Day 503/ Day 30 of 100/Who needs sleep?

Friday, May 27, 2016

emoticon FIL's heart is looking good! It's a problem just outside the heart that can be taken care of with medication, emoticon We were all so worried! Praise God for FIL's health!

emoticon I didn't work out yesterday. I just had no energy from not sleeping enough. So DH got me to take something last night and I finally got some sleep. I'm still exhausted and want to curl up back in bed with DH, but if I start sleeping in again, it is going to be that much harder to start getting up early again. I'm going to go work out after I finish this blog and my coffee.

emoticon I'm really peeved at my doctor's office, they have not called me back yet and my therapist made it clear that he needed to get back with me right away. Two days it has been. I'm going to call them today. I need that abortive medication (something that causes a manic phase to stop and usually knocks you out for a day or more). What I'm doing is not enough. I have some serious sleep to catch up on and getting 5 hours last night did not fix that. It helped, for sure, but did not fix it. I always think of this song by Bare Naked Ladies when I miss this much sleep:

emoticon I'm sure you know of my love/hate relationship with Juice Plus. I dislike taking all those capsules, but my rep is not getting me the adult gummies till June. *frump* But I have enough of the kids gummies (I seem to be stockpiling them for some reason) that I can take them instead of the capsules, and that leaves me with just taking the vineyard blend (raspberry, bilberry, blueberry, pomegranate, concord grape, black currant, blackberry, elderberry, artichoke and cocoa) in capsule form. I don't have gummies for it ... yet. Once my daughter's are old enough to start getting acne, I'll be ordering more vineyard blend in order to (hopefully) keep their acne at bay too. It's really worked wonders for me. I'm hoping that the gummies will come in early in June. I really dislike taking these huge capsules. Plus the gummies are like candy and keep my sweet tooth at bay as well. Taking them regularly, I don't get sick and neither do the kids. We didn't have the flu shot this last year and did not catch the flu. They did get kinda sick, but nothing like what was going around, the worse of it was the fever.

Oops, I didn't meant to sound like a commercial for the stuff!! I don't sell it, so I'm not trying to sell it to you, I just really enjoy the benefits of it (when I remember to take it regularly) I did add a link to yesterday's blog to a friend's site on Juice Plus+, she started selling it recently.

I think I'm going to go tiptoe through the bedroom and hop back in bed. I'm so tired and I could get a whole hour's worth of sleep if I go back to bed. If that does not work, I'll just hop on the treadmill and get a few miles in before the kids get up!

Hope you all have a fantastic day and remember to get some movement in!! emoticon

    Wonderful news about FIL!!

    Sorry your doctor isn't responsive. What else can you do to light a fire under his rear end?

    Get some sleep! emoticon I have read that is the most important key to managing weight, blood sugar and mood. I am a little short in the sleep department at the moment- but not feeling sleep deprived yet!

    ZZZZZZ- have a great day!
