Monday reboot: glitch

Monday, April 23, 2012

It's one thing to go to bed on time with the plan of getting up at 6:30. It's another to then lie there for almost 4 hours before finally falling asleep. So getting up was almost 8. But after a little wakeup time, I will be hitting the exercise. It's cold and the wind is HOWLING out there, so biking to appointments is not going to happen. But I will brave it for my mile of the day.

Monday reboot

Sunday, April 22, 2012

I have been doing great with the biking, but in the adjusting to the biking, the strength training has fallen by the wayside. That's okay; things need to be flexible. And between being sick, having sick friends, and everything else in life, a little flexibility was highly necessary.

But tomorrow I want to get back on schedule. Which means getting back to strength training in the mornings. But whereas my mornings used to be ST and cardio, the biking needs to be more flexible depending on circumstance. So it will be ST in the morning, and cardio if it looks like the biking is going to be a shorty, or ST with plans for biking later.

I do better if things are set in stone, but the biking doesn't allow that. So I have to focus on scheduling flexibility.

30 Days of Biking -- misery edition

Sunday, April 22, 2012

"OMG, I don't want to bike today! It's cold--they're threatening snow--and windy, and just miserable."

"You don't have to bike," my hubby replied. "Instead, you can curl up inside and stay warm, and at the end of the month look back and despise yourself for missing this one day."

....

Sometimes I hate it that he knows me so well. Sweater, sweatshirt, leather jacket, and scarf, but I got in my mile. 22 for 22 days now. Thank you, my sweet.

Okay, he seriously wins the poker face award if he said that without cracking a grin until it sunk in.

    :) 'Yote has that same super-power (getting me off my butt when I don't want to, and doing it in such a way I don't feel like a failure because I didn't wanna). :) Yay for awesome mates!

And GO YOU!! You're doing SUCH a great job keeping this going! Here's hoping snow doesn't screw it up for you! (One of the many things 'Yote doesn't miss about the NEO is the amount of snow - we get far less than you guys do!)

Oh, and for the record I'm sorry I've been so AWOL around here and the internetz in general lately. Using 'Yote's laptop has only been marginally successful today (it apparently doesn't like the number of things I'm trying to do at once...about ready to toss it out a window). GODS I can't wait for my new PC to get done being built! (And gods, that was horrible grammer) :)

Your body sometimes lies to you

Saturday, April 21, 2012

I spent the night taking care of my best friends' three children. I have a very special relationship with these kids, and was happy to help out during a medical emergency. But I didn't sleep well due to listening for them, being awakened at 1am by the baby, and having the 4-year-old up at 6. So I'm rather sleepy.

My body thinks it's hungry for simple carbs, desperate for sugar. In the past, I would have been raiding the kitchen, feeding myself empty calories. But now I recognize that this isn't hunger; this is sleep deprivation that's trying to overcome itself through a blood sugar boost.

My body right now is a cranky toddler who doesn't understand that she needs sleep. Fortunately, I am smart enough to recognize that. So I'm off to put this toddler to bed, instead of hyping her up on sugar to keep her going.

    First of all, enjoy your nap! You certainly earned it!!
Second of all, great job on your self control and taking the time to analyze the situation and learn from past experiences. I think that a lot of people will benefit from reading this blog. The will hopefully learn the value and corallation between deep restful sleep and weight loss. With out a good steady sleep routine and cycle your body holds on to pounds and then adds to it with the non-hunger sugar cravings that happen in tandem.

    Maturity brings wisdom. Awesome work for recognizing your limitations and realities.

    One of the things I learned fairly early on this journey wasw how much sleep dep can affect my weightloss, both because my body holds on to pounds when I haven't slept AND the non-hunger that happens in tandem. Working 3rd shift made that VERY apparent VERY quickly. :)

    You have an uncanny ability to recognize what your body really needs - I have noticed this in several blogs now. Very impressive how in tune you are! I have felt an increased appetite over the last week or so. I am going to think of other possible reasons from now on!
