TMI warning!

I have been up all dang night!insomnia Pictures, Images and Photos
Not sure what could of caused the insomnia at all. I had NO caffiene after my morning time, hot tea. NONE.
Yesterday, I was in a bit of a pre TOM munchies mode, but I kept it all good.
I had my oatmeal for my breakfast, I had a few slices of beets & onions with some red wine vinegar drizzled over the top, I don't know how many radish slices, a half dozen of cucumber slices with some cracked pepper on top for a mid morning snack, a wasa cracker with a thin layer of natural peanut butter smeared on top, 2 sugar free jello's, lite yogurt for lunch and for dinner I had a smoked turkey on whole wheat bread. All in all, I kept my calories well below 1000, prolly around 600 or so.

I wanted to go to bed early last night and so, at around 10pm, I climbed in and tried to read to get tired. That did not work. I was up and down, heading to the throne. I must of been retaining fluids pretty bad. I went to the bathroom 4 times in an hour! So that is how my night was, up and down, to the bathroom and eventually I ended up on the front living room couch reading till after 2am.
Luckily, and miracuously, I am not cranky(ok, more than the normal Erica cranky that is lol) Having insomnia is so not fun.

I need to go to the grocery store today, but I don't really want to. It is so darn cold and windy. I am wondering if I can convince my crew to just eat some canned Ravioli or canned soup from the hurricane supply cabinet. LOL, Mom of the year ey????

Well, that is all I have to offer......coffee Pictures, Images and Photos

How can you eat beets? It's the one veggie I just can't seem to grasp. Are they pickled or something different othter than the ones just in the can at the grocery store?

Is it a SOUTHERN THING? Cause I can just see you canning your own...pickling them or something.LOL. ;)

Did you know that craving cucumber is a sign of LOW IRON? And being PRE-TOM and then last month with you being so cold during TOM....I wonder if you shouldn't get your iron checked. Just a thought. :)

Good luk with TOM this time around!

Look at that Jen....knowing all about cucumbers and iron and crap. Me? I have no useful info for you....except maybe Tylenol PM? (LOL) And 600 calories is not enough food. Your body is gonna go into starvation mode (maybe it already is and that's why you're not sleeping...you're hungry!) and then you won't lose any weight. Listen to me, now I sound like I know what I am talking about!!! NOT!!! I do like beets though!!

((hugs))

Beets are DEFINITELY a southern thing! I love 'em! I just buy a can and put some vinegar on it... so I guess they're sorta pickled.

I had NO CHOICE but to go grocery shopping tonight after work and it was dark and windy and cold - below freezing - and soooo miserable. the bag boy didn't want to take my stuff out but I had bought a huge bag of cat litter. I was like... dude... I can't tote that! He laughed... he didn't mind. These country boys are sweethearts.

Hope you have a good night's sleep tonight!
*hugs*
