Girls Night Out !

Posted by Susan on March 25, 2009

Last night was my long awaited night out with my friends. It was so much fun catching up and hanging out, especially since I am on vacation and did not have to worry about getting home and getting to bed. I was excellent at the restraunt. I has a salad with salmon, low fat dressing on the side. I didn’t eat the appetizer, and I didn’t indulge in a cocktail. It felt great not to walk out of the place feeling bloated and like my pants are about to pop !

I got home at a decent hour, took a shower and watched some TV, read for a bit and then went to bed. Well, that is when the trouble began. My husband went to bed before me, and he was asleep when I got there…….and he was intermittently snoring like a chain saw !!!!! Every so often he has a this unexplained snoring problem. Last night it was awful. I was not able to shut off my brain as it was, and the snoring made me crazy. Every now and then I struggle with sleep problem, but for the most part I sleep well, but last night was one of those nights where thoughts played over and over in my head like a movie I can’t turn off. I went into the spare bedroom to sleep……………no go ! I was frustrated and angry. I got up and I went into the kitchen stood at the sink and proceeded to stuff 100 calorie bites sized pieces of cake into my mouth. I was literally in a daze stuffing cake into my mouth !!!!!! It was nuts !!!!!! Afterward that I went back to my bed….Matt (husband) had quieted down and fell asleep around 3 am. I can not believe how I reacted to the stress and frustration of not being able to sleep !!!! It kills me because I was so good all day, I felt like I looked better than ever going out, and I completely sabotaged it all!

When I woke up this morning I literally got up and thought I would throw up. I had to lay down on the bathroom floor until it passed. About 30 min. later I felt better and was able to do my workout, but the start of it was very painful…..I did NOT feel like doing it…..but I did it anyway. I need to isolate this little episode and move on………..the mindless binge was bad, but I need to let it go. I am writting about it as a way to purge it so I can forget it……so it is now forgotten !

This morning I am showing a friend how to do circuits and HIIT. She has never really worked out, and I am hoping she enjoys it. I am also hoping she doesn’t frustrate me with too much complaining. She is one of the people who asks me what I do, and the minute I mention calorie counting and workouts her eyes glaze over and she automatically says ” Oh I could never do that…..” I will do my best to inspire her and show her some good body weight moves, and hope it sinks in…..we’ll see.

So I am on to a new day, hoping for a better day…….and night , than last. I am hoping to fit in some extra cardio today to make up for certain sins that I have completely forgotten about !!! 😉

UPDATE : I helped my friend today, went over a little program I made up for her, taught her how to HIIT in the treadmill. She did really great ! Will she do it consistantly? We shall see…….I know she really wants it, the question is does she want it bad enough to do the work? That reamins to be seen.
