Sleep has not been so great lately. I have been lying there in bed, just trying to drift off, with little success.
I have followed the rules! I shut down my laptop a good 30 minutes before I go to bed. Same with the television. I find it hard to turn off “My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding” but I am doing it. I am counting backward from 300 by two’s (298…296…294…). Usually this helps shut my brain down as I am falling asleep, but lately…nope. Not doing the trick.

Sleep continues to allude me. I’m lying in bed until midnight or 1:00, just wide awake. And it is miserable.
Remember that leptin thing that Oprah’s sleep guy talked about? How leptin is the appetite suppressant that our body makes, and it recharges when we sleep? My leptin supply is running very low. I want to eat all the time. I don’t know what I want to eat, and I’m not hungry, but I am eating like it is my job.
I have that sleep-deprived fuzzy brain feeling right now, so I’m not even sure how to put sentences together.
I give up. I’ll leave you with another image from “My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding”. Why?
