Much like Garfield the cat, I would prefer to stay up late
and sleep in till noon if the opportunity presented itself. But here I am, its 5:30am and I’m wide
awake. Did I change my sleeping pattern?
Unfortunately the reason I am up so early is because I had a terrible
night. I was waking up all night long
and this morning I just feel kind of awful.
And the reason for all of this is horribly embarrassing, I snore like a wildebeest.
I haven’t always snored like this. Sure if I was extremely tired I would
possibly snore, but normally snoring is not an issue for me. But within the last year it is becoming a
real problem. Poor Wunder Hubs has to
sleep with ear buds in just so he can get some rest. And it doesn't matter if I am sitting up or lying
down, the snores they come in full force.
This happens when I get too heavy. I’m guessing it is just one of the many signs
that my body just can’t take all of this weight. And no, I have not been good lately. You can pretty much tell by the frequency of
posts how I am doing. If I am posting, I’m
trying to improve my health. If I’m not
posting, I've likely ordered at the drive thru and am in a burger coma.
As always, I say to myself “I will start dieting “ This
usually is some magical date that will bring an event that is so glorious that
I will no longer be addicted to food. Typically it is a holiday. This time it is moving. You see we are in the process of buying our
first house (YIPPEE!!!) and we have decided we will improve our lifestyle
dramatically when we move in. The plan
is to eat at home or pack food for every meal, work out at least 30 minutes a
day, and never be addicted to food again.
In many ways this change is not an option, we will need to watch our
budget, we are putting the work out equipment in the living room, and we both
need to get lighter for our health.
Will this work? I have no idea,
but man I really hope it will. I suppose
real change would not be connected to some special event or time but instead
would just start to happen. Or maybe it
has already happened. While I continue
to fail I also continue to try again. So
maybe the frequencies of these two will start to switch and I will be more successful
and less of a failure. All I k now for
sure is that there is a beautiful sunrise out the window, I am enjoying some
apple cinnamon oatmeal with black coffee, and in an hour we will go walk
through our new home with an inspector getting one step closer to moving
in. So I am going to focus on the good
things and be thankful that we are all still here.
