Back to good choices after sick & tired.

Thursday, May 23, 2013

I know I can be an emotional eater, but I am more of an exhaustion eater. When I am really tired, I really DO NOT CARE... I want what I want and I will have it. So that is my next challenge to conquer... evening snacking is pretty much gone.

So this morning, I woke up early and had that discussion with myself about the pro's and con's of getting up v. trying to go back to sleep. Even though I'm short sleep this week, I knew I wasn't going to fall back to sleep... so I bit the bullet and got vertical, putting on running clothes & shoes, swigged some water from my bedside bottle, took my vitamins, grabbed a banana, my GPS watch and iPod and headed out the door. The temp was about 60 and cloudy, perfect running weather... so I just went with it. There is something to be said for getting out the door and moving the body before you really know what you are doing. I got in 1.9 miles in about 22 minutes and 3241 steps. Even though I am tired, it was a good start to my day.

Today I am working hard to make better food choices. I have done well so far. I just have to make myself do the right thing even though I'm in Idonwannaimtired mode.

    Hope you get your mojo going and the tiredness gone soon. Sometimes it just feels like we are going thru the motions but that's alright, at least we are doing it. Once that mojo comes back, watch out world! You will be on fire!
    Hang in there.

    I logged on today needing inspiration. This is exactly the type of blog I needed to read. Thank you. Perhaps, I will also make steps to get out of my rut! I have been trying to get up at 5am to hit the gym before work with about 25% success currently.

    Hears to doing it even whenyadontwanna!
