Okay, I have figured out what is going on...

Saturday, March 29, 2008

Yesterday was a really hard day because I felt completely unmotivated. Part of the problem is that I am not getting enough sleep. I was functioning pretty well a few weeks ago and then at the suggestion of my doctor, decided to try life without the sleep aid I have been using. Okay, that is not working. So, instead of getting mad at myself, I have decided to be understanding and try to take care of myself instead of kicking myself in the butt. I feel better just knowing that it is not a lack of moral fiber so much on my part, although growth in moral fiber is something I continually work on (I wonder if Metamucil makes a moral fiber I could take??). Rather, it is physiological. Not enough sleep leads to overeating and also feeling so awful in the day that it is really hard to do the things that I need to do. So, back to the pills and now I have something to report to my doctor. And in the meantime, I need to try as much as I can to do the things that need to be done around here. Gently.

    Sometimes, I use a sleep aid too. Instead of taking the whole pill, I break it in half and only use it when I really need it. They say its not addictive, but I still worry. Lack of sleep, does ruin your whole day.

    Good luck on your diet!
