Moanday Link Storm

Moanday instead of Monday Ha!!  That was an accident but it is so true.  My mother was kind enough to pick out my spelling and grammar mistakes on the site this weekend so I could correct them.  I wonder what she will make of this.  I blame my spelling problems on the fact that I can never find my reading glasses so I am just guessing what is actually getting written on this page. So on MOANdays I am going to try to make a habit of posting links to interesting articles on the web. A friend is having some weight loss success after years of amazing discipline with little result using this web site http://www.myfitnesspal.com/  She has been able to increase her calories and still lose weight.  She is similar to many older woman in that her metabolism has slowed down and she has a persistent 20 Lbs stuck on her tummy and hips.

Naked Hot Tub!

Bet this title got your attention.  I wonder if I can get my site on a banned list this way. Todays topic is sleep.  Keep reading long enough and I will get to the hot tub.  I have had trouble sleeping for more than 30 years.  What do I do about it?  Well for years I did nothing.  I generally felt OK during the day with 4 to 6 hours sleep so I didn’t worry about it.  Generally I fall asleep at my usual time just fine and wake up 2 to 3 hours later to go to the bathroom.  This is when the problem begins.  I am wide awake.  I usually read for 2 to 3 hours and then sleep lightly for another 2 hours.  Again I am wide awake and running out of time to get more sleep.  If it is the weekend I can read for a few hours and take another 1 hour nap.  If it is a weekday there is no more sleep.
