Works For Me Wednesday - Sleeping Mask

Here we go another Einstein TIP from me lol   I picked this Sleeping mask up at Target a few weeks ago.. in the dollar bin.  I felt a little silly and immature for doing so, especially because the front of the sleeping mask says "Dream Girl" lol  I don't always sleep well at night, and I have been telling my husband FOREVER that it's because we have so many little lights on in our room.  Laptop lights, all these colored cord lights, night lights.. Our bedroom looks like a rainbow at night lol  So I gave this childish sleeping mask a try and "OH MY WORD" for the last week or so I have slept so soundly.. It really is amazing.  I don't feel claustrophobic, like I thought I might lol.  It is a very thin mask.. so its not hot..but its also comfortable with the light fuzzy fleece.  I used to always see women sleeping with masks on movies..and I wondered if it actually worked! lol  Well, for me it WORKS!  Yah! for sleeping through the night!! :)

I had one of those because our bedroom clock was so bright. I really didn't sleep well with the mask on, though...so I started putting it on the clock! Sounds crazy, but it worked like a charm!

I love my sleeping mask! It has some sort of lavender scent inside, which is supposed to make you sleepy. I thought, "Yeah, right," but it is soothing. Maybe I've just learned to associate the smell with dark, peaceful sleep. It's a lifesaver when I have a migraine, too.

Your mask is cuter, though :-)

I use a mask not at night, but when I take naps (sometimes I don't sleep well at night, but it's not because the room is too light). Love the sound of the lavender one!

huh....never really thought about one. I may have to look into getting one...especially a lavender scented one. Great idea

A little about me...

It is that time again!!!! I am thinking of attempting to lose weight for the 100 millionth time. haha. This time I know it will work :)

In November of 2007, I gave birth to my second child, a C-Section. Not only did that put me back physically, but I also developed high blood pressure. I am only 29. Talk about discouraging.

I started gaining weight in highschool. Seems to have followed me everywhere. My ultimate goal is to lose 120 lbs but I'll settle for 10 right now. haha.

There is absolutely no reason why I cannot succeed in this weight loss endeavor. I have exercise equipment. I guess that means I have to use it. Also, I am going to attempt the Carbohydrates Addict Diet. I have had some success with this in the past.

So I am thinking, with putting my progress out for the world to see.. it will force me to make the right choices. Let's hope!! Feel free to comment on anything or tell your story. It's always encouraging to hear about others successes. Join me on this weight loss journey...
