Day 321

Tuesday, November 17, 2015

Up early again, yay! I think the alarm on my Fitbit really helps to wake me up! Now coffee and then to work out!

emoticon I'm doing 100 steps on the riser per leg (with that leg being the lead foot). I feel like I should be doing more, but honestly if I was I wouldn't be able to stay awake all day. I'm trying hard to get at least 6k steps in each day with a goal of 7k (ultimate goal 10k). It should not be as hard as it is. I get 3k steps from working out in the morning! But, sedentary me has a hard time with it. Once upon a time, active me used to get more than 10k on a daily basis. *sigh* I'll get there!!

emoticon I should have gotten about 7.5 hours of sleep last night. Instead, with how many times I woke up I got 5.5 hrs of sleep. I think seeing it makes it worse, ya know? Knowing that I didn't get that much sleep makes me more tired.

Love that saying. Maybe it is that I know that I'm not sleeping as much. I've been sleeping like this long before I had a fitbit to tell me how many times I was restless or awake, and I did just fine. I'm going to see a sleep specialist, so the problem will be fixed. I just need to quit freaking out about it and keep going like I was before I found out about how little real sleep I'm getting.

emoticon Must have my shake in the mornings! I didn't 'feel' like one yesterday, so by 0930 I was starving and raided the fridge. Of all things I had cheese, which is loaded with calories! So this morning, whether I want it or not, I will have my shake.

emoticon I did really good at lunch, yellow squash noodles, edamame, baby bell peppers, carrots, all lightly stir fried with just enough sauce to make it tasty, not calorie ridden. I could not eat it all, but it was yummy! Got me thinking, why am I cutting my squash into noodles? Not for the flavor, but for the texture and it actually detracted from yesterday's stir fry bowl (no rice, just veggies). So I'm hanging up my spiralizer for now. Am I regretting buying it? No way! It got me to see veggies in a new light and think about different ways to combine them and cook them. I love it! But for now, I'm hanging it up. I'll get it out when I need to be 'inspiralized' again, lol.

emoticon I got a little carried away Christmas shopping, so now I am broke. It's not the main account, just the money set aside for me. Can't do that again, don't need to run out of money again, for just in cases. But I got some great gifts! Got a gastronomy kit for DH, should be fun for him to try things out! Got something for FIL and BIL and I got a ton of yarn to make gifts for my friend's kids and my SIL and MIL. I'm going to make this

found it on Pinterest and fell in love with it, but it cost $55!!! So I spent $50 on yarn and am going to make about 7 of them. 2 for my kids, 2 for family and 3 for friend's kids. It has certainly kept me busy! I got the scarf parts done, now to get the clouds done! The buttons for the eyes should be here in December, so I'll finish them right on time!

    Cute scarf. We have been eating a lot of squash since it is on sale. We just bake it with cinnamon, salt, and a couple sprays of olive oil. Good luck.

    The scarf is cute. I know that your family/friends will enjoy receiving the ones that you make. Get that sleep study done. Mine showed that I needed a CPAP at night due to severe sleep apnea. If your doctor says the same to you, don't hesitate using one. They really help.
