Who Pulled The Plug?!?!

Monday, January 26, 2009

Wow! Yesterday was like no day I've had in a VERY long time!

I was totally without any energy or ambition whatsoever...my Spark had up and gone without any warning, rhyme or reason. I slept in till noon and when I woke up got about listlessly fumbling through some household cleaning, helping my DW halfheartedly with some big batch cooking and before long I got back in bed and zonked for another few hours.

I had no other symptoms beyond just being totally "all in!" Guess it was my day to crash and burn...after another night's sleep of 8 hours last night I'm feeling pretty much back up to snuff, although not exactly bursting with energy.

My biggest disappointment was that there was just no way I could muster a cardio workout yesterday. Everyone out there in Sparkland has been SOOO supportive and a great cheerleading squad, I REALLY wanted to, but just didn't have it in me yesterday. Got today's cardio done first thing, up on my 'mill. I'm considering "cheating" and doing a 2nd cardio session later today (which I NEVER do!) and designating that as "yesterday's" workout...lol! We'll see!

Whew, glad that is over now! Guess it is a lesson on just how important sleep is! I have never short-changed myself a LOT, an hour here and there...but I guess it piles up until the body says: "Hey you! You are going to STOP in your tracks RIGHT NOW and get the rest you need!" Wa-BAM! :-)

Take care of yourselves everyone out there!

    Being sleepy, tired and unmotivated.....just nature's way of saying "slow down". You can't be all out, all the time. Accept down time for what it is....a chance to slow down and recharge. emoticon
