I've been so stressed about flights today, that I hardly ate anything. That's something positive. Now I feel in control and will have a light dinner.

Ha! I read that as if you are going to the gym at 2:00 a.m., and I thought, "Man, she's hard core!"

Today is a rough day for me. Couldn't sleep due to anxiety issues (I have bad post partum psych issues that often manifest just as I'm about to sleep each night). Then had an early wake-up and we had to get out the door first thing to get my oldest to her French class (we homeschool). I did have to walk all the way through the (small) mall to get from where I parked to where her class was being held. This added roughly 8,000 steps to my day, hauling an extra 45lbs, so that's something.

It was great to come here and see positive posts, they really motivate me to do at least some form of actual exercise today. After the kiddos are in bed, I'll do a mini work-out before sitting down at the computer.

I feel lucky I'm working part time and can get the kids on the bus and still have time to exercise and get ready for work. I'm hoping that I will get this ingrained into myself. Even after only a few days, what 5 maybe, I wake up easier, have more energy, feel nicer and more patient. It's amazing! And I couldn't help myself.. I checked and I'm down a couple pounds..
Way to go!

Of course tonight is the pm night and my car literally broke down and we didn't make it to therapy or the gym- but I'm ready to add just one more am this week!

Mornings kill me. 7AM is killing me. I am much better at evening stuff. 8PM and I suddenly wake up. Gotta flip things around before August though! Rope Drop here I come!!!

So sorry about your car - hopefully it's just a minor fix. DH hit a deer right after we booked. Thankfully insurance covers it and we had money set aside that covers the deductible. Otherwise we'd be out a trip.

I am so thankful I have a treadmill in the basement so I don't have to leave the house. Can't imagine having to go to the gym for 5am. Now I roll out of bed at 4:50a, change into my running clothes and I'm on the treadmill by 4:55ish.

So sorry you had a rough day. Hopefully tomorrow will be better. I never had PPD, but I get insomnic right before my time of the month. All the muscles in the back of my neck tense up and I get a crippling headache. If it's not too bad, I can usually get some improvement with a magnesium supplement. And even a B complex. If that doesn't help, my dr have me a mild muscle relaxant. I'm sure you probably have a doc you're working with, but have you tried anything like that?

Thank you! Those are great suggestions. And yes, Already trying them - with some success. It's not PPDepression - but PP OCD Instead of being a mama full of sadness, I'm a mama full of anger - which is sad… But this is my 5th time going through it - and luckily I have a very supportive DH and children. My Dr is also great at helping me through things. It's easier this time than any of the others. But those moments are really tough. The OCD has me 'seeing' all kinds of horrible nasty bad things that *could* potentially happen to my children or spouse. I have a deep fear of house fires (my house burned down as a kid) and last night our lights sparked and flickered, and didn't go back on - breaker never tripped. I stayed up way too late convinced our house was going to burn down due to an electrical short in our ceiling…luckily I have an iPad and can play mindless games - if I'm lucky I can tune out the thoughts and then drift to sleep while trying to get 3 gems in a row. But then the lack of sleep - makes anxiety and intrusive thoughts worse - which leads to more lack of sleep.

One WDW trip I was unable to ride in the shuttle boats between MK and the resorts b/c I was convinced one of my children would fall of the dock, into the water, and drown - or get eaten my an alligator… I mean these aren't likely thoughts, but they're way too vivid to allow sleep - and the only way sleep comes is if I have a plan to avoid the situation - or if I have a plan for in case it does to pass.

Right now my thyroid meds need adjusting - so it makes things harder. I'm taking high levels of vitamin D (we're WAY north) lol Vitamin C, multivitamin, epsom salt baths when I can get time (about once or twice a week), and when DH is home, he lets me sleep in an hour or two. PLus everyone is working really hard at home to take away certain triggers to make it easier for me. I really have an awesome family!

Anyhow - thanks for the therapy session! Tomorrow will be better, DH is home tonight and my dog came and gave me a cuddle. It always helps.

I also apparently chose a machine with a broken tv and the FAN is blasting on me. Did I mention brrrrr? But I'm down a few pounds and I'll take it!!!

If coming on here and posting about it helps then bring it.

Stepped on the scale this morning and was up about a 1lb. Guess that is what I get for eating too much, drinking too much and being merry too much over the weekend. I'm very happy that I made my 10,000 step goal on my Fitbit yesterday and will work at it again today. Hopefully that helps to get rid of the 1lb and many more.

I made pancakes this morning for the students in my class, and I did not give into temptation. I did not eat one. That's progress for me.

Rough day. Some of it's my fault. I rented game of thrones season three from our library and finished it off. Stayed up past midnight. When I woke up I could tell I was off. My upper lip was slightly twitching (never had that before).

My DD has been sick for over 10 days now. We start her second antibiotic tomorrow. It's exhausting.

But I still managed to have a good breakfast and did my morning aerobics, so I'm glad I could manage that.

Going to get some rest now. Good night..
