Memorial Day: Food, Fruit, and Family!

The best thing about a long weekend? It's already Tuesday! Know how else I know it's Tuesday? I'm exhausted. I still can't sleep, nothing is helping, I'm going to lose it. I'm so tired of being tired, and I'm so tired of complaining about being tired but gosh is it miserable. Not only am I going through my days feeling like a zombie, but it makes it so hard to get motivated to do anything besides try to take a nap. I've been getting to the gym as much as I can but I know when I have a bad night my workout the next day is not going to be the best. ANNND has anyone noticed what happens to your weight when you don't sleep? I hardly ever weigh myself but last week I happened to weigh myself one morning and then again the next when I hadn't slept well and it went up 3 pounds- how nuts is that. Just goes to show exactly how important sleep is, and how unimportant the scale is :) 


Despite being tired I did have a great Memorial Day yesterday! We headed over to my parents house for a BBQ and pool day- although Bryan and I kind of forgot the pool part and didn't bring our suits which was a big mistake because it was HOT. I think we're getting close to triple digits here in Scottsdale this week, I don't know if I'm ready for it. And let me tell you, nothing is better on a hot day than a huge bowl of fruit and I took full advantage of it. Then, after eating my weight in fruit I had carne asada, chicken, and a grilled serrano pepper-- mmmm so good! 


Charley had a blast yesterday too, besides getting to eat way too much carne asada she absolutely loves the pool. All 3 of us came home last night and crashed on the couch- and there may or may not have been some Coconut Arctic Zero consumed. That stuff is just way too good! 

I'm going to do my best to get a few new workouts up for you guys this week-- is there anything in particular you'd like to see or any body part you need a new workout for?

  1. Hey little B! I truly hope you get a good night's sleep soon - I had insomnia for a long time and it was awful so I know what you are going through. :( I just wanted to know - what is Coconut Arctic Zero? Also, are there stores that carry MRM products or is it just online? Thanks so much! Love your posts!

  4. Doctor said I have to strengthen the inside muscle of my thigh (Vastus Medialis). He says it is often neglected (true in my case) which causes knee pain..(also true in my case.) Any suggestions for exercises to strengthen the VM?

  5. Have your thyroid checked and adrenals. I have bad nights too and lack of sleep made me gain 10 pounds.

  6. For all you know, you gained muscle! But really, the scale sucks. Numbers seriously mess with my head, so I don't have one anymore! I think the nights that I don't sleep is when I'm hell bent on trying to sleep. Now I just get up and read then my body starts to let me know when I can doze again. Also, spreading yourself thin like butter (too much to do, too little time)...adds stress to your life and hurts your sleep. Chill a little! Delegate more. Ultimately, we are our own drill sergeants and we don't have to be.
