It was just a couple of days ago that I realized my energy levels were up. Seriously up. Like crazy, haven't been this energetic in a long, long time up. I have not had a nap after work since Tuesday, and that was only like 10 minutes. I made it to Crossfit Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday - yay me!!!! I got up every day at 4 am and did a little work on my dissertation. It was a super good week and my energy levels are just amazing. Not sure if it is because I'm actually eating instead of starving myself or if it's the Advocare and I don't care. I love having this energy. When I lay down to rest, it is just to rest. Yesterday I think I dozed for about 20 minutes. See that is okay. Sleeping a drugged sleep for an hour or more is not okay. So I'm feeling pretty darn amazing. My feet are not hurting - finally - and I'm generally feeling like a rock star. When I started this nutrition challenge, I really thought that I wanted to lose weight. And I do, but I have discovered it is not my primary goal. When I started feeling so good this week, things started to click into place. I was able to get up in the mornings and get things done. I was able to get to my workouts and feel good about them. I had the energy to power through my day. My energy levels in 4th period are now the same as my energy levels in 1st period. This is what I wanted. I do want to lose weight, but more importantly, I want to feel like my normal, energetic self. And I'm beginning to feel that way. I know if I just eat right, well eat, and workout, the weight loss will come. It's when I feel so crappy and tired that it seems nothing works. So I'm pumped and feeling amazing and ready to rock and roll.
Now, I just need to figure out how I'm going to pay Walden and I'm all good. We have the money, it's just that I'm spending too much. I need to reign that in and start making payments to Walden. That is like the only thing holding me back and weighing on me. Everything else is taken care of. Once I get that sorted out, things will be hunky dory. So I need to work on that this week. No worries, I will get it figured out.
Okay, feeling good and it's going to be a good day. I have my to-do list and I'm ready to rock. I have noticed that if I do not have a to-do list for the day, I tend to not get much done. So, right now I'm going to prep my planner for the week and then start working on my to-do list.
