This week is another NO REST WEEK for me!! I can’t believe it! I just got to know from Alycia that she still has to go to school this Saturday to wrap up a project that she and her team mates are working on though it’s a school off-day this Saturday. Guess who’s going to be the Grab driver? It’s not the hubs as this week is another full-house week for him. And on Sunday, Alycia has to leave the house at 6:30 a.m. for a marathon! For Sunday’s marathon, I am going to tai-chi the driver’s chore to him! I need my sleep!😴
Ok to be fair, these are my responsibilities as a mother. I shouldn’t complain too much. Before I know it, the girls will blow the coop and I will be longing to be their driver again. But I really need that 3-4 extra hours over the weekend to stack some Z’s before a new crazy week starts again. I just need to blow off steam here coz I feel so sleep deprived the past one week. I’ve been waking up with a nagging headache the past two days and feeling really zombified in the morning.
Not getting enough sleep is just as bad as eating junk and it’s impacting my cholesterol level that’s quite high as I have familial hypercholesterolaemia (genetic high cholesterol). Researches have found that sleep loss leads to changes in genes that are responsible for regulating cholesterol levels and sleep deprivation may have a negative impact on cholesterol levels. I’m already not getting enough sleep, so I should eat healthily to prevent my cholesterol level from skyrocketing.
Here’s what I’ve been eating lately..
Breakfast of low-fat sugar-free yoghurt with Brazil nuts, pistachios, organic goji berries, pomelo and seasoned Korean seaweed.
Dinner of blanched organic ferns with peanut sauce from hubby’s kitchen. His Indonesian cook makes the best peanut sauce!
Dinner of organic traditional rolled oats with beef bolognese sauce, while the girls had Penne pasta.
Sunday night dinner of organic red bell pepper with peanut sauce and sauteed assortment of organic shrooms.
Cooked organic rolled oats with low-fat sugar-free yoghurt and fresh pomegranate. Sherilyn made this for breakfast.
As a result of eating clean with an intensified workout session five times a week, all my pants and skirts have been dropping off my waist! 😬
