Seriously, y’all rock. The comments, the energy, the well wishes – it goes far and means the world.
All the rainy Monday weather paid off on my late drive home yesterday. Not everyday you see a rainbow, or a double rainbow, or the largest rainbow you’ve ever seen. Alas, no lucky charms, leprechaun or Keebler Elves.
I have been unusually anxious since Sunday. I’ve been wired when I should be pooped. I haven’t been sleeping well at all. Andrew clearly isn’t having this issue. I whispered to him last night as he was about to nod off, “There’s an 18 week half Ironman training plan on the counter. We need to start in March.”
For a few who may be paying attention, remember when I reinstated my “no sugar” FitSugar “Give It Up For the Get Fit For 2010 Challenge? I am happy this time to report that I am kicking that contest’s a**. I did have froyo as pre-race prep but I refuse to break tradition there.
The no-sugar shakedown: The first 3 – 4 days were brutal. I think I had side effects of no sugar that I didn’t realize, such as crankiness and headaches. After that hump, I can look at candy corn and not feel the need to immediately devour. The days I stay sugar and dessert free I have more energy, happier, etc.
