I slept like a log. I never even heard Orlando come to bed. I tried so hard to get up at 4, but my body wasn’t ready yet so I slept until 5:30 and woke feeling refreshed.
7:45 Pink lady apple on the way to bring Carlos to school.
8:30 a small handful of grapes
9 coffee and almond milk
All bedding washed and dried already. I am hoping the bedmaking fairy will come over while I’m out to make the beds.
10-12:15 two home visits with patients
12:40 a carrot and hummus; spinach salad with a sweet potato, sauerkraut (addicted!) and lemon juice
Afternoon treat and a break from the absolute insane nonsense that is my job right now.
Super busy afternoon. Too many unplanned work issues made it difficult to get any of my patient visit paperwork done. Before I knew it, it was time to make the beds (damn fairy never came) and dinner. I managed to make dinner without nibbling on anything.
8:30 I just finished interviewing babysitter #3. She was lovely. She’s working on her teaching certification and is currently in a special Ed classroom. She’s also a girls high school track coach.
I am ready for dinner after a successful afternoon of no picking and grazing. I wore a cute new summer dress all day which made me more inspired than ever to stay away from snacks and eat food that makes me feel good.
Dinner: Broccoli slaw, mushrooms, peas and edamame sautéed and a side of zucchini noodles with tomato sauce.
Work was ridiculous today. I have a mountain of it awaiting me now, but I haven’t done any exercise so maybe a walk or short run first before getting back to it. We’ll see.
10:45 What a gorgeous cool night. No run, I walked around the neighborhood near my house while catching up with my mom. I got a few more things done for work while loosely watching an episode of the West Wing. No PM snacks!! I’m going to bed because I am meeting a friend for a 5:15 run.
