Successful day. No workout, but I ate healthy and took the stairs 3x. Saw an East West doctor at UCLA today. He says the exercise / REM sleep issue probably isn't bad enough to be considered PEM, but if I follow the guidelines I will have an easier time getting all my workouts in... which is all I am asking for. I just want to go for a run, do some yoga, spend time with my friends and get a job. He also recommended American Ginseng tea to help with the hurdles.

And now I also know what windows to pook at to figure out what is affecting what. If I can measure it, I can manage it.

Also I have to thank my kitty kat for all the help getting up this morning. I don't know how she knew that today was important, but she did something she never does... she woke me up by sitting on my shoulder and batting at me with the tips of her claws very, very gently. After all that insomnia last night, I really needed that assist. Thank you, kitty kat. What a good momma cat.

 

Progress as of today: 72 lbs lost so far, only 85 lbs to go!

Also, almost forgot to brag… I made my friend a 7 day meal plan for Trader Joes to help her eat clean for ADHD, and my nutritionist says I did exactly right. I get a gold star.

10:41… still waiting to fall asleep. I should mention that my aunt got on me for dad being in the house too much. Was super glad I could tell her “I tried to get him out for a walk, but he was being difficult.”

happy-1 on 11/13/2021:
And I got a 14 hour fast in. By accident, still counts.


bearcountrygg on 11/13/2021:
Maybe your aunt could help out with her brother?

happy-1 on 11/13/2021:
From the other side of the country? I dunno. She's 9 years older. I'd hate to ask her to come out for a week or anything and fly till COVID is better situated. Talking to him is very helpful.

Nice job also doing stairs ! I am also going to really try at this !

Awwww to your kitty :) my pigs do something similar when I fall asleep with them still on me. They start to make little noises and move around a little and one of them will nip me lightly with his teeth on my face

Aaaaaw


Donkey on 11/13/2021:
Wow, that sounds like it was a really helpful doctor's appointment!

The link that you provided was very interesting. I see a LOT of similarities in the Fibro/CFS and the experiences my Husband has with his AS. The challenges that physical exercise pose really frustrates my Husband, since most of his efforts must be mostly diet-related (restriction of calories), since he can't offset calorie intake with exercising.

Anyway, what I'm saying is that I found the article to be very helpful. I like how you said that if you follow the guidelines, you will have an easier time doing what you want to do.

Momma Cats are the best cats - they take care of their families :-)

happy-1 on 11/15/2021:
That sounds awful. I thought fibromyalgia was about the managing of energy and avoiding the push/crash cycle? The Garmin Body Battery Garmin Coach features on the Forerunner 245 do that for you.

If you don’t have ADHD and remember to check the messages. Last night I was going to clean the kitchen, but body battery said rest and I was able to get REM and get up on time for fasting labs this morning.

Tried to get dad out to walk to Mc Donalds but he was so fussy, I gave up and went for him and brought him back 2 sausage sandwiches so I coiuld have a peaceful day writing challenge content. Which I did incessantly morning to night. I don't know how I had the presence of mind to get up and make dinner or go for a run. Tried to wake dad up for dinner and it was impossible. I had to nuke his dinner to warm it up 4 hours later and he got fussy because the texture changed. I gave up and wrote more challenge content... a 1 week adhd friendly meal plan for shopping at Trader Joes... because one of the women in the coworking group asked me for guidance... so I did a rough outline of it, spent way too much time on it... but I will get feedback by giving it to her right away.

Donkey on 11/12/2021:
I'm so glad to hear that the CPAP machine has shipped. I hope it helps you. I'm not sure how that would work with insomnia. I'll have to ask my husband what his experience is, with his machine.

All in all, it sounds like it was a good day. We have to pick and choose the battles we fight and when. I'm sorry the insomnia is so bad :-(

I hope your appointment today is positive.

Sigh. Team meeting today did not go well. One of the guys turned around and balked completely in the meeting. Bizarre because he was the biggest advocate. I reached out but haven't heard back yet.

I'll keep cranking on it. Worst that happens is I have a reason to get out of bed in the morning... Then I release for a few months in January as a fun toy. Go write the challenge content. Do what you said you would.

I also ran a little today. I have been feeling a little better consistently 2 weeks in a row. My VO2 max went up a point yesterday, but now it is back down.

COVID antibody test came back positive. I'm a long-hauler. It's not all in my head.

Trudging along, step by step.

I can do this... I can I can I can.

Donkey on 11/10/2021:
Oh my goodness! So you've had COVID and didn't realize it? (Asking for my own clarification only - have pity on this old Donkey)

Wow, I think that's kind of a game-changer. Is your doctor treating you for long-hauler issues now? Or what's the plan moving forward?

