Had to take a little break while I got my sleep game right!  But I stayed on my diet, so I can climb right back on the exercise train with no issues.

had some decent sleeps over night, but also some huge naps during the past few days that have made all the difference! Finally starting to feel balanced again

I am not taking Xmas off work, but the office will be so quiet, that I consider it sort of a “work deload”. Lightweight baby. Answer emails when I feel like it, work out when I feel like it, have naps when I feel like it. Slow time is in effect all next week.

Last day with the trainer for a little while – she takes off for Xmas vacation… and I remain in the weight pit grinding it out on my own for a bit
