Chugging Along and Getting Nowhere
Tuesday, December 10, 2019
Pretty much nothing has changed over the last few months. I am still working four 10s, which has been tough on me. I have been really considering going back to 8s but that Friday off is so nice! But the question is - is the Friday off worth not getting any down time for those four other days? I am not sure about that one. I am waiting to decide until the new year since I am taking off the Thursday after Christmas and after New Year's Day (giving me two 5-day weekends in a row! Woot!) I would love to hear people's thoughts on this though.
So speaking of which - I'm not getting my workouts in. We get 3 hours at work, on the clock, to exercise, but it must be scheduled and approved in advance and we're super busy. Besides, I'm always tired from the long days. But I have a race in February that I need to be serious about so I need to get those workouts in! Ideally, I want to workout daily. It is the only way I stay consistent. Otherwise, I find too many excuses to skip it!
Nutrition is hit or miss. I do okay and then the cookies show up in the break room just as I'm running low on energy. Or we go out to dinner and I have a total disregard for calories for sake of an enjoyable, carefree night. We've been eating out a lot actually. I got tired of trying to cook and the hubby complaining about ingredients. Plus I was getting really fatigued from stress and IBS flares that I just sort of let him take over the cooking. He likes really plain, bland food so I think we end up eating out because I don't want yet another meal of grilled/broiled protein and steamer veggies. Healthy, filling, oh so boring. LoL. My flares have been less so I could cook more but - back to those 10s - I come home 2 and a half hours after him so it makes sense for him to prep dinner. (Aside: If I switch to 8s, it is doubtful I would get home earlier - I would probably go in later.)
Anyway! That's all I've got for today. Things have been fine otherwise. Just taking things day by day!
