Tired Tuesday

Hello friends!! Was that totally mean of me yesterday or what? Well I won’t keep you in the dark any longer!!

Remember last week when I was honest with my weight and that Tuesday’s are my WI day, well I weighed in this morning and the scale said 168 which means a 4.5lb loss! I’ll take it!

Monday night I didn’t sleep well at all (maybe an hour or 2)! I ended up taking a 1/2 day off work to catch up on sleep. Kyle was kind enough to make me breakfast when I got up for my day at 11am! He made me ff pancakes with bananas for 6 points!DSC07255

I got to work mid-day and didn’t slow down until I left at 7pm! I did take a little time to have some yogurt with homemade granola for 2 points. DSC07256

And I can’t forget my super sweet husband brought me and my staff in my office some lemon ice cream from the Dariette! I think we all appreciated it! I was so excited though and didn’t get a picture. (8 points…it was a big serving)

I think Kyle is on a role today because he also made me supper! I had this delicious looking plate ready for me when I walked in the door! It consisted of ff hot dog, a cheeseburger on a sandwich thin, strawberries, & grapes for a total of 10 points. DSC07257

I haven’t ran since Sunday, but I can’t let it get to me. I need to take care of me. If I am exhausted from little sleep and stressful days at work I think it’s ok to rest from work outs, as long as its just a day or 2.

What’s your take on rest days?


POINTS = 26/23

I have also been short on sleep lately. Not very motivating to get back to el gymnacio.

But good for you for sticking to the eats! Congrats on the 4 lbs!

Sam said...

Awesome job on the weight loss girl!! That had to of put a smile on your face :)

So I have a question - what kind of mix do you use to make your pancakes? They look yummy - it is homemade or do you buy a pre-packaged mix?

Cupcake Dreamer said...

Love the pancakes. :) They look so yummy.

Rest days are definitely a MUST. They are the only way to make it through stressful weeks.

Don't dwell on the past, just keep moving. :)

I think you're wise to take rest days when you're worn down. Your body is crying for it, it's not a matter of just being lazy.

SUPER CONGRATS on your loss this week. I gained almost that much - hahha. But, I posted about it ... partly because of you I'll have you know. I knew it was your WI day too and if I didn't post it would have felt like a cop out.

Your hubby is so sweet. You are lucky to have each other.

I love it when hubby makes dinner! :) I say rest up and take care of yourself. Don't put too much on your plate with work, etc though or you'll get burnt out fast!

Krista said...

I have a hard time taking rest days but I do know the importance of them. It can be a slippery slope for me as my activity is what keeps my eating in check, so if I have no activity I'm always tempted to divert from my healthy eating (how ass backwards is that?)

As long as you are listening to your body you will be fine. Take a rest when you need it! Your body will thank you!

Wicked loss this week girl!
