"Feeding" the "Hunger" the Right "Food"
Tuesday, August 21, 2012
I am SO tired...and it's only 7 pm. I was up early this morning...5 am...and I gave plasma today. I had a couple of stressful clients today. I think it really drained me. I'm going to go to bed at 8 pm. It sounds so early! But you know what, I'm tired...and I need to sleep. I realize that when I am tired, I am "hungry"...for sleep. So, that is what I will be "feeding" my body this evening. I'm really trying to get the mind/body connection right. This is a big deal for me. I have been really bad about trying to fuel up for energy in the past when I really just needed to go to bed. So, yes, I will go to bed early this evening.
I got my walk in today and was able to walk a tiny bit longer than usual due to getting a little bit earlier start. Yay!
I'm really pleased that all my vitals continue to be really good, mid-range numbers when I go in to give plasma. It's such a nice confirmation that I'm doing the right things inside and out. I'm really anxious to get this next pound off and re-claim my 70-lbs-lost mark. I will get there. I'm eating in range every day, exercising, and getting a daily deficit. It will work. I'm trying this time to be very aware of any danger signs in my life that might "drive" me to overeat. This past weekend, I reviewed my weight chart and it was very evident when things were going on in my life that were "too much" for me. This time around, I am trying to review things and see the problems before they push my buttons too much. I am determined to learn to deal with the hard stuff without turning to food.
Hope you all had a great Tuesday! Keep up the good work! Thanks for the encouragement! Spark on!