I'm sorry to hear about your meeting. The next one WILL be better.

happy-1 on 11/10/2021:
At some point... It's not really a game changer but following up anyway. If anything it explains why the Lunesta suddenly flipped on me after I had that head cold in November 2019. If COVID caused sleep apnea, sleep medications that affect sleep architecture are a no-no. Mostly I just feel validated and more in control, and that this isn't just some big, nebulous, impossible hole I won't ever be able to dig myself out of... My time spent on data yields actionable information. It is good and helpful and a worthy investment of my time.

happy-1 on 11/10/2021:
I'll get some guidance from doc on Friday.

Read in the paper the Feds are putting something like 1.4 Billion into researching long covid. Sure much good will come out of it that will help you and others. Also expected to shed light on CFS & ME


Horn_of_plenty on 11/11/2021:
i gotta say, if i had asthma, i think i'd learn to follow instructions...but she is still so young, 24...i'm sure she'll learn her lesson too. it will be scary when she's older and more prone to other asthma-induced scares.

that's interesting about the guy in the meeting totally acting out...you may be able to slowly establish a reconciling with him, or he may have just changed his mind and then i guess it's best he is left out of the plan / group completely. time will tell, i guess. maybe he feels he isn't "being heard," but maybe not.

oh no...but your dad never got covid??

also, i read some of those tests are UNRELIABLE. so you never know. bc the test is similar to a regular cold antibody test. teacher friend of mine also came back positive...i don't believe it. she's never around like anyone.

Got the Cpap prescription. Why was it so hard to get to this point? Will be a 6-8 month wait due to worldwide shortages to do it through insurance. Looking into a refurbished one tomorrow while I wait. I need something immediately, I can't keep going on like this. Now that I know it's appropriate I just want to cry that I didn't straight out buy one.

So tired.

Supposedly that makes it harder to get back to sleep. I had a cheese stick and a cup of herbal tea about 1 am. Finally got to sleep. What tips you into sleep?

Oh my goodness, 6-8 months for a CPAP machine? I'm so sorry :-(

Thus the rental. I feel worse for the folks who can't do a rental while they wait for insurance to process.


bearcountrygg on 11/04/2021:
That is a long time to wait for a c-pap....They need to be calibrated...will they do that for you with a refurbished one? Be careful choosing one.....that air goes straight to your lungs.....( or if you mouth is open...straight out of your mouth)....Bacteria thrives in those things so just be careful.

happy-1 on 11/10/2021:
Yeah, if I use it on auto setting for now it will be ok to start. This is from a legit medical company, so it should be ok.

sorry for the extra waiting time...but i'm very glad you will soon get it. xoxo :)

Bear has good advice.

one of my coworkers, young one at 24yo, has asthma and didn't clean her inhaler or rince (whatever it is) as it is supposed to...leads to bronchitis and infection. you'd think she would just listen to the doc! so she's out with bronchitis.

Oi. The scale climbed to 245.

Pulmonology appt is tomorrow. Everything is printed out. Praying I get REM so the appointment is useful. Today I slept 10.5 hours, but only got 30 min REM. For that length of time it should be 2.5 hours of REM. I feel like my brain is in a plastic sack and can't breathe.

Adding last night's prep for today:

  • Flr - No, the floor was not clear for yoga
  • Bkfst - No, coffe and breakfast were not setup
  • Fd - No, my day of food was not in my cooler
  • Ag - No, my agenda was not setup and put out for today
  • yLog - No my log for yesterday was not complete

Rebooting my 10 habits:

  • Bp - No
  • Ns - No
  • 14h - Yes
  • 2do - No
  • Pln - No
  • -250 - TBD. I didn't eat enough today so I may end up overeating.
  • 10cr - No
  • 10Kstp - No. Barely moved
  • 1G - No, more like 72 oz, not a gallon of water
  • 9bed - Probably not. Have been up till midnight since neighbor's 4AM Halloween haunt kept me up on Saturday. Working my way back to schedule.

Progress as of today: 72 lbs lost so far, only 85 lbs to go!

happy-1 on 11/03/2021:
So much for getting back on schedule… 12:30 am and I can’t sleep a wink. In bed since 11:12


Jacky82020 on 11/03/2021:
Happens to me EVERY night & worse.

happy-1 on 11/03/2021:
Augh. What’s keeping you up?


Donkey on 11/03/2021:
I hope your doctor's appointment tomorrow is a good one. You need some answers.

When is your 2nd sleep study scheduled for?

Good idea, I think, to get back to your daily goals checklist. I think it gives you a good indicator of what worked (for any given day) and what needs help.

happy-1 on 11/03/2021:
Pulmonologist ordered a triation test. Everything is so backed up… sleep studies take 3 mos to schedule, 6-8 mos total process with worldwide cpap shortage. Have to buy a refurbished one on my own while I wait. Will be a good emergency backup.

Nice job to think about your good habits and tasks.

happy-1 on 11/04/2021:
No, first sleep study said mild aleep apnea but I think it is severe.

