Struggling lately...

Wednesday, September 18, 2013

I thought I'd get back to my normal routine once September started. Instead, I've been snacking every night, drinking Pepsi almost every day, only getting 4-6 waters in per day, zero exercise, and lots and lots of laying on the couch watching t.v.

I have a bad back caused by a bad mattress. I'm convinced it's killing me one night at a time. My back starts hurting 5-10 mins after I get to bed. I spend every night tossing and turning, trying to stretch my lower back out so it relaxes. I'm planning on replacing the mattress this weekend. I just need to do it or I'll never get a good night's sleep. Maybe, just maybe, once I'm sleeping better, I'll have the energy I need to make the changes I'm trying to make.

I set out a plan to change my habits 1 at a time. I don't worry about the other stuff until I make the first a habit. That's water. So my priority right now is to get my 8 waters in a day and track it. Once I get mad enough to just do it, it becomes regular pretty quickly.

    Hope the mattress does wonders for your back and your sleep situation!

Little changes can change everything. You will get there!
