Energy is a vicious cycle. I have none most of the time. As a 50 year old mom of a 10 year old, I find it harder and harder to keep up. I don’t drink coffee either. If I did, I would guzzle it by the gallon I suspect. I drink a smoothie and an Energy drink every morning. Not one of those crazy Red Bulls, it’s a natural energy drink mix with a very small amount of caffeine, that I mix with orange juice. Gives me just enough to wake me up. My real energy comes from working out. However, today I was too tired to go to the gym, even though I know it would have given me energy. Here is the vicious cycle I’m talking about. I was too tired to drive myself to the gym, even though I know it would have given me energy. Now I’m going to spend the whole day tired. I really just want to take a nap, but I’m not a napper. Once I’m up, I’m up for the day. Plus, if I lay down, a whole host of “stuff” starts running through my head and I can’t fall asleep anyhow, so what’s the point? Tomorrow is my “day off”. The hubby takes the kiddo to school and picks her up. No driving for me. Yippee! Maybe tomorrow there will be energy to spare.
