Sleep Study

Sunday, February 10, 2013

The last three nights I have been doing a home sleep study. My doctor wanted to rule out sleep apnea. These have been rough nights - I hardly slept. It was very hard since I was hooked up to three different wires. I am glad it is over.

Saturday, my trainer did a fat analysis. I also gave him my questionaire. We will go over things on Wed after my session. I really like him - he is so encouraging. During our group session he had us to the leg press machine. I had previously only pressed 135 lbs., he put 195 pounds on. I looked at him unbelievable -- he said "You can do it" and I DID - for 3 rounds of one minute!

In the afternoon I laid down for a 30 min nap -- I woke up 2 1/2 hours later! Then this afternoon I took a 1 1/2 hour nap. I guess I am catching up on my loss sleep from the sleep study!

Daily Goals: 2/9 & 2/10
1) Blog -- emoticon emoticon
2) Exercise at least 20 minutes. emoticon 65 min; emoticon rest day
3) Eat at least 3 freggies a day emoticon 5/3 servings

    Sorry your sleep study was so annoying. Wish I could give you some of my 14 hours of sleep I got Friday night. Your trainer sounds awesome and those leg presses sounded fun but hard too! Wish I weighed what you pressed! LOL Way to go. Keep up the good work. I hope you get an answer to your sleep issues.

    I did 2 sleep studies, one was a home over night and so easy. There are so many varieties. Hope they get to the bottom of it, whatever it is.

    Hope you can start sleeping better. That was a lot of weight to leg press. I am sure I would have slept better after that.
