so, i have been sleeping kinda funny recently. sometimes, i experience "restless leg syndrome," or, at least that is what i think it is. It has not happened for about 4 months or so, but in the last couple nights, it has happened again. i hate it. it keeps me awake when i want to sleep... you would think that since my legs are moving enough during the day, that they would want to stop moving for the 8 hours that i am in bed... sigh.
so, goal #1 for this week: make sure that I am in bed by 10:15 every night, and closing my eyes by 10:30.
I have been eating more and more "primal" recently, and I feel great. I love it, and i feel healthy, and am getting leaner (this weekend, i noticed nice little dimples on my stomach. not fat dimples, but definition dimples... wooT!). however, i have found (especially in this last week), that i am prone to (for lack of a better word) binge eating. thursday was ridiculous. it consisted of thinking about ice cream all day long, until 3pm, when i ate pie and icecream, and it was later followed by brownies and icecream and chocolate covered espresso beans. yes, i did feel a little unwell, and no, i am not in the habit of "regretting anything i eat." i loved it, and i would probably do it again... which is the problem. saturday night/ sunday was better, but not great. so, i am back on the bandwagon today. i made myself a curry-potato lentil soup for lunches this week, which i am pretty excited about. but, i gotta learn to control the binges.
so, that leads to goal #2: no binge eating, and only one cup of coffee a day. if i feel like i want a warm drink in the afternoon, to drink tea. continue to be conscienctious about limiting my sweets intake, and my grains intake.
meanwhile. i am lusting after bikes. i think i have narrowed it down to two that i would really really like to have... now it will depend on the ride, how it feels, and also (of course) if i can logistically afford it. Anyone what to contribute to the fund as a christmas gift?! (ahem. mum? dad?)
