Only two days and I have comments! And followers! THANKS for the support--this is fantastic. Exactly what I was hoping to do with "try different." Y'all rock.
The workday will be kicking off momentarily so I must run soon but had to share that yes it -was- a way better morning. Just as I had hoped.
Oh sure, I started at the "gee I could really use a couple hours more sleep" and today seems to be a Thirsty Day (somewhere between days 3 and 7 you -- well I, anyhow -- get horribly thirsty and just can't drink enough unsweetened beverages) but...
1) No waking up at 12-something AND at 1-something both to go to the toilet.
2) No waking up again at 3-something with the horrible sweaty yucky heart-pounding feelings.
3) No dizzy, no headache.
4)...and also 5) because it counts double: No self-loathing.
I'm pleased with myself. But still very much fighting complacency because I know Days 4 - 10 are the toughest of the lot.
