A Work in Progress!

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!



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!
