Ah, so we *are* on the same page: biscuits = cookies. Have you tried sugar alternatives? I know what you mean about oatmeal during warm months - I'm not fond of that, either!
I take it you mean you have chronic fatigue syndrome? I do, as well, as a result of lupus. Afternoons are also problematic for me, and it doesn't help that I get up so early and get to bed so late! Presently, I seem to be going through a relapse, so I'm in the process of researching why this is happening. I managed to sleep through a health report on TV last night about a marathoner who suffers from CFS and what he did to overcome it. What timing, eh?
Anyway, probably like you, I don't feel like eating most times, so my running suffers because I don't get enough calories, or take in too many "empty" calories. I go through stretches of time like this for no apparent reason.
Well, I'll let you know what I find. CFS is such a mysterious condition.
Take care, and don't feel badly about taking afternoon naps!
