Sleepless in Seattle

Thursday, January 17, 2013

Ok, I'm not in Seattle but I'm exhausted. I didn't sleep well Sunday night but made it thru the day and then didn't sleep well Tuesday night either. By Wednesday morning, I was nearly in tears. I'm too tired to breathe. Well, not that tired but I think you know what I mean.

So yesterday, I mulled over what I wanted to do at lunch to work on some of my goals. I decided to take Wednesday as my day off. I was overly tired, which could lead to injuries that I didn't need and was fighting Hungry. You remember him?

He always tries to convince me that if I eat something (whatever he is pushing at the moment) then I'll feel better. Very rarely in my life has eating had anything to do with how I feel if you don't count the feeling of "overly full". I had to work hard to resist. In doing so, I was able to keep those calories in check, better than I have all week. Yeah for me. Boo for Hungry.

emoticon Cut calories 300/day - in range.

emoticon Walk 30 min/day - Intentionally choosing to take a day off. I needed it. Yeah for taking care of me!

I slept well last night even tho I got up once, I was able to go right back to sleep. I'm already making plans to go to the mall at lunch so I won't have to freeze. And I'm still watching out for Hungry's sneaky tricks.

    Good way to plan out things to your advantage. Glad you slept a bit better.
    Yes, I love the snow, since we don't get it very often.
    Sure miss when I was a kid and the ponds would freeze over and we would have big drifts, everywhere.

    Kudos to you for taking time to care for you. Sleep is a struggle for me too. It's been interesting following the patterns with my FitBit. If you come up with anything good to help, let me know!

    Hope you get another good night's rest tonight.

    Sleep is my demon too (or lack thereof).

    During my 55 days of selfishness I managed to get my sleep in order, then promptly let it go (sigh). Time to re-evaluate this. I KNOW I felt better.

    Keep fighting Hungry - throw everything you got at him - he's a sneaky devil, and loves to play with your Inner Brat. Both need to go to the Time-out corner for an extended stay.

    Stay STRONG!

    How can something so cute be so sneaky?

    Good for you for recognizing the need to take care of yourself. Getting run down makes it harder to get back up. I've noticed I sleep less well as the week goes along, so I need to figure out a way to improve on that.

    I hope you rested well and are having a ~much~ better day today!

    Sorry you're not getting enough sleep. Try to get to bed early tonight and if you've got a racing mind, write everything down before'll still be there in the morning. ;-)
