To Sleep, Perchance to Be Thin
I've been reading everywhere lately that lack of sleep can cause you to eat more. Well, I'm in trouble :p I haven't had more than 5 hours of sleep in a row (and that's rare, usually it's 2-3) in about 3 years now. So I'm always tired. Which makes me want to graze for 'fuel.' And there's something about waking up exhausted that makes me crave waffles and hot cheesy grits - not fruit and eggs and other healthy stuff. I'm still working on this one. Trying to get as much sleep as I can and in the meantime making myself eat fruit and an egg before I'm allowed to have the 'heavy' stuff - and most of the time, once I'm done with my healthy food, I don't even want the junk. And when I do cave, I just try to adjust my lunch to compensate. Whew. One of these days I'll get some sleep. For now I can just be grateful that I've learned to eat breakfast in the first place instead of running on empty all morning. That was definitely not good for my health.
