Yesterday I have been SO BUSY that I forgot I was over exhausted!
The past one week has been really really hectic for me. Applications for purchase of Izumio and Super Lutein have been high as the promotion for 1 free product ends on 30 Sept 2016 and many people are submitting their applications at the eleventh hour. My online store business has been pretty busy too.
I haven’t been getting sufficient sleep since a week ago. After the week-long school holiday, I have been having a hard time waking up at 4:45 a.m. again. With barely 5 hours of sleep each day, I am a mummified mummy with puffy eye bags and dark rings round my eyes 🙁
Yesterday morning, I woke up with a slight throb on my head due to lack of sleep. I told myself that I would just skip exercise for the day and instead hop back onto bed after sending the girls off to their transporters. But the determined fitness freak inside me screamed out to me to just get onto the walking tracks. And so I did, for half an hour. But as I walked, I could feel my heavy eyes drooping. I was dozing off on the walking tracks, in the pre-dawn darkness. Have you ever felt so frazzled and sleep deprived that you actually dozed off while walking or driving? I had many times. I know it is dang dangerous to snooze off for even a few seconds while driving. I did not even have the energy to run and I soldiered on for half an hour of brisk walking yesterday and this morning.
Back home, I just wanted to plonk my weary body onto the bed. But I downed a packet of Izumio hydrogen water. And what do I know? After my shower, I worked in front of my computer until 6pm! Non-stop, except for leaving my desk to prepare lunch for Cass and for toilet breaks. I was so busy that I had totally forgotten that my body was exhausted. I even skipped my usual daily 20-minute power nap. In the evening, I downed another packet of Izumio. I really needed extra packets of Izumio yesterday to give me the energy as I was totally zonked out. Izumio really rocks!! How can I ever function without my most trusted Izumio? My life as a work-from-home-mum is REALLY TOUGH and hectic. I find that it’s way more stressful that having a full-time job at the office. And I CANNOT afford to fall sick. Thankfully I have my Izumio to keep me mentally and physically strong.
Breakfast yesterday was something light and plain which I could eat whilst seated working in front of the computer and filling out forms simultaneously. Yup, mothers are really good in multi-tasking 😀
Today I am feeling a tad lightheaded from having my eyes glued to the computer screen on top of filling out so many forms for the past 2 days, with no break to rest.
Yesterday’s breakkie – Vanilla cocoa hazelnut granola with organic multi puffs (puffed buckwheat, sorghum and brown rice), organic sunflower seeds crackers and dried cranberries. I didn’t have the appetite to eat anything more than this.
Yesterday’s dinner was pork chop loin with onion sauce and blanched veggie. Cooking was done pretty late again. Thank God for Drama Queen who helped me to cook the rice, wash the vegetables and fry the onions sauce when she got home from school at 4pm.
Today is yet another super busy day and I still haven’t got the chance to take my power nap to recharge my batteries coz I’ll have to leave the house in a bit to get some errands done. I’ve already delayed doing them for days and I can’t procrastinate anymore.
