Almost two months since I last blogged

Tuesday, May 23, 2017

I don't know why but time has gotten away from me since March. I think its because I'm tired quite a bit. I have trouble sleeping at night so I go to bed late and wake up late. I get 8 hours usually but I would have to wake up in the middle of my sleep cycle to take my son to school and then I would come home and sleep more. Then lunch, then picking him up, then take care of him. My 5 year old is very hands on. He wants me in any room that he is in. Sometimes I just sit in the living room with him and I doze off. LOL.

I've spent the last couple months working on my new eBay store business model. I've gotten more training. Now I need time to get my store built again. I'm also exploring the world of network marketing. I want to see where that can take me. Not to mention I still have to put in time doing my grocery delivery job. There's just not a lot of time.

My husband got a promotion. He's a manager now and he hates it. These last two months have been stressful for him. The department is in a restructuring phase so he's trying to feel it out and see if things get better. He's tired alot and he dreads going to work. Its all the more incentive to work on my income streams to give him the opportunity to consider life with less debt. Maybe he might consider going back to school again. Who knows.

My weight has remained the same since January. I'm down about 25 pounds. I had a good exercise routine going on when my son got sick for a month. I also began to have stomach trouble again and it messes with my entire system. I go to bed bloated and even though I feel better the next day, my next meal just continues the issue. I have diverticulosis, no gallbladder, fructose malabsorption and lactose intolerance and I'm intolerant to other food items as well such as eggs. I can't digest eggs. I can't digest any protein powders or any gluten free flours. I feel like I'm heading toward a feeding tube or something. I have the same symptoms as someone who suffered celiac with exposure except I don't have celiac. I don't have chrons or colitis. But I can't eat anything! I'm still trying to figure this all out.

If I could make room for one habit, it would be exercise again. I've been looking on pinterest and I'm really interested in Boss Body and BBG but I don't want to pay for them so I've been downloading workout ideas from the net. They work better for me than any video because I can go at my own pace. I'm going to start making time for them again.

Anyway I've caught my story up. This summer will be about work and exercise and keeping my 5 year old busy. I'm going to try and make it fun for him and I want to save up for a 4 night stay somewhere for vacation. Here's hoping.

    I have problems sleeping too. No trouble falling asleep but I wake up early. My doctor started having me get off the computer at 7 pm and off the T.V. by 9 and I can fall asleep by 10 now like he wants. I don't get 8 hours very often though.

    I know a lot of people make a lot of money on ebay.

    I think a lot of people liked their jobs better before they went into management. Huge headache and responsibility for not enough money. If you end up being salaried you can even make less money than you did before. It ends up being a 60+ hour week.

    I'm so sorry you are having gut issues again. I will do okay for a while and then be hit again.

    Good luck with your goals!

    Reading your blog encourage me. I ran into an old journal of when I first join back in 2008 and my weight is the same as it is today. A part of me is disappointed cause I haven't lost nothing but then I'm encourage that I have been same weight all these years. Definitely want to do it this time. My 30 year reunion is in a few months. I want to lose weight.
