Shut Eye Over Exercise
Happy Tuesday to ya!
I totally skipped my workout this morning. Even though I was in bed by 9:00 onthedot last night, I could not. fall. asleep. My intentions were to be asleep by 9:30 and up by 5:30 for one last 4 miler before this weekend’s FLW 10k.
That, however, did not happen. The last time I looked at the clock it was after 11, so at that point I reached over and turned off my alarm. This girl needs as close to eight hours as possible. Sometimes sleep>working out.
I value sleep more than working out. Sure, I’m a workout-6-days-a-week type of girl, but that’s more realistically five days since one of those mornings I choose sleep. Both sleep and exercise are key components in health.
(Niko has no problem with sleep!)
Besides, if I don’t get adequate sleep, I reach for carbs all day long, my skin looks dull and dry, and I drink way too much coffee. It’s just an unhealthy cycle. Worst case scenario, I’ll workout in the evening (but let’s face, we’ll probably just call it a skip-bo today )
I’ve got a full day of work today, so breakfast was a bit earlier than I typically have it. That’s OK, though, because it was one of my favorites lately!
Raw/paleo cereal! You’d think this would take a while to make because of the grated apple, but it’s really not. It takes me less time to make this than it does a smoothie! Plus it keeps me fuller longer
Well I should probably sign off here. I know I’ve got a day full of meetings and I’m pretty sure there’s an early one on the agenda. Better prep for for it!
Have a lovely Tuesday, friends!
What’s more important to you? Sleep or exercise? I said sleep above, but, if it’s been a while since I’ve worked out, and I really want to get a workout in, I’ll sacrifice sleep if I’m not already sleep deprived.
