Forward planning

Wednesday, April 13, 2011

Today started off badly (arguments with a 4 year old about which shoes she should wear to daycare) but has gotten better.

I’ve been quite productive at work, although have hit a temporary brick wall in my thought processes... I should smash through it tomorrow though. I also got up again at 5.30am and did another 10 minute workout, this is almost mindless now – I don’t even question whether I should get up when the alarm goes off. I was awake for some time before my alarm went off and have found myself waking very early for a few days. I’m not sure why and it’s very annoying. I hate lying in bed, knowing that it’s super early and I have to get up within the hour... as I never get back to sleep – or if I do I feel terrible when the alarm goes off.

I’m wearing a new work blouse that looked worse on a month ago (so bad I wouldn’t wear it) and it’s a bit looser around the middle but I wore it without washing it first and have been itchy all day. That was a silly mistake and I won’t do that again – and I realised that it’s a shirt that will need ironing – d’oh! Another mistake! I prefer the type that are sheer and work with a vest underneath and that don’t need ironing!

Tonight we are picking up our new sofas after work! Then I think I’ll cook a curry using a jar of sauce, some lean chicken and mushrooms. And for desert, what else but a Skinny Cow Chocolate Truffle bar... They are so delicious. I think they are almost better than an entire bar of Lindt Dark Chocolate with orange and almond.... almost maybe... maybe even better...

I’m thinking of our holiday that is in less than two weeks. We are going on a Disney cruise – and I’m thinking – is it too much to ask the waiter to bring me half serves of meals? I thought it would be better to just not have it all on my plate than try to leave half... Would they do that for me in the kitchen?

    I have gotten to the point where I miss working out if I don't do it =) that's a good feeling

    I think asking for half servings of your meals is a great idea. If they won't do it that way, you could ask for a to-go box and divide it up before you start eating. Then you can have something for later emoticon

    The exercise is so great! It's always wonderful when something like that starts feeling like a habit rather than work. :)

    About the cruise, I think that's a great idea. I wish you the best of luck, and I hope you have fun!
