Well. Today was a struggle.
I could feel the wheels starting to come off, and warning lights started flashing…
Tuesday morning: I hadn’t made my lunch, we were running late, and I started hearing some old self-talk. ‘Oh well, I’ll just have whatever…’
So I made my ‘default’ breakfast – poached eggs on toast with cream cheese & coffee. But minus the avocado, ham and garlic & herb salt that I used to add. The plan changed because I didn’t make the time last night to prep the frozen berries for the meal I had planned.
I hadn’t even planned out my snacks for the day. I hadn’t packed my gym bag. Dinner wasn’t prepped. And we forgot to send Miss E’s dinner to daycare (so she’ll just have it later when we get home. But It makes the evening routine smoother if she’s had dinner at daycare).
What this has shown me is that I need to be MORE organised each week, and be more CONSISTENT (not my strong point). Each day needs to be planned well in advance, including snacks and enough time for meal prep (if required). And this needs to be a PRIORITY!!
Miss E was unsettled overnight, and we were both up when she woke at 4:45am. We brought her into our bed, but no-one got back to sleep 😦
Today I decided to focus on getting to bed early, rather than doing my workout (excuse alert!). I had thought I could still do a walk/run on the tready. But even that didn’t happen. I think getting adequate sleep is just as important as training hard, and if I keep pushing myself while I’m sleep deprived, something is going to snap. But in the end I didn’t actually get into bed any earlier *sigh*
I had a sneaky weigh-in this morning and I’m 200g up. But I choose to ignore that and just keep going. I won’t let it get me down because I know that weight fluctuates (and I shouldn’t really be doing extra weigh-ins anyway).

Poached eggs on toast
Subway. It’s a 6 inch Roast Beef sub on multi-grain with Swiss cheese & honey mustard sauce.
Pasta & meatballs. I really like this one! I smash up the meatballs and it becomes like a bolognaise. (Except it isn’t smothered in grated cheese like I used to have).
Tomorrow – Wednesday. I have work, and then 5:30pm Pump class. Then it is State of Origin Game 3. The decider!! I wish I could find my SOO bunting and balloons (they are here somewhere – I put them somewhere ‘safe’! lol). I thought about making more SOO cupcakes, but I just don’t have the time. These are the ones I made for Game 1!!
