Lost one pound already. Woohoo! BP looking good.
I finished reading a violent and disturbing (but great!) noir novel last night called Hell on Church Street by Jake Hinkson. I also started taking melatonin last night for insomnia. Bad combination. I had some crazy dreams, dreams that I was in NYC at some kind of
shopping/convention complex and a group of criminals I'd somehow gotten
involved with were out to kill me. I knew I needed to get out of there,
but there were a bunch of different parking areas and I couldn't
remember where I'd left my car (my black 1984 Fiero that I got rid of over twenty years ago). I had some sort of little chit to get on
an airplane and I gave it to the wrong person...
Things just kept getting worse and worse. A noir nightmare, if you will.
Anyway, I woke up
several times last night with my heart racing. Other than that I slept
okay, though. I think the bad dreams were a combination of that book I
finished and the melatonin. I remember melatonin giving me vivid dreams
years ago when I tried it. So I might try the melatonin one more night, and then stop it if the bad dreams continue.
I'm hungry this morning, but not starving. Just a healthy appetite. I feel pretty good. Looking forward to some fruit for breakfast and a nice long walk and then a big salad for lunch. All that after I get some writing done.
