Life is busy..tons of exciting things going on..and last night...I decided to play a little sand volleyball!
For those of you that read often...you know that I played sand volleyball for the 1st time in the last month or so...so last night was my 2nd time and again, I LOVED IT.
It is good solid workout and fun...I lose track of time and am always tired when we finish...but strangely energized...ready for the next time.
I have learned through this process that I have to keep my physical activity interesting...mix it up a bit and not let my body get bored so to speak...
As I said last night, I am a lot more confident that I can push my body harder after my time in Cali. I just have to make sure that I continue to work on my old friend BALANCE!!
It has been a while since Balance and I went head to head...It makes sense that we would be battling these days...as I am extremely busy. However, part of that challenge for me is sleeping.
I bet I see an article a day on social media, news channels,etc...about how sleep and weight loss have a direct connection...about how not getting enough rest can lead to more difficult weight loss.
Goodness I don't need any extra obstacles...However, I have not been sleeping much...working on 3 hours today! I have been struggling with sleep for the last several days...just so much on my mind and so much to do that the moment I settle in to unwind...my brain says..."OH Wait...YOU have way too much to do to sleep...Here I have a list"!!! Then it is off to the races...the brain spews item after item...until I am AWAKE!!!
Even last night... working all day...trying to squeeze event work in at lunch..going to the Dr AND after playing 2 hours of volleyball in the sand...sweating like a piggy....covered in sand..I get home, shower start to unwind and the BAM!!! HELLO BRAIN!!!
So after last night's workout...my body needs a break...so I am going to do my best to get some rest tonight. Pray for peaceful thoughts and again...ask God to guide me in the direction I need to be going...Seeking Balance...Seeking Peace...Seeking Calm....AND...Seeking Sleep!
Here are few "sandy" pictures...I am LOVING beach volleyball!! If I were only a bit taller...thinner, faster and younger...LOL!!!
