SLEEP – Why Can’t we be Friends???

Today’s 43 targeted the lower abs (one of the hardest areas to work, I think).  I laid on my back with my legs straight up at 90 and feet flexed.  The actual move is small – lift your hips while pushing your feet up to the sky.

I tried to make sure that I wasn’t using my hands to push off – all core.  A simple, quick 43 today!

Then – more Les Mills Combat!!  Combat 45 – another fun, but intense work-out.  I’m pretty addicted to this Combat program!!!  I think they are all great work-outs but also very enjoyable!!

So, why can’t I sleep???

  1. Hot, then cold, oh wait now I’m hot again!!!  Sweating during a work-out is awesome, sweating at night, not so great!
  2. 2-3 trips to the bathroom!  I have always been a huge water drinker – all day long.  I don’t drink different amounts now, my body just handles it differently!
  3. Comfort – there is no single position that I can stay in for more than about an hour.  If I sleep on my back, it hurts.  If I sleep on my right side, my elbow hurts.
  4. My brain won’t shut off!!!  I don’t usually feel stressed about things when I go to bed but during the night I have 1000s of thoughts that run through my head over & over & over again!!

SLEEP – let’s make up and move on!  I don’t think it’s too much to ask!

Do y’all have sleep issues?  What do you do when you can’t sleep? 

(A lot of nights I read for hours – good thing it doesn’t bother Chris – he can sleep through most anything!!)

Happy Wednesday!!!
