Sleep issues

This image has been making its way around Facebook for the last few weeks. The first time I saw it, I thought 'that's BS'. After that I basically just ignored it. Then it happened to me last night. Seriously. I was sleeping soundly when all of a sudden there was bile in my throat and I jumped up out of bed because I thought I was going to throw up. I didn't. But it freaked me out like crazy. And yes I was lying on my right side. Went back to bed, lying on my left side, and went back to sleep. At some point I must have turned over because it happened again. Not as bad as the first time and I didn't jump out of bed, but I did quickly roll over. Hmmmmmm.......why would this happen now? Suddenly? With zero warning of any kind? I did eat some lemon Oreos and milk right before bed. And the bile tasted like lemon Oreos. So I'm blaming them for this. Which means, I really seriously need to stop eating that crap.

I had told someone at school that I was going to give up sugar and my excuses for Lent. I'm not Catholic, and I was only half serious. I said that on Wednesday and I've had sugar every day since then. So I think I'm going to make it official. No sugar and no excuses for the rest of lent - 37 days!!!!! I think it's something that I really need to do. I also need to lose the excuses. I'm always tired after work. ALWAYS!!! But on the days when I forced myself to walk the dogs or go to Crossfit, I felt great. Still tired, but great. And I slept like a baby. So that is it. Done with sugar and excuses for Lent.

Today will be an interesting day. I have a new WOD this morning, called ROMWOD - range of motion WOD. We are doing that before we do the regular WOD. Should be interesting. Then I have to go to the Blaisdell to pick up my packet for the Great Aloha Run on Monday. What the hell was I thinking signing up for that???? Crazy. But, it is probably my last one, so I'm going to do it. Hubby has to work most of the day, so there will probably be no dog walk tonight. Bummer. Was looking forward to that. Oh well, there is always tomorrow.

Okay, birds are screaming and I've got to get my butt moving. Off to seize the day.
