I had posted about being tired all the time and not wanting to get anything much done, and that I had found out that I have moderate Sleep Apnea. My husband and I both have moderate Sleep Apnea. I wanted to give an update on how I thought it has helped me. I do feel better. Much better. I still have a hard time wanting to do housework, though. 🙂 But I feel like I have more energy and want to do more about getting my health back in order.
I have put on quite a bit of weight over the last year and a half or so. I was talking to a friend about wanting to get back into walking for exercise and losing some weight. She belongs to a local TOPS group in Holton. She invited me to a meeting on September 1. I joined and lost 7.25 pounds in the month of September. I would not have done it without first getting my CPAP machine. Hubby still says he cannot tell the difference too much. He always has been able to keep busy even when he is tired. But, I think he must feel better. He is not napping all the time in his chair watching TV. He still does now and then, but not near as much. I still sit too much in front of the computer, and don’t get as much done as I should, but I do move around more and have been walking more. Our farm is pretty much the perfect walking space. It has flat and rolling ground. Going down is not a problem, but coming back up is way more work than a treadmill! 😀 And I still have trouble trying to eat better. Old habits really are hard to break.
Tops has helped a lot too. By the way it stands for Take Off Pounds Sensibly. As I write this, I feel like I may have a gain when I weigh in this coming Tuesday. We had pizza for lunch and supper tonight. Guess I do have one more day to eat better and walk more. Maybe I will make a post about my progress on TOPS later. Have a great week!
Stay Safe and God Bless!
