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
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
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
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
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 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
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
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
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
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
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
settling into my new routine
Second week of school is almost done. I'm trying to keep my exercise routine consistent:
Getting up at 5:30 instead of 6 and doing a mile before work, and
30DS when I get home in the afternoon.
That gives me 45 minutes a day of ... Read more
back in the saddle...sort of
Almost through the first week back at school. It's only Thursday and I'm already exhausted. In the big, open spaces that we are in, there's no sitting, no stopping. I'm running non-stop for six hours. My feet are killing me. This has to bur... Read more
