This morning I am zapped… I’m tired. I’m sleepy. I feel like crap. The reason is that last night I sweated a ton as I slept and there was at least twice during the night that I got up during the night after tossing and turning and didn’t manage to get the bipap mask back on… so a bad night got worse.
Yesterday, my parents were kind and took us out to eat at subway, where I foolishly had a foot long spicy italian on italian herbs and cheese… and that was followed by a very high carb trip to Orange Leaf next door to the subway.
That many carbs is always a mistake… and it makes me feel bad later… I’m paying for it now. High carb meals like that for dinners make me sweat a LOT when I sleep… the pillow and sheets are so wet with sweat that they are soaked. What’s bad about it is that since I became diabetic, bad sweats at night like that always reek somewhat later since there’s something in the chemistry behind whatever is causing it that makes it very acidic and almost smell like vinegar. All that icky sweat in the pillow and sheets make it very difficult to go back to bed after I awaken at various times during the night.
so.. needless to say, I’m feeling like crap today… so I’m not working out this morning… but I do plan on trying to work out tonight if I can… and hopefully this won’t happen again, and I can muster the courage and willpower to avoid overeating in the future in situations like last night… it is just so hard to fight the temptations when you are surrounded by people that are overeating at family get together type of things like we had yesterday (we had a big brunch at my Uncle and Aunt’s house earlier in the day, and mom and dad just stuck around in town afterwards. The brunch was not so bad… it’s the dinner that was.).
What’s really sad about it all… feeling this lousy in the morning, I’ll probably feel the need to eat wrong today and have a bunch of caffeine, and/or sugary type of foods, all of which just amplifies the problems and makes the vicious cycle get worse…
