Been dealing with insomnia for a few days

Monday, November 04, 2013

it happens once or twice a year so what can you do lol. Anyhow, I only did 7289 steps yesterday but that is more than I have been getting before this in a day for steps. I wanted to get near 13,000 by now but I'm not quite there yet. So if I get round 10,000 or more in a day I'll be happy. Today I may get round 7,000 depending but I am doing the treadmill in a little bit which will help me out some. Plus tomorrow or Tuesday I am going to start walking outdoors if the breeze is only gentle or non existent. Plus it getting dark round 530 means I have less time to try and get in the outdoor walking so I have to do it in the morning I do believe or I have to do the march in place or the treadmill, its simple as that!

I ate soup for dinner & I got in all three meals today and 2 snacks. Food wasn't the greatest today but I am trying to get in the 3 meals and 1 snack part. I have fruit salad, vegetables, soup and other easy foods to eat on hand. I am trying to rest so I can get in more sleep when my body decides it wants to behave itself once again. Watching the game online as I type this entry out. (Indy vs. Houston) I don't watch basketball or hockey and baseball is over so I am not going to be watching sports as much which is fine by me. I have other things to do in life this time of the year.

I am thinking of deleting my Live Journal account in the upcoming year because the loud annoying ads, the depressing friends I have on my F-List who post negative every entry is not my idea of positive time on the net. I just need to figure out if I want to keep any entries and save them otherwise I can just delete the account completely. I spend more time here, write my personal entries at Penzu and not having another Journal over there would be quite nice. You can private your entries over there but I keep getting nudges over there and its getting annoying honestly. The only thing I like to do on LJ anymore is read an actors friend updates, look in on the few communities that are positive like Embodiment, A Day in the Life, and participate in Holiday Wishes. I participated a lot in Holiday Wishes for a few years but when people weren't being honest or letting me know they received what I had sent them just as a courtesy then it annoyed me a lot. People ask for things and yet don't have the sense to let you know they received what you sent. I usually don't care either way and the mail service is quite good still but I kinda worry in case I don't hear from someone because I start to think they didn't receive what I had promised. I have joined swaps and exchanges before and others just flake out for the most part and I gave up on that idea after 3 or 4 times of getting stiffed.

Today is going to be an easy rest day from walking, I've just had no energy for the whole bit today and an article I read yesterday said do not try to exercise when you are sleep deprived, point noted. Today can be one of my easy days for the week. The steps counted can be just for extra steps added to the weekly total. Tomorrow I have to get a battery for my FitBit. I'm on a low battery now. I think I am going to readjust my steps goal for this week, and instead of 13,000 I am going to go for 10,500 to make it a little more doable and when I get there this week and adjust up next week from 10,500 to 12,000~

    I think you did great.

    The only social media I spend time at is Sparks. I stay away from Face Book and glad I do.

    Hope you get some sleep tonight.

    It sounds like you are being very sensible and adjusting things to suit your changing circumstances and energy levels, this is something that I need to learn.

    I have never heard of Live Journal, it sounds interesting, but I agree with you, there is not time to keep up with everything, so focus is needed on what you get the most out of.

    Hope you get a good sleep tonight, insomnia is very debilitating. emoticon

    Small steps are just as important, I have had to do sitted exercises all weekend, but today going to try just small steps to see how my ankle copes.
