I don't know if it's the weather (so stinking cold again) or allergies/sinus pressure or what, but I have had low energy since last weekend. Could have a little to do with the fact that I don't see Elliot much anymore. His smile brightens my day, and I like to imagine it's just for me. With my lower energy level I have noticed myself wanting to eat junk for a perceived quick boost. Over the weekend we ate out two times again, and I had wine. Then yesterday was my husband's birthday so I had a piece of cheesecake with my family. It tasted so good-my first real sugar-laiden treat since starting back on South Beach. I was worried that it'd trigger sugar cravings but it only caused an aweful feeling in my gut and the too-sweet shudders. We went for a walk afterword, but I was not in the mood. My hips began hurting early into the walk and the brisk wind was a little uncomfortable.
Today I was in a great mood. I felt well-rested and my hair turned out good, I even had some sales for the first time in a while. But it was the girl doing the pickup again. Boo. When I got home, I laced up my shoes and hit the pavement with my husband. Again, my hips began hurting fairly early in the walk. I will have to figure that whole thing out. I may have to switch activities while I sort things out. I know I have to get more stretching in and strength training. All in good time!
Falling asleep as I type this, gonna go catch some zzzzz's. Tomorrow is another day, and one day closer to the weekend!
