One of my biggest hurdles is getting enough sleep. I try, I really do. My husband's work hours are a big hindrance in my quest for adequate sleep. The alarm goes off (multiple times) starting at 4am. No matter how hard I try I cannot ignore it or fall back asleep once I wake. I go to bed as early as I can after all of the kids' activities and getting them to bed. Nothing seems to work. Now this week I have added middle-of-the-night insomnia to the mix. I fall asleep for a few hours, then I am awake for 3-5 hours in the middle of the night.

The result of this lack of sleep is that my willpower is diminished during the day and my emotional eating is much harder to control. I am fighting it with everything I have. So far I am hanging in there. But I really need to get a handle on this.

    I'm so sorry that you are having trouble sleeping. That is the worst. Great job on pushing through and staying on track. emoticon

    Will there be some extra sleep over spring break?
