Its been a while. I have been feeling bad by not blogging like I used to. I am hoping that many of you can relate to this:
I haven't been sleeping well or even at all for a while now. Hubby made me to to the Doctors. I kept telling him, WHY? They don't care and will only give me pills.
Well she gave me Ambien 5mg (generic) and told me to only take 1 cause 2 are bad. The first night I didn't sleep - not even 1 wink. It did nothing! And made me feel light headed and woozy.
Called the doctor and her nurse called me back and guess what she said?? Take 2... Seriously?
So the next night I tried that and slept for 4 hours and woke up. Called the Doctor back and she suggested Trazadone. I said NO! That's an Anti Depressant and I'm not taking that. She said there nothing else they can do. Like I said - they Don't CARE!
I tried a couple more nights then stopped.
Not only was I not sleeping and felt like crap but I also gained like 5 lbs. I actually feel better without them. 2 nights ago I drank some sleep tea (which I have tried every kind) and took a Unisom pill and I think I actually slept a little. Felt pretty good until I got to work. YISH!! Kind of stressful there - but I need the job - so I am stuck.
So the stress at work, the incredible HOT flashes I am getting all day and night, its a no wonder I can't sleep.
I am getting those couple lbs back off. Being careful of what I eat. Its not easy at work sometimes. Friday they had Pizza for someones birthday. So I took 2 pieces and ate off the toppings and just a couple bites of the crust and threw out the rest and ate some salad and a few bites of cake.
I realize how hard it is for some of you to find that RIGHT way of eating and losing weight. I got real lucky and am very grateful to Jorge's first Original Belly Fat Cure Book. I learned a lot from that and the Internet - which is a great tool.
If there is any advice I can give is to
NOT deprive yourself of all carbs. Learn which ones are the healthy ones and just eat less of them.
Eat 3 meals a day - no matter what.
Weigh yourself EVERY day - how else will you know what is working or not?
Eat at home more and make plenty of treats to have on hand so when you get an urge - you won't feel guilty.
DON'T count calories - that doesn't work!
And Lastly - NEVER GIVE UP!! That's all..
