Health for days journey – July 6th (Insomnia edition)

Hello everyone,

How are you this Thursday? I hope this week has been nice to you.

My American people, are you cured from your 4th of July hangover or/and food comma? I really hope so.

Remember a few days ago when I said I was sleeping so well? I think I have spoken too soon. The night before the last I couldn’t sleep at all and was extremely tired so I thought I would stay in bed longer and take a big nap. Didn’t happen. I couldn’t sleep during the night and no nap during the day. By dinner time I was so exhausted I took my pills and took one more, as my psychiatrist said I should when I’m not able to sleep. So I took an extra pill, went to bed at 9 p.m, which hadn’t happen since I was in high school, and immediately fell asleep. Until I woke up at 1 a.m and could no long longer sleep. I was really surprised. I had taken an extra pill. One is pretty strong, two are supposed to really make you rest. I have no idea what happen. So I spent another night tossing and turning and with awful back pain because of it and bothering poor Rui because he’s a light sleeper. Before living for work, he had to apply one of those hot plasters on my back (the ones that stick to your skin). I tried to sleep after he left with no success. At least my back is way better. I will have to call my doctor about the sleep issues, though.

Sorry about my sleepless rant, guys. You know I share everything with you. The house (especially kitchen and bathroom) is in such desperate need of a clean and I don’t have the energy because I haven’t slept in two days. I might force myself anyway. Unless I feel I can take a nap, then I will definitely sleep, before I go crazy lol

Anyway, let’s stop the complaining and be positive!

I’ve been so good with my diet and my water intake. 2 l most days, which is great and really good for me. I’ve been cutting carbs. Not giving up on them, I know I need them, just eating small amounts. I’ll add about 4 crackers to my lunch or eat some rice for dinner or a slice of bread. I’ve been cutting dairy, limiting myself to plain Greek yogurt and a little milk for my coffee sometimes. I’ve been cutting on coffee as well. I don’t eat a lot of meat (I never did, actually) and cut way back on sugar. I’m really happy about it because I never had it so easy when it comes to changing my eating habits. I mean, if I’m on my period, it’s just impossible. I could eat all day, the most random things. All of this to say that I’m proud of myself for this changes.

What else? Oh, remember I told you I wanted to be at 300 followers on Instagram by the end of July? Don’t think it’s going to happen. There’s those people who keep following and unfollowing, I’ve been at 279 or 281 several times and then I’m down again, currently at 276. At such pace, I’m sure I’ll get there in about… 2 years. People just follow to get a follow back but I don’t do that shit so, let them be jerks.

I’ve been lacking on my exercise. Unless you count household chores and the day that I went swimming. I’m also behind on my cleaning schedule and movie a day challenge but I’m fine with it. As long as I finish them by the end of the month.

My to-do list for today should be:

  • Clean kitchen
  • Clean bathroom
  • Put the covers I recently washed back on the couch
  • Listen to some music
  • Do a little coloring
  • Call Starbucks because they messed my gift card order
  • Make a doctor’s appointment
  • Text my psychiatrist
  • Read for 30 minutes
  • Do some gardening (but it’s super windy and kind of rainy so I don’t know)
  • Watch Casablanca and Memento.

So, what about you? Busy day?

Have you watched these movies? Lover or hate or meh?

We’ll talk later, dear friends.

  1. I have been sleeping really badly also last couple of days, I think it’s due to heat, like it is so crazy here. Hopefully it’ll get better. xx


  2. Awww how kind of you to shout out your American friends! 🙂 Sorry you’re having sleep problems. I hope you’re able to get some rest soon. I have that same issue on Instagram. I followed a bunch of bloggers once to get some insta inspiration and then started getting a lot of followers at once. I didn’t know they would unfollow almost right away so I followed a few back and as soon as I did they unfollowed and then others that I didn’t follow unfollowed too! It was soooo annoying! Now I barely follow anyone because it annoys me so much! I really only follow bloggers I know!

  3. I’m sorry to hear that you’re having sleeping problems, Cheila. I hope that you’ve gotten through your to-do list today and that you got to watch those movies. I am yet to see Casablanca, but I’ll love to hear your thoughts on it when you watch it. Have a blessed day.

  4. I like Casablanca! Memento rings a bell, but I have no idea if I’ve seen it or not..
    Sorry about your sleep, hopefully your brain/body knocks it off so you can get back to a few good nights sleep again. I have no idea how Insta works, my numbers go up and down all the time too. I don’t tend to follow people unless I recognise them from the blog or real life.

    • It’s because people follow you expecting to be followed. When you don’t follow back, they unfollow. I’ve watched Memento last night. I didn’t like it that much. Too confusing. I actually slept well last night
