Working it out

My health and weight loss journal

It is about 23 degrees here! Okay, I know that has nothing to do with my health or my weight loss, but I just had to say that. Well, if you think about it that could affect my health by making me sick and it's helping my weight loss because I definitely move very quickly while I am outside.

I digress. The fibromyalgia situation hasn't changed too much. The medications that I am on are working fairly well and we're still working on my sleep issue. I must admit they have me on sleeping pills, which at least help me to fall asleep even though I am moving a lot in the night I don't wake up completely.

Hey, I just had a thought: What if I have restless leg syndrome? Hmmm? I just saw something about that on television. An-t-way... that's a subject for another day. I'll inquire about it, but I am not going to get to worrying about something that may not be the issue. Although it sounds plausible because they're kind of baffled as to why I still wake up so much during the night when I am taking sleeping pills.

I do have good news: I've lost two pounds! I don't think I told you I had gained a pound sometime last week. Now I am down to 164. Hip Hip Hooray! Yesterday I did yoga and the day before I rode my exercise bike. Today I only have 10 minutes available to exercise so I'll ride the bike for that time - I guess something is better than nothing.

I hope your New Year resolutions and commitments are going well. I've noticed that working out is helping me to feel stronger and tighter so I hope to continue doing it and hopefully it will begin to show even more.

In about 40 minutes I have to leave the house to pickup the teenager from school for a doctor's appointment so I hope this isn't too rambly or incoherent.
