Friday's Failures

I am exhausted today. I've pretty much felt this way all week. Let me tell you about my downfalls for the day.

I typically work out during lunch, then I go back after work to get in whatever I didn't do at lunchtime or do do my cardio. I was thrown off today. We had Commander's Call at 10:30, followed by Volleyball and a Cookout. Transgression #1--I ate a burger. well, actually just meat, cheese, and ketchup. I didn't bring my chicken and green beans when I went over to set up and I wasn't going to drive back across base to get it. I was starving and, I had skipped out on a cookout on Monday, so I wanted to "fit in" with everyone else. It's not like I made a bad food choice and had a piece of cake. It's just that it wasn't on my meal plan, so I feel like I cheated. Transgression #2-I didn't make it to the gym at lunch. I didn't exactly get to go to lunch. The commander let all the military go early and I was thinking I would get to cut out early too. No such luck. Well, I did get out at 4:00pm. I *should* have went to the gym, but I needed to get groceries for this weekend (more to come) and I was just too exhausted to workout. I would do it at home. Transgression #3-I took a nap and I am still tired and I didn't workout. Transgression #4-I made my husband white gravy and I ate some while I was cooking it. Tony said if you are off with your eating, that's okay, just make sure you get in ALL of your water. Transgression #5-I didn't drink it all. I only got down about 64 ounces. Typically, I would drink the rest over the next hour and call it a night. But I am seriously wiped out. I am going to bed. I can't drink the water. Oh wait, transgression #6-I ate some pickles. The sodium's going to make me retain water and I'm going to gain weight. UGGGGGG.....

Okay, this weekend. I'm headed to San Angelo. Here's what I need to do in order to leave:
Pack clothes
Get clothes out of Expedition in Shop
Find Stamps
Pack Wii
Pack DVD player
Cook Cabbage, Potatoes, and Sausage so cabbage doesn't ruin
Cook Broccoli
Cook Turkey Burgers
Pack my food
Pack their food
Properly install car seat in car
Remove beer from ice chest to put food in
Chest Workout
Bicep Workout

What have I done? NOTHING. I AM going to get up at 5am to do all of this stuff done by 7am so we can leave. The cardio might happen at the hotel. We'll see. The rest HAS to happen. We're leaving around 7:30 so it's got to be complete. I could do most of it now and stay up a little later and sleep until 6, but I'm just exhausted. I think I said that about 10 times now. Is anyone else feeling like this?

Girl, that's alot to do, let alone THINK about. No wonder you're exhausted! I can SO relate. I've been feeling really tired for the past 3-4 weeks and I don't know why. Stuff just starts catching up to you. We are worried SO much about drinking all the water, eating at the right times, eating the right foods, making sure we take all the supplements and then getting in the exercise and not just GETTING it in, but kickin' it can we NOT be exhausted?? Then ofcourse, there's work and hubbys and kids too! Whew! Just writing all that makes me tired! I think I'm going back to bed now....
