Frustrating Morning

Monday, December 10, 2012

I just want to vent for a minute. I need a good Monday morning rant! I had a wonderful weekend, but it was indeed void of sleep. I am completely exhausted from lack of sleep. For TWO nights now, I have been up the better part of the night, and when I finally did nod off to sleep, I would wake up consistently, probably every hour. I have hit another wall with weight loss, after a couple of very successful weeks. Anyway, I just want to cry this morning. I couldn't find what I needed, it snowed (which is a good thing and makes me very happy), so we had to leave early, which is difficult when you have overslept due to not sleeping the night before. emoticon I was supposed to pack a lunch...that didn't happen. And, we didn't even get together everything for breakfast that I carefully planned last night. What am I supposed to do if I can't sleep? I can't lose weight, can't get up on time, which leads to total stress, and then I can't function at all. Sorry to whine, but I'm just so frustrated!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I agree lack of sleep affects soooo much! I feel like a new person after getting 9 hours last night! I hope you can find a resolution to the sleep problem and get some good zzz's emoticon

    Lack of sleep is indeed horrible and I am tired of dealing with it too. now I hit the wall only a couple hours after I have gotten up. I make mistake after mistake and simply can't remember anything important! Not very good for my job as more and more people are catching out my errors. I was hoping the sleep challenge would have worked for you :( Maybe you will have to see a Dr. about sleep aids -they will try for the mildest things first. one over the counter treatment is melatonin which my Dr. recommended -it actually did help me get back to sleep when I woke up, but now my pain is too intense and even the heavy narcotics I am on aren't working so I have to simply wait until I get my hip surgery which will likely be a long time. But its really important for you to establish a regular time you will go to bed and never go past it. Sleep will only work if you establish a set pattern -if you are all over the map your body will not get used to any time it must sleep. That is some of my problem -I never get to bed at the same time :(
    If you want a chuckle -did you catch KBRADFORD88's error? She said if you don't sleep you are producing GREMLIN -that just made more roar with laughter as I thought those gremlin movies were hilarious. Better watch were you splash your water ;)
    Its ghrelin she meant and yes, that is bad, makes you want to binge or crave carbs.
    Hope it goes better for you tomorrow,

    Sorry to hear about your crazy start to the week. Hope you could feel a little better after venting to your spark friends!!! I will send some sheep your way to help you fall asleep tonight:) I know they say that if you don't get a good night sleep, it makes the rest of the day so challenging, as you already know. Just remember to do at least one small thing that is good for yourself and your health each and every day. We are not looking for perfection--just progress, no matter how small.

    One thing to remember...if you are not sleeping you produce gremlin...code for want to eat hormones and can stall weight loss. Give yourself a break on days like this. And pack all lunches at night now. Be kind to you! Oh and I got the rant thing down. PS I'll send you the link to join when they open it up for new members. You will only have a week to do it in. Sending love your way...

    I'm sorry, girl. I've been there. Have you tried an over-the-counter sleep aid? Maybe it would help. Or, talk with your doctor to see what he/she recommends. Hope you get some rest soon! emoticon

    Manic Monday!! We all have those days! And I can totally relate on the sleep. I have to get up at 6 am and I didnt go to bed till midnight and then I still woke up a couple of times during the night.

    I hear your whine and can totally commiserate. My sleep is spotty at best, just seems like I can't turn my head off attend of the day. My mind cycles through things that I really have no power over. Sometimes I take a sleep aid, but then feel hung over the next morning, which surprising feels a lot like getting no sleep at all.

    Hope your day perks up. All we can do is keep trying.
