Sleepless days and stress!
Monday, June 27, 2011
Well I finally did it, I stepped on the scale, and it wasn't good! The weight has jumped back up to 212!!
I have been really bad at watching what I eat and part of it has to do with the fact that I can't sleep and so I get up and eat. There is no one else home during the day (I work 3rd shift) so instead of coming out and talking to someone, I eat, and it is mindless eating, half the time I don't even want it but if its there, I eat it. Afterwards I am upset with myself and so I eat more, but that doesn't make me sleep any better!
Have been stressed about a lot of things so that doesn't help the sleeping either. My almost 8 week old granddaughter was diagnosed with a form of epilepsy and has been hostitialized twice already. The first time she was taken by ambulance, with lights and sirens, since she had quit breathing and her lips had started to turn blue from the local hostitial to a larger one about 2 hours away. The second time my daughter and son-in-law called the larger hospitial and told them what had happened and they were told to bring her up right away to the E.R. Both times she scared the heck out of us all.
Then yesterday my clothes dryer totally quit and isn't worth fixing, and my car seems to think it needs random dash lights to come on and off when ever it pleases, but no one can figure out if there really is a problem with the motor or if there is just a short somewhere.
On Fathers Day my granddaughter was baptized. That was a wonderful day. My son even agreed to be one of her sponsors
. For him that was a big deal, he hates getting up in front of people for any reason.
The gown she wore was the same one I wore and that my daughter wore. I just wanted to share some pictures of her from that day. They make me smile. The last one is of my granddaughter and Dad, I just love the face she is making!
I want to set a good example for her and once I figure out what to do about the not sleeping I think things should get back on track! I have been exercising, and feel rotten on the days I don't!
