Boy, Am I Ever Gonna Sleep Tonight!

Saturday, November 17, 2012

Good Grief! I couldn't sleep last night, and FINALLY drifted off after 1:00 a.m. - Didn't wake up until 8:00 a.m - Really late for me! This time change makes me crazy!

Did a bunch of Saturday stuff - Grocery shopping; Visited with my friend, Tricia; Played with my dogs. I'll most likely mow the lawn if it's dry enough tomorrow. The weather here hit a high of 76 degrees today, and my walk was very pleasant, even in shorts! I just finished my tea and Release Me, and I'm yawning!

Now, for those of your who don't know, I've been using Organic Liaison for the past almost two months and following that program. I will say this much about Organic Liaison - The supplements are awesome! I wish I could afford to eat totally organic - I would most likely shed pounds faster, but even eating primarily regular grocery items, I've lost 15 lbs since I started on September 19th, and I've got so much more energy than I've had in years.

One of my biggest problem areas has been evening snacking, and carb cravings. My well-meaning co-worker keeps a well-stocked candy basket full of chocolate next to the fax machine, and I had at least one piece everyday. The drink supplement, Release Me, kills carb cravings. BAM! It tastes a lot like weak cranberry juice, and I'm now addicted! After about three days, I didn't even have an urge to fight, and haven't had so much as nibble! I have stocked my pantry with some organic chocolate chips, because it's just stupid to not ever have anything like that, but I'll make a batch of organic oatmeal chocolate chip cookies with dried berries and nuts, and have something worth eating!

I also take a green tea supplement called Pagoda, that gives you a natural energy boost and aids in weight loss, and Vitamin D3. At night or after exercise, I have "Release Me," which is an absorbable calcium/magnesium supplement that I put in decaf tea, and "Nightingale," which is an L-Tryptophan based sleep aid. I'm not wild about the taste of this one, so I only take it when I really can't get to sleep, like last night. Since I'm on autoship - I get a month's supply on or about the 19th of each month, and I also get the online membership with autoship. My plan is to stay on autoship until I lose the weight I want to lose, and then only buy what I need, but it's actually cheaper to be on autoship. I earn reward points and get my Pagoda supplement for the cost of shipping, but the products can be purchased on the OL website, or they can be found on Vitacost. I'm just pleased that it's working!

Today was my day for gifts, too! Woohoo!! My friend gave me two throw pillows that I can use in my living room, and this most awesome lava lamp! Remember these?

LOL, now all I need is pot legalized in Florida, and a bean-bag chair to fully recapture my youth! Yeah, right! In my young and hippy days, we tried so hard to get it legalized, but no one could remember where they left the petitions!

And on that note, I'm going to take my Nightingale, watch some TV and have my evening snack, and hopefully drift off to dreamland! emoticon

    Hip...HIP...HORRAY...on the weight loss! You are doing MOST excellent! I'm still determined to check out that website. Right now I'm doing pretty good on my low glycemic regimen. I just added Dr. Oz's recommended African Mango supplements that is supposed to cut cravings and flush out fat. The big claim to fame is up to 28 lbs in 4 weeks of weight loss. We'll see about that! emoticon

    All I can say is..."I've GOT to peel this blub~off! It's only about 4 weeks until my trip to NYC for Christmas with my BFF...and I don't want to go looking like Ms. Porky! emoticon

    PLUS we celebrated a good friend's birthday party last night and the hubs took a video of me dancing...SCARY! emoticon I LOVE to dance...but I looked like Baby Shamu out there...this WILL NOT do! emoticon
