Until the phone rang and woke me up, I got another five hours of sleep yesterday after work. Was wide awake, so got up and worked out a while. Did a mile on the treadmill and then did about 30 minutes of power yoga. Took a two hour nap in the evening, too, but tossed and turned for a while.
Got up again at 10 pm, dressed, and went to SBUX for a soy chai tea latte – there’s one that closes at midnight down the street from me, which will come in handy when I have to be at work at midnight. I don’t want to get in the habit of going there before work, but it’s nice to know it is available if I feel like I need an extra boost to get through the day.
Food-wise, other than tonight’s chai, I’ve been doing REALLY well. Lamb, salads, sausages, asparagus, and basically no sugar for days. I’m really pushing the protein and veggies and fruit because I think I need the extra nutritional support since I’m working nights. Been taking lots of B vitamins, too.
Went for a 5-7 minute walk around the parking lot at lunch (at 5am) and it helped me stay more alert this morning. I've been kind of hungry all night, too, in spite of having eaten something every two hours and drinking tons of water. I'll make some eggs when I get home.
