My eating lately has spiralled out of control. We ran out of fresh veggies, and I started reaching for junky stuff. It's amazing how eating the wrong things can leave you wanting more, eating more, and never really getting you "full".
The worst part is how I feel. I feel (and look) bloated and uncomfortable.
While listening to SparkRadio today, though, I think I figured out why. Because of my husband's grandmother, spring break, and other stressors, I haven't been getting much sleep. Lack of sleep is linked to slowed metabolism, increased carb cravings, and all of that seems to jive with my experience. I'm working on getting back on track, but it's hard. If you have a bit of time, listen to today's SparkRadio episode. You'll be glad you did (even if they sound a little bit like those ladies in the public radio skit on Saturday Night Live):
Sleep is SO important!
I'm getting back on my plan... a plan that, by the way, I can tell you about now. :) I was selected to receive a free advance copy of the Spark Solution, and I figured the best way to review the book would be to follow the plan!
I won't go into detail here, because in a few days, I will be posting my full review of the plan.
