You Win Some, You Lose Some

By | March 5, 2018

I had every intention of posting over the long holiday weekend, but you know what they say about good intentions.  I don’t know about everyone else but it rained Friday through Monday here, meaning not much yard work got finished.

On the upside, I did get an amazing number of things crossed off my to-do list….including naps here and there.  The hubby and I were just in sync and in production mode, which doesn’t happen often.  Usually one of us is ready to work and the other is ready for nap, but not this last weekend thankfully.

Okay-good news first….I finally broke through my plateau!

Woohoo!

Saturday’s weigh-in showed a 3lb loss for a grand total of 25lbs to date. I’m just going to come out and say right now that while I’m not trying to make excuses, the hectic schedule I had this weekend made it so easy to not pay much attention to what I was eating.

Most of our family meals were grab and go’s, or grab while on the go type situations, certainly not ideal for what I’m trying to accomplish.  Homemade chicken chalupas, grilled cheddarwurst, subs with plenty of ham and melted Swiss…..yup, I caved.  Big time.  Not only did I cave, but due to an unfortunate mini-blind incident courtesy of my five year old son, my treadmill was out of commission all weekend.  No, not ideal…not ideal at all.

But its back on the horse….the important thing is to not let this little hiccup sink my ship.  Just so you don’t leave thinking the weekend was an overall wash, let me tell you that a ton of stuff did get accomplished-we used our best leaf blower to rake up and bagged about a dozen bags of leaves before getting rained out, which led to the construction of an impromptu worm farm for one of my sons who was busy scooping up night crawlers from under the leaf piles I was removing.

On top of that, I built a lightbox for photographing the jewelry I’ve been creating and selling here lately and was able to get a whole bunch of editing work accomplished.  (You can check out some of my work here).

I can even say the house at one point was super clean-all of it at the same time too!  That was before the cookout yesterday though….we grilled in the rain and it was awesome.

I mentioned in an earlier post that I’ve been getting up obscenely early to put in my treadmill time, but I’ve had to cut out my second dose of Xyrem in order to make it work. Just for the record, I am not a doctor and DO NOT recommend doing this.

With that being said, this strategy worked beautifully for me at first, but of course the docs wouldn’t tell you take both doses without a reason.  Unfortunately I’ve really been feeling the effects of skipping that second dose……I’ve been noticeably more sleepy, and to the point that my husband has even commented on it.

I think I’m going to have no choice but to start it back up again and figure out something else as far as finding time to workout. That’s just one of those things you deal with as a Narcoleptic though, trying to find out what works and what doesn’t.  Chalk “skipping meds” up on the “didn’t work” side.

It gets a little tough to fit everything in- I only have from 6-9pm available most weeknights, not including all the extracurriculars my family has going on.  Agh.   I know there’s a way to do it, I just haven’t figured out what it is yet.  One of these days I’d like to get around to posting some of the time saving ideas I’ve been finding here and there online…..it’s on my to-do list J
