Yesterday went pretty well. I ate every 3 hours. I did Crossfit in the morning and then kept busy all day. I got done things I needed to get done. I felt pretty darn good about the day and ended up tired. Nice. Let's look at what I ate:
Early morning: string cheese and coffee with heavy cream
Breakfast: 2 slices of bacon, 2 eggs, avocado
Lunch: Huge salad with poppy seed dressing, pumpkins seeds, craisins
Snack: couple of slices of uncured salami and string cheese
Dinner: steak, baked potato with butter and sour cream, bacon wrapped scallops, broccoli and beans.
That was it. I did not eat after dinner. Yeah me!!! Dinner looks like a lot but it really wasn't. I didn't finish my steak or potato and left the table satisfied but not stuffed in any way. Between the snack and dinner I walked the dogs and got hungry. I might need to make that snack a little more substantial in order to not get hungry when walking the dogs. But I don't want it to be too large and then I'm not hungry for dinner. Balance, balance.
As for my activity yesterday. I went to Crossfit in the morning and it almost killed me - but then it always does. Then I worked on a paper that was due and got that turned in by noon. After lunch, instead of laying down which is what I normally do, I headed into the spare room to work on some costumes I'm making. When Hubby came home we hiked up the hill and picked some avocados from across the street, then it was time to walk the dogs. So not bad.
I like that routine. Crossfit then schoolwork for a little while, then projects. After Crossfit some rest is good, so that's a good time to do schoolwork. But after lunch is my danger time for napping, so that is a good time to work on projects. I like it.
I did however have the worst night's sleep I've had in a long, long time and I'm not sure why. I went to bed around 9:45 after taking a shower because it was so freaking hot. Bella was in bed and was panting up a storm. I'm not sure why, it was miserably hot but I kept worrying that something was wrong with her. She finally stopped panting for a while around 10:30 and I may have dozed off then, I'm not really sure. But she started panting again not too long later. Finally, around midnight, she got up from the bed and went into the hallway - her usual sleeping spot - and after panting and moving around, settled down and finally went to sleep. Not long after that I fell asleep. I got up at my usual 6am, so I got a whopping 5 hours sleep. Today should be awesome. Right now she is laying on the floor at my feet sleeping away. I would be angry but she's too cute to stay mad at.
So except for a loss of sleep, yesterday was pretty darn successful. I am going to follow the same template and try to make today just as successful. Wish me luck.
