This guy's been awake since the 2nd world war......

That's for all you BNL fans out there.

First off, things are going so well I can hardly stand it. I am starting to see results however slight. In weight training I'm having to increase the weights, some moves are getting too easy :) I know I'm losing fat in a couple of ways. The main one being one of my "resolutions" which was to stop wearing elastic waist pants. Since the new year I have been wearing button shorts and it's been killing me, I'm just not used to them. This morning I put my shorts on and they were a little loose. Not a lot, but enough to make them more comfortable. Yea!!!!!!!!!

Now my sleep issues. When I first started this during Christmas, I made it a point of going to bed early, 9 a.m., so that I could get up early. Since about last Friday, I've been sleeping like crap. I have a hard time falling to sleep, I wake up a couple of times during the night, and I'm awake - wide awake - before the alarm goes off at 4:30. I think I've figured it out. I'm still going to bed fairly early and I think I'm getting too much sleep. I'm the type that needs 7.5 - 8 hours a night or it gets real ugly. But I'm beginning to think with the working out and healthy eating I may not need a full 8 every night. Ugh, I don't know!!! But tonight I'm staying up a little later and seeing how that works.

Well, I really should get some work done, that is what they pay me for :)

you know you're over 40 when you have elastic pants.
My kids bugged me about my high waisted jeans until I finally broke down and bought new ones. I compromised and didn't go too low cut. I figure I'm 45 and I don't care to try and dress like my children. Not to mention I don't believe the low cut pants are very flattering - even on most teens let alone a menopausal mommmy.

Way to go flo! Now that I said that it sounds funny, it rhymes. Good going on getting looser shorts and doing the fun run and swimming. Sounds great. I like all the pics you do to. Especially Hawaii scenery, miss it. That would be cool if every blog I visit would do pics of their area, it's fun. Glad to hear your doing so well.

LOL! I've been going to bed earlier and I'm still tired! Not so much that I'm groggy or anything, or then I would know I wasn't getting enough sleep. Just that I find myself getting sleepy earlier in the evening. I guess eventually it levels off. And don't you just love that "not full" feeling with the clothes??
