Let's go to bed

Monday, September 17, 2012

I joined the Better Sleep Challenge a few days ago and I was immediately faced with a challenge which was the reason for quitting the challenge the first time. The problem is this; whenever I became conscious of my sleeping habits everything goes gaga.

One of my major goals for joining the team was to discipline my sleep habits i.e. sleep early and wake early so that I can get as much done within my stipulated God-given 24 hours. Alas yesterday, I went to bed around 9:20pm did not sleep till around 10:30pm and because I my sub-subconscious was not asleep, I woke up less than 6 hours later.

Right now I am touchy, moody, a nagging headache, I think I caught the flu, my morale for a workout is low and I don’t know whether to call this ‘better sleep’ or ‘worst sleep’. But I know that I am not quitting this time around because fighters don’t quit.

In reference to my last blog on ‘saboteurs’, I want to use this medium to thank all sparkies for your comments, suggestions and above all your ability to associate with my weakness and encourage me, I am assuring you that all suggestions/comments are adequately documented.

Meanwhile, when I thought all external saboteurs had already been kept in their rightful places, one of them gave me a punch in the face (words) on Friday. She said something like “ask all the fat people, they are not happy with themselves, they all want to be like me” (like four overweight folks on seat). I was furious but no one had a hint I was not even with a frown, but right inside me I wanted to stand up and challenge her to a contest of energy/fitness and just to let her know I may be overweight but am not sick, am not frail and lazy like her.

I have got curves, I am voluptuous and I am very proud of it, I do not have to be THIN to be happy, I am fat, healthy and beautiful (I hope am not consoling myself, lol).

Anyway, I try to say something to her to make her understand I am still in my senses but something keeps pulling me back and letting me know I am winning and something will speak for me one day when I will be proud to make ‘Miss Thin Spoon’ my student in the “I AM DESPERATE TO BE FIT” class. I still remember that SP quote that says “At first they will ask why you’re doing it, later they’ll ask how you did it”.

"Like", if you are happy with yourself and love to be better.

    I need to work on my sleep. It makes a difference. Have figured out that Mondays need to be a rest day with going to bed early. I did it last night and feel like a new woman. Have been trying to push past it in previous weeks and it kind of sets the mood for the week.

    Grrrrr for that woman's comments! Not sure what makes people like that. I tend to think to myself that they are insecure. I hate to think people are just plain mean for no reason. I sometimes come back with quips like "well, let's get out there and see who can win a race?" Thing is I don't usually feel better when I say it:) grrrrrrrr

    Let's get our sleep in!!!

    Wow. That lady sounds VERY insecure. I think there's something to be said for people who are extremely obese, like can't leave the house. Of course, there's "something wrong." There are a lot of things "wrong."

    Everybody's got "something wrong" but she sounds like she's either stomping people to feel taller OR maybe she's simply clueless. Either way, you're more clever and STRONGER!
