Either that or there is some major detox going on here. I basically FEEL okay, but my nose is running like a faucet, my ears are a little plugged up, and I have a slightly sore throat and very little energy. As well as I've been eating, I hope I'm just clearing stuff out, but since my best friend (I'll call her Anne for the purpose of the blog!) has been sick and now has a sinus infection, I'm not sure what I'm dealing with.
I fell asleep after 5 this morning, and woke up at 11, and in general I'm taking it easy, and will only do what I feel up to doing. Anne called me about 11am and asked if I had eggs. Yes. Do you have bread? Yes (wheat-free, yeast-free rye.) Can I come up for breakfast? Come on. So I made eggs and toast and we ate. And now she's asleep in my La-Z Boy again, curled up under an afghan, and looks so cute!
Last night I tried to go to bed at 3:30, and by 4:15 I got up and dried and put away the dishes, ate a small bowl of cereal (rice puffs or something with soy milk and blueberries), and then I felt tired enough to go to bed.
I was supposed to meet with a personal trainer at the gym today, but I just called and cancelled since I'm supposed to be there in about 30 minutes and I'm not even out of my jammies yet. I'm enjoying these last few days of freedom before I start work (possibly Friday!). I think I'll take a walk today and go to Starbucks and maybe go to the gym for a LIGHT workout later. I need to do something to get myself tired enough to get to bed at a reasonable hour for this upcoming week of training - I need to be able to get up in the mornings! If a whole lot of walking and other exercise doesn't do it, I may have to resort to melatonin. At least I won't have much trouble staying up all night once that shift starts!
