Molding, eats and mental tape
It's almost Friday! We should just rename Thursday to Almost Friday. All in favor say "aye."
Yesterday was a good day for some progress on the home project front. I got my molding for our pass thru to the kitchen painted, distressed and waxed. So it just needs to have some D rings attached to the back to be hung. But first I need to take down the current bamboo blind over it, fill the holes and try to get it to not look horrid. I'm really dreading that part because I don't want there to be some wonky patch job that I can't smooth out. Fingers crossed!
Yesterday was full of yummy eats. I forgot to get a pic of breakfast but it was basically like below:
I had the crustless quiche, low sodium cottage cheese, a small nana with 1 tbsp of peanut butter, green tea and a clementine.
Tuna fish lettuce wraps, cantaloupe with grapes, veggies with 1 tbsp dip and an apple with 2 tbsp PB2 for dippin'. I wish tuna wraps held me longer. I was ready to eat my hand by workout time.
We did Fitness Blender's Day 2 of some challenge they're doing this week. I was kind of irritated I burned less than my required 400 calories but I was sticking with my 10 lb cap with the free weights to see how much my lame arm could take. So far, so good. I may actually be able to try 10's and 15's tomorrow. But I'll take 375 calories if I have to in order to keep my injury on track to healing.
Dinner was orange roughy over homemade coconut milk lime brown rice and a side of Brussels.
I haven't been sleeping well lately. The other night, I finally got to sleep about 2:15am and at 4am it sounded like Mother Nature was bombing the place. I hate Earth shattering, wall shaking, knick knacks about to fall off shelves kind of stuff. I need to stop watching TV in bed. I tape the Tonight Show so there's no reason for me to watch it in bed. Then I turn off the TV and listen to the tape in my head
"You really need to go to sleep. *insert list of 50 things that are random, stupid and keeping me awake* You need to learn to relax. Look at the Mr, he's been asleep since 4.25 seconds of rolling over. Rat bastard. Maybe I can warm my toes on the back of his knees and bring up my body temp to get in sleep mode. Oh, did I wake you? Good. I mean...oops. Let me flip on my other side. My arm is going numb laying that way. Why did we buy this mattress? I'm not much more comfortable than I was before. *Find myself almost drifting to sleep when I hear a loud shift* Why does the house settle like that? Is the house going to get swallowed by a sinkhole? I wonder what I would land on if I fell through to the kitchen? I would scrape my hip on a French door fridge all the way down. That would hurt. Is that a 8" spider lowering on to my face!??! *swat-swat-swat* Nope, just my lucid state of mind that let's my vision play tricks on me. Thanks a lot whatever ancestor passed that down. My leg itches. *scratch-scratch* Oh damn, I'm like a Sasquatch. When was the last time I shaved my legs? If you can't remember, it's probably been too long. The Mr will mistake me for a man if he feels this. I'll have to sharpen the blades on the John Deere. What's that noise? Ice maker? Hot water heater? Chupacabra? I wonder if...." Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
Do you have a problem getting to sleep? If so, do you play your own tape in your head that keeps you awake?
