The 26 hour day

Super, duper, incredibly fast post.

More OT today, however, I am prioritizing and leaving early from said OT to go to group Power. Because it’s important to me. Tomorrow night, I’ll be working till 7 again, and will be in rehearsal 7:30-9. My poor kids won’t know who I am. I’m even coming in on Saturday this week… *sigh*
Stats for today:
Cals 1299 Fat 44 g Cholesterol 68 mg Sodium 3956 mg Carbs 140 g Fiber 30 g Protein 72 g Sugars 65 g

 This is INCLUDING dinner. Pre-planning! I rock!

Eats for today:
B: Ezekiel and PB
S: banana
L: sweet potato, clean “re-fried” beans, salsa
S: 4oz plain chiobani, ½ cup blueberries
D: large green salad, 4 oz chicken breast, good seasons, green olives, red peppers, cukes, tomatoes,
S: apple, 2 tbs natural PB
Lots of tea, some with almond milk, water and seltzer.

Tonight, as I said – Group Power. I am totally at ease with sacrificing 2 hours of OT to go to class.

I felt like such a lug not going to my spin class last night. But I left here at 7, went to a meeting and wasn’t home until 9:30 – and I hadn’t even eaten dinner at that point. I snacked on nuts at the meeting, but I think I over ate them. I was starving, and I certainly wasn’t measuring. Moving on from this.

It’s freakin’ freezing here – not making it above 20 degrees at the peak of the day. It’s going down into the negatives tonight. Um. Brr.

Hubby has been asked to start OT as well, and it will continue for at least the next year. It means that getting the boys together and out the door in the morning will be all on me. It’s a tough process, especially trying to get into my office by 7:30. It’s a lot of stress.
Anyone wanna take a stab at creating a 26 hour day?? Anyone? Anyone?

I’m taking one day at a time. If I look forward (OT plus classes plus exercise plus meetings/rehearsal plus family = holy shit) it’s too much. I’m, as always, moving forward…


  1. Good God - when you figure out how to make a 26 hour day - let me know - I desperately need an extra 2 hours too!

  2. I'm with you...there is just not enough time! My house is a wreck because of all of our activities...
