Big sigh. It’s Wednesday. Half way there.
I’m tired. I have been sleeping so poorly the last two weeks and it finally caught up to me. I ended up taking half a sick day Monday from work. Shark Week showed up and I was in a lot of pain, cramps, back seizing up, migraine. I was beyond functioning like a normal person. So I left work at lunch time and promptly crashed on the couch. I never nap, so the face that I slept for over an hour speaks volumes to my level of discomfort and exhaustion. And I would have kept sleeping if a certain 100lbs monster didn’t sit himself on my gut and cry loudly in my face.
I’ve gone as far as to finally cave and buy myself some melatonin and it is a god send let me tell you. It’s been taking me as long as two hours to fall asleep at night only to be restless and wake up half a dozen times every night. But the last few nights I’ve been out within half an hour and only woken up two or three times a night. Much better. And melatonin is the naturally produced sleep hormone your brain [is supposed to] releases so there’s no sleep hang over the next day.
|And lack of sleep. That’s a big limiter.|
Granted, I’m still playing catch up. I immediately fell back asleep after my alarm went off this morning. So to try and make up for my missed run I came into work an hour early so I can leave by 4pm and try to run when I get home.
Also, It’s about time for a new swim suit already. I feel like I just bought mine, but apparently from what I’m told they have about a six month life span with heavy training. And my straps decided not to do their job any more yesterday morning. Hello girls. That cut my swim about 200 meters short. Oops. I’ll be wearing a sports bra for my top until I can get myself a new one.
And it looks like we may finally be seeing the end of winter soon. The ten day forecast calls for all 30’s and 40’s with the exception of a couple high 20’s days. But it looks like it will start to be consistently vaguely spring like soon, which is so exciting. I’m very sick of the gym and am pumped at the prospect of moving all my workouts outside. I do so much better outside. Yay spring!
