energy levels

Monday, October 17, 2011

my energy levels have been super low lately. whenever this happens, i try to figure out the cause. but, there are so many possibilities--working night shift, depression, meds, getting sick, not sleeping well, not eating right, etc.--that it's difficult to really determine why with any certainty. i did get outside and active for a little while yesterday, so that was good. today i have some errands and cooking to do but nothing else pressing. should be manageable.

my calorie intake has been pretty low lately, so it would probably help if i bumped that up a bit. i've just had a couple of days when i was sleeping a lot after a string of nights. i'm really not trying to restrict. today's a new day and i can use it to make good choices.

i gave my page a little facelift. the new photos are from my trip to vancouver island last spring with my partner. it was beautiful! we did so much interesting stuff and saw a ton of plants, animals, and nature in general. the photos bring back that sense of a truly relaxing and beautiful vacation for me.

today: cook up the farmers market veggies for lunches this week
tomorrow: maybe a 20 minute jog before work?
every day: still working on that generous thing from my last post :)

    You sound like you're talking yourself right out of a bad time. That's great. Keep up the positive attitude. The pics are great. Even if you don't get 20 mins in, anything will be more than nothing. Doing something generous for someone is the best mood lifter. Especially if it's some one you don't really know.
