Ten days of exercise, lost one pound. Just one. And it might not even be that much; I fluctuate a bit, especially during the more hormone-driven parts of the month. My muscles aren't aching any more, so I switched from 5-lb weights to 8 pound... Read more

Back again...and again and again

Thursday, December 25, 2014      0 comments

I've been MIA on SP since the end of July. I keep giving up. It's a bad pattern I keep falling into. I get discouraged really easily, and, due to the hypothyroid thing, I also get fatigued really easily. I go through phases where I'm so tire... Read more

Still alternating days of strength and cardio, 50 minute sessions each. Tracking everything, trying to stay healthy. Lost a couple of pounds the first week, gained it right back. Discouraged, depressed, and tired.... Read more

Thrown off by Mother Nature

Saturday, July 05, 2014      1 comments

So I had jumped back in to the fitness thing with both feet. I was doing well, counting calories, drinking water, staying consistent. Then Monday happened. The Dude was outside barbecuing turkey brats, and we were getting ready to sit dow... Read more

Day 5

Thursday, June 26, 2014      0 comments

I have exercised every day so far this week, alternating weights and cardio. The scale says I lost two pounds, but I'm suspecting that it might just be water...I'm trying to remember my 8 glasses a day, and my kidneys seem to be in overdrive. ... Read more

Back in the saddle

Sunday, June 22, 2014      1 comments

I fell off the healthy lifestyle wagon last October. I haven't exercised, tracked my nutrition, or stepped on a scale in almost a year. Why? Medication issues, job stress, and laziness. I've been overloaded and depressed, and the scale wasn'... Read more

bits of progress

Tuesday, October 22, 2013      3 comments

I kind of dropped off the SP radar for a bit. Work was getting hectic, and my fatigue level has gone a little crazy. I have been taking half the trazodone every night, and it seems to be working so far. I'm still having trouble sleeping, but ... Read more

still adjusting

Monday, September 30, 2013      0 comments

Still on the fence about my situation lately. I was feeling really unwell Friday and Saturday: queasy, faint, lethargic. Saturday night I decided to do half a pill instead of a whole one. Now I'm less nauseated and tired, but either way, it's... Read more

Okay, the sleep situation is improving. Not awesome, but last night was alright. Very groggy in the mornings. Headachy. Also not digging the fact that the traz makes my nose swell shut when it kicks in. That's improving a bit, too, but I am... Read more

as I feared--the return of insomnia

Monday, September 23, 2013      2 comments

Day three of the traz. What a disaster. I was in an unpleasant fatigue-y fog all day. Overwhelmingly tired...until the moment I went to bed. Then I was wide awake, brain racing, getting panicky about not being able to sleep. I've been so us... Read more

Day two

Sunday, September 22, 2013      1 comments

I'm dragging. I think I had about five or six hours of sleep, although it didn't really feel restful. Woke up okay, but I am really really tired and unmotivated today. Foggy. I'm also having low blood sugar shakes, which hasn't happened sinc... Read more

first day

Saturday, September 21, 2013      2 comments

Okay...first day without the Remeron. I took my first dose of trazodone last night. Slept kind of fitfully, but I did sleep. Side effects: slight headache after I took it, and when I went to bed, my nasal passages swelled shut. Un pleasant.... Read more

I bought a pedometer. I have been coming home from work very tired, with sore feet. I was suspecting that working in a large warehouse involved more walking than a usual up-and-down-the -aisles in a classroom. So, this morning, I put on the p... Read more

at the doc

Tuesday, September 17, 2013      1 comments

So I drove out and saw my doctor on Monday. He has given me a two-month trial prescription of trazodone (50mg), and also a referral to a psychiatrist that specializes in sleep disorders. I haven't picked up the referral yet; the office called ... Read more

throwing in the towel

Thursday, September 12, 2013      3 comments

I am officially giving up. Since I was a kid, I have struggled with insomnia. It would take me a couple of hours just to fall asleep. And once I finally did, I would wake up pretty much every hour on the hour. This has been going on for m... Read more
