sandwich. The turkey didn’t get thawed today. We also painted some pictures, and read “Going on a Bear Hunt.”
Now it’s time for the second round of work. All in all a good day!
