A Little Natter: Sleepy edition

Workout: None
Calories: 2000

Me: It's 4:00 am, finally Brielle is asleep again. That was tough! Should I let the alarm ring at 5?

Me: I don't know, I already missed Monday's & Wednesday's workout?

Me: I could get up at 6:20 instead, I don't need to wash my hair today?

Can we say sleepy? Seriously, three days of sleepless nights has morphed me into the eye bag lady. I'll spare you the picture because it takes some serious effort to get the sunken eye look going, but I'm there! Jealous, much? Figured.

I have no idea what's going on with my little Bebe, she was doing so good before she got the crud. I don't know if it's the remaining cough, teething or the fact that she's more mobile now. Richard seems to think she's just one of those adventurous babies that don't like to sleep. Oh no!!! Any ideas?

I got her to take a nap at 5 so I’m hoping that helps, fingers crossed for tonight!

Because of last night's fiasco, you may have guessed correctly - I got no workout in the AM. I know, there's one of these stamped on my forehead today: L. I feel like such a slacker for not even coming close to my weekly workout goals, but at this point I take any sleep I can take.

Plus, if you're trying to loose weight what's more important: diet, exercise or sleep? I'm no genius, but I know it takes all three. What happens when sleep is out of your hands? What do you do then? Do you get any benefits if you try exercising when you're sleep deprived?

Maybe I should just drink lots of water, wait 40 minutes then decide if I should take my bags and go for a jog? Apparently, a full bladder can lead to better decisions. Now if I could just time it so that I have a full bladder right around the time I'm thinking about knocking people out of the way to raid that vending machine!

Can you imagine the sweet smell of chocolate snickers being suppressed by a full bladder? Can we say, “water please”?

On that note, I’m off to catch some zzz’s.

I have so much empathy for moms dealing with sleepless nights! Somehow, you're supposed to do everything, which sleeping several hours less every day. Be kind to yourself. Cut yourself some slack...and take a nap!
