Day 227, 228, 229

Today is my weigh in day, but it isn't for another few hours. I was going to save this bulk update for tonight, but I will just make my Day 230 update then. I need to talk about how this week is going.

Bad. My food is pretty good, but my exercise is down, though I went to the gym twice this week. I have not slept since Wednesday night. Thursday was karaoke. I went home after and went to bed. I fell asleep and 2 hours later I woke up and could not go back to sleep. This is turning into a pattern, and it isn't for lack of being tired. I haven't had this much trouble sleeping since way before I got married. Friday I had a lot of cooking to do for a function for that convention I help run. Then tonight (Saturday) was the function/party and I was on my feet for a bunch of it. I should be dead tired right? Yes, I am, but I cant seem to hit the magic button that turns my brain off for the night. I have weigh in and grocery shopping today and I am so non-functional that I'm useless at the moment. I also have a date planned with my husband that I may postpone.

I want to tell you all about how the party's theme was Deep Frying, and how I managed to avoid most of the bad foods, and how different I would have handled the whole thing a year ago, but I cant seem to get the words to come out right today. I'm just tired.

Anyway, please wish me luck energy for weigh in and my day. I need the boost!

I am a chronic insomniac. I know how it feels being more tired than ever and still no sleep. Or simply not enough of it. I really hope you'll be able to sleep normally soon and this nightmare will be over.
Good Luck *hugs*

The best thing I found that works for me every single time when I have that active mind while needing sleep, is listening to relaxing sounds (like the nature sounds) or, I have a guided imagery DVD.

The background sound is at the beach, with the soft sounds of the ocean coming in and out, and a smooth voice guiding you along. Works really fast!

I hate when bouts of insomnia become chronic. Hopefully your spurt ends soon!

There's nothing worse than not being able to sleep. I often have so much on my mind and sometimes I feel that I can't put myself to sleep. I find a simple glass of tea will work sometimes.

I hope your bout is over soon.
