I had a really long day yesterday. I didn't go to bed, deciding that if I had to drive Ray to work I might as well do my grocery shopping. Then I wouldn't have to make a separate trip. I'm trying to drive the car only when I absolutely have to. And if it were to break down, at least there is no traffic at 4am. And no one in the store so that's cool too hehe.
So my day went like this: No sleep, bring Ray to work, grocery shopping, get home around 5am, (dark and deserted and some strange guy hurrying up to me while I'm going in the house, I hurry and get in and shut the door and he left without knocking or anything) scan all the groceries (I don't think I've mentioned that before, I am a member of this HomeScan thing, supposedly helps all you consumers when I scan EVERYTHING that is bought from this household lol) Take a 4 hour nap, Get up and clean my house because MIL is coming over, get pissed at Ray, make up with Ray. MIL is a no show, a bunch of unnecessary stress with the car because of Ray's brother and my step dad both just being sooooo unreliable, Mom calls and gives me more stress, realize I truly have no one I can count on (besides Ray), go to my sons school orientation, come home Ray makes dinner and it's delicious, over eat and feel like shit, forget to to the treadmill till about 11:30pm, am so full that I almost don't get on it (but I did it!), Play this stupid game my son has me addicted to now, time to do blog but too tired, go to bed. The End :)
My son is going to be in middle school!!! That is just... crazy!!! 6th graders are on the 3rd floor, yes that means I had to walk all the way up there. It wasn't to bad, I was sweating some after a while but it was just hot I think... Saw a couple teachers that taught when I went there, so crazy. One remembered me, that was nice! She remembered the names of my brothers too. She said "I would always think, Why can't you be more like your sister?!?!?!" haha, that was funny. She said "You were the good one." I said "At least SOMEONE realizes that!" haha, she gave me a hug and everything. It was weird... but also really nice. So surprised she remembered me. She probably felt bad realizing I had to go home and live with these bad ass kids!!! LOL.
My son will be going to 6th grade camp at the end of THIS month. I had forgotten all about it! So he will be starting middle school and leaving me for 3 days all in the same month!!!!! He is getting too old... I just don't know how this happened, really. Where did the time go???
I was so busy and wasn't hungry at all. That has been the pattern lately... I wonder if it's the coffee??? I only recently started drinking it and maybe it helps with the hunger? Always hungry by dinner time though... and last night I did not do well. I'm sure you know by now that pizza and tacos are my downfall....
What I ate yesterday:
Breakfast @3:30am before I left: 'Italian' Sandwich, 5 baby carrots, 3/4 tbs light ranch (That's what I was hungry for lol...) water
Lunch: 1 serving of crab salad with Special K Crackers
Dinner: 1 soft taco, 1 hard taco, taco salad, 1 1/2 cup spanish rice, water
Snack: 1 hard taco, 1/2 cup spanish rice, water
Total Water: about 50 oz
First time trying the Special K crackers... I got Savory Herb. I really like them. Not so much with the crab salad because the flavor is pretty strong, but plain. Or if I can remember to buy some laughing cow cheese!! Been going to try it and always forget! There are 90 calories per 17 crackers, it says so on the front of the box LOL. But a serving size is 24 which is 120 cal. I'll go with the 17 crackers, that should be plenty :)
That snack was very shortly after I had eaten dinner. So really I guess it was more like a delayed second helping, and I DID NOT need it. Oh I was sooo stuffed. I haven't felt like that in a long time. I felt sick. You know that time when you drank to much and you said "I'm never drinking again"... well maybe you don't lol. But it was like that. Of course it's not the same, because I have to eat... but I'm going to really start eating SMALL portions. I don't ever want to feel like that again!!!
Even though I felt I might puke, and made the kid tie my shoes, I got on the treadmill :)
15 minutes/ .52 mile
Total days in a row: 23
I want to up the miles a little every week. I committed to that last week and figured I would do it naturally, since I was going to try and do a mile a day... but that didn't happen this week. SO if I want to make this weeks total more than last weeks, I have 1.67 miles to walk today. I am going to try my best... maybe even get on it twice if I have to :)
