CPAP streak: 7 days.

Last night? I wore it all night long. Took two Benadryl to do it, but the mask stayed on and I slept through the night - one or two times I surfaced as I changed position, but didn't rip the mask off.

That's all for today folks.

  Good for you. I've gone through a series of masks and have now found two that I change between for different reasons. The "in the nose" mask irritates the nasal lining too much after a couple of days that I have to change to the "on the nose" mask for several days and deal with the leakage around the mask as I move during the night, shifting how the mask contacts my face. I also had to change from a single pressure machine to a two pressure machine where I didn't feel like I was fighting to exhale. So it all works for me now. Good luck to you.

CPAP Streak: 6 days

I didn't make it long last night probably 3 hours. I have my doc appointment Wednesday and I'll be asking what to do about the ripping the mask off every time I start to change position. I'm not really awake when I do it, at least I don't remember doing it most times. Maybe a sleep aid? Dunno. We'll see what the expert says. But I keep putting it on night after night and that's the goal - so I'm doing it.

Today my schedule changes and that makes me nervous about my fitness minutes. My dance troupe has been on hiatus this summer and we're back on with biweekly practices starting tonight. Yes, it's trading one form of movement for another - I don't know why I'm nervous about it, but I am. When we were off...I would walk 4-5 x a week. Now we'll be rehearsing 2x a week. Yep, dance is movement, but it's not sustained movement. Typical rehearsals (especially in the early stages of choreography) are start and stop. Once we have the choreo set, we start running it over and over and that's less start and stop.

I guess I'll still aim to walk 2x during the week and see where things go. With work and family, adding in two 2-hour rehearsals eats up a lot of time in the week! Then, there's 1-2 private students a week and you know, laundry, LOL.

I'm excited for troupe to be back at it, and I need to just let go of worrying and enjoy it. It's movement and it counts. If I need to compensate by lengthening my walks a little I could do that, right? right.

See I just needed to work through my process, LOL.

Coworker on vacay this week which means office will be quiet, yay...but also means I'll be working my butt off to keep up. Um, yay?

Have a great week folks!

CPAP Streak - 4 nights

Last night was a better night, made it til 3:30 a.m. before I ripped off the mask.

The last week has been crazy with jodie being down with the shingles, work, etc. I didn't get the exercise that I wanted in, but I made sure to get at least 10 min a day in and that just had to do.

Working my Satuday, but it's pennies in my pocket so no complaint. :)

CPAP Streak: 3 nights.

I doubt I got more than 3 hours on it last night, I could not get comfortable and ripped it off sometime after 3 hours. I don't remember it, think I must have been half asleep. But, I put it on and that's the goal, so it counts.

Wheat: 95% successful. That's the problem with not doing the grocery shopping, sigh. So I ended up eating a tortilla before I really even thought about it.'s all part of the process.

On to the weekend.

CPAP Streak: 2 nights

6+ hours last night, best night so far. Whew.

Wheat free: So far today.

At the camp I was at, I didn't go hog wild by any stretch of the imagination, but I ate things that had wheat. And subsequently felt crappy.

Such a shock.

This week has been a slow slog of getting in the groove and wheat has been here and there again.

So today, no wheat, day 1.


And again and again and again, as long as I need to keep restarting I will.

Yes, yes I know. "Just don't take that first bite".

Yes. I know. I hear you. I understand the logic and wisdom there.

And here I am again.

Over the weekend I ate some wheat and I felt sluggish, exhausted and achy. I dislike those feelings, so I'm reminding myself of why I'm not eating wheat again.

This a.m. I woke up a little bit refreshed. this is a big deal for someone who hasn't had good sleep in so long it's not funny. I decided to use that lil extra "zing" to motivate toward no wheat, which will only make me feel EVEN BETTER.

So, that's today in a nutshell. So far. :)
