Another week zooms by


It's amazing how time flies when you are busy. But, I'm still not getting everything done that I want to. Grrrr!!!!

What I have figured out though is why not getting enough sleep makes you gain weight. Weird, I know, but I have figured out what's going on. At least with me. On Wednesday night I went to bed early and it threw my sleep patterns all off. Thursday I spent the day tired and I had a hard time sleeping on Thursday night. By yesterday I was exhausted. After feeding the birds I went back to bed for a bit, then I took a nap around 2 pm. I taught summer school and worked last night so it was a bit tough. But this made me understand what was happening. By being so tired I didn't have the energy to workout, also I woke up starving and had to eat something first thing. Then, all day I was craving carbs. I had a Burger King breakfast meal. Pizza with cinnamon breadsticks for lunch. Pizza and little donuts for dinner. Breadsticks for snack when I came home. There was nothing resembling a vegetable in there and very little protein. No wonder I feel like crap today. So that's how you gain weight when you are tired. You eat carbs to get instant fuel but carbs create a vicious cycle. Once you start eating carbs you want more carbs and on and on and on....And that makes you put on weight. I get it. So even though I have to work all day today I am going to eat right. I just had a bowl of Kashi Go Lean Crunch with a banana. For lunch I'm having a salad - even if I have to go buy one at Safeway. Hubby won't be home for dinner so I have no reason to pig out. He made spaghetti the other night, I think I'll have that with more veggies. Also, I need to drink lots of water today. I've been really slacking on the water intake. Hopefully I'll feel better tomorrow and not so exhausted...
