Can it be Friday yet?

Man I am EXHAUSTED. I've been going to bed by 9pm every night because my energy is sapped. Now, I do get up around 5:30am every day feeling very awake but by 2pm, I feel like I'm going to pass out. And I'm still having vertigo spells, especially in the evening...I think it's just a culmination of working so much. Basically each day I've been out and about by 6:30am and I've been working until 5pm every night. Those are long days...and I find my energy is just gone. Thank you Jet Lag.

I have been walking every day but so far, no bike. My sneakers are broken...in the  back at my heel the plastic or somthing has popped through the fabric and is like a knife. It's SO sharp!!! I actually cut my FINGER putting the shoes on. So I'm back to an ugly old pair that does NOT fit well, so my feet are really sore. I need to go this weekend and get some good, new sneakers. The blister I have is healing but it's still painful to walk. It's not so back once I get moving but starting to walk and then when I slow down...ouch. Bleh.

Tomorrow I have another long day, I'm super exhausted and my head is POUNDING right now. I just cannot wait for the weekend to rest and relax, phew!

Food wise things have been going well. I had a few "splurges". I put them in quotes because I haven't gone over my calorie allottment, they're just thing I haven't planned but put into my plan after the fact. One was I got a skinny mocha latte at Starbucks; they're 110 calories in a tall. My reivew? DISGUSTING. It tasted like a hot slim fast shake...I couldn't even finish it. NASTY. It was chalky and foul...do NOT reccomend this to anyone. And I tried it cold today to see if it was any better...nope. I couldn't even drink it. Bleh. And the other "splurge" was a coworker made DELICIOUS raisin bran muffins...she offered them to me and she was very proud of them. I ate 1/4 of the muffin and not a bite more, I was very proud! THen I put it in my calorie counter on Sparkpeople and stayed totally on plan. Not a problem at all. And I totally bypassed the old donuts and bagels that they're begging people to take, haha, not tempted at all! Go me!

That's about it for now...I just have to get through tomorrow. TGIF!


  1. Bless ur heart. I do the same thing and I work til 8 pm every night.

  2. Raisin bran muffins sound good.... Good job on avoiding pointless temptations like day old donuts! Isn't it wild to think of things we wouuld eat before really caring about health and weight loss? It's so much more simple now (but not always 'easy') to see what is WORTH IT and what isn't. Keep your willpower and make good choices. You will win! :)
