My alter ego, Miss Crankypants, has taken control of the keyboard

Friday, October 04, 2013

I am still recovering from a cold and from my month-long breakdown of healthy habits. I did not sleep well last night--I probably should have taken the NyQuil tablets that afforded me two glorious nights of sleep earlier this week, but I am not a pharmaceuticals fan and I am reluctant to use chemicals to support a natural process like sleep, which means that I deal with chronic insomnia. What's wrong with this picture?
Note to self--no more birthday weeks that turn into a month. It is not worth the discomfort of getting back on track. Just four short weeks ago, I actually felt good. I enjoyed my healthy, sugar-free, programmed eating and consistent exercise habits. Now I feel awful, and I believe that the poor habits left me susceptible to this rotten cold. I have also regained three-ish pounds, when I was only 1.5 pounds away from my ultimate goal. This is distressing.
Thank you, Miss Crankypants. That will do. Stop b!+@#ing, start changing.

    I had a really bad cold or something last week - pre birthday! and on the upside it helped me knock out the chocolate. Last night was my first in days without Nyquil and I had the weirdest dreams.
    You are back on track and feel better

    Hi - I do not think your Cranky , period . Yes , Birthdays tend to be disruptive . But its seems to me that you are a Vivacious Beautiful Woman and you enjoy your life. Everyone gets colds emoticon - I do not like to pollute my body either , so I understand , sleep is essential. Trust me I know I had a Heat Stroke in late July early August and still did not slow down , finally the doctor put a kibosh on my activities , in order for me heal. I am finally back on track - just take it easy and NO GUILT - let go and move forward! Hugs K emoticon
