Day 9: Monkeys on backs, and getting rid of them
Since I did all that cooking yesterday, today’s goal was to accomplish things and get them out of the way so I don’t have to worry about them over the weekend. That meant paying bills, doing my schoolwork, cleaning the apartment, laundry, etc.
It’s a good feeling to get things done and out of the way.
That’s not to say that everything was sunshine and rainbows. I had a bit of an emotional breakdown today that even exercise couldn’t help. It did give me the energy to get schoolwork done just to get my mind off things. I don’t know if this was hormones or the fact that I didn’t sleep well. And I REALLY didn’t sleep well. Kept waking up to bad dreams on the verge of nightmares, causing all kinds of anxiety. They were all “fiction” dreams…dreams of PvP in WoW, for example, so as far as I could tell they weren’t triggered from real-life stresses. Hopefully tonight’s sleep will be better.
3/4 cup Chocolate Cheerios
1/2 cup 1% milk
1 piece Pepperidge Farm Whole Grain White bread (toasted)
~1 tsp olive oil
2 slices turkey bacon
1 Pepperoni pizza Lean Pocket
1 medium apple
1 Salmon Wellington
1 large salad: ~ 1 1/2 cups Romaine lettuce hearts, 1/2 baby cucumber
<1 tbsp Caesar dressing
5 small red bean paste steamed buns
Day off since I’m trying to start slow-ish so I don’t burn myself out.
Got all 3 liters in!
Got enough sleep, but I don’t know if it was restful. Kept waking up out of discomfort, bad dreams, and simply not sleeping well.
Tomorrow brings my third day of 100/200/200, and here’s to hoping that sleep goes better tonight.
