What a day!
As often happens on Sunday night, I had terrible insomnia. I woke up about 2 hours after I went to sleep and then didn’t feel tired again until very early in the morning. While awake, I just read online articles and worried about random things outside of my control (What better way to spend time awake?) It was so difficult to wake up, and I did not feel very productive today! Often, being extremely tired is a trigger for me to overeat, but I didn’t feel particularly hungry today. I did have a craving for cookies this afternoon (and someone brought some into work for a birthday) but the thought of having to rationalize breaking my “experiment” after merely 3 days on this blog was enough of a deterrent and I survived the day cookie free. Here is what I ate:
3/4 cups whole milk
1-2 tsp. sugar (in coffee)
2 pieces light wheat toast, 1/2 cup fat free cottage cheese, apple
Vegetarian sandwich, 1 packet regular ranch dressing, green salad
Approximately 8 oz. fat free plain chobani yogurt, 2 packets spenda (I know–I’m working on the artificial sweeteners).
Kashi Mayan Harvest Bake
And, true to my marathon training plan, I rain three miles tonight after coming home from work. My husband and I went to the gym together–running (when all I wanted to do was sleep) took all of the willpower I could muster! I felt OK during the run, but felt very tired when I was finished. I am definitely looking forward to going to bed now.
No exercise planned for tomorrow (my next run is Wednesday) but I will likely have a very long day at work.
Sorry for the boring blog post–though just a warning, the next few days will probably be pretty boring due to the amount of time I will be working, which leaves my brain with few resources necessary to come up with even mildly interesting (much less insightful) blog posts. Thanks for reading!
Update: 1 had about 1 1/2 vegetarian hotdogs (on buns) last night before bed. (Fascinating, I know)
