I need a warning label

Sunday, June 13, 2021

Good morning friends.. Today is a warning label day.. ugh.. less than 5 hours sleep last night and I am stupid tired and irritable.. no idea why I couldn't sleep.. Yesterday was a great day.

Early am #tullytime with an awesome workout.. brunch was leftover arugula, prosciutto and balsamic glaze pizza topped with an over easy egg.

Spent a good portion of the day creating and finalizing the must do things on our itinerary for vacation later this week.

Dinner was chicken fajitas in low carb wraps, hopped on the treadmill for the 5k for A Walk to Believe, said no to the "You want some ice cream?" offer, caught up on some Law and Order SVU episodes.

Then it was time for bed and I just could not sleep. My mind would not turn off until close to 2am.. then the dang alarm went off at 6am.. I quickly shut it and was able to go back out for an hour.. but by 7am that was it...

So here I am, bible reflection done, but I'd be lying if I said it was fully absorbed.. my brain feels like it can't take in information at the moment...went to my inbox and it was overflowing with alerts from the new google account... I set up a filter, but that just doubled the emails.. one in the inbox, one in the filter.. After some fumbling I figured out how to make it go to a sub list only under forums..

Now I feel like I've used up all my ability to think for the day.. I know it isn't true, but I'm exhausted. So my plan is to get on a 9am WW zoom call and walk in the neighborhood instead of the treadmill. Hoping some fresh air will give me some added energy.

I'm thinking of 10am mass maybe.. since I'll be out walking I can go directly to mass after the zoom call and come home from there. Only going to be 75 today, but that is a nice temp to try to grab an early nap in the pool perhaps.

My mind is in a loop that if I am out of whack today it will propel into the rest of my week if I do not get in front of it. So I need to take steps to position myself for success. hmmm seems like I heard those words somewhere recently 😎

Haven't thought about food at all, which could go either way.. not hungry at all, or reaching for anything and everything. Pretty sure there is some 96% lean ground beef or steak in my future today.

Well, I'm going to run.. going to try to get a few more minutes of quiet time before I set my plan in motion. Have a great day! Namaste.

    What a great plan to get in front of. Naps are always a good way to catch up.

    I had a few days where I woke up just so tired with brain fog the whole day. Next time I will get in front of it.

    Frustrating when the body is tired but the brain won't shut off. Hope today is a better day.

    I hate it when my brain keeps hopping from one topic to another like a flea at a dog show..
    and keeping me awake when all the rest of me is more than ready to sleep.
    I trick I have used successfully (but it doesn't always work)
    I start describing a scene down to the most minute detail..
    like I am setting a scene in a movie or book or describing a painting..
    by corralling my brain on one topic it lets me relax and fall asleep.
    Sometimes all it takes is a glass of nice cold milk. I know they say warm but ugh to warm milk.
    Have a great Sunday.. and a fun vacation.

    Sounds like you are all wired up with things on your mind. Take a day off - have a nap. You are allowed a down day once in a while.
