The other night I woke up at 5am to go to the bathroom (sorry TMI) and after that I couldn’t get back to sleep. You know why? I was thinking about how fat I feel and how I have to get back to the gym and work my butt off – literally. It’s that time of year where I can’t bear to wear anything that doesn’t have some form of elastic in it and big sweaters. Baked goods are rampant at the office and comfort food seems to be everywhere. After my bout of I-feel-like-a-fatass insomnia I got to thinking how ridiculous it was that I was losing sleep over this. I mean yes I may have gained a few pounds over the last month but who cares? I know that come January 1st me and 75% of other Victorians will be hitting the gym hard to get rid of the holiday weight. As women we spend so much of our lives worrying about being that pefect 10 that we forget to enjoy the good things – like SLEEP!
Here’s to giving ourselves a little slack, especially during the holiday season. Pass the cookies!
