Fucking Finn decided to wake up at 4:30 in the morning…and then proceed to whine and cry until 6. He didn’t want to eat or drink or go outside. He just wanted to get up and for everyone else to be up with him. Around 6:30 I finally got him to quit being needy and go outside and play with Dean while I made and ate breakfast, and then around 8 am he came back inside and all he wanted to do was cuddle and sleep. Little bastard.
On top of Finn waking everyone up super early, I spent most of the night tossing and turning so that really sucks. I tend to over eat and eat a bunch of junk the day after a not so great night’s sleep. And unfortunately that tends to happen to me a lot. For the most part, if I can fall asleep I’m usually good (although that’s not always true), but falling asleep tends to be really hard for me. Both of my sisters have the same problem and I think my mom does too, so maybe its a genetic thing. Does anyone have any tips on how to make falling asleep easier that doesn’t involve medication? I’ve tried melatonin supplements before but they didn’t really do much for me. Chamomile tea definitely helps me relax, but it’s never really helped me sleep. Same with pretty much every “bed time yoga” video there is on YouTube. It just really sucks that something so necessary and important is so hard to accomplish.
Anyways, I figured a “what I ate Wednesday” post would be a good idea. At the very least it helped me stay accountable and not go completely off the wall with my eating just because I’m tired.
- french toast (2 slices of whole wheat bread, 1 egg, 1/4 cup soy milk, 1/4 cup brown sugar, and some cinnamon, fried in 1 tbs coconut oil)
- black coffee
I figured a little treat was in order for this morning, so I made myself some french toast. All things considered though, french toast really isn’t all that bad. I mean, obviously mine had a good amount of sugar in it, but it had a little bit of protein, whole grains, and healthy fats, so all in all, not a bad way to start the day!
- tri colored rotini with tomato/basil/garlic pasta sauce
I probably should have added some veggies to that, but I didn’t so whatever.
After lunch I walked all 3 dogs then spent 25 minutes on my stationary bike. According to my training scheduled, I was supposed to cross train for an hour but I got super bored around 23 minutes so I quit at 25 haha. Oh well, at least I crossed trained for a little bit. 🙂
- fresh pineapple
- A nature valley oats and honey bar
- protein shake (1 frozen banana, scoop chocolate protein powder, 1 cup vanilla soy milk)
I kinda forgot how good a nice cold protein shake could be on a warm day. Honestly a smoothie would have been better, but aside from frozen bananas I don’t have any smoothie fixing. So I guess that’s just going to have to wait for my next grocery trip.
I suppose all in all that’s not too bad for a day of eating! As usual eating enough vegetables is my biggest downfall. But veggies are just no fun! I’d rather eat fruit or French toast haha. Oh well, at least I didn’t eat a bunch of junk or anything. 😃
