Yesterday I had to be up early to go to a breakfast for work. I had to get there in time to set up a display, so I was worried I would sleep through my alarm. I went to bed at 10:30 and woke up at 1:30. I didn't sleep solid after that, so I was ridiculously tired all day. I kept noticing how unmotivated I felt to do anything, including track my calories. I wanted to eat chips, but I did not...smallish victory. I did eat more than my one a day dark chocolate fix. My self talk was pathetic...bordering on neurotic.
But last night I took a lavendar scented bath before going to bed, read a little Julia Cameron, (author of "The Artist Way) and vowed tomorrow would be a fresh start.
I slept sound for 9 plus hours, got up and did my three pages of writing, half an hour on the treadmill, and back to tracking my calories.
I'm learning the bad effect lack of sleep has on every part of my life. Good to know.
