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.
