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!
