This morning I could tell my energy level was little to none. I’m not sure what my problem is, but for the past two days all I feel like doing is napping. I haven’t, but that’s how tired I am.
My morning started out like most… I had a green monster for breakfast. I used the last of the bananas, so tomorrow I will have to come up with a different breakfast.
I took Justine to school, came home and circled my house about 50 times trying to figure out what I wanted to do. Truth is I didn’t want to do anything.
Maybe I’ve had so many productive days lately that’s it worn me out.
Or maybe it’s the fact that I go to the doctor this afternoon to get the results of my blood work I got done last week. I always get nervous when it comes to doctors.
Maybe it’s because I haven’t had my coffee this morning. I made a cup and then decided to let it get cold so I can make some iced coffee before I leave today.
Or maybe it’s just one of those days.
Even though I didn’t want to I got out my exercise equipment, put the DVD on and started working out. But when I was only 10 minutes into the workout and my arms felt like they couldn’t move and my feet were glued to the floor I decided today needs to be a rest day. I don’t like rest days right now, because I feel like tomorrow I could do the same thing. But at least I put the effort in and tried.
Whatever the cause of my sleepiness is… I don’t like it. I like feeling like I have energy. I like getting things done. I like getting my exercising in.
I did get my food for work ready.
For snack I packed some raspberry yogurt with coconut granola. That stuff is amazing. I look forward to snack time just so I can eat that granola. If you haven’t made it, I suggest that you make it now. I’ll understand if you stop reading my blog right now to go make it.
I think I can honestly say that this is the best granola I have ever had.
Saturday after I got home from the wine festival I decided to get some barbecue for the place up the street from my house. I think I’m addicted. There bbq chicken, baked beans, greens… everything is so good. Plus I’ll have meals for a few days afterwards. Dinner tonight, of course, will be bbq.
Doesn’t that look good?? The mac and cheese is leftovers that I’m trying to use up. I honestly can’t wait for dinner.
I had a question about the Jay Robb nutritional stats so I just wanted to answer that. I don’t have the cashew-coconut one anymore but I do have peanut butter and a brownie one so I’m going to use those. They seem pretty close together.
1 bar has:
11 grams fat
2 sugar alcohol
I hope that helps. I’ll be letting you know how the other flavors taste as soon as I try them.
What do you do when your energy seems little to none?
