fitme Journal: Chain Reaction boundaries guthealth priorities sleep Jul 06, 2021

Today I prioritized extra sleep over writing this blog. I stayed in bed longer and now don't have as much time to write.

Good job on getting more sleep?

Nope- Here's the truth.

Last night, I prioritized watching old episodes of Grey's Anatomy over sleep. I stayed up too late and didn't get...

Georgia just slept 11 hours. I'm not kidding.

 

We started the "Taking Cara Babies" sleep program 5 nights ago and we are finally getting somewhere.  

We started sleep training just in time for Georgia and I to travel to San Diego tomorrow.

I'm sure we will have to start all over...

I received lots of nice notes and encouraging messages about sleep. Thank you.   

Yesterday Amazon delivered a cute little stuffed owl that plays lullabies and projects star lights. We tried the new bedtime routine to no avail. I took Georgia in my...

Brain Fog

 

I think I have brain fog.   

More than one time recently I've been unable to recall someone's name that I know.   I stare at their picture and their name just isn't there. 

I'm guessing it is sleep deprivation.  We are still struggling to build a sleep...

Bake Your Cake

 

Guys, I got real sleep for the past 2 nights!!  Georgia only woke up one time and it was at 4 am so I got to go back to sleep.   I'm so sleep deprived that 7.5 or 8 hours feels like an eternity.  P.S. if sleeping 7.5 or 8 hours feels epic to you too, then you...

Fracking my soul

 

I'm back from Arizona. I have fluffy cheeks that I know come from sleep deprivation. Last night I slept well....but it almost made it even more obvious that my body is in deep sleep debt.

Georgia did great on the trip. It wasn't easy, but we made it work. I literally ran...

Matrix of Sleep

 

It's been many years since I was chronically sleep-deprived.  I definitely forgot what it feels like.  Even now that Georgia is sleeping a little longer, I am still getting far less than I was before.   Before I got pregnant I was sleeping 8-9 hours/ night....

garden birth....

 

The past few nights, my sleep hasn't been great.  I have heartburn and can't seem to fall into deep sleep.  I feel like I am dreaming while I am awake and hours just pass with no rest.   Figure this could be pregnancy or anticipation of the upcoming...

I did that thing again.  I woke up at 2am to take Bonny out and then couldn't fall asleep.  I almost gave up trying, but managed to sleep a little more from 5-7.

3 hours of awake while Bonny slept soundly.

Guess who else was awake?? Baby bump and 1 million...

Bonny Bear!   We honestly were almost committed to Donut until we met her.   I have never met a dog that looks more like a teddy bear or is so pretty.  So thus, Bonny (Scottish for pretty) Bear.   Bonny for short.  The D...
