I Need my Routines!

Tuesday, January 24, 2012

Today I worked my second of three 7:30 am. shifts. Another was on Sunday, and the last one will be on Saturday.  Since neither of those days are gym days, it didn’t really matter.  Today it did!

At 6:30 am. I was walking to work.  Breakfast was still according to the routine – porridge and coffee – but NO WORK-OUT!  And man was I grumpy at 7:30 am!  I think I work through all of that at the gym and by the time I leave, I’m happy.  And I’m happy all day!

Or at least most of it.  Actually I’m mostly happy.  (The music at the gym intrudes on my I-Pod and that ticks me.)

Despite the “off” timing of things today I did manage to stay on my eating routine – for the most part.

At work I had a cup of Mocha Coffee – which is starting to inch towards a habit – when I have 3 quarters of course.

First break: 1 muffin and half a grapefruit.  Lunch: 2 cups of my soup concoction of yesterday – I measured it!), a toasted slice of bread with some mortadella lunch meat and that was it.  2nd break: The other muffin and the rest of the grapefruit.

At home I caught up on some stuff, had a spoon of peanut butter and went to the gym.  It’s amazing how time can just whip by.

Now I’m home from the gym, I had 2 cups of mixed vegetables and some ground turkey that I cooked up a while ago.  I love being able to freeze things and just popping them into the microwave!

That was today.  Tomorrow I can go to the gym first thing in the morning – and if I sleep well tonight, I’ll be at the gym at 6 am.  That’s my goal – I’ll let you know tomorrow if I succeed1

Have a good sleep everyone!



About Marcia Stehouwer

I have a great life (most days) and a small budget, so being frugal is one of my favourite hobbies. I started this blog after procrastinating for 3 months, on April Fool's Day. I knit, I read, I knit, I work... I am also about a quarter of the way through my goal to lose 100 pounds. So between knitting, working, reading etc., I also do some walking!
