I’m Way Too Tired

Filed under: Eat Less; Move More — bigfatqueer @ 10:04 pm

I have been working longer hours and my weekends have been spent shooting and editing video for the last couple of weeks. I need a day to just sit and unwind. Maybe this weekend, although I do want to shoot a couple of things. We’ll see.

The thing about work, though, is that it is going to get busier for me until the beginning of next year. There is a lot going on. I would go into more detail, but I have always made an effort to put a firewall between my online life and my job.

The problem with this is trying to stay healthy. There are so many things I want to do in addition to my job that I don’t get much rest trying to cram everything in. I wind up getting less sleep, which always makes it harder for me to manage my eating. Limited time makes it easy to eat readily available crap. I have had off days and on days in the last couple of weeks. Today was pretty good. I took food to work rather than pick something up. I had Greek yogurt and fruit late morning. Mid afternoon I had some mixed nuts/pumpkin seeds and a glass of V8. Tonight I had a peanut butter and banana sandwich on rye and some tomato basil soup with coconut milk, curry powder and Sriracha.

I walked two miles today. An extra half mile was added to what I planned since roadwork was being done at 79th Street and Riverside Drive and I had to walk extra (up a steep hill) to get to a bus stop that was functioning.

Now I am going to have a cocktail and go to bed. I probably will not be able to blog as frequently as I would like for a couple of months. Not only are time and energy limited, but when I work all the time I get really boring. If you follow my videos lately you may have noticed I’m posting footage of New York scenery rather than vlogging. By the time I get home I have nothing interesting to say, except I’m way too tired 🙂

  4. Two miles is 1000 calories burned, or 1 pound walked off so that’s good! :). Sounds like you’re doing everything in moderation, despite the ‘off’ days and that’s the best way to go 😉
