I am tired and rummy right now. I didn’t sleep well last night and have been on the go all day. I had hoped to take a nap as I do many work days. But I went to the lake just down the road from me and walked for 40 minutes instead. That helped me get through my evening class, but right after dinner, I lost all my energy. That is normally okay. My work day is done after dinner. But today, I am packing to take my grandkids to Disneyland. So I have three girls to wrangle and get off to bed all while I am trying to pack my bag, put together my purse and money, and think of something to write. This is the last thing that I am doing before going off to bed.
The exercising is going well. I don’t feel like I have to force myself to hike or do any of the other things that I do to try to get fit. I just find a space of time that is 30 minutes or longer to get after it. I feel better, but I really do like to exercise anyway. I just often think that I am too tired or too busy to exercise. I have begun wondering if I am tired because I say I am, or if I am tired and something is going on. This short week, I haven’t felt the same tiredness I had been dealing with for quite a while. In fact, today is the first to feel this way. So now I think that it is because I’m not active enough, and I am sluggish. I have often felt the rejuvenation effects and even the runners high from exercising, especially if it is fun or with someone I enjoy spending time with.
Today I am experiencing true tiredness. I am not focusing well and my body and mind are done for the day. I know that I had an active day and that I will sleep well. This is the way I would like to feel at the end of the day. This is a good tired. This is how I feel at the end of a long day of hiking.
*On a side note, I will be hand writing my posts for the next several days because I am going on vacation, and that to me means device free. I will type and post what I write when I get back. I am keeping to my 100 day challenge. Thanks for your support.
