Yesterday I was saved from myself and my foolishness by Gerrie, a lovely lady I work with. I was ready to start my shift and man did I want a chocolate bar. And I’d already bought the coffee – so I’m not even sure now why I suddenly need that bar – but I had it in my hands, ready to buy. Then we got to talking about the gym and how many calories I’d burnt in my workout – maybe 130.
Why would I want to negate my workout for a lousy chocolate bar? This is a good question – one I rarely ask myself. I feel a little off – let’s eat something.
Last night was the same thing – I couldn’t sleep. And thinking it over this morning, I kind of know why. I came home last night and followed my plan – hot tea, hot water bottle and into the PJ’s. Then I decided I could wash the dishes quickly while the water boiled for the water bottle. I noticed that my laptop hadn’t shut down, so I had to investigate that. Which of course led me to Facebook to check out possible baby pictures and what my friends were up to.
At 1 o’clock in the morning I was still up and of course – my solution to falling asleep is a snack – 2 muffins (homemade) with cheese and a cup of hot milk. I slept wonderfully after that!
Today I won’t leave the house without making sure that the computers are off. They have a way of waking me up when I should be shutting down!
I’m off to the gym, so have a great day!
