I need 4 extra hours in my day!

April 6, 2010

I feel like no matter how much sleep or what I eat, or don't eat for that matter, I am constantly tired. I have zero motivation to workout. I was doing my 5am yoga all fine and dandy until I woke up one morning with a killer neck cramp and couldn't do a pose that the day before was not only super easy but was one of my favorite one to do. I still did the workout though. The next day though I woke up, worked out and got sick sick sick on the way to work. I didn't even eat breakfast...and that is unusual for me. So I tried yet another morning to work out, and I got sick during yoga and had to quit. You'd think at this point I'd take a break but I tried again the next morning...alarm went off, I felt sick, reset the alarm, went back to sleep.

What on earth is happening to me?

All through high school and undergrad I was a gym rat. Now I can barely get the energy to walk around the block after work. I keep telling myself this is just because I am taking grad classes and teaching at a school that requires me to drive 30 miles every day and be there at 7:10 and stay until 3:20. By the time I get home it is 4pm and if I have class I don't come home until almost 8pm. And since I am the type that has to have 8 hours of sleep or I am a waste of life the next day I have to be in bed by 9pm. That doesn't exactly allow for a lot of daylight free time.

I hope this is all my problem is and once summer comes in a few short weeks I will be able to get back on my workout schedule I use to know and love. I am taking 5 classes during the summer but all but one is online.

Considering I have about 5lbs I want to lose to be at my "happy weight" I have got to figure something out, my khakis are getting a bit tight. I keep hearing a lot of the bloggers talking about doing Weight Watchers, and want to try it but know I need to buy the online thing to go with it.

Oh and does anyone else have this problem...I have a tall skinny husband with an amazing metabolism who can eat what he wants and not suffer from it and I have to live in the same house as him and watch him eat yummy food, and I have zero self control. When I lived alone I only had health food around and no snacks. Easy to be skinny and healthy that way. Not so easy in my current situation. But considering Jeremy isn't going anywhere anytime soon I have got to get some self control!

Sorry guys that is just my workout/food rant. Any good weight loss tips or suggestions? Or any good diets that are just amazing?
