I will not be derailed!

Monday, July 21, 2014

Me and sleep do not always get along.

Last week we had a pretty bad falling out, and I just barely slept the entire week. Why? Heat wave? Kittens in the bed? Fan on or fan off? All of these reasons added up to a perfect storm of insomnia. And when I have insomnia I am barely functioning during the day, much less exercising.. and all I want to eat is junk food that comforts me.

Yup, it was that bad.

I'm not even getting on the scale to find out what the damage is. In fact, I might just put the scale away for awhile and not worry about the number. I really need to just focus on making good choices for exercise and food.

That being said, did I get up to run today? No, I did not. I did make my 10k steps goal twice over the weekend, and I DO plan to run tomorrow. I have to redo week 4 of my C25k because last week was non-existent.

But I will NOT be derailed! I'm still in this thing! One bad week doesn't mean I'm done. I'm getting back up, dusting myself off, and marching forward. I can totally do this!

    I'm going to try adopting your attitude; I don't sleep either, and yep, when I'm tired, refined carbs are my "Snuggie." I think I'll do better to focus on healthy food choices as well---that darn scale feels like a ball and chain.
