Have you ever noticed how hard it is to make the right choices when you’re tired? I certainly have, and today is no different. I’ve been staying up later the past couple of weeks, just because I feel like it.
The past few nights I’ve been working in our living room so I will hopefully be ready to paint this weekend. It’s been fun! I want to get the project done and not put another thing on Marcus’s list of things to do, so I told him I will do it myself. Well, it took me 2 nights to take down our vertical blinds because I wasn’t quite sure what to do. I finally had to ask for his advice, and he introduced me to a socket wrench. Wow, that worked great! lol Tonight I need to patch some small holes, and hopefully I can start to paint this weekend.
Usually when I’m tired, I say “screw it” and eat whatever I want. It seems to take too much energy to chop fixings for a salad and easier to throw a pizza in the oven. Well, luckily I have a plan for today. I didn’t make my lunch last night (which is dangerous), so I forced myself to clean lettuce this morning. Mornings are always rushed, but I did it. Luckily I still had some tomato cut and ready to go. I keep oatmeal at work for breakfast, and for lunch I have my salad and a yogurt, plus a banana for a snack. Supper will be leftover tacos (taco salad for me) and that’s ready to go…except I need to chop tomatoes since I took the rest for lunch. Should be quick and easy, and since I have a plan, it will be easier to stay on track today.
It could be another late (and by late, I mean 10:30 or so) night, so I hope the kids sleep in a little bit tomorrow. Even 7am would be great!
I am putting the last day and a half behind me. Today will be one of healthier choices, despite my sleepiness. Lots of water and healthy, nourishing food!
