FlyLady - Day 28

Day 28 - Eat Good Food, Drink Your Water, And Get Your Rest!

So this is something I struggle with too...not the eat good food. I feel like I eat good...not the best, but good. I love fruits and veggies and meat. I do love snacks...popcorn is my biggest weakness. I could literally eat it everyday! The thing I struggle with most about eating is trying not to snack after the kids go to bed. It's horrible to eat that late at night and I know it, but still around 9:30 - 10:30 I just get the munchies! I am trying though!

Water...I don't drink water! I mean I do, but it's been changed into Iced Tea. I LOVE iced tea. We go through a 3qt pitcher of Iced Tea in a day. I'm not a coffee person I'm a tea person. I do like Diet Coke and Root Beer, but we don't buy pop. I will only drink pop if we are eating out at fast food and it comes with the meal or we are at someone elses house and they have it. If we eat at a restaurant and have to order a drink I just get water with lemon...it's too expensive!

Rest is something I cherish, but I also cherish my time at the end of the day with no kids. So it's a fine line between getting enough rest and getting enough 'Me/ Me & Michael' time. We do not stay up later than 11pm, but sometimes I am still SO tired in the morning. That is partially because of the meds I'm on, but I know it's also because my body is exhausted and I need more rest. I think we are going to try to go to bed around 10pm a few days a week to help because 6am always comes too soon!
