can't sleep

I'm pretty in tune to my inner clock. I usually require at least six hours of sleep. It is 3:30 am and I've only had about five hours of sleep. I feel somewhat tired. I guess I'll get up and analyze what is bothering me. Yesterday I was able to squeeze in 40 minutes at the weight room. I heard there will be a meeting next Wednesday on how much they are going to charge for the usage of the machines because it is to full all of the time and not everyone can get in that wants to. That fact will interrupt with my usual schedule. Volunteer in the morning, exercise, and then hit the lunch room with a balanced and portion controlled meal, which I have a need for all of that to keep my day in the right direction. I don't want to go back to staying sedentary at home daily in front of the TV with my ever lovin' food in my face. I was just learning to eat sensibly and be moderately active. I did miss my weigh in this past Tuesday because I had an appointment else where. I didn't like that fact either. I don't know why when I have things that I don't agree with, I don't feel anxious, but I am aware It is an unforeseen change. Is this complaining, that I'm never sure of? One thing I am sure of is I need a reminder of something to keep me in line just In case I go on one of my "disappointed" eating binges for my emotional comfort. I'll do a satisfying move for my body today. I think when I arrive home I will turn on the music of my choice and blast it. That simple gesture has been a longtime band aid for my emotions.

Always check with your physician, but this has helped me. Get moving everyday, do at least 30 minutes of moderate intensity exercise. It's the key to improving insulin sensitivity. Add strength-training 3-4 times a week to double the benefits.
