Why am I dragging?
I woke up and had a cup of green tea in the morning,then a cup of earl grey in the afternoon, and right now I am sipping on a foamy cup of ginseng.
Nothing sounds better than a cup of coffee right now…
If I only had a cup of coffee I would have focus and energy and things would make sense. I would not drag through my days and depend on multiple naps… Life would make sense!
I also know that I do not want to awaken that beast again because I honestly do not handle high levels of caffeine well and I love how my waistline is shrinking and my wallet’s waistline is maintaining. If I were to hop on to that lovely coffee train again my wallet would shrink too and more than I want it to.
So what do I do when I don’t know what to do? I write a blog post about my problems to talk it all out, of course!
I think there are more reasons to why I am dragging like the fact that this is Day #6 of intermittent fasting. My body must be adjusting. I really hope that it acclimates soon!
I probably need more water too. Sometimes I forget that tea is not a substitute for water. The good news is that I have been cutting the drive thru’s out just like I wanted to. Another reason why giving up coffee is a good thing. I depend on drive thru’s when I need my coffee fix.
Additionally, I did a lot of cardio this week. There were at least 2 days where I took double Zumba / dance classes and I am sure that affects my energy level as much as I love those classes.
When my energy is low like it is today, it makes me feel like something is wrong even though everything is okay.
I miss the way that coffee makes me feel hyped up and excited about life, but I also want to learn how to be naturally energetic and productive.
I think it is time for me to start journaling more and to dig into my library of self-help books so that I can feel more optimistic again.
I am going to a Zumba party at my gym in about an hour and I even have a costume. Hopefully that will help me find my sparkle again!
Do you drink coffee? If not, how do you stay energized? Comment below to share!
