    Still struggling with getting enough sleep, especially with trying to get back to waking up early since coming back from a couple of trips. I think I've finally drilled it into myself that I always feel worse if I snooze or try to sleep another 30-40 minutes. Thankfully I was able to pick up where I left off lifting without a deload.

    Maintenance + TOM, so normal fluctuation.
    @CasandraW ((hugs)) I am familiar with the foster care, and my Mom suffers from severe mental issues. Constant drama is so draining.

    Weight has been trending downward this week but of course woke up to another blip on weigh/in day! Still down for the week so I’ll take it. Heading back down to Houston for the weekend to help our daughter move. That means lots of eating out but hopefully I’ll will burn enough calories moving to offset.

    Good Golly, I am sick again, honestly I am not surprised. I work in a school and there is the flu, a nasty stomach bug, and a nasty cold going around, and I'm the school nurse, so the fact it took me this long to catch something, and that I'm not sicker is surprising. I also work in memory care assisted living, and all my people are sick there too, so It was bound to catch me. I'm not super sick, started with a dry cough yesterday, now I have mild body aches. I worked out this morning but wasn't able to run, I just couldn't breath well enough, so I did an incline walk instead, then lifted weights. Im going to try the elliptical tonight and see if I can get a little more in, but we will see how that goes.

    So scratch that, I ended up Super sick, I think it was the flu. I Felt pretty crappy all day yesterday, and took tylonol to function at work, then didnt take anything once I was home, hoping my body would do its thing and fight it off. I ended up sick as heck, fever, body aches, my skin hurt, freezing cold, actually found coverage for work today, and I never call off. was up a few times during the night still really sick, then woke up this morning at 5am, felt like I had a hang over, showered, and still felt ok, just a mild headache, ended up going to work, and actually feel just fine now other then a deep hacky cough, and literally zero appitite. I had 1 starburst my son insisted I eat, and half a serving of soup that I forced myself to eat at 1:30. All I can say is thank goodness for a strong immune system

    Life is seldom easy - I think this is an encouraging reminder that we are strong enough to continue our journey.

    Having a hard time getting enough sleep. It stays light for so late that I just don't get very tired. I will try to just go to bed anyway, even if it's not dark yet. Birds start singing around 5:00 in the morning. I have started putting in earplugs when they wake me up so I can get a bit more sleep. Being up early is fine, but I think 7 is plenty early.
