Keep making discoveries

I sometimes wonder why it's taken me so long to figure things out. But then for a large part of my life I lived very in the moment. While that's great to a point, it doesn't leave a lot of space for making the necessary connections. But I'm making them now and that's the important part.

So, what is this earth shaking discovery I've made?? I don't eat enough carbs. I eat tons of fruits and veggies, but I don't think these are necessarily enough. I made the connection today. Monday and Tuesday I worked out 2x a day - hard!! I ate well but I avoided carbs. By Wednesday I was exhausted. Initially I thought it was just the getting up early and staying up late. But that explanation didn't feel right because it was a real total exhaustion, not just lack of sleep tired. Wednesday I took it easy and felt a little better. But Thursday I had carbs. Some rice with lunch and some whole wheat pasta with dinner. Not a ton of the stuff, just 1 serving of each, but what a huge difference it made. Within an hour of lunch I was feeling energetic and peppy. After dinner I was positively brimming with energy. I stayed up last night with no problem and got up this morning with no problem at all. I need more carbs.

So now the work begins. I'm allergic to something, yeast, or wheat gluten or something, so I have to be careful what I eat. I can eat bread once in a while but not every day. Ugh!! I don't know what I'm going to do. Maybe I'll just go shopping for some weight loss pills

Happy New Year

So here it is. 2018. We had some friends over last night and it was fun. Thankfully, everyone left by 10 pm and we headed to bed by 11 pm...
