4 December 2009 – a waste of a day off

What a waste of a day off. The only reason I got through four ten hour shifts was the thought of the three day weekend ahead. So, what did I do with it? Mostly I slept. When I wasn’t sleeping, I was dozing or staring into space. Maybe the team night out played a part. All those blasted Jäger bombs. Maybe I was hung over. Not being a drinker I don’t know all that much about hangovers and I don’t intend getting better acquainted with them.Personally I think the ten hour shifts played their part. Ten hours of stress, four days a week is very tiring. Seems to me having three days off a week is a bit pointless if you spend one of them asleep. How on earth am I going to do this week after week?

I was so tired and lethargic I forgot the Friday weigh in, that’s two weeks in a row with no weigh in now. Still, I don’t imagine there would have been anything I wanted to see on the scales this morning not after all those Jäger bombs last night. How many calories in a Jäger bomb I wonder? Probably millions. Google was a tad confused on the matter when I tried to look it up, lots of answers but no two the same. Even on the best estimates though I reckon I drank about six hundred calories. It’s all very well watching what you eat but it can all fall apart if you don’t watch what you drink too.

  1. Drink calories add up! Have you tried the livestrong website’s mydailyplate tool? find it at http://www.mydailyplate.com.. it will tell you the calories and nutritional content of almost anything you consume.

    Goodluck adjusting to the schedule! I used to work the same schedule.. it took awhile to get used to but it is nice after awhile.
