emoticon Today, four years ago, I got the call from my Mom's boyfriend that my Mom had passed on. She was my best friend. We literally talked every day. But hopefully she is in a better place. It's a hard day to be sure. I miss her everyday. But I try to keep my mind focused on the good times we had together, all the crazy times, fun times, silly times, loving times. She was the most positive person I know, the glas was always half full. I miss her.

emoticon I overslept again today. This sleeping aid is making it harder to wake up early. I have not woken up early once since taking it. I get sleep, sure, but I'm not waking up early enough to work out. And it takes me a while to wake up. Seriously. I need my sleep for sure, but I need to wake up in time to work out too. Measuring the pros and cons and we'll see whether or not I continue to take it. If I do, I've got to change my dinner habits to eating earlier, I'm supposed to take it on an empty stomach. Must finish eating earlier.

emoticon Tried the french press again today. Bleh. It's just way too silty for me. I like my coffee smooth and silt free. Means I need to go pick some up. And I have to go take my heart monitor back to the cardiologist. And go grocery shopping. I need more coffee.

emoticon Going to have to work out when I get home. I have a ton to do today, I should be able to work out right after lunch time, so lunch, quiet time, workout.

emoticon I have not been too great on food, I let DH talk me into Chinese, and the next day we had Subway. The Subway was pretty healthy, I even had it on wheat bread, but I'd feel better with no bread. I'm getting back on track today and am going to stay on track. No more getting distracted! If DH decides to get take out again, I'm not having any. I'll eat my broccoli and be happy because I'll be healthy. One week and two days till I find out the results from my tests.

    Can't blame it on anyone if you eat poorly. You are the one that is feeding yourself. Next time hubby wants to go Chinese, put your foot down and tell him you want to be healthy for your children and go somewhere where you can get a great salad.

    Maybe you and the girls could do something to celebrate your mom. Share with them your wonderful memories of her. That way her spirit lives on through your love to your girls. emoticon

    It may just take your body a month or two to adjust to the new sleep medication. Eventually, you'll most likely start felling less drowsy in the mornings. emoticon

    Don't be to hard on yourself right now. You have alot going on medically and emotionally. Dieting and exercise are almost full time jobs emoticon

    Plus, I know homeschooling can be an organized mess sometimes! emoticon
