So, I’ve finally realized part of why I’m struggling with my goals right now. I’ve got bad seasonal allergies going on right now. Or maybe a mild cold. I’m not sure which, but my sinuses have declared war on me, which has made it difficult to get a good night’s sleep and to do a lot of exercise. So, yeah. No wonder I’ve been struggling with this. Because, when I’m tired, I am far more likely to eat a lot of high calorie foods in an effort to get more energy. And I struggle a whole lot more with getting my exercises done, because I feel like I’m accomplishing something simply by staying awake.
Really, it’s probably a wonder that I’ve managed to maintain my weight as well as I have.
Obviously, this part is not a simple matter of “willpower” or anything like that. It’s a matter of trying to feel better, so that I can actually follow through on my goals. But things should get a little easier, now that I’ve realized (or admitted) what’s going on – now I can watch out for myself, realize that I’m eating because I’m tired and lethargic, and try to deal with it in a more productive fashion.
Hopefully, though, I’ll be feeling better soon.
