A lot has happened since my last exercise check-in, and these events are making a BIG difference. Most importantly, I am going to bed between 9 and 10 p.m. and getting between 9 and 10 hours of sleep. I wake up rested now.
I also moved my exercise time to the mornings. I didn't plan to do this, but I have found that it is working for me right now. I am feeling energized after my workout and drinking lots of water in the morning.
After working out, I am hungry so this new routine is also helping me eat during the day. I am eating more often for a total of less calories.
So, I am on day 5 of my new streak: I am sleeping more, working out regularly, and eating more often. Changing my sleep has changed the rest of my behaviors, and I am now setting myself up for success. Its only day 5, but day 5 it is!
Another important discovery I have made is that my fatigue and stubborn weight is the result of a hypothyroid. I am so relieved! So, over the past five days I have been reminded that:
I CAN MAKE HEALTHY DECISIONS FOR MYSELF.
I KNOW THAT THOSE DECISIONS WILL MATTER.
What a difference a week makes!
