I am still recovering from a cold and from my month-long breakdown of healthy habits. I did not sleep well last night--I probably should have taken the NyQuil tablets that afforded me two glorious nights of sleep earlier this week, but I am not a pharmaceuticals fan and I am reluctant to use chemicals to support a natural process like sleep, which means that I deal with chronic insomnia. What's wrong with this picture?
Note to self--no more birthday weeks that turn into a month. It is not worth the discomfort of getting back on track. Just four short weeks ago, I actually felt good. I enjoyed my healthy, sugar-free, programmed eating and consistent exercise habits. Now I feel awful, and I believe that the poor habits left me susceptible to this rotten cold. I have also regained three-ish pounds, when I was only 1.5 pounds away from my ultimate goal. This is distressing.
Thank you, Miss Crankypants. That will do. Stop b!+@#ing, start changing.
