Does anyone else have as much trouble with sleep as I do? Last night was a doozy. I wasn’t actually asleep until about 1 am, but I woke up when my husband came to bed around 3 am. I fell back down pretty quickly after that, but the baby woke me up at 4 am. I took her to the bathroom and tucked her all in, but then I lay in bed for over an hour, somehow exhausted but unable to sleep at the same time. I finally drifted off around 5:30 am…only to have the baby wake me up again at 6. So I lay in bed for another hour or so, unable to sleep again, and the neighbors chose that moment to get up super early and, like, pack their entire home into their vehicles or something… I don’t know what they were doing, but I heard car doors opening and shutting over and over again for almost half an hour.
To make a long story short, I’m a little dozy this morning, so cut me some slack, okay?
Health and Body Image Goal
I swear, I’m trying. I’ve decided that I’m going to do Turbo Jam – at least for a little while – because it kicks my ass but is also pretty fun. Unfortunately I have to admit that I haven’t actually done it since I made that decision. After my back finally healed last week, I decided to officially start the program this Monday…then I promptly woke up feeling as though my sinuses were crammed full of every allergen ever conceived. Then last night happened as explained above, and here I am only getting started with the day around 11 am. It’s possible that I will get around to the program sometime today, but I wouldn’t hold my breath too long.
That said, a piece of advice for anyone trying to lose weight: if you come across a recipe for a drink that helps stave off hunger and reduce fat intake, you may want to skip it. It involves oranges, lemons, and limes, plus cucumber and mint, and it tastes like the bowels of a sewer. I had really expected it would taste like a citrus drink of some kind, but all you can taste is the cucumber and mint, which does not a lovely combination make. You’ve been warned.
As mentioned last week, I planned to start focusing on my zombie apocalypse once I had all my notebooks transcribed. That’s still the plan, and though I got slowed down some this week, I’m almost to that point now. I have three or four scenes left to transcribe out of the last notebook, and I should be able to finish that today if I put a bit of a drive on. Go me!
1,000,000 Word Goal
This week was a bit of a disappointment compared to previous weeks, but a lot of the reason is because I took a trip down home for a “Girl’s Night” party for my mother’s birthday, so there’s no regrets. Even taking that into consideration, I put a bit of a drive on yesterday evening and managed to bring my weekly total up to 15042 words. Nothing to sneeze at.
Now that I have all that out of the way, it’s nearly noon so I really feel I ought to get some work done. Wish me luck!
