Time for fun and time for normalcy

I knew this weekend was going to be busy!  Friday night out with friends for dinner, Saturday to the zoo, Sunday, hike and Monday, two walks and a hair cut.

Sunday-Went to bed at  10 p.m. last night and Rory was up at 6, but came back to bed for awhile, but making noises which kept me awake.  I really wish I could sleep by myself.
Weight is going up, but still in goal range.
Breakfast-yogurt with blueberries, toast with almond butter and tea.
Snack-trail mix
Lunch-Veggie burger
Snack-Trail mix
Dinner-Ribs, potato salad, frozen yogurt
Hike-5+ miles
Feelings-tired, but a nap will solve that problem. Looking forward to walking with friends. Frustrations that I cannot talk about.  Tired and going to bed early!
Light out at 9:40

Monday-Got up about 6:15.  Feeling slightly down.
Weight is down.  Eating at home helps a lot!
Breakfast-Eggs with spinach, bacon, salsa and cheese, ezekiel bread with almond butter
Snack-Trail mix
Lunch-Chicken Cobb salad
Snack-Trail mix
Dinner-Chicken Pad Thai with frozen yogurt
Hike-4 miles
Feelings-Feel down, but talking to others helps.  Being truthful helps! Not saying you are fine, when you are not!  Happy that I accomplished everything I wanted to, today.
Turned off light around 10:30.

Tuesday-Back to getting up at 5:30.  Taking Mari to the train station, really makes me feel like I have a purpose and a reason for getting up early.
Weight is within range
Breakfast-Eggs with brussel sprouts and green onions, salsa, cheese, Ezekiel Bread, almond butter, turkey bacon and tea.
Snack-trail mix
Lunch-half turkey burger
Snack-trail mix
Dinner-Curry shrimp with rice and vegetables, Mocha freeze
Hike-4 miles
Feelings-feeling motivated. How do you live with someone who constantly frustrates you? I want to live in a peaceful house and I cause part of the issue.  How do I get balance between being social and getting to bed on time.
Turned off light around 11:45-Too late

Wednesday-Up at 5:30.  Didn't sleep well, but was up before the alarm.  Definitely need to take a nap
Weight at the low end of the range
Breakfast-Oatmeal, turkey bacon, tea
Snack-Trail mix
Lunch-Half tuna burger

Dinner-Salmon TV dinner with frozen yogurt
Feelings-it feels good to get things accomplished early.  Feeling tired-going to take a nap.  Tired of being tired.  Had a surprise phone call today from Petsmart.  I have a job interview on Friday.  My first reaction was nerves.  I have not been through an interview in many years.  Thankful to Patty from my small group, that I feel more confident.

Thursday-Up a little before the alarm would have gone off at 5:30.
Weight stayed the same and still within range
Breakfast-Cereal with blueberries, a banana, turkey bacon and tea
Snack-trail mix
Snack-trail mix
Dinner-Chicken with zucchini and other vegetables and rice, frozen yogurt
Feelings-Feeling depressed on the way to hike, felt happier after the walk, talked to a friend and decided to start cooking dinner as part of my morning routine, which helped later in the day. Accomplished what was on my to do list.

Feelings-good start to a Friday-several positive things happened, tired, I like cooking dinner earlier in the day, so I don't have to rush to make dinner and go pick up Mari or go to a hike.  Had an interview that went very well.  Had some sadness regarding Sweet Pea from a sympathy card
