Day One Hundred Fifty-Six

July 27th, 2016 at 05:29 am

Calories: 1757

I almost came in very low yesterday, but late in the evening I ate some trail mix. I was up late, unable to sleep, and it had been a long time since I had eaten.

My leg pain and restlessness was very bad last night. I don't know why. I was very tired, and that seems to set it off. But how do you avoid getting tired? All I wanted to do was sleep, and there was no way I could do it. I woke up feeling fine.

The windows are finished and the AC is installed. What a luxury it will be to just turn the units on when I get warm!

Yesterday was the first day I skipped the gym. I had to babysit my grandson for half of the day, and between that, finishing up with the window washers, and having my son install the AC, there was never a good time to slip away. It's not bad to skip a day every once in a while, I'm just taking note that it's the first time, and I've been really good about taking advantage of my membership so far.

I haven't paid for the window washing yet (have to wait for the office to open so I can phone in my credit card information). So the payment is officially in the August budget, which starts today! I will try to cash-flow it. It is definitely a want, not a need, and I don't want to tap savings for it. But that will mean being careful this coming month.

I haven't done my July reckoning yet, but it appears that my variables spending ended at 86%, and my total spending topped $3,000. I'll get to it later today and post tomorrow.

    Are you taking a multivitamin? The iron in it might help with you being very tired and I remember seeing someone comment on iron and leg pain. I am thrilled that your ac in now installed. YAY! You are doing so well with tracking your calories. I can't believe its already day 156.

    Well, I'm post-menopausal and I've been told not to take iron supplements. However, it looks like increasing iron in my diet might be helpful, so I'll look into that.

    You are doing great on counting your calories. Sorry about your leg restlessness. Yay on the a/c!

    DH asked me last night if I ever sleep (he came home around 11:30 - early night off work.) I told him - of course - 3 1/2 hours some nights, five most - six on a really good night. (I'm usually awake on the nights he gets home around 3:30 or 4 a.m. too ...) Hoping the iron supplements I'm taking will help with sleep, restlessness, etc.

    I hope you find a way to get some more sleep too!
