Warning, this is recap of a sleep deprived, cognitively challenged individual trying to stay on a fitness journey. Not my best moments being shared here. (this week)
I need to sleeeeep!
Night after night, no matter what I took.
Why is this stuff showing up in my IG timeline when I can't sleep.
Sleeping less than four hours will age you fast, this just adds to the sleeplessness anxiety.
|Monday||rest and way too much eating!|

I tested out the treadmill Tuesday. Maybe it was lack of sleep, but this felt draining...
I use 1% incline and you would have thought I was running up a mountain.
I ran a mile after our walk.
Great song, but I wonder what the heck this picture means every time this song pops up on my PL
Even after six miles Wednesday evening, I couldn't stay asleep all night. I wanted to cry...
and of course there is always something to tempt me, but I made it through the day without eating any cupcakes. Totally blew that later...
The green beer did not keep me asleep all night either.
Sonic only charges $1 for drinks at 6:45 a.m. - I said, "Give me two!" ugh...when I fall off the wagon, I fall bad.
I have only indulged in diet soda a few times the past three months, but being tired and grumpy got the best of me.
Friday, when the button on my pants hurt my belly, I said enough.
Operation Time. For. A. Change.
I went for a good ride after work around the neighborhood. (hilly)
I woke up and went for a bike around the neighborhood again.
Later, the hubs and I went to gym.
I had every intention of going to the gym to work legs, but my head hurt and I felt kind of blah. Medicine started to kick it by 4ish, but I just declared it a rest day. I can do legs tomorrow. Eating - very reasonable :) I didn't fall apart because I didn't work out.
Lack of sleep the past few weeks has been a big contributor to my weight issues. 7 lbs now...ugh.
The past few weeks:
- two extra servings of pretzels late night
- extra tablespoons of peanut butter on my banana
- appetizers and soup....sure, why not?
- sure another cocktail is fine (because I can't get up and run)
I been eating all the food, plus some.
This weekend went much better. I am gaining control.
A little runfession...sorry Marcia, I am early with this one.
The marathon I hoped to run was March 13th. Instead of crossing a finish line, I am more out of shape than ever (my own fault) and it just ate me up a bit. I can't change that I am still NOT a marathoner right now, but I don't have to be getting all roly poly.
Among other things, I think this played a big part in my lack of sleep. I am trying to be over it.
Do you catch yourself snacking and eating more when you are tired?
Who else had green beer St. Patty's day?
Sleeping well lately?
How was your week?
I hope you have a wonderful week! Thanks for stopping by ❤
