Morning Musings


I've got today and tomorrow then I'm off on Sunday, sigh...can't wait to be off. I'm not tired really, my job is easy. It just feels like I'm there all the dang time.

So I mentioned in an earlier post that I was experiencing hand tremors, well there gone. It was the stupid caffeine that I was drinking last week. And I wasn't even drinking full strength coffee, just 1/2 decafe mixed in with decaffeinated. It's crazy how sensitive my body is to caffeine. The only caffeine that I get now is through chocolate.

Well, I've got some exiting news. My little towns recreational center is starting Zumba classes two days a week!! I'm joining next week and I can't wait!! I'm hoping it will jump start my motivation to workout again and eat healthy. The two kinda go hand in hand for me. Lately my eating as been disastrous. Pardon my language but I just have a case of the f*ck it's.

I know this blog is about my journey, but I have got to brag about my kids this morning. They are doing so good in school. Dalton is 10 and he just got invited to join Junior Beta Club. His grades have been so good, straight A's on his last report card!! My daughter, Elizabeth, is 13. she is an A + B student and is in marching band.  She just loves it, she gets so excited when she has practice. It's all she talks about.   I just feel so privileged to be their mom, I must be doing something right. :)

They are both growing up so fast, I'm so proud of them.

Im an Owl, Hootie Hoooooo


It's 1:30 in the morning and what am I doing up you say? Well, going to work to pull old sale tags naturally...duh.  ;-)

Luckily I went to bed around 7:30 last night so I got some sleep in. I'm starting to look forward to this early morning shift. I know, call me crazy but when you only working with two other employee's in the whole store its very quiet, and there is no customers. That's even better.

So I went to my doctor yesterday and he wants me to go up on my Zoloft since I'm still experiencing some depression. I've been on the medication for 6 weeks now and I do feel better, I'm still battling a huge loss in motivation.  I'm going to start the new dose today when I get off work around 11 am.

And I mentioned in my last post about my hand tremors. Well come to find out Zoloft can cause that, but it should subside and he also told me that caffeine can make it worse so it looks like I'm going to have to REALLY watch my caffeine consumption.

 I still plan on buying a glucose machine and I'm going to watch my blood sugar. to get this night over with. I love coming home before lunch :-)

later gators.

It's Monday!

Good Morning,

I've got about 4 mins to post a quick update. My baby girl was in her marching band this past Friday night, it was so cold but she held up like a trooper. She absolutely loves it! I'm so proud of her. 

So lately I've noticed my hands getting really shaky, which in turn makes me feel panicky and then I start getting distracted and can't concentrate on my job. I'm thinking it's low blood sugar, so I'm buying a machine and I'm going to test it. If it is low then I will go to the doctor. My mom has hypoglycemia so it's very possible for me to have it too. 

Times up. 

August check-in

Morning, Are you having a good day? I hope you can say 'yes I am' cause I'm always having a good day when I'm not at work....
