OK body...I get it...

Wednesday, March 19, 2014

I haven't made it to the gym the past 2 days, which I find frustrating. However, I now know why. I fell asleep extremely early both days and slept through my gym time. Last night was the worst. I felt horrible and exhausted. Even though my brain was telling me ok, lets go, my body was fighting me. I fell asleep at 6:30, woke up at 10, went to the bathroom and changed, went back to bed and slept on and off until 7:30 by accident since I was supposed to be up 20 minutes earlier than that. However, this morning, I'm not overly tired, I don't feel like crap, I have energy and I learned my lesson. If my body is telling me to sleep, I need to sleep instead of fighting it. I probably fought it for over a month between my boyfriends weird schedule and his inability to stay quiet and not plop on the bed to wake me up, or to actually wake me up because he tells me I'm not allowed to sleep when I'm exhausted. Which he's being playful when he does that but I'm going to have to sit down and tell him to stop doing it because of what it does to my system. We also haven't seen much of each other because of it so he wants to talk and spend time together, but I need to sleep and there comes the 4-5 hour nights of sleep. Then he wonders why I'm so cranky. MEN! I appreciate that he wants to spend time together, but let me get my sleep! If this continues I'll just tell him to go sleep on the couch. emoticon I know I'm mean. Haha, but it's pretty bad when my friend will yell at him for keeping me up because they know how much sleep I don't get in a night, even a good night.

Since I'm doing better today I will probably put about 2 hours in at the gym today to try and make up for the two days I didn't get to go and also add an exercise day on Saturday as well. If that happens I'll move my weigh-in day to Sunday. So many things to think about. Sheesh.

Hope everyone's week is going great!

    Definitely talk to the BF. Sleep, like the others have said, is so very important and of course it is going to affect your moods! The weather has been playing tricks on us here in Alberta, so I would imagine that it causes quite a bit of chaos with our bodies too. I've been super tired and slept in this morning, but I will find the time for fitness when my body has rested enough.

    There's not a lot to add ! Sleep when you need it and push when you know you can. =)

    I've had to give in to my body lately too and just rest. Your body knows when you need to slow down and it's always a good idea to listen because when you don't, at least in my case, it when I binge or get sick.
