Soo as you can see I’ve been having plenty of fun (and stressful) times.. and being a total dummy when it comes to eating well + working out. I have managed to get in a fair amount of workouts, but my eating has been completely atrocious.
I am really tired of promising myself over and over that “next week” will be different. Along with saying “next week”, I’ve been really good at justifying eating crap because of all the events that have been going on. People keep asking me about “the dress” and I keep telling them that I haven’t started looking. Which is mostly true. I am the type that needs to try on things to see how I like them, and I am NOT taking this body to go try on dresses. I’m too embarrassed. I haven’t even been truthful with people when they ask why I haven’t started looking. It completely revolves around being uncomfortable with myself. (Not necessarily the complete lack of time).
To keep myself accountable I signed up for a myfitnesspal account.. my name is Jeni850. For those of you who use this, would you do me a favor and add me? I think knowing that people I “know” are on there will help keep me accountable :-). Also, any tips or tricks that I should know about on myfitnesspal?
In addition to eating better, I know that I also have to get better about working out consistently. The biggest hurdle for me on this one is my insomnia. I know it probably sounds like an excuse, but I often don’t get to sleep until 2-3 in the morning and then I have to be up and ready for work by 8am. I’ve tried going to the doctor, over the counter meds, teas, avoiding caffeine, reading, hot baths + everything that I can possibility think of and nothing ever helps.. It’s so hard to peel myself out of bed in the morning, but I’m hoping that the sun rising will help me wake up earlier (it’s helped in the past).. If I could just consistently wake up and get to the gym I think that the exercise might help me sleep sooner/better… it’s such a never ending cycle.
Does anyone else suffer from insomnia? What do you do to help yourself fall asleep?
