The long and winding road to fitness, day 135

Thanksgiving Decorations

Thank goodness I made it through this day at work.  Crazy, hectic, busy, late truck, lots to do, in a bad mood…yes, me.  I finally realized it was because it was going on noon, I’d been up since around 2 am (couldn’t sleep), and I hadn’t eaten anything.  That always affects my mood.  You’d think I’d be adult enough to realize that and do something to avoid it (oh, like eat breakfast?), but no…I’m trying to get a lot done…quickly…so I don’t want to stop and take the time to eat.  And because of that, my mood gets worse and worse.  Until I finally give in and eat something.  That reminds me, I need to leave a little early in the morning to buy a few things to keep in the freezer at work.  I had planned to go out to Subway for lunch today, just to get out of the store for a while.  But I changed my mind since it was pouring down rain…blah!  So I settled for the only thing I still had in the freezer, a breakfast Lean Pocket…Subway would have been better…

And, to make my already bad mood worse, I found out that our six-day work weeks actually start this coming week instead of the following week like I thought.  So I don’t get the weekend off, I get Saturday off, then have to work Sunday and every weekend until Christmas…yippee!!

Anyhow, did some range of motion exercises this morning and that’s all I did for exercise other than all of the walking and lifting I did at work.  I don’t feel too bad, other than being awfully sleepy.  Seems like my bed time is coming earlier and earlier…but what can I do?  Gotta get me some sleep, please let me sleep tonight…please…

My eating was pretty good, not enough fruits and veggies today, only three servings.  But I’m definitely going to buy produce for some salads for work.  Easy way to up the veggie intake.  But I was under on calories today, so that’s a plus. (Or maybe a minus, at least on the scale)

Do you realize that Thanksgiving is fast approaching?  I actually have to work on Thanksgiving…boo!!  What are you going to do?

  1. I hope you’re in bed, sleeping peacefully, catching up on your rest. That’s probably the best thing you can do for yourself until this season passes–stay rested. Sorry to hear your hours change so soon, surprises like that aren’t much fun. I’m trying NOT to think about how fast Thanksgiving is approaching! We’ll travel to our daughter’s for a day or so and spend the holiday with them. I don’t know why everything has to be open all the time any more. It’s like people don’t have a life outside of work.

    • Oh I know…used to be just the occasional drug store or gas station opened on holidays..now just about everyone has to do it. At least we’re still closed on Christmas!! (For now). It sounds like you’ll have a nice Thanksgiving with your daughter.
