Hour 39: catching up food logs and sleep

Saturday, October 19, 2013

I got seven and a half hours of sleep tonight and I feel so much more rested than yesterday when I had only three and a half. Aahhh!
I have a bit of time before work so I'm catching up my food logs as best I can since some of the foods I ate aren't really listed in the food directory. Like the am crunch wrap from Taco Bell that I am addicted to. Actually, just potatoes in general are soooo delicious these last few days.
So I found out that I'm about 1087 calories from reaching my goal of a 1750 calorie deficit. So, the good news is that there is some deficit already. Yay! (The scale, however is tellin me the opposite, but that could be my crazy work/sleep/no exercise schedule. I'm not worried.)
Now I'm staring at a pile of laundry that I need to fold...but I don't wanna, can I do it later? :). I think I'll do some work preparation instead.

    When you don't get enough sleep you start to crave simple carbs for energy to keep going. Then, on top of it, your body starts releasing hormones that screw with your metabolism because it feels stressed and thinks that you're pushing yourself so hard because you're in an extended life-or-death situation. Slowing your metabolism allows your body to have enough stored energy for the long haul should food become scarce. This is why sleep is so important.
