The sleepies.

Thursday, March 22, 2012

Have you ever had that feeling like in the middle of the day, or at the beginning of the day or just when ever, where you just can't stop yawning, or you know for a fact you could sleep standing up right where you are. I call it the sleepies. Sometimes I get the sleepies regardless if i have had an adequate nights sleep, or three cups of coffee and 6 5 hour powers ( alright i may be exaggerating). The worst is at work.

I work at a restaurant for anyone who doesnt know. if I happen to be working a double shift, I for some reason get what i call the midshift sleepies. I feel like i can't get to my tables quick enough, and I struggle to keep up with everything, while yawning yawns at record pace.

But the worst part, and the point of my entire blog, is getting the sleepies before you workout. Every morning I take my child to day care, and then I come back for a few minutes right before i go see my trainer or get my morning workout routine in. But if I get the sleepies before that time, i will make every excuse not to go, and go right back to bed, when i know for a fact that if i go workout i will get rid of the sleepies and actually be way more energized for the day.

the point that I have realized through my sleepies this week , is that i need to stop making excuses, and this is one of them. A good work out will do so much for your day.. What excuses do you have?

    I get the sleepies too. Turned it out it was because my iron levels were extremely low. I found if I work out - it actually helps me be more alert. I work for an IT company so some days it is easy to say - well if I skip my workout I can get more done on a project. Usually I end up not getting anymore done because I am struggling to fight falling asleep.
