Yes… It is…

Words for the day.  Hunger and energy.

Yes, I know.  I’m trying to lose weight.  I “should” be at least a little hungry because I’m not constantly cramming my pie hole.  I also know that this eventually gets better as my body adapts.  But the whole energy thing is a bit unsettling.

For instance, this morning it is 20 degrees outside, and it is snowing sideways at the moment.  I was supposed to run with the group at 5:30am but I can’t get out of my driveway.  One would think that I should celebrate this moment with an hour or two of glorious, extra sleep.

no…  I get up and pace because I can’t sleep.

Last night I had the opportunity to relax and do nothing.  I had my swim yesterday morning so I had fulfilled my workout obligation to myself for the day.  Did I relax, watch a movie and eat popcorn?

no…  I wandered around the house, picking up things and looking at them or staring out the window until I finally just gave up and went to the gym.  A half hour on a recumbent and some core work finally settled me down.

I know this is all part of it.  Losing weight, burning calories, body adjustments, etc.  I’m just trying not to drive myself and/or family and friends crazy in the mean time.

I can also see that this year will be full of challenges for me.  It’s only two weeks old and I’m already dealing with big changes at work, money issues and personal challenges (good ones, but still…).  Keeping that positive attitude will be critical.  I’m going in the right direction.  I have a great family and friends.  Life is good.
