Sick This Week/Finally Getting Some Sleep Help

Friday, January 17, 2020

If I can get feeling better and start working out again and drinking my cold, cold shakes again (too cold already to drink them!!, Yes, probably a fever), and start losing weight; reaching my goal weight this year is totally doable!!! In fact, if I do, I promised my SIL I would go skydiving with her! I want to lose as much as is safely possible and get in better shape by my birthday in April. I'll be seeing my BFF and I want to be in better shape than I was in November, right now I'm about the same. Thank you holidays.

But, once I get feeling better I'm going to work back up to where I was (I know better than to just jump back in after a week of being sick!) and get my eating routine back where it should be (going to try to do that today anyway, I'll just bundle up while I drink my lunch shake!) Plus we are going to make a meat heavy beef stew (got the beef on deep sale) so lots of protein for me. Plus DH is sick to, so he needs it too. I would make posole, but we have all this beef that needs to be used up. Plus, I've been craving a good, hearty, old-fashioned beef stew!

I am finally going to be seeing a sleep specialist! I don't want someone who is going to throw a sleep study at me and give me a c-pap machine, which insurance will then deny after a short while and I'll have to figure out how to return the thing. You have to sleep with the c-pap machine on for x amount of hours per night for insurance to cover it. I don't sleep that much at a time. I might in the time of a whole day (neurologist I saw said for now I have a nap prescription, If I don't get enough sleep, take a nap if I can, till we can get my sleep sorted out). Don't know what the sleep specialist will say, but this guy was one of the best, so for now I'll go with what he said.

I just hope my doggos feel up to taking some naps, because I plan on taking a few today! I got woken at 0930, after struggling with a cough for what seemed like forever, with a dog that really needed to go potty, lol. Glad she woke me instead of going in my room. She wakes me by giving me kisses and trying to bury her head on or under my head or if the covers are up by my head, under my covers, lol.

Well, off to see if I can get another cat nap. I'm so tired! Maybe something really warm to eat will keep me from coughing so much while I try to sleep.


This is from the series Firefly, my favorite show cut off too soon, I love it! Could also be from the later movie called Serenity. Either way, I love it!!

    Wow, I had that cough. It seemed to hang on forever! Praying it doesn't last as long as mine did. If it gets worse please call and get some meds. Mine morphed into an upper respiratory infection. No fun! I hope you can get this all shorted out.

    Oh, gosh. Now I feel like I jinxed you a while back when I said that about guarding your immunity while you're having trouble sleeping. Sleep every chance you get while you're recovering, and of course, hydratehydratehydrate!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
