WHAT A RELIEF!!!!
I feel relieved! As per the Pulmonologist whom I saw today who is affiliated with my sleep doc, I can only change my sleep time of 10+ years ( 1 a.m.) 15 minutes at a time to slowly bring it down to wherever I want it. (11 30 p.m.) Whew! what a load off of me....my smart DH was already doing it having now brought it down to 12:30 a.m. So, forget the 18 days repetitive action to form good habit of getting in bed on time!! The rest do not matter as much since I can be pretty good with it. Guess what else I found out? He favors my challenging my body to exercise more if I can handle it just like my specialist from Mayo Clinic! I got inspired to try ( while making sure my Oxygen sats are OK and pulse is never over 120 beats and I feel fine) and raise my walking speed on the treadmill to 2.8mph and I succeeded feeling OK at the end of 20 minutes. I did a total of 35 minutes on the treadmill. Also re-started strength training ( thanks to Tarangini's challenge) - of course without any weights for now to go up to 2 lbs. So excited and happy!! Yipppeeee!! Its been one exciting and happy day!! Can't wait to see what I can do tomorrow..........lol.
Thanks for your support and encouragement my dear sparkly sparks! I also apologize for accidentally deleting couple of your comments while trying to go to your page to respond!
Just remember this when you don't feel like working out:
