Day 5 Free from Tramadol

Jan 17, 2009 - 0 comments

It's day 5 today and I'm feeling much more like a normal person this morning.  Yesterday I was depressed and felt like I wanted to crawl back in my bed and stay there.  Today I'm up early (couldn't sleep in) and started working here at home.  Yesterday I wanted to poke my eyes out because I didn't want to work.  It's amazing what a little sleep can do for a person.

I had my usual hot and cold flashes during the night, but nothing that kept me up all night.  More annoying than anything.  It wakes me up off and on through out the night, but I did sleep and I didn't have any weird or crazy dreams.  

I really want to get on my treadmill later today once I finish up my work.  I have been dying to get on there, but didn't want to push myself too hard these first few days of being off the pills.  I know how I can push too hard and then be down for the count because I didn't have enough common sense to let my body recover a bit more before I go balls to the walls.  So, today a simple walk on there would be nice.

I'm still trying to eat healthy and lose weight, but things are slow.  I'm pretty sure once I start walking again, it will be easier.  I only had one or two days that I was really craving junk, so I'm incouraged for now.  

Back to work and then play!
