Not Quite Jack Nicholson, but I'm BAAAck!

Tuesday, November 09, 2010

Just a quick note for you who may have been concerned by my dip in motivation and positivity....I'm back!

The reason? I slept yesterday for the first time in close to a month for more than 2 hours in a night. In fact I slept for 18 out of the last 24 hours! I feel like a different person...Did a workout this morning. Now am baking some oatmeal applesauce muffins in my new muffin pan I've been dying to use.

The future is in God's hands...and I will leave it there. He'll let me know when it's time to think about it...But for now, it's onward and upward.
Thanks Sparkies for all your sympathy and also for the encouragement to pick myself up and start again.

    Sleep is so very important. When deprived of sleep, people in a recent study developed fibromyalgia. I'm SO glad you were able to get 18 hours of the stuff. Makes all the difference.

    Also, an inspirational saying I got from SP said "We either make ourselves miserable, or we make ourselves strong. The amount of work is the same." And, I believe we actually feel better when we feel better.

    Hugs, Nancy

    That's wonderful - glad to hear that you finally got some sleep. It's amazing how healing a good night's sleep is for our bodies. Hope the good nights continue for you!

    Wow, great sleep! Gotta grab it when you can. I am turning in "early" at least it is early for me. Take care, spark friend!

    I am so glad you got some sleep finally. I have been getting so little for so long I don't even remember when it started. I have done everything they suggest doing too, but nothing works. I hope this trend continues for you..
    I love the muffins Mom always bakes, usually very healthy with what ever she has on hand so they are always different. I don't cook myself. Enjoy them!
    Hope you have a good evening!

    it's a Spark Recipe. When I searched "muffins" it was the first one to pop up on the list. Very good. My daughter gives her two thumbs up with two muffins down!
