Such a Blessing This Morning

Friday, January 13, 2012

Woke up to realize I had slept through the entire night except for a single coughing fit at 12:30, for the first time this week, which of course meant I woke up clear headed instead of a sleep-deprived muddle head.

I was so happy.

I was able to get so much done this morning. The other days these week, 2 hours would fly by in what seemed 10 mins. A couple mornings I even reset the timer every 15 mins per FlyLady, to help me capture or make better use of my time, but it really didn't help. Being sick plus sleep deprived from being unable to breathe was the problem, and a timer wasn't going to fix it.

All of this was caused by me going off of SinuFix, in an effort to conserve it so it wouldn't run out so fast.

I used up alot of SinuFix - 3 and 4 per day all week instead of my well-health maintenance dose of 1 a day - to get back to being healthy. So ironically, I wasted time, money, and SinuFix, by trying to conserve SinuFix.

I am so grateful for last night's sleep. I still have red nose, scratchy throat, damaged vocal cords, and am clearing my throat occasionally, but was so happy this morning when I realized I had slept and for change this morning, I had not waken up half dead.

From now on, SinuFix comes before gasoline, in spending priority.

Our Actions Show Our True Priorities

Thursday, January 12, 2012

What are your priorities? What you DO is your priority.

What are you struggling with? I am struggling with making walking a priority. I did fine from Oct through the week of Dec 13 (super busy week) and have struggled ever since to get back to the daily habit of it.

"Excuses be SHELVED in 20-TWELVE."

Our ACTIONS demonstrate our real priorities.

And when I DO fight my way back to a regular, daily walking habit, I'll remember HOW MUCH HARDER IT IS to go back and start over, than it would have been to make whatever time mgmt sacrifices necessary, to have continued doing it during the week of Dec 13. It's like going back to school: no matter what it is that's going on in your life that makes it look like you HAVE to drop out, DON'T DO IT, because no matter how hard it is stay in, it will be much much harder to go back than it is to stay in.

Your actions demonstrate your true priorities.

My struggle has been with my eating - baby steps - doing a little better.

  I am also having trouble getting back in the swing of things after the holiday feasting. I will keep trying to increase exercise and decrease the treats! Good luck to you!

B1G1F Romaine

Wednesday, January 11, 2012

Found a really good sale at BILO, the sale included red leaf, green leaf, and romaine, buy one get one free, $1.99. Only 99 cents each, not per pound but for the whole head.

First time I went, the romaine was pitiful so I bought one red and one green. Went back last night because the store is near where we meet for Life Group, and the romaine selection had been replenished. I got two romaines.

I have been eating homemade soup everyday due to being sick (I need the hot liquid), and since getting the lettuce I've been eating salad with homemade dressing everyday. YES I have lost weight, already.

I have a bad wracking cough and runny eyes, but am getting better super fast.

We had our first Life Group meeting tonight, 1st one since Dec 13. I took peppermint cake. I didn't have any though, nor did I participate, trying to prevent socially embarassing coughing fits. I am usually not silent but was this time. I left the group 5 or 6 times to go cough outside.

I will sleep sitting up again tonight. I took 3 SinuFix today.
