I was plugging along, doing well. I had a 6 day fitness streak going but that came to an end yesterday. I haven't been sleeping well all week and it was killing me. Wed & Thu were the worst. I didn't have any energy to do ANYTHING, let alone exercise. I did get on the elliptical for 45 min on Wed, but it took everything out of me.

My sister finally convinced me to give my DR a call yesterday and see what they could do. I know this has to do with menopause. I think I am in it now. I always slept well before and the last few years have been harder. This week was the worst. Nothing was helping:-( Anyway, she gave me a prescription to try, so hopefully, eventually, I will get this worked out and get my energy back. It's SO frustrating. I'm sure losing weight will help my symptom a lot. But I need to be able to sleep or I'm not going to be able to put anything into any wrkts that I do. I never know what kind of night I'm going to have and how I'm going to feel the next day. At this point I wake up every morning feeling lousy and exhausted. I'm so tired of feeling this way. Sleep has always been important for me.

Anyway....I'm a lot more hopeful now that I can turn things around soon and really get moving again. I try to do things on my own and not go to the DR. This time I really needed some help. Wishing everyone some good ZZZ's tonight:-) emoticon

    Oh, how I hope you get the rest you need. I have Lupus, so I know what you mean, by not having the energy to do anything. Baby steps, that is what it takes. I'm rooting for you, because I know you can do it. Thanks for a nice blog, and have a blessed weekend!
