A long sleep and a brighter morning!!

Tuesday, July 12, 2011

I was so tired yesterday, all day, and I was in pain and feeling nauseous all day. I would eat and about an hour later I would be feeling hungry and sick again. So goes my days will too little sleep. Not always, but yesterday was particularly bad. I also had a terrible weigh in at the Y during my DPP class. I had been down to 220 on my scale and I was 225 at the Y yesterday. My DPP coach/Dietician reminded me it was less than last month. I still wasn't happy!! But I was so tired, I didn't say too much about it to anyone. I did put a short message in one of my team post...but it wasn't a detailed message like I usually leave for the team members.

So last night I decided to take a nausea pill. I just was feeling so sick and that is what they are given to me for anyway. I was so drowsy then and I slept a little in my chair in the evening. Then I feel asleep in my recliner until about 1 am and went to bed. Where I continued to sleep until 7 am. Wow!! I so needed it. I didn't even put my food for the evening in the nutrition tracker last night. I was so tired!! I usually finish the night I eat...but I figured I would remember what I ate until today.

emoticon I do remember having some dark chocolate last night!! It tasted so good!! I haven't had any in a few days. It is the one treat...besides the twizzlers licorice, that I really enjoy and it satisfies me. The milk chocolate just doesn't satisfy me anymore. So I make sure to have some dark chocolate on hand...and I try to get the 70 % dark cocoa in my candy bars. It has less sugar in it and really does hit the spot!!

emoticon I look in the Sunday paper for dark chocolate that is on sale. Most of the time I can find some on sale at good prices at places I shop. And then I have it on hand. And I don't have to buy it every week, as I don't eat it every day. This keeps me from wanting to eat too much other candy. I never eat the whole bar...just one serving or less. But only if I have the calories left over at the end of the day. I rarely eat it unless it is at night. Just the time when I want something sweet!!

So, today looks sunny and is suppose to be in the 90's here in Billings. At least that is what the weather man said a few days ago. And of course, we are expecting some thunderstorms later. Just goes along with the hot weather!
emoticon emoticon I don't like them...that is from when I grew up in Wisconsin. My Mom was deathly afraid of the storms and we had to get under the pool table during the storms. That is the 3 smallest kids anyway. I found out years later that my older siblings where on the back porch watching the storms!! Not even sure where my Mom spent them.

Well, I am encouraged by the scale again this morning. I knew it had to be better than yesterday!! I did change my ticker back 5 pounds...since at the weigh in that was my weight. Next week I am going to be moving it again!! I am going to continue to lose!!

Oh, I just realized it is Tuesday and I am going to try to go to Yoga again tonight! emoticon And here I thought I wouldn't be exercising today. Guess I was wrong!! The Y is having trouble with their cooling I usually sweat a lot during the yoga class. But it is not big and they have a couple fans running in front of the class. I am so looking forward to going!!

Well, I should get off here and start my day!! ANd is what you make it!!
