The Early Morning Struggle

Peeps and Meeps: this is not going over too well. 

It’s been a week now that I’ve been at my new job and while I love hanging out with this little guy, I am hating waking up in the mornings. Not like I did when I was a teacher where I hated my life and I hated my job and I didn’t even want to get out of bed. This is a new hatred. It’s an I feel like I’m going to hurl hatred. For some reason, if I get to an overtired state, I feel like I’m going to be sick. Either at night or in the morning. And in the morning it SUCKS!

I’ve been waking up at 6 for almost 2 weeks now. I started even before my job started just to get used to it. That first week was ok but as of last Tuesday, whenever I wake up I feel like I’ve caught a stomach bug. I can barely eat a banana before I feel like I’m going to have to make a run for the bathroom because it feels like it’s going to come right back up. Then I’m stuck in this vicious cycle of not eating because I feel sick and then feeling sick because I haven’t eaten. I’ve been packing some toast to eat during my bus transfer (I usually have about 10 minutes between one and the next) but omg it sucks!

On the plus side way though, I found out at my doctor’s appointment on Saturday that I’ve lost about 5lbs since the end of May (my doctor said he was proud of me and then showed me pictures of hippos on his phone from his trip to the zoo the day before). I’m not sure how since I’ve been on vacation and being lazy and just eating whatever I want, but it’s probably from not eating breakfast and eating a toddler’s sized lunch. So that’s good haha

  1. Sounds like a stomach acid thing. Have you tried putting something high in carbs like a muffin or crackers by your bed? Alarm at 5:30, eat it fast then snooze until 6, tummy will be settled by then, jump started?
