I woke up so tired this morning, but not tired enough to go back to sleep.
Do you know the feeling I’m talking about?
It’s like some form of autopilot, where your body parts are moving but your head gets dizzy from sleepiness. Even with the coffee (2 cups) I had this morning I still feel…relaxed.
The more I thought about it, the more I wondered if it was such a problem to begin with. Maybe “this” is my new normal? I don’t know.
The whole thing made me wonder this morning if I get “on edge” confused with “energy” and vice versa.
Have you ever felt this way?
I hope you had a great Fourth of July. We didn’t do anything here and the guys mostly played around with this virtual reality headset that my husband borrowed from work. It never did work, even with my laptop I let them borrow to try and finangle it. He said he is going to bring home a bigger more bad butt laptop next week to see if it will work then.
My five-year-old is obsessed with watching these tutorial type videos on tv that show someone else playing a video game. It baffles us but isn’t profane, so we allow him to watch them. Then, once he gets a game, he already knows how to play it and what to do…again baffling. It’s his thing, I guess.
I lost the two pounds I gained over vacation so that feels good. I am now at a steady seven pounds of weight loss since I began this program. I’m excited to see what further results it will bring as I am very conscientious about it all and staying on it pretty hard core. This just means—no cheating! The hardest parts were cutting out bread and dairy but over time it has gotten easier. I enjoy a shake everyday around noon after I have been doing my Leslie Sansone exercise tapes for some activity during the day. All in all, it hasn’t been a huge change and I have even enjoyed some of the new recipes I can cook up in the kitchen. So far we have been eating a lot of cauliflower, as cauliflower can take on (I’ve learned) many different forms—mashed, dashed and who can hashed.
I pray everyday that I can reach the goals I have of optimal health for both me and my family. It is good medicine. Eating more veggies has rubbed off on them and in their choices as well so that is good and new and inspiring. The more days that go by, the better and better I feel. So maybe feeling “tired” is just my new way of feeling “relaxed.” Perspective is everything.
Until next time, stay lean and green! And I hope you enjoy your weekend as it is supposed to be a beautiful one. Thank you, as always, for reading.
