Sleep is good for you............who knew?! ;)

Well, last night was my 3rd night in a row of 10 hours of sleep and trying to use hubby's bipap machine some. Let me tell you, it has made a world of difference. I have felt great for the past 3 days. How often do I say that? VERY, very rarely.

So, I guess that is the answer. I need 10 hours of sleep/sleeping with the bipap in order to feel well and be productive.

But it is very hard to get 10 hours EVERY night. Especially for a night owl like me who likes to stay up until 2 a.m. while the house is quiet.

It is midnight now. I am working on some church stuff.

I will go to bed before too long.

I will not get 10 hours tonight but that's okay. I knew I wouldn't. I will take a nap after lunch. I always do on Sundays. Sundays for me is: church, lunch, nap, church, eat, bed. :)

Okie dokie.....there you have it. The results are in and now you know.

I have a confession to make. I ate a whole bag of chocolate chex mix today. It was the first time we have ever bought it. *sigh* I should not buy it again.

*Singing* Come next Monday.......

I'm really going to have to buckle down and get back to taking all of those silly food pictures! I just flop without reporting my every bite to you all. I'm expecting a small gain on Tuesday. I'll go ahead and tell you that.

But Monday..........Monday.........Monday.........those pics will be back and IF I dare to go even one measly calorie over my limit (which is 1,950....three 500 cal meals and three 150 cal snacks).......IF I go over my limit, you'd better give me a good stern talking to. You will if you are my friend. I need it.

ta ta for now,
that wide awake TOPS lady

UPDATE: I have spent the past hour or so mindlessly wander around on the web looking up things like "homeschool storage pictures", which is silly, because I've already pretty much made up my mind about that. I guess I'm just nosey and like seeing pictures of other people's houses. (especially if they are more messy than mine)
and is now 2:22 a.m.........and I am going to bed. zzz


  1. I am so glad that the extra sleep is working for you. I wish I could sleep for 10 hours. I don't think I have done that in over 2 years.

    I had to laugh at your comment about my list. I did think today--I feel like I am nesting. I hope, I hope that means there are more children coming my way. That would be wonderful.

    How's the exercise coming? I will be glad to see your food pictures again--I like seeing what you eat. I can't remember to take the pictures.

    And you Sunday looks just like ours. Except I didn't go today. Bubba is grizzly with an ear infection and the weather was so bad we stayed home. I missed it. Hope you have a blessed Sunday!

  2. 10 hours sleep sounds like bliss - I am lucky to manage 7 these days (must be cos I am getting older, apparently you need less sleep when you are older, which is daft really because that is when you get more time to).

    At last I can post on your blog - it takes ages to load up - I think it is the music, although other blogs have music and it is OK.

    Hope you can put the chex mix behind you and move on - look forward to seeing your pics!

  3. Your Sunday sounds like my Sunday! Church, eat, nap, church, eat, sleep. Ha ha. I just found your site from Bonnie. I love finding other Bloggers. I know what you mean about being delighted when I see other houses worse than mine. Gives me sort of an... evil, no.. just a sense of betterness. Mwaahaha. Just kidding. But seriously, I do understand. Maybe every woman secretly does.

  4. You should get a machine for you! Mine changed my life ten years ago. I don't use it anymore after so much weight loss, but trust me, if I needed it, I would be using it all the time!!!

    My best
