With being off work this weekend, I noticed something. Usually, I will want a long nap on Saturday and Sunday. Even with working out for 30 minutes yesterday morning, my afternoon nap time was just falling asleep long enough to start dreaming, then I woke up and was ready to go again.
Today, I woke up at 5:00 and couldn’t get back to sleep. I think perhaps I was too excited about teaching class this morning! Anyway, I came home, feeling like I needed a nap. I did the same thing as yesterday — just nodded off, woke up and was energized again. I got up and did a 50 minute Turbo Jam workout. It felt great!
I think the change in the weather here has done wonders for my energy level, not to mention feeling a sense of joy in my heart, even in the midst of still going the grieving process. I broke down and cried again last night over missing my brother, but my tears didn’t last long. It will be interesting to see how I do tomorrow — it will mark 19 years since my miscarriage.
Since we are supposed to get rain overnight, I’m hoping it will improve the pollen count so that I can go for a long walk when I get home from work.
