Over the long Thanksgiving weekend I found myself sliding back into that lazy, sitting around all day, and not getting dress pattern that I was experiencing before. I had a really good week before that, but probably let the bad news from the scale get to me a bit. The fact that my husband was home for 5 days also sitting around and doing nothing helped me justify sitting around myself. Now I'm trying to get back into the nice groove I found two weeks ago, but I'm struggling a bit.
For two nights in a row now I have not been able to fall asleep until after 4:00 am, which as you might suspect, leaves me feeling really tired and foggy the entire next day. I took a walk yesterday and know I should do the same today, but damn. I'm tired.
The progesterone cream doesn't seem to be making any difference. After reading other women's experiences with using it I was hopeful that I would sleep better, not worse, and that I would experience more energy during the day.
I'm not giving up, though. I have a healthy homemade soup on the stove
for me to eat for lunch for the rest of the week. I'm going to keep trying to make better diet choices. I'm going to get a little bit of exercise in today, and I'm going to hope for a better night's sleep tonight.
