I am so glad this is a four day weekend for me. I am just not doing well. It's so weird because I didn't feel as if I was overdoing it or pushing myself while we were on vacation, but now I don't seem to be bouncing back very fast.

I guess the excitement of the trip was hard on my adrenals.

And I was thinking tonight maybe I'm feeling so tired because I have had a couple of teaspoons of honey [affiliate link] in the last couple of days.

I'd decided earlier today that I need to stop eating fruit again. The reasons? Well, I lose weight more quickly when I go off fruit, because it seems to make me feel hungrier than when I don't eat fruit.

On the other hand, if I lose weight slowly, it will give my skin time to shrink back to fit my body growing smaller.

I don't want to have a ton of hanging skin when this is over.

Sounds rather vain of me to say that.

I have been so tired this weekend. I am napping every day, and even now I wish I was in bed, but I have a website gone down and I have to figure out why it is broken. I am also waiting for my younger son to come home from his weekend vacation at a hotel. He lost his gate key a week or two ago and now he can't get into the yard unless one of us let him in.

I'd been in bed before he called to say he was coming home.

When I got up, I decided I was going to have a banana blended in with some of my leftover frozen cashew ice cream, and a dollop of peanut butter [affiliate link], with some vanilla [affiliate link].

Very smooth and tasty and delicious. And now I'm tireder than ever and my stomach kind of hurts. Guess that was a stupid thing to do to myself. Thank goodness I don't have to work tomorrow.

Okay, I'm going to try to concentrate on this other thing I need to fix.

  1. Darn those adrenals. Just when you think you have them licked they come back to kick you in the behind.
    Everything I’ve read/researched about Adrenal Fatigue indicates the last symptom to be resolved will be energy.
    I guess things didn’t get out-of-whack over night, so we can’t expect them to be fixed quickly.
    At least you are seeing a light at the end of your tunnel now. You have more good days then bad. It inspires me to keep on truckin’ 🙂

  2. Hi Kellycat: You are so right, thank you for this timely reminder. I *am* having more good days than bad. These past couple of weeks have just been a great reminder of how I used to feel ALL OF THE TIME. I really didn’t feel like I was taxing myself all that hard while we were on vacation, but I know in the past I probably would have had to take two days off and stayed in bed for most of those two days just to recuperate. Thank you again.

  3. I was feeling more energetic after three months on gaps.. Now for the last 3 weeks I’ve been tiiiirrrreeeeddd… sleeping 9 or 10 hours a night, plus naps. I’m right there with ya. I suppose it’s 2 steps forward, 1 step back…

  4. Hi Churyl, I’m still feeling tired. My husband has been tired lately, too. I hope you are feeling less tired soon, and me, too!
