Just Another Manic Monday

Monday, August 21, 2017

Still can't work out. I got 2.5 hours of sleep last night. I was telling DH I could not stay up late with him last night because between 9 and 12 is my best sleep. Well, last night it was my only sleep and I stayed up a little late so I didn't get the full 3 hours. Bummer. A lot of it was because of my cough, so glad I'm off to see the allergist in a few!! I hope he finds what it is, I personally don't think it's allergies, but now I'm hoping it is so I can find some relief! Between my insomnia and this cough, I've had enough!

I messaged my psychiatrist about how much sleep I need to get at night before I work out. I got 4 hours the other day and worked out, but getting as little as I did last night and the night before I did not work out. I want to be able to work out, but I don't want to overdo it and mess with whatever is going on with my system.

I've been having to make myself eat, a change for me. I usually eat too much and now it's like, it's lunch time? Crap. Do I have to eat? DH has started keeping an eye on me after I went a few days going wondering if I ate at all or not? I wasn't hungry, no one is home to remind me to eat, we don't have veggies in the house right now (will after payday on Tuesday!) and that is the main thing I've been able to get down without feeling sick to my stomach afterwards. I think it is from not getting enough sleep and exercise. But who knows.

I'm actually surprised that I'm not as sleepy as I think I should be after getting as little sleep as I did. I'm wide awake and just a little tired. I usually get more tired when I drive, so going to the allergist should be a challenge. I'm going to leave early and either grab a chai or a latte on the way.

Well, I'm off to the allergists! Wish me luck, that they find something. Otherwise we are back to square one.

Hugs my friends, and hope you have a great time watching the eclipse!! Just remember your glasses!! I will be hiding in the house, I have no desire to go blind, so I'm not going to risk it! Please pray for all the kids who will be watching that none of their glasses are forgotten or slip off.

Have a great day!! emoticon

    Maybe yoga or something gentle? I lost 30lbs before I really started exercising. I wouldn't care if I couldn't do it. Its not nessasary right now.
