  • About 6 hours sleep with light>deep. Got new scale yesterday. My old one was a liar - enough said. Cracking down on myself. I'm tired of cheating, feeling bad, sleeping poorly, and not loosing weight. I know I'm trying to self medicate with food (better than alcohol - been there) and I'm ready to move on. I need to get out of this funk - semi-depression. Leftovers today for boys. Primal fuel shakes for me - I need to shock the system. I have got to pay bills, balance the check book, re-organize my desk, and work on a paper. I'm planning on putting on some music and getting out the sledge for some quality time together. Might try Barre3 also. Trying for no nap today - need to get my sleep back on track. Will report on if I complete the list.

      • I had typed out a big long entry here and then lost it! Oh well, probably meant not to be. I'm definitely feeling the summer doldrums myself and slept for awhile this afternoon in my cave strictly to escape the heat. You, however, are different. I am in awe of your ambition, drive, and dedication to both your career and your family. You have been through a lot in the past few months with really no recovery time. I'm glad you can come here and put things in your journal and that it is helpful. I know it is for me, both being able to articulate things and for the support of the people here. I hope Juliet is being very good to you!

        • Thanks Siobhan. I just feel blah, sleeping too much or not enough, and making poor (read childhood comfort) food choices. The irritability I feel around DH is part of it. I think you are right about a lot in a short time, but understanding why doesn't get the chores done. I will try breaking things down into smaller chunks. I've got a massage Monday - hopefully that will help!

          • Massage canceled - her new shop isn't ready yet. Obviously up because I can't sleep. Went thru mail. Updated check register (must pay bills today). Drinking camomile. Hoping for sleep.

            • Hope you got some good sleep. On my nights off, I am getting in the habit of going to sleep early, then waking with the felines at 4 AM, feeding them, and then going back to sleep. That second sleep is always the better quality.

              Of course, this is of no use whatsoever to you, but there it is. Have some fun today!

              • Went back to sleep for about 3 hours. Finally got the bills paid. Target shopping done. Spent about an hour on Skype with one of my school buddies. I feel a bit more upbeat now.

                • I primalized sesame chicken in the slow cooker and had mine over cauliflower-rice. A nice Chardonnay and some of the evil salted carmel gelato. Hoping to sleep well tonight. Paper tomorrow. Maybe a facial with shoulder massage - I'm really tight and don't feel comfortable going to a different masseuse due to flashbacks from a bad experience in college. I've got hamburger steaks thawing for tomorrow and will broil asparagus and cauliflower to go with. Okay, off to read and unwind for a bit.

                  • Slept 9+ hours with deep=light. I don't really remember the couple of wake periods it recorded until 0500. Actually feel pretty good. I'm going to be lazy until DH goes to work, then get my paper written. I'm gradually increasing my walk goal on the Up, so today I'm going up again. Eventually I will hit 10,000 steps per day! I think I'm coming out of my funk, slowly. I've ordered some tea and a supplement, as well as two cognitive therapy books. Tomorrow clinic, laundry, and packing. Wednesday I'm on the road again.

                    • Talking about up bad massage experiences from college... I've actually never been to a "real" masseuse. But I dated a women in college who was in training to be a masseuse. She taught me massage as she learned it. I was a most willing test subject and got pretty good at it myself. It was wonderful.

                      Of course, being 20-something, our mutual massage practice nearly always turned to sex and I guess in my mind I have always associated massage with foreplay and growing fat in the intervening years, I have always thereafter shied away from massage.

                      One of my promises to myself when I get to a good weight is to get a massage and to break through that particular barrier.

                      Good luck on the road, I'm home until September, unless something comes up!

                        When I wrote that I knew it would come across as a bad massage experience, but the experience wasn't during a massage. The issue with massage is being mostly naked, in a dark room, with a stranger. My therapist is female, is fanatical about draping, and always keeps one hand on me when moving around or getting towels/stones so I always know where she is. She also knows not to put any pressure on my throat. I've actually relaxed enough that she can use deeper pressure without it being painful. .

                        Will be on the road Wednesday morning and home late Monday. I've been planning my eating and hope to work out some.

                        • I had a bad massage experience once - nothing sexual, just someone who engaged in inappropriate chatter and made some really bizarrely unwelcome comments. Example: "You don't have kids? Is something wrong with you?" I didn't have a massage for years after that. But I would like to try foot reflexology. A friend of mine has it done regularly, she swears by it.

I'm not sure she liked how it made her feel, but for her nerves the side effects (unsteady walk, clingy) were worth it.

It was ok - you see one fireworks display you've pretty much seen them all. It was 15 minutes and then done. Next year I'm getting some doggie downers for him.

                            • I'm happy to hear you are pulling out of the funk and are starting to see things a bit more positively. We all go through down periods - and it normally passes on its own. I'm thinking the CA scare was just a really big stressor/shock on your system and you're body needed time to recover. Being good to yourself in all aspects is the only way to come back from something like that. Eating well is necessary for sure! But also giving yourself permission to "slack" a bit on the general responsibilities of life is sometimes necessary too.

                              I hope you continue to see things improving in mind and body................ {hugs!}