You definitely should rule out covid. That link won’t open from here. I’ll try a C&P

happy-1 on 11/02/2021:
Yeah, COVID long-hauling, specifically.


Jacky82020 on 11/02/2021:
Comes up as rapid eye movement & sleep apnea. Maybe I didn’t copy entire link

happy-1 on 11/02/2021:
It is. Newly detected rapid eye movement associated sleep apnea after coronavirus disease 2019 as a possible cause for chronic fatigue: two case reports

Essentially, COVID can cause sleep apnea, specifically during the REM cycles so patients get deep sleep but not REM sleep no matter how long they sleep, and it is exacerbated by exercise.


Jacky82020 on 11/03/2021:
Interesting. But highly unlikely you had covid in 2019. First known US case in early 2020 in Seattle from a guy who visited Wuhan. Could be you will independently test positive though. Over 50% of people in some areas are. Asymptomatic cases.

happy-1 on 11/04/2021:
I know it’s scraping the bottom of the barrel but my sleep disintegrated the month I got sick and never recovered again. I just want to rule it out.

It was here in December 2019… and diseases don’t have hard and fast start dates like the IRS.

Pitch went well. We booked a follow up meeting for next week. I didn't get any of my havits in or a run because I didn't want to wear myself out before the pitch. Now I have insomnia. 

I have to say I enjoyed sharing an idea and how to execute it, then watching people's eyes pop out of their heads as they experience the "red pill" effect of a paradigm shift. I forgot what it was like to do that. 

I may feel like crap, but my brain is still in here kicking.

Inch by inch, step by step, pebble by pebble... 

Yesterday I tracked my hydration, meals, and went for a run. I got my pitch materials together for the business idea (second meeting today). I made an alternate plan for getting a CPAP prescription if the pulminologist won't give me one next week.

Today I deliberately slept late so whatever REM I got would last till the 3pm pitch.

Getting after it.

Tuesday 10/26/21 -

Worked on the business model for my online challenge idea. It's been so long since I have used my brain that I don't remember how to setup an online product anymore. OMG.

Lots of dad drama today. I'm after him to get a cancer screening because he keeps saying everything tastes bad. He objects.

At least the ranger bead bracelet is working for hydration. It's a little hard to find a way to track per oz without a second bracelet.... doing it by 8oz increments. My tea glass holds 12oz, so I just slide one halfway.

wishing I had one of thise hot water dispensers. That would be handy.

Progress as of today: 76 lbs lost so far, only 81 lbs to go!

And frustratingly I only drank half the water I needed to. I need to drink a whole gallon.


Jacky82020 on 10/27/2021:

I heat water in the microwave. Must reheat the same cup of coffee a dozen times. More steps on the Fitbit!

Donkey on 10/27/2021:
I have a tea kettle to boil water, but frankly, I use the microwave. Guilty as charged.

It's hard to drink a gallon. I try. It was easier in the warmer weather, and perhaps it is still warm where you are. I aim for 100 ounces a day, especially in the cooler weather. Not sure where I found that number.

Glad to hear the ranger beads are working! Could you use the beads to count how many times you refill your 12 oz bottle, and then calculate the ounces consumed from that?

I'm basically sliding 1 bead over per 8 oz then another bead halfway over for the 4 oz, then next 12 oz glass, I slide the half way one over and a whole one over. I need to get a 22 oz glass so I can fill it all the way up to 16 oz. Sigh.

I count water with a quart sized (4 cups) mason jar I crocheted a 'jacket' for ... I fill up twice a day to get 8 cups of water

That's a half gallon. If you are a big runner, don't you need to drink more water than that to lose weight?

I like the bracelet as well. it has a nice look to it. it's what rangers use? like park rangers?

i also like your watch! it's very busy and has a lot of info in it, i see!

i do agree with your entry a couple ago where you say at the end that it's more important to get up and run/walk than to overanalyze. yes. i think you do love to analyze but sometimes it could be a distraction (i think you like to distract yourself by analyzing your sleep, etc...i admit i like to count my calories!) lol.

When I haven't had enough REM sleep it is all I can think about because I feel so crap. At least tracking it channels that.

like a hot water sink dispenser where it always comes out hot? they have those too, but that's gotta be an expense. but you can microwave it...

Hydration is very important. Like the beads.

That’s really cool! How many beads does it have?

happy-1 on 10/27/2021:
Ranger beads always have 9 beads on one side and 4 on the other so you can mark distance as you walk. You slide the 9 beads then one of the 4 as the 10th bead, then back again.

Nice bracelet! The examples I was looking at were simple straight strings that one would attach to a backpack strap or so. The bracelet is kinda stylish if you ask me :-)

happy-1 on 10/27/2021:
Lacks femininity, but I’m packing an extra 70lbs right now. I’ll take the tradeoff till I can make something pretty.
