I know I already blogged today, but I'm feeling an itch. A need to sort through something. What? I'm not sure exactly. An introspection of my habits of late. I'm thinking about my occasional mindless gnoshing and lack of motivation to exercise.
Okay, one thing definitely affecting my exercise goals is the children and the sleep patterns. Those weeks wherein I was able to get up before work to workout, the kids were sleeping through the night. The last month has been nothing but head colds, ear infections, and upset stomachs, so I'm not sleeping well and not getting out of bed in time to exercise. That seems to translate into sporadic, haphazard exercise that I can't maintain.
Where the food issue is coming from, I'm not sure. My only guess is that slowly letting sugar creep back in has caused a lot of my old habits to resurface. I started a no sugar pledge about two weeks ago, but I didn't stick to it. I think I've got to give that some serious consideration as a possible root cause of my mindless eating.
I stalk the blogs and team pages for activity instead of getting up to do something: exercise, prepare healthy foods, whatever. I need to reel that in on the weekends. Sparkpeople is awesome, but I have to work it to my advantage.
