Two nights in a row. Random thinking waking me, and holding me captive. The thinking not very profound; just to-do lists, thoughts of people, and thoughts about weight and body image. Do I really need to be awake for this!
Yesterday I made it through the day just fine, a bit quiet, slow, and sleepy by late afternoon. I even skipped my workout- I should have gone and done a little...
The problem came when I arrived home. I gave in to all the carb craving sleep deprivation hormonal fluxuations. I allowed myself to lay on the couch and eat junk food. I typically avoid processed foods. I eat a few pieces of dark chocolate each night as a treat, and spend my days eating fruits, veggies, and healthier proteins. I cook my food with coconut oil, olive oil, real butter. I rarely feel deprived. But then a night or two of no sleep happens and bam, all I want is junk. I am sure I will pay for it in a gastointestinally annoying way today.
My goal for the day will be to drink lots of water, eat healthy, and to not forget my Sleepy Time Tea tonight!
