For people who still have to be to work at a certain time every day, the time change just requires your adjustment. For a momma like me, the time change results in a schedule shuffle. Shuffle the sleeping schedule, shuffle the feeding schedule, shuffle it all.
Alex went to bed just after 8 last night and she slept until almost 10 this morning! I slept until she did and woke up with a killer headache. I’ve been fighting a headache since Friday afternoon, which I have attributed to the front that moved in and brought all the rain this weekend. It’s a sinus pressure headache that throbs when I move or bend over. I’m sure the fact that I slept 10+ hours last night also contributed to the headache. I’ve taken a decongestant and that is helping. I’m hoping that the longer I’m awake the better the headache will get. I want to run today and I can’t exactly do that when it hurts just to walk.
Alex’s first feeding of the day is usually about 7:30. This morning it was about 10:15. I’m guessing our schedule will continue to shuffle a bit for the next few weeks until she gets into a new routine. That makes me a circus performer, adjusting to the unpredictable movement of my juggling pins. I’m cool like that.
Today looks to be sunny, but not too warm. I think I’ll hit the gym while Alex has therapy. I’m hoping that we get to jog outside the rest of the week and enjoy the warming weather.
Want a health tip from PBS? Morning PBS that is targeted toward little ones? You have to sing it in a cartoon voice to make it accurate… “Low Fat, High Fiber, Lots of water, Exercise!” That is their tip for little ones to be healthy, but I think we should all take note. After our fast food frenzy on Saturday, I was beyond ready to eat real food yesterday. My body feels so much better when I’m not taking in all the fried foods that are loaded with salt. Drew is a gracious eater, meaning that he will pretty much eat whatever I give him. That makes it easier for me to feed us healthy foods, because I know he will at least be willing to try whatever I make. He’s pretty cool like that.
