I’m having trouble sleeping. And something is up with my legs… I can’t sit still. I feel like I need to stretch them–they feel tingly and the muscles feel strange–I stop and stretch them, but I’m too tired to exercise.
First of all, I’m beat by 8:30 at night, then I’m wide awake at the first thing that wakes me at 3 am… if I give in and get up, I’m tired again by 8 am. If I try and go back to sleep, I end up falling asleep finally at 6 am and can’t get up at 7 (which I really should do to get started on my work)… or I’m still tired if I give in and sleep to 8:30. I can’t win.
I need to stay awake. I likely need to exercise. I’m afraid to try the elliptical–I have this feeling that I am going to trip on it and hurt myself, my legs don’t feel right. Wow, what a cop out right? I feel fat and tired. I made good food choices today (okay, one cheat–hot chocolate with 2% milk and chocolate syrup). I hate it that I did that… would have otherwise been a good day… I’m going to force myself to stay awake tonight until 11 pm.
