I'm still here
Monday, June 27, 2016
I work 3rd shift as a courier on Friday and Saturday nights. My food gets weird because of the sleep schedule. I try to still fast at night and only eat once the sun rises. Friday I am up most of the day and eat like normal. I take a nap before work, then drink red bull and water while I'm driving. Saturday morning I have a breakfast shake, then when I get home I have a sandwich (usually a egg and English muffin sandwich), then go to bed. I get up around 4-6 pm. My husband deals with the kids and takes them out for meals (which I kind of need to talk to him about because I'm concerned it's not very healthy for them). Depending on what he has brought home from restaurants I may have left overs or I just have another meal shake. Saturday night it's harder to fast, so I pack apples and bananas, beef jerky, and cheese (plus a meal shake) along with my red bull. I could those into breakfast for sunday. When I get home I have a snack and go to sleep for a few hours (I try not to sleep too long because I want to be able to sleep that night). I actually do better eating on the weekends than during the week because I'm driving and don't have access to junk food. Occasionally I stop at McDonalds and get an egg Mcmuffin, but those are low in calories and filling. I only do that when I can tell I'm really dragging and need the extra energy.
This weekend went well I feel. My biggest mistake was watching TV and eating chips and salsa last night. I'm not sure how much I had and didn't track it. I can tell today that I'm tired and going to struggle with motivation to eat well and work out. I'll probably blog more about that later.
Right now I'm fighting with my daughter about getting her room picked up (oh joy)
