A late night....or early morning?

Well, I took my mom to the airport yesterday. It required me getting up at 4am and of course, I couldn't sleep the night before, I usually can't when there's something important going on the next day. Needless to say after I got back home about 1pm or so, I was exausted. I stayed up until about 5pm but I just couldn't stay up anymore so I crashed...until just now. Ugh I hate being on an oddball sleep schedule! My mom made it back safe and sound with the kids right on schedule, she said it was a pretty uneventful day as days go when it comes to traveling. I'm glad.

As for me, I'm glad it's uber quiet today. It's been a while since it's been this nice and quiet for me as usually I go to bed long before D does so I don't get any quiet time like this unless he's at work, then my phone is usually blowing up.

I'm back on track now, completely, with my eating. Although I ate out most of last week, I haven't gained anything, and lost .4 already. Good to know I can pick good for me food while eating out. Stuff that I picked that wasn't so good for me I just ate in moderation, it seemed to work. I think tonight (today?) I'm going to get some of my homework done and then hit the sack again early this morning, get a little nap in and try to get back on my normal sleep schedule.

So until later!



  1. You said: "Good to know I can pick good for me food while eating out."

    That's often my downfall. I try to keep only the right foods at home, but in a restaurant I seem to lose control.

    Best wishes to you.

  2. Oh I wasn't perfect by any stretch of the imagination, however I did try to make better overall choices. Like, at one restraunt I ordered a grilled chicken with sauteed mushrooms and onions, mashed potatoes with a little white gravy on the side and greenbeans instead of fried chicken. I try to remind myself that I do not have any control over how THEY make their food but instead I DO have control over what I order and how much of it I eat. I happened to have ate all of that food, I did put about half the gravy they gave me onto my mashed potatoes, but I made sure to only eat about half of them and I ate all of my greenbeans. I also ate all of the chicken (about 6 or so oz worth I'm guessing).

    I think by making such choices is the only reason I didn't have mass gain while my mom was here.

    I even indulged in chocolate while she was here, there was a new kind of peanut butter cup thingy and my mom bought one and we split it. :)

    It's all in how much activity you're doing in relation to how many calories you're eating. I was also walking miles with her around.
