Usually don't sleep too great on Sundays. Slept a little better this time around though, thanks to OTC sleep aid.

I got 9 hours of sleep last night. i turned off the TV and switched to a good book. I did not eat past 6 pm and felt as though I could have gone to bed at 7 instead but knew that i would get up too early tomorrow. I went to bed about 2am last night and slept til after 11.

Most of my problems sleeping is the tintinitis that I have, I hear a noise in my ears that is getting louder lately: it sounds like a computer fan right next to both ears and the noise usually wakes me up several times a night...So last night, I got myself more tired so that I did not have the energy to wake up early.

So eliminating over-stimulation before bedtime seems to work for me and to not eat too late. I sometimes play a CD with calming or relaxing music.

No sleep meds, been trying to keep the same schedule and I slept for about 5 hrs (woke up to toss/turn twice but was able to fall back to sleep). Thankfully this came after 12 hour shifts for the past two days. I was able to get up feeling rested and work out then run a couple of errands.

One day at a time!

My excuses not to exercise is my fibromyalgia chronic pain and flare-ups. Last night because of pain level 7 I couldn't get to sleep until after 3 am. then I woke up at 6 am. still level 7 with aching all over so badly that I couldn't find a comfortable position to go back to sleep in. I got myself some breakfast and then began my trigger massage therapy and I followed that up by doing gentle stretches in bed until I felt I was relaxed enough to try going back to sleep again. Husband is away all day so i'm going to try to get my 8 hrs of sleep now and hopefully after a good rest I will feel more like going and trying my treadmill routine around 1 pm. On mornings like this I have to plan a strategy that will still allow me to continue some normal activities that include my exercising so by noon If I still don't feel I will be able to do treadmill program I will put on one of Coach Nichols 10 min programs and do that instead, Some days all I can manage is the massaging and gentle stretching. I've lived with this long enough to know and understand my limitations and so have also learned to only do as much as my body will accept because it if try to push too much I end up becoming more chronic discomfort and can trigger a flare-up, if i judge inaccurately. With good sleep, healthy diet, trigger point massage therapy, and gentle exercises I can control how often or how uncomfortable the discomfort becomes. For right now I am spending on average over half my day just working on doing the things that need to be done for me to have control of my bodies pain levels. I had to stop taking any of the Fr. recommended medicines because I was unable to accurately pinpoint what was triggering a flare-up, and many times the medicines were creating collateral problems that interfered with me reading the nervous systems signals from the start.. Right now all the skin on my body feels as though it has been scrubber hard with steel wool or been immersed in a ice bath, tingly and stinging pin pricking numbness. My ray of sunshine is I know I can get this under control and bring the discomfort down to tolerable levels with a little work today. Hopefully by two pm. today I will feeling close to a normal physical body.

To me HEALTH means Energy. Stamina. Flexibilty. A relatively pain free body. Enjoying healthy food. You are your body, and your weight loss efforts will succeed exactly to the extent that you mange to do the work on behalf of your embodied self. You’ll do much better when you focus on making positive changes to improve your health and well-being, rather than on fighting your bad habits.

Got about 8 hours, with interruptions due to police sirens 2x and one argument out on the sidewalk. The argument or often true fight is typical of a Saturday night as I live downtown.

I believe absolutely in my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
