I am spent. I am so tired my bones hurt. Too bad my exhaustion is not from a blood pumping workout. I can't sleep. The Insomnia Fairy has come to visit again and I can't seem to get rid of her. She has come 3 times this week and thinks that 2 AM is a prime time to wake me up.
I am not sure why I am laying awake during the night. I have been cutting my caffeine intake down. I don't feel stressed out even though I have a lot going on right now. Maybe it is anxiety about my son starting kindergarten and how our routine is being given a rude awakening. Whatever the issue, I don't know why it is bothering me enough to be awake at all hours of the night. I even took 2 Tylenol PM last night and it didn't help at all. Tonight I am trying wine...2 glasses of wine usually knocks me out. I think the groundhog and Abe Lincoln are missing me (what was that commercial????)
The Push-up and Ab Challenges are on hold at this time. I just cannot add anything else to my plate at the moment. I need these challenges, but they will have to wait. In fact, I really haven't done anything this week due to lack of sleep and needy children. Tomorrow is when I see "Sarge" aka Staci and she will make me walk at lunch. I will bring clothes this time.
On a great note, I found out that I can take swimming lessons at my work gym that I belong to for a fraction of what it was going to cost me doing it through a community education program. I am signing up tomorrow when I get into the office. I hope the space is still open. The class starts on September 7th and runs for 8 weeks. It is an intermediate class that focuses on stroke refinement. I am very excited because I have been wanting to swim as a form of cross training. I don't have the breathing down so I look like a tool in the water. I guess I better start shopping for a swimsuit and goggles.
I don't know if this post is making any sense. I am seeing double at this point and I am going to try to get my Zzzzzzzzs. I have some serious catching up to do on my blog stalking. It will help me rebuild my motivation.
