Runs for Cookies: Wednesday Weigh-In: Week 177


Nicely, that was a brief two weeks!

I wasn’t planning to cease running a blog for thus lengthy, but it surely was very nice to let my laptop accumulate slightly mud during the last two weeks 😉  I would love to do a “catch-up” submit (for the final couple of months, haha), however I would not even know the place to start out. Once I was running a blog day by day, I began struggling to give you issues to put in writing about; whereas I nonetheless do not have something main to put in writing, it feels good to not really feel completely blocked after I sit down to put in writing.

If I used to be to boil down the final two weeks into one predominant level, it is that I do not do effectively with out having a routine (which everyone knows already). A few months in the past, I really managed to get into probably the most regular sleep routine I’ve ever had (and I’ve by no means had a “regular” sleep pattern–insomnia has plagued me for my complete life). I made myself flip off the lights by 10:00 pm, which is unprecedented for me (my thoughts simply does not shut off). At first, it was actually exhausting to go to sleep that early, however as I become old, I choose getting up early over staying up late. So I type of compelled it and finally was getting a full six hours of sleep–10 to 4–almost every single day. And solely waking up a couple of times throughout the evening!

[Another reason I like going to bed early is because it stops me from snacking at night, which is a big issue for me.]

A few weekends in the past, Jerry and I went to a good friend’s home to play some board video games. I used to be slightly frightened it could throw off my sleep, however I do not need to be held hostage within the evenings on the weekend and never exit and do issues! We had numerous enjoyable and it wasn’t even an excellent late evening; I believe we bought dwelling at 11:30 ish.

I used to be conscious, nonetheless, and did not go to sleep till someday after 3:00, after which managed to sleep in till 7:00–but all it took was that someday to mess with my sleep schedule. After that, my physique needed me to remain up late once more. Every week later, simply as I used to be beginning to get again into the sooner routine, we had one other “late” evening on Sunday (just a few days in the past). Jerry and I took the children to go see Invoice Burr in Detroit (a Christmas current). I *beloved* spending time simply the 4 of us and we had numerous enjoyable! Once more, it wasn’t an excellent late evening, however now I am struggling to sleep. Once more.

For these of you that go to mattress early (“early” is completely different for everybody, clearly; in my thoughts, I am considering 9:00-10:00 ish), how do you deal with being out “late” on weekends? Does it mess together with your routine? I am considering that if I proceed to rise up on the similar time every single day, even after a late evening, it’s going to be simpler to fall asleep the following evening. I will strive that subsequent time, as a substitute of making an attempt to sleep in.

Anyway, with my sleep schedule thrown off, it type of threw off all types of different stuff. And on high of it, Jerry is doing a undertaking at work that triggered his schedule to alter barely (just for two weeks, fortunately!).

Though I have never been running a blog, I have been holding busy engaged on initiatives round the home (and some initiatives for different folks). Oh, and spring cleansing! We have had a few beautiful, heat days recently–I like to open up the home windows, crank up some music, and spring clear/set up. Cleansing looks like much less of a chore on a pleasant day with the home windows open. My home was so clear yesterday; a clear home at all times places me in temper.

So far as my consuming for the final couple of weeks, I did okay. Not nice, as a result of late nights at all times make me snack; for meals, although, I did fairly good. I guessed it balanced out effectively sufficient, as a result of my weight was just about the identical because it was two weeks in the past.

I used to be at 143.2, down from 143.6; nonetheless about 10 kilos greater than I would like, however so long as I am not gaining, I am not complaining 😉

For this upcoming week, my predominant focus goes to be engaged on going to mattress earlier (and subsequently, not snacking). Certainly one of Dr. Greger’s 21 Tweaks [for weight loss] suggests not snacking after 7:00 pm–and I’ve observed it makes a giant distinction in my weight after I’m following that guideline. The final couple of instances my weight dipped into the 120’s was after I stopped snacking at evening (or I had a bit of fruit or just a few dates or prunes or one thing like that).

I additionally need to write extra incessantly. On the very least, I need to do Friday Evening Photographs as a result of that is at all times been type of a journal for me–recapping my week–and I like having that. I have never finished one in a very long time so I will simply have to select and select what to share, however after that, I would like to return to doing it weekly!
