Thanks to my snoozing yesterday, I couldn't get to sleep at a reasonable time last night. I ended up taking 3mg of Melatonin sometime after midnight. I was pretty groggy this morning, but it wasn't nearly as bad as I expected. Looking forward to teh sleepz tonight.
Hulky had ridiculous gas last night too, so it must be something about the cake. Could just be from the coconut milk I used in it (next time, will try coconut or almond milk from a carton). Well, I do not intend to have more than a piece at a time so that should not happen again. I'm going to try and make a coconut cream-based frosting (second recipe) for it tonight. I think I will plan to not have any treats until I am totally full from other foods, and nothing after 8:30PM. Last night, I nibbled on some leftover chicken & had two sweet potatoes for dinner. I feel like it's been easiest to eat moderate-high carb lately, and I don't feel bad, so I will likely continue! Weight is stable around 125 lbs.
I didn't do as many push-ups yesterday, but I did 12 on the first set (previous max was 10). I think I want to get up to a total of 40 (adding up the amount from each set) as a short-term mini goal. At some point, I want to be able to do 50. And I need to figure out how I can try to start doing real push-ups, as these are all on my knees. I guess I'll start doing counter-top push-ups? Hulky is at 50 push-ups in a single set, and at least 100 for a work-out.
I have a full lunch today of chicken (garlic & oregano), broc, an apple, and a banana. I forgot to put a little almond butter in a mini-tupperware container and slice up the oranges. I am not sure if this food will be enough, but if not, I will just bring more tomorrow!
Friday is pay day and I need to catch up on a few things. We forgot to get a battery this weekend for the car so hopefully we can do that this weekend. I need to ask Hulky to get the tires out of the Mustang trunk so we can pick the best ones. I can take those & the wheels to a garage on the weekend to get them mounted.
-pay electric (haven't received a bill yet for February)
-pay oil (says if I pay by 3/15, I get to subtract a few bucks, does that include the 15th?)
-buy gaskets for Mustang muffler (less than $15 including shipping)
-something else I had to buy/pay but now I can't remember
Every time I talk to Baba about the wedding, she asks about where I'm having it. It doesn't seem like she's forgetting, it seems like she's trying to wrap her head around having the ceremony at her house. My mom suspects that Baba would not be able to handle the stress/excitement of having so many people there, even for just a couple of hours. I need to talk to my dad and my aunt about this response to see what they think. If we don't think Baba can handle it, Hulky doesn't want to do the wedding up there at all. I'm on the fence. I'd still like to do everything up there, close to her house, and not just because it would be cheaper than anything here. I did some quick searching for local venues yesterday and there are a lot more options with packages (including tents, dance floors, seating, and sound systems), but I think the price will go up by quite a bit. I'm waiting for a response from the maritime museum up in town by Baba's, it looks cool and I'm hoping it's not too pricey. Then again, it would be a lot easier to plan things if we didn't have to spend $40+ extra on gas every month or two in order to drive up and see things.
