I need to stop drinking during the week; it absolutely throws off my internal rhythm. I get to work the next morning completely lost, dehydrated, and exhausted with no idea what I’m doing. Well, the no idea thing happens a lot, but it’s extra bad mornings after I drink. And I’m not talking binge drinking here, I’m just talking about two drinks…maybe 2.5.
I went out for drinks on Tuesday and Thursday, which was just a bad idea. Next week, no drinking during the week…whether I go to rugby or not.
I’ve been so exhausted that I haven’t swam at all this week because I just can’t get out of bed. It’s been pretty bad. Next week we’re focusing on swimming and sleep and good planning.
For my own purposes, this is a rough schedule of how I see my weekend going
Friday: hiking, picking up a friend, shower (not with friend, hiking will put me closer to her house so she’ll just have to deal with me sweaty for a bit), salsa party, sushi happy hour (two for one!), salsa club (and designing delicious drinks), and maybe salsa after party
Saturday: swimming (7:30-9), bike around, plan week (laundry, cooking, Bike & Walk to Work Day, etc.), salsa party
Sunday: maybe bike ride, maybe watch some rugby matches, salsa club
As a side note, I went out to lunch today. I brought my lunch yesterday and went out yesterday too, so I just figured I would eat yesterday’s lunch today. That didn’t happen, but I’ll have it tomorrow…really. More importantly, I ordered a pesto breaded chicken sandwich and I got an option for a side. I chose steamed veggies! I’m so happy I didn’t get fried or mac & cheese, even though they both sounded really good. Woohoo for small victories!
