My Trouble Goal


Tuesday, March 03, 2009

Aside from emotionally eating, my biggest trouble goal is getting enough sleep. With two little kiddos under 4, the only time I get to myself during the day is after they go to sleep. That, coupled with the fact that I'm a night owl, makes it very difficult for me to get enough rest, as my kiddos are early risers. It's like a love-hate, make that love-hate-love relationship with sleep. As a tired mommy, I'm always seeking & desperate for more sleep. But, when it comes to 10, 11, and then midnight, I'm loving my alone time & am loving being up late. When the kiddos wake up, I'd do almost anything to get more sleep. It's like an addict craving drugs, alcohol, whatever. And, if I do get enough sleep, I find my head is clearer & I'm more patient w/ the kids, but I can never get enough to feel fully rested anymore. The week or two that I did get to bed by 11pm at least 4 nights per week (one of my goals on SparkPeople.com), I lost two pounds one week and a pound and a half the next week. I've never lost that much in such a short amount of time, and I haven't since then, b/c, I think, I'm not getting adequate rest. So, that's what I have to say about my trouble goal. :-) I should really get to bed soon!

    Definitely a goal worth striving for...for health, sanity, weight loss, etc. But I know it's hard. I wish I had some brilliant suggestion to offer you, but I don't. Still, I'll refer you to the Daily Spark blog about rewards, just in case you find it helpful http://www.dailyspark.com/blog.asp?
