Still tired...

Tuesday, March 21, 2017

I laid down on the couch last night at 630 and fell asleep. My parents called a little before 800, my daughter answered the phone. I got up and went to bed. My dog wanted to bark up a storm later last night. I think the people next to us where outside and she could hear them. I ended up putting the radio on in the living room and she calmed down quite a bit. I was awake about 430 but plan on going home at 230 and taking a nap!!

I made my stepbet goal yesterday again. We lost more people so we are down to 715. They are dropping like flies! Today I'm going for my stretch goal of 10,188 steps. I took my dog for a walk yesterday which helped with steps. I could have made my stretch goal but I am wore out.

I made a really good Mediterranean quinoa salad last night. I'm trying to use up stuff that I have sitting around. I have 25 lbs of dried chick peas if anyone has a good recipe for those! I need to look on pintrest again. I find myself going more for the veggies the past few weeks. I love fresh baked bread but it makes me bloated. I weighed in this morning and I still have about 6 lbs to lose in the next few weeks to get my money back on the diet bet. I really need to step it up!!

I only had one glass of wine last night. Partly because my box was empty but one is better than three! Now I just have to stay out of the liquor store tonight after work. It shouldn't be too hard, I have mineral water at home and I will have my kid bring home the money from the shop after she is done with work.

I think a lot of my tiredness is due to stress. I'm trying to make ends meet and in January, I accidently paid my rent twice, which created a lot of over draft fees in my bank account. I'm trying not to be so hard on myself but those suckers add up!! I'm slowly getting back on my feet again. When I bought my coffee shop I was living with my husband. He was drunk one night and kicked my daughter and I out, I haven't went back. I have a nice place to live but it doesn't come without sacrifices. I'm not complaining, I think I'm just getting overloaded.

    Good job on making a break from abusive relationship. Next time you go to the Doctor, make sure to have your ferritin checked. Low ferritin can cause fatigue and confusion. Google it.
