Internal Rhythm

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!

  1. Thanks for adding me to your blogroll! Adding you to mine. I’m glad I’m not the only one that still uses ‘square’ 🙂
    I don’t drink anymore, too old, makes me feel like crap. Only tie one on once in a while at weddings or new years eve…and usually regret it the next day.

    • Thanks for stopping by! I definitely use ‘square’ in my everyday conversations, haha!
      I’ve decided that Fridays will be my drinking day, but that’s only because I go out dancing and the bartender and I go on delicious drink adventures. I just need to remember to drink a lot of water…and work out the next day!
