While I'm Waiting - John Waller

5 GRATITUDES (Thank you, Heavenly Papa!):
  • Thank you God today is over.
  • Thank you God for my interview.
  • Thank you God for getting me through today on hardly any sleep.
  • Thank you God I got my workout done.
  • Thank you God Your Victory was won for all of us over eternal death.
  • I was really challenged throughout the day with so little sleep and disjointed sleep at that.  Continuous good and enough sleep is important.  I know I need enough sleep every night because of the stresses I encounter every day, whether it is through my work, workouts, husband, kids, other people, cars, other stuff.  Sleep is when my body is able to recover and being woken up with a startling thing and not being able to sleep for hours did really impact my day.
  • Very grateful for my husband's encouragement.  He is typically not one for encouraging verbally in the manner he did yesterday.  He saw I was out of sorts and really encouraged me as we drove to my interview, ironed my dress and helped me.
  • Really glad my husband is feeling more comfortable with doing some things or is willing to do some things sort of on his own, like getting dinner for us so I could try to catch up on work.
  • My body is feeling a little sore from yesterday's workout.
  • Eating pretty much stunk the past 2 days, especially today.  I really prefer our/my cooking instead to eating out, but eating out is convenient when you don't have time to cook or haven't prepared or organized.  
  • Time to tighten down some of the amounts I have been eating.  I think my body has been adjusting to the workouts and I can begin to start tapering back.  I already started doing that by making smaller portions with my smoothies.  I don't want to gain weight while doing these challenging workouts, though, today my only challenge was to have the energy to get through the workouts.
  • We had so much mail in our mailbox as we haven't picked up mail in about a month.  I'm guessing the postmaster doesn't like that.
    • Probiotic & 2x krill oil - before breakfast
    • 3 tpsns Braggs raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar in 8 oz water - before breakfast
    • My heart meds, hair supps, Multi-vitamins, cinnamon, Zn, Mg, Ca, selenium supp, Vit E - breakfast

    Notes:  This workout should have been wonderful, but it wasn't.  I woke up feeling very sleep deprived with nausea because ta 2:30 am my husband was coming to bed.  As he got into bed, I heard a door slam, which jolted me out of bed.  I knew that everyone was in bed and why did the garage door slam?  Anyway, I woke with my husband and we checked the whole house.  The front security door was unlocked.  The front door was opened, the garage door was unlocked and the back sliding door was unlocked.  We locked everything and believed that my dad forgot to lock stuff.  My husband usually checks, but didn't that night.  He will make an effort to do this.

    Anyway, after that, I couldn't fall asleep for at least 2 hrs and though I went to bed at a good hour, being woken like this is very jarring.  When I am very sleep deprived, this causes nausea with me and I worked out feeling pukey.  I didn't push or go anywhere as hard as when I'm like normal, but at least I got this workout done, as I was close to finishing this challenge and didn't want to mess up here.
