I spent half the day thinking it was Wednesday, going so far as to tell Mike to enjoy the event that I know he is going to tomorrow, and of course, it still is *tomorrow* and not today as I had thought. I went to the Post Office on my way home from work this morning and then at 11 am had to go to an acting event that I figured would be an hour and a half at the most. Once I arrived I was told it was THREE hours long. Okay, fine, I want to be here, and I'll sleep really well once I get home, and I can still get 8+ hours of sleep.
It was a GREAT event, and was very informative, so I'm glad I stayed. Then I zipped home, changed into my PJs, pulled the blinds, turned off the phone, turned down the answering machine, and was out cold in a matter of seconds. I slept soundly until about 9pm, when I woke up and turned off the Air conditioner - it was 90 degrees here today, and the AC also helps block out some of the noise outdoors. I went straight back to sleep, and didn't want to get up when my alarm went off at 11.
I still feel run down, and tomorrow won't help. I'm going back to the chiropractor's in the morning, and then I have to babysit from 2-7 or so, and then I will sleep from 7:15 until 11 or so. I should also be able to sleep a few hours between the chiropractors and going to babysit, and hopefully this child will take a REALLY good nap, and I can sleep then, too. I'm taking my vitamins, and I'll be resting quite a bit this weekend, so I should be fine again in a few days. I just have to be really conscious of how much sleep I'm getting and not to overextend myself with activities. It's a tough balancing act, though, because said activities will help me get OUT of this job, but I also have to be coherent and competent FOR this job. Yuck.
I haven't thought much about food the last couple of days - ate a salad last night at work, a smoothie this morning, a chicken/turkey pesto sausage before my class, and a glass of mango juice before I went to sleep. So all good stuff, but it doesn't look like much food when I see it on the screen! I haven't been to the gym in about 2 weeks, but I am still doing Pilates and yoga every other day or so. Sleep is a higher priority right now! My abs are still improving, though, which is really cool - there is a little more definition there than there was a few weeks ago! Now if I can just get myself to the gym and on the elliptical machine! Perhaps this weekend.
