I have to say I think I am dealing with the constant changes in daily schedule quite well. Between weather, renovations and carpooling to camp, I find myself having to figure out a workout routine that will fit our schedule daily not weekly but daily. It is a bit overwhelming but I am dealing with it. I have been working out almost daily but it is different every week and everyday. This is unlike my school year schedule. I know exactly where, what and time my workout routines are each day. Of course, I need to adjust for snow days and delays, sickness (both mine or my children) and getting called in to work at the last minute but still the routine is there most days. However, things changed and I am doing a pretty good job rolling with the daily changes. I feel better now that I see I am dealing with these constant daily changes. I still find something and sometime to workout.
Another thing I am trying to deal with is my sleep habits. As some of you know from past blogs and status feeds. I am a troubled sleeper. I can't get to sleep easy, or stay a sleep long and get up early not always feeling well rested. I been prescribe meds from my Doctor but I am worry I will become addicted to them. However, recently talking to a friend she said she had a similar problem and her doctor prescribe an over the counter tablet. So, I went out yesterday and bought some. I did the same last night as her and took the pills. I got almost 7 hours of straight sleep! Mind you, I sleep 4-7 hours a night but usually within a 9-10 hours span with constantly getting up and trying desperately to get back to sleep. This time I feel asleep pretty fast for me and stayed asleep for a straight 7 hours. I did not even get up to go to the bathroom which I do every night 2-3 times. I can hardly wait to see if there will be a difference in my energy level today. I know it is too soon to see any real difference but I am still excited.
Who knows maybe this new sleep pattern will help me lose the few extra pounds from vacation and get me off my plateau too! It would be nice to finally reach my goal weight.
