Here I am awake at what feels like O'dark thirty. I went to bed to late to be up this early. I need to get back to the rhythm I had before Oklahoma. I was going to bed and getting up and feeling great. Lately though, I have been going to bed far too late and then hurting during the day because I am so tired. uuuggghhh or if I am lucky Dr. O will be home and will get up with the kids and let me sleep in. So the new goal will be to go to bed tonight, maybe that is why I am up at this time. I will certainly go to bed tonight.
I am trying to get things back to normal but so far I have not been fully successful. It seems I am tired all the time, first it was the stress of the trip, then not sleeping well, now going to bed too late and getting up too early.
I have been trying to take care of some important paperwork for the family. I have paid the bills as best I can. I have obtained the Christmas Knit List, I am finishing up on some projects that are in play. I have gone to the doctor. I guess I am just trying to take care of things that slipped by the way side with Oklahoma.
Another new thing for me. I have been working on losing weight since January and I can say I have lost pounds. I am more health conscious that I have ever been. I am choosier in what I eat, and now crave fruits and veggies rather than cake and cookies. I got a dehydrator so I can make some healthy snacks not just for me but for the kids. Another choice that I made was to exercise more. I have Jillian tape but I am not tackled her yet, she kicks my butt!!
Yoga, though. I did start. I love it. I have never really done yoga and I find it is awesome. It helps with the pain of the Fibromyalgia for sure. It also helps my neck as well. If I do it right before bed, it relaxes me so much I fall right to sleep. It is also helping with my posture I think. 38 years of slumping is enough. I am working on standing up straight.
There are a lot of changes but I want these changes to be in effect and have the girls be part of all this. I want them to grow up in a healthy atmosphere. Learning to eat properly and exercise frequently. There is so much I want for my girls and I can only try to get there one step at a time.
Dr. O is in the middle of an ER rotation, then down to serious studying for Step 2. Which he takes in mid-July. I am nervous I will admit, but I am believing in God that he will see us through as he always has before. Immediately following Step 2 are away rotations, of which I am not looking forward to. However, they must be done for the good of our family. I know this but that does not mean I am happy to be apart from my hubby for an extended period of time.
As I said before though, God will see us through as he always has before. God has a bigger plan for us than we have for ourselves.
