Er, hi….

Fridays post, as far as I got:

Nope,  didn't get my good night's sleep last night. .. I woke up at 3:30 again.  I tried to train on getting up, but after 10 minutes I felt like I couldn't carry on,  so... I didn't.  Mum has suggested I ask my doctor for a prescription for sleeping pills but I'm weirdly reluctant and can't work out why.

That was followed by a bout of depression and even less sleep Friday night & again Saturday night :-(
I didn't manage any formal training over the week

end as I was barely conscious but I did walk a fair bit (7 miles Saturday,  approximately 5 yesterday) mainly because I didn't feel up to driving for my big weekly shop so I got the essentials by walking with my rucksack multiple times. I also ate an entire bag of Tesco triple chocolate chip shortbread on Saturday for comfort & an all too temporary energy boost. I did better food-wise yesterday though,  and felt better today thanks to managing a bit more sleep last night. It wasn't enough to give me the energy to train before work this morning, and though I planned to make up for it after work I got caught up with chores and didn't manage it. Hopefully I'll get another half decent night tonight and feel up to it in the morning.

Food today:
Breakfast: eggs scrambled with bacon, lamb's kidney & tomatoes
Lunch: homemade soup
Dinner: chicken stir fry
Snacks: Greek yogurt, cashews.
