I'm don't know what I did differently last night, but I barely slept at all. I know one part, I'd start to fall asleep and I'd snore... omg would I snore! I think I was trying to imitate a tractor in a log pulling contest, good grief! So I would wake myself right up and by the time DH came to bed I was awake. Then, there is a boat storage place on the other side of our back yard, some guy decided to get his boat at midnight and apparently that takes a lot of engine revving and pointing his lights right at our house. *frump* So I had to sleep on the bean bag so I would be propped up and not snore. They need to get that sleep study ordered, I've never snored this bad before!!

I am sure losing weight will help, so I have to get on the ball with that - but first, reading LITTLEGUYSMOM1 blog this morning I realized I'm missing one key ingredient for success. I have not sought God's Will or Blessing in this endeavour. I can't succeed without that. I need His strength to lean on when the food is too tempting and I'm too tired to fight a craving. I need his will to be with me in order to succeed. So I'm going to take a few days and pray and ask for God's blessing on my weight loss journey. I'm still going to workout and everything, but I'm going to pray before I do that God would bless my meager attempts to restore the body He gave me.

I dreamed I had a cat last night. The cat was given to me as part of my weight loss journey. I was picked out, along with 9 other people who were obese and we were given baskets with logos on them (mine had a SP logo) and lots of stuff inside. One of the things inside mine were weight loss marble jars. I think this morning I'm going to go to the Dollar Tree and pick up some glass 'marbles' or those pretty decorative stones to do just that. Anyway, right beside this jar (I don't remember what else was in it) was this beautiful overweight black cat, that was the most cuddly, loving cat you have ever met! But the whole thing was on weight loss ideas and things, like the marble jar, but I don't know where the cat came in. Neato dream.

The pool is finally open, yay! I actually don't like going to the pool very much at all. But this time I'm going to get in and run in place or something to get extra exercise in. I'm very much tired today and would rather just push with the things I have to do, but I think the kids would shoot me since I told them we could go to the pool today and they are all excited.

Now to make my to do list and pray for some energy, I'm too tired from last night!

Hope you all have a great Thirsty Thursday and don't forget to drink your water!!

    Sounds like you have sleep apnea. The sleep study will show it for sure. Don't you hate it when people think of no one but themselves. No need of making noise like that at night!
    Yes, do include God in your plan. He wants only the best for you so be sure to put Him in charge. Wishing you the best!

    Sounds like LITTLEGUYSMOM1's blog was a blessing! Mentioning it may turn out to be a blessing to others.

    Enjoy the pool! I have Zumba class and drum fit tonight. If I have anything left over (energy) I will hit the pool too!

    Stay well. I know that I sleep so much better now that I have a CPAP machine. I had a BIL die from apnea, and that scared me into taking action. Hope you get help soon!

    HUG and enjoy the pool!
