Today is officially Cranky Pants Day (yes I know some people will be celebrating Melbourne Cup but I don't get it - maybe because I am from South Africa and the closest we ever got to a horse race was The July - maybe because I am not a fan of horse racing - whatever it is, I don't get the hype over a horse race where majority of the horses aren't even from Australia !!!).
Today I am cranky.
Yesterday I wasn't.
Yesterday I was motivated to do what needed to be done.
Yesterday I went shopping after work - spent what I could have put as a down payment on a new car on some fruit and veg.
Yesterday I went home and got above veggies chopped up and roasted while A cooked the chicken on the Weber.
Then I made the breakfast muffins that we needed or suffer the consequence of not being prepared for breakfast or lunch this week.
By this stage it was after 8pm and I still hadn't done my #bacnov3030challenge so off A and I set with the dogs. 44 mins later we were back home and I sat down at the table with some papers to catch up on a few things that I wanted to have written down instead of running around my head with the proviso that I was going to be finished by 10 and in bed by 10.30.
Liar, liar pants on fire - I eventually got up from the table at 10.40 still having to shower and get ready for bed so it was closer to 11.15 by the time I got into bed.
At 2am I was still awake - not because of A's snoring but because I was so over-tired, I couldn't sleep. I had a lot of time to think and analyse what I was doing wrong. I know my timing yesterday was way out - I don't normally do my exercise so - normally I get home and get out and then worry about dinner after that - THAT is what I need to do in future !!!
I have now set an alarm for 9pm that shouts "GO TO BED NOW" !
I feel like absolute cr*p today. When the alarm went off I couldn't believe it. I nearly cried. I snoozed it three times before dragging myself out of bed. All I can say is thank goodness the big meeting with the bank that was planned for today has been re-scheduled for Friday - I couldn't have handled that !!!!
Today is Cranky Pants Day.
Tomorrow will be better.
Linking in with the lovely Jess at Essentially Jess today for #IBOT
