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.

It all started so good.....

but fell apart about midway through. Let's recap and see what I can learn from this.

Friday's post was not great but I felt much better after writing it. Saturday went well. I walked to Crossfit; did the WOD; walked home; and walked the dogs later in the afternoon. Felt amazing.

Sunday was good too. Got up and walked 5 miles even though I didn't feel like it at all. I did not walk the dogs in the afternoon because Super Bowl was on and I had some drinks. But still, a good day.

Monday was awesome. I got up and did 20 minutes on the treadmill. Then came home from school and walked the dogs. Awesome.

Tuesday was another awesome day. Up and on the treadmill for 20 minutes and a dog walk in the afternoon.

Wednesday was another really great day. Up and on the treadmill, then Crossfit in the afternoon. I even went to Crossfit after coming home for a bit. Huge success.

Thursday was where it all started to fall apart. I overslept and didn't have time to get on the tread…
