Lack of sleep = Difficult Day

Wednesday, March 27, 2013

It is always more difficult when I don't get enough sleep. Last night I only slept about 4 hours. I had trouble falling asleep, and woke up early. This was because I was doing a little fretting about some happenings in life. Nothing major...but enough to cause me to worry. So really, sleeping isn't the actual "problem" in this case, but worrying! I know what to do about that. (TRUST GOD...hand it over to HIM and leave it in His care)---easier said than done.

I find that by late afternoon on those days, the temptation to just grab something to make myself "feel better" gets very strong. Today I survived. I didn't thrive, but I survived. I have stayed in my calorie limit, but I ate more carbs than necessary. I nearly stopped and bought a pizza for lunch, but drove by instead.

The things I was worrying about haven't "gone away" today, so tonight I need to handle those things better. Tomorrow is another rather busy day, and I need to be prepared to fight the craving battles that I face.

I know the Lord helped me get through today, because there were several times where I was ready to cave in. The day isn't over.......but I think I can make it through with God's help.
