Wow, I haven't written in a while. But work started again, and...well, I'm not drinking caffeine so...um, I was really tired. Valid? I think so.

Well, enough bitching about the "pain", here's some "gain".
One, I realize that I used to "gray-out" when I slept. I'd sort of drift off, easily awoken by a noise, a sore muscle, a vivid dream or for no reason at all. My sleep has shifted into this "black-out" kind of experience. I wake up far, far, far less than I used to...some nights, not even at all. Holy shamoley. Two, my skin has cleared up to the point that people have commented on it. Three, I finally got my handstand pushups, which may or may not have anything to do with my "clean" 18 days, but I am stoked! Four, a WOD (Workout Of the Day) or some Hot Dogs and Cupcakes clears that blinding pain right outta my head. Thank you diet and exercise. Five, I felt that Colorado earthquake Monday night while I was watching Bachelor Pad...totally unrelated but too effing cool to leave out of any list. Six, I am amazed and so encouraged by my community of friends and loved ones. Thank you for asking me how things are going and keeping me accountable! Thank you for keeping me in the loop on your own challenges! It is so energizing and, for me, crucial on the path towards our goals.

P.S. I have tried nearly all the suggestions given to me to aid my waking up process and they have worked wonders! I especially rely on rockin' tunage in the morning and a couple sips of sparkling water to get me moving. Thanks!
