Midweek (my Thursday 🙂 ) Snack last night did not seem to help me get or stay asleep. I actually was tired when I went to bed a little early and thought I would fall asleep easily, but then my eyes popped open and I was pretty restless. Got up early to hit the gym. Happy lady in the locker room ready to lift!
Today was workout B for January:
- Chin ups: 2 sets of 2
- Barbell split squats: 3 sets of 8 at 65 pounds
- Underhand grip lat pull down: 3 sets of 8 at 60 pounds
- Step ups: 3 sets of 8 with 30 pound dumbbells (each)
- Bent over reverse fly: 3 sets of 8 with 10 pound DB
- Incline dumbbell chest fly: 3 sets of 8 with 25# DBs
Then 40 minutes of walking. I think I need to try a barbell for the step ups, because I just can’t hold the 30# dumbbells. My grip gets tired and so do my forearms.
John and I then went for the requisite bagel! I was different today and got cinnamon raisin with plain cream cheese.
I could tell today was going to be a tough food day after I got back. It’s the tired/not enough sleep thing. I decided to protein up for lunch to try to head it off – so I had protein waffles with added protein powder:
Amazing how this same recipe makes 3 smallish pancakes, yet poofs up in the waffle iron to this giant monster! The extra protein didn’t help.
Then I proceeded to snack in the afternoon on:
- Balance bar
- 1 christmas cookie (nutmeg log)
- 2 ramekins of chocolate chip/peanut mixture
- 1 serving of FSTG chips
Don’t you love it? 😳 I’ll be honest, it’s stress and tiredness. The house thing is moving along. I talked with my tenant last night to let him know of the plans. My rental house will be on the market at the end of the week (YAY!!). However, with only 1/2 the money coming in for it due to one tenant leaving, it’s going to be tough money-wise until it sells, so that makes me eat. Okay, that doesn’t *make* me eat, I just do…. I just wish I knew how long it would take. That’s the control freak in me. I can’t control how many buyers there are out there or make someone buy it. I can only send out as many positive vibes as I can 😀 How long can one cross fingers and toes before they get stuck that way?
John’s football dinner was tonight. Last regular season dinner. So much for my crazy picks in the hopes I could win! 😀
He chose Arthurs:
It was so warm and cozy in here. Much warmer than we keep our house set at (66). I had a salad:
and split a calzone with John.
I love the small pizza joints around here. So good. That’s feta cheese in there, btw.
Needless to say I am full right now. I’ll probably wake up with a food hangover tomorrow. Is there a cure for that??
Question: Do you have any insomnia tips?
