Day 56

Sunday, December 09, 2012

Today has been a kind of strange day for me. I'm not too sure why, but, as Tami and I say a lot "It is what it is".

The morning started out with me waking up feeling kinda blue. No particular reason for it that I could think of, just felt a little off my game mentally. So i went in and shaved and showered and started my morning. Came downstairs and made breakfast for me and Tami, I made my country scramble again. After breakfast, I got ready and went to my congregation meeting. Fellowship with my brothers and sisters always makes me feel better, no matter how bad I am feeling.

After the meeting was over, I wasn't feeling blue anymore. However, now I was having tummy issues. A combination of tummy feelings but mostly just icky. I didn't have a morning snack and I hadn't had any water yet, so I thought that might be it. By the time I got home, I was feeling REALLY icky. So much so that I didn't even want any lovings from my honey ( at that point I was almost feeling like I was gonna lose my cookies, good thing my breakfast was well gone by then) I guzzled down some water and a banana while Tami made us a sandwich for lunch. After eating, I was hoping the icky would go away. It did, but it took a bit to go away.

As I am watching football, the icky goes away, but now it is replaced with me feeling blue again. WHAT IS GOING ON WITH ME????? Got up and did some squats and some wall pushups and then the kids came home from grandmas from baking all day with her. Tami made an excellent dinner including a nice fresh salad and roasted red potatos with broiled hanging tenderloin.

I am not feeling so blue now but now my tummy icky is coming back!! UUUUUUUUUUGH!! Maybe it's just one of those days when my body is just out of whack or something. But as I am sitting here feeling icky again, I can't stop thinking about my daddy who passed away in August. So maybe that is why I am blue and icky today, I don't know for sure. All I know is I want it to go away now.

Tomorrow it's back to our weekly routine, which means getting my butt up and kicked in the gym. Hopefully, my body gets out of its funk by then. But if not, I will kick it out with a major workout!! Have a great night all!!

    Br. I have not read all of your blogs, but did check out some and also your spark page. Reading your comments in today's blog make me wonder if you have had your blood sugars checked. Uncontrolled diabetes can have some really weird effects, including mood swings and physical malaise. If you haven't already, DO get checked.

    Hope you feel better today.

    Thats awful, I know the feeling. With my grandson gone till further notice, I periodically get those blue feelings. I have found though, that broccoli is definitely a mood booster, so I make sure that it is REGULARLY included in my weekly diet. I make a broccoli salad which I keep in the fridge for whenever I feel I need it. Oats is also good to boost the mood. Since its Monday today, I hope you feel better today, mood-wise and tummy-wise.

    I am sorry you were not feeling well. Remember the advice you gave me.. Just keep Swimming. I think we were all having a little bit of a rough weekend for one reason or another. At least we are all still here and moving!

    I'm sorry you had a blue and icky day. Ever since my mom passed away I find myself struggling with weird emotions around the holidays, the first couple of years were the hardest, so it's not surprising you are having extra emotions. Just a bit ago I woke up feeling out of sorts and more like my old pre Spark self Spark and it made me not want to do anything, but I forced myself to do a good long sweaty workout and it really helped to turn my mood around.

    I hope you get a great night of rest and tomorrow will prove to be a much better day for you. I'm in your corner cheering you on!

    emoticon I'm sorry you are feeling out of sorts today. If I had known (besides the icky tummy) I would have stayed downstairs with you so you weren't lonely.

    I love you! Hope tomorrow brings a brighter day for you. If not, we'll beat it out of you at the gym!
