Tired...One Thing at a Time...

Friday, March 15, 2013

I am sitting here very tired and with a lot of things to do before my trip. My sleep has been interrupted the past two nights and it's wearing on me. I've been tired all day. Ugh. The worse thing about being tired is that it is a strong food trigger for me. Last night, I fell off the wagon and binged due to exhaustion and discouragement. I don't want to do the same thing this evening. So I am trying to just take it one thing at a time...get something done, check it off, do the next thing. It will all happen...or not. Binge eating will not change it or make it better.

I was going to start C25K W4D1 today...but I have decided not to. I think, physically, this would not be a good idea tonight. I need all my energy just to get through the next few hours and tasks and hopefully get to bed early so that, when I get up early for my flight tomorrow, I will be well-rested.

It was really nice to leave work today and think that I am "off." At my previous job, I was always on I never felt like I was off...even when I was supposed to be. With this job, when I walk out the door, that's it. No one will call me...what I didn't get done will be taken care of while I am gone or wait until I get back. It's a really good feeling.

I'm excited to see Amelia and Bronwyn this weekend! We are having their pics taken together at Target on Sunday. I think that will be so cute. Also, I think in years to come, it could be something they will enjoy seeing.

Hope you all had a great week. Keep up the good work! Thanks for the encouragement! Spark on! emoticon emoticon

    Sounds like you are certainly tired and know what trips your trigger!!! Stay away from binging on any food and you made the right decision regarding NOT to start a new week of C25K. Enjoy the grandkids and come back refreshed and renewed!

    Cathy, enjoy your time off with those grand babies! Their little spirits will rejuvenate you with whatever you need. I have found those little blue sleep-aid pills to be very helpful when my sleep is interrupted. I take one about 60 minutes before going to bed. No side effects, and I wake up rested the next morning.

    It's time to take care of you, Cathy! When you're exhausted, you gotta rest up! Great that you know your limits & can adjust accordingly! Just continue to take it all one day at a time! My thinking is that if you just attend to the day, you can do it! Then tomorrow, you do it again! And pretty soon, you've got a whole string of days that you done did it!!!

emoticon for doing it ONE DAY AT A TIME!!!

Now, get some rest girl...cause those grandbabies are waitin' for ya!!! EnJOY every last minute w/them!!! Safe travels!!!
