...to hold my eyes open! I have no idea why, but I have been so freaking exhausted lately! Well, I know why... Caffeine detoxing (not to go completely off of it, but to cut back), not getting enough sleep, stress at work, etc..
Last night, my work had a happy hour to say goodbye to one of our longtime employees who just quit.. she was actually the person that hired me! I was a good girl and had 1/5 of a Bloody Mary (I would have had more but it was so freakin strong!) and a few quesadilla pieces... I looked it all up on my WW etools and "charged" myself 8 points... well within my point allowance for the day. Prior to gastric bypass surgery, I would have had several drinks, but that 1/5 of a drink got me a little loopy.. ha! I only stayed an hour because I didn't want to overeat or overdrink and I had an hour long drive ahead of me... I fully intended to go home and take the dogs out and then head to the gym, but instead I just changed and went to bed. I just didn't feel good, and I couldn't explain what was wrong with me besides having a slightly sore throat and being 100% exhausted. John was a little worried about me because in the whole time we've lived together, I have NEVER gone straight to bed, even when I'm sick. Well, I still had trouble waking up this morning. I did make it to work for 7 am, but it was tough!!
Wow, this post has absolutely no rhyme or reason.. ha!
Anyway - today is my weigh in day at WW. I am a little worried, but if you've been reading me long, you would probably use neurotic as one of the words to describe me. I did go over my points on the weekend, but I did not go over my weekly allotment so I SHOULD be in decent shape.. Hopefully the scale gods will be on my side this evening... I'll give you an update tomorrow!!
