Is perhaps my most insidious problem that I deal with every day.
3-4 hours of sleep daily.
Forgetfulness. Club business that will one day get me in hot water.
Increased hunger due to ghrelin. Urge to snack on salty snacks.
Loss of 11% IQ (I can ill afford to lose :P)
Clumsiness due to not being alert. (A knife dropped narrowly missing my foot -2nd time)
Low tolerance for adversity.
Impatience. Will not suffer fools gladly!!
Almost falling asleep in my scooter and narrowly missing ramming the curb.
Coming close to falling asleep at the bridge table on many an occasion.
Mental skills noticeably diminished from what they once were.
Been going on so long I can't even remember when it started!!
Making frequent mistakes and typing near gibberish at times and when I review it can't believe I wrote it!
Inability to rest in bed for long as the back pain ramps up. Tried pillows under the knees, everything -I have more pillows then bed :P.
I have no trouble falling asleep, its the constant wake ups that are the problem
Due to pain.
Uncontrolled for so long its mostly a background noise to me.
Allergic reaction to one of the better pain control drugs didn't help.
Not allowed sleep medications because of interaction with stuff I am already on.
Spark Radio was talking about this topic -its a huge problem that lots of people suffer from.
Another error -I clicked on write a blog by mistake -I meant to hit the Nutrition Feedback button that was next to it :PP.
A teaser photo from my trip -our first stop was at the Mountie's training grounds and historical museum -this was the mascot that greeted us at the entrance:
My soup tonight was out of this world awesome -pureed veggies with quinoa -my favorite beet being one of them, a find from the Farmer's Market. I don't have soup because I don't like store bought cans and I am not able to make them like my friend Watermellen. And also I tend to make a mess -there were beet red splashes all over me, the microwave and the kitchen counter by the time I was done :P
Enjoyed my Boxercise class again this morning, its really pushing me to my absolute limits. I managed a 45 minute step class this evening, but just barely. My favorite instructor is on tomorrow night with his boxercise class and step class back to back. I normally would take both, but not sure I can handle it as my fitness is still not where it used to be last year :( Oh how I miss those days of long ago where I could exercise pain free. I admit I was able to handle it better when I had drugs that worked and controlled my pain. But now I no longer have that crutch and just have to suck it up and go for it. The other problem is there is too many class choices and I am finding my favorites are conflicting :( I tried urban polling which I was wanting to learn the correct technique to use it on the street, but found the class not challenging to my level of fitness. And its opposite of Zumba. *sigh* Too many fall classes between the two facilities I go to. I need to be in two places at once!!
Thanks for stopping by my 'mistake'
Have a Wonderful Wednesday!
