Hey Sparkies,

So the past 2 days have been okay with today being much better than yesterday.

So I started yesterday on the right foot by getting my Insanity workout in despite having a somewhat upset stomach. I then went to class and after my afternoon class was cancelled I came home. I was SUPER tired though because I'd only gotten a few hours sleep the night before. Unfortunately I just couldn't fall asleep and at the same time I was just super hungry and craving junk. I then made the mistake of going to the supermarket and actually buying that junk emoticon and then my eating was all downhill from there.

Honestly it wasn't that bad because I've actually been toying with the idea of upping my calorie intake to see if I can get the scale moving again but of course I'd prefer to do that with healthy proteins and whole grains instead of the nutritionally lacking snacks that I binged on yesterday. Anyway as I said it wasn't that bad but it wasn't my ideal day.

Does anybody have this struggle when you're tired? It's like when I'm tired my willpower is a quarter of what it usually is and my cravings for junk are so much more!! I know how being tired affects me though and so I should have done better yesterday but it's in the past now and all I could do was do better today which I did.

Again, I started the day with my 2 Insanity videos and my DH and I went to the gym this evening where I did 44 minutes on the treadmill and 35 minutes of strength training. I also stayed within my calorie range so emoticon

I think making this realization on this journey is one of the most important things we can do!! If you slip-up, don't beat yourself, just do better the next day!! Let's all do better!! emoticon emoticon and emoticon for reading and your support!!

    Sleep affects my eating, and emotion especially affects my eating so it's something to be mindful of. I've been keeping a feelings monitoring journal to help me start identifying what's going on when I'm triggered to eat and then working to establish a healthier course of action.

    When my sleep suffers everything is harder. Tomorrow is going to be a bear of a day. I hope you slept better this weekend.

    oh man the more sore/tired I am the hungrier I am for sure. Almost everything sounds delicious too, even brocolli but I usually go for the junk of course lol. After one of my half marathon trainings I was so hungry I grabbed a jar of peanut butter with a spoon and just went at it....ugh that was crazy. I have been trying to replace snacks with healthier versions.
    Keep pushing forward! I love that picture you put. 2 steps forward, 1 back, 2 forward again that's progress!!!!!!

    We all have struggle days, recognizing it is more than half the battle! I always tell myself to "focus forward" similar to what your meme suggests. Best of luck
