Can't sleep so excite long hike upcoming

I'm excited and nervous and can't stop thinking... woke up to pee but my brain is like THERE'S SO MUCH STUFF YOU HAVE TO FIGURE OUT AND DO YOU CAN'T SLEEP!!!!! And my body is like shut up brain there's time to figure it out besides SLEEP we need it!

Anyway... next week I'm planning the longest hike I've ever done so far... even when I was in highschool and before all the health crap hit me... it's training for when I do the AT in 2017... and it's supposed to be easy miles... many people do the hike I'm planning in a day... 

We are going to hike ~90 miles in six days... the entire state of Maryland... it's going to be amazing.. my brain is like can't sleep excited come on let's figure out the minutia... 

Sigh!

Hi everyone, new ranger here.  I recently moved over to the Rangers and I've been meaning to stop by but things have been so incredibly hectic lately.  So consider this my belated hello!  I'm super excited to finally have found a guild and I'm eager to get to know you guys.  Seems like a great group from what I've seen.  

 

I hope everyone is killing their challenges this week!

I'm falling off the wagon. I've been doing really good the past 10 weeks and making my work outs and I'm just finding it difficult to convince myself to go to the gym last week and this week. Its not that I don't enjoy working out either. When I get there I have fun, and I love doing my lifts. I just am having a difficult time getting up and going. Don't know what to do. Help.

Kind of depends on what's causing it.

 

Are you stressed or pressed for time in other areas of your life? That could mean you need to restructure your schedule so you have the time and energy to workout.

 

Are you getting enough rest? Proper fuel? If not, those could be affecting your energy levels, too.

 

Are you finding that you are having trouble doing other things you normally enjoy, even though you have the time? Physical energy levels again, or maybe your general mood has dropped some without you noticing it.

 

Do you see any patterns to your reluctance to start? What do you think the root cause is? More info might help us get a better idea of what is going on.

Last week I was getting over being sick, but I literally can't think of an excuse as to why I didn't get out of bed this morning to go to the Gym. I've been going in the morning before work up until I got sick at the Start of this six week challenge. I feel like the root cause is the invention of the snooze button. I was just jumping out of bed, and now today for instance, My alarm went off, and I just decided meh I'm gonna go back to sleep.

You may simply be suffering from "habit disruption." You had a good streak going, but being sick interfered with the maintenance and consolidation phase of habit development.

 

Posting here means you want to get back on track, so use the peer pressure when the alarm goes off tomorrow... We can't be there to drag you out of bed, but we will all be watching to see that you get out there and DO IT! We know how to find your thread... :)

Sorry your having trouble bud it can be tough when things aren't going your way. I recommend trying something different. find an activity to do as a once off like surfing/kayaking/climbing that you have to pay for and book it earlyish in the morning while also paying in advance. it should break the cycle
