Such a Struggle...

...to get up in the morning! Ha! You thought it was something really serious, eh?

I am going through the spell again where I have a hard time falling asleep for the last few nights now. I can't really pinpoint what the cause/reason as to why this is. I don't think I'm stressed [or am I?] since I don't have any reason to be. I've been doing my daily exercise which helped me before but not this time. Can it be my thyroid again? I hope not. It's been under control for more than a year now and I only take half a pill of my medication twice a day for the last several months now. My doctor is thinking of taking me off it completely if my next blood test comes back normal. So I am really hoping my thyroid is not the reason for my difficulty falling asleep. Hopefully it's something temporary and won't be a problem in the coming days/nights anymore. I hate not being able to fall asleep for hours at a time.

But even if I fall asleep way past midnight I still [my body that is] wake up around 6:15 every morning. My internal alarm still goes off to remind me to get on that elliptical...and I try to. So far I've been successful. The only question is... for how long? I still get on it at least 4x a week and it's probably the reason why I stay awake for the rest of the day. But if I continue not being able to get a full night's sleep, I may not be able to do that anymore as much as I want [& need] to.

Anyway, it's still a wee bit cold in the morning around here. It gets warmer towards the middle of the day. Our highest for today is mid-80s so it's definitely warmer compared to the low 60s we've been getting the last several days. I'm still cold though because the house temps stay at low 70s even if the AC is off...so here I am wearing socks and a sweater...tee hee. I am such a sight to behold, eh? LOL...anyway, I better get moving before I fall asleep on my chair. I can feel my body start to relax and my eyelids start to droop.

In the meantime...




Maybe I should give that a try...
