Not Looking at Calories Today

Tuesday, June 25, 2013

I am weary to my bones today. I don't know why. I had a good workout today - my favorite video, which is JM's No More Trouble Zones. It was a little more challenging than usual, but I fully completed more of the exercises, so that was AWESOME.

But after I started working, I just got so tired and felt so low. I had my fruit and yogurt smoothie, then some Wheat Thins, just because I felt super hungry, then a pear, then my lunch salad, then my peanut butter and celery. And just now, a piece of bread and butter. I feel very hungry. I probably need to analyze that - am I really hungry- can't be, with all that food, or am I just "feeling" hungry because I am worn out. This could be residual from the stomach virus last week. Hmmmmm.

Don't think I'll take a walk this afternoon, it's hot and the smoke from the fires will be coming over soon. Last night the smoke was intense, and I took a walk anyway, and was hiking through Garden of the Gods , I was wishing I hadn't. My eyes were watering, my throat was getting scratchy, I could see the smoke in the air. That may be contributing to this feeling of malaise as well.

I may just read a book in my easy chair. That sounds REALLY good. Better than snacks!

    I know many times I think I am starving, if I take little nap, I wake up fine. We all have those days. Maybe your body is not up to par they. Enjoy your book. Tomorrow is another day.

    Everyone, thanks for the encouragement!

    RSHAID, I bet it was Buckskin Joe's (the ghost town). I love living in Colorado, I live about a mile from Garden of the Gods and walk there all the time.

    Vic, thanks! I pray that God Blesses you as well! I usually feel great after a work-out. I think it was all the smoke, and just the fires were really making me sad.

    Cathemarie, I definitely think more protein would help. I am learning about nutrition now and am pretty amazed that I did as well as I did on my former diet. It was HORRIBLE.

    As a kid, I spent most of my summers in Denver with my father's side of the family. I have such fond memories of Colorado, especially Garden of The Gods, and the Royal Gorge Bridge. At least once a week, we would go to a ghost town to get rum raisin ice cream. I can't think of name of the place. Colorado is gorgeous. I hope the fires are contained soon.

    When I workout, I usually feel energized. You might want to look at what you are doing. God Bless YOU! Vic.
