I weighed 171.8 this morning! That was a huge drop from last week (175.2). I didn't feel as if I'd done well enough on either food (a little too much) or exercise (not quite enough) to see a drop like that. So I'm sort of waiting to see what the scale says the rest of this weekend and then next week to see how much I really believe those numbers.
I do usually have big drops after a lull, but I was fairly sure that the recent plateau was 100% accurate given the cheating I'd done lately. So this was completely unexpected.
I just couldn't get to sleep last night. I don't know what the deal was. I just couldn't stop thinking about everything I have to do for the Air Force if I want a chance at being promoted on the next board. I'm not the insomnia type, so this was really annoying. Then I started to get anxious since I knew that I'd be incredibly tired today if I didn't get to sleep since Steve has his reserve weekend this weekend and wouldn't be around. So that pressure to fall asleep quickly didn't help. Steve wound up going in late (which helped) but I still woke up at 7 am (after just 2.5 hours of sleep!) so I sent him to work.
We're still going to go to the Wild Animal Park. I find the kids to be very cooperative while we're there, so it's actually a good place to go if I want to minimize conflict and aggrevation while I'm exhausted. And there's no way I'll be exercising tonight (it'll be an early bedtime for me) so the walking all over the park and pushing the double stroller will be my exercise for the day.
