Insomnia update

I'm not a superstitious person. I don't believe in that kind of thing at all. However, I still have been hesitating to give an insomnia update. Why? Because I don't want to jinx the sleep!! That's right - SLEEP. No drugs of any kind - not even Tylenol or Advil PM - which, until now, I have not even categorized as drugs - they were just another part of my nightly routine. I have been falling into bed exhausted every night... and actually FALLING ASLEEP. It's been almost a month now, since I got back from vacation (a week in Punta Cana.) We had a horrible bed at the resort, it felt like I was sleeping on concrete for a week. So, when I got home, I was soooo excited to sleep in my own bed, that I skipped my nightly dose of sleeping pills... snuggled in - and went RIGHT to sleep! And it's been the same every night since.
So there you have it. I feel like a normal human being for the first time in about 2 years. Now would be a GREAT time to get back "on the wagon" as far as the diet goes, right? Although... wouldn't want to start something different and disrupt whatever I've done to get oh-so-wonderful SLEEP, hee hee...
Okay, I started that post 6 days ago and have since started back on WW, yay!! I even worked out TWICE this week at the gym with my bestest friend. And no disruption in the sleep! So far so good.
Personal checklist: sleep... check, eating right... check, exercising... check! I think I'm on my way!
