Day 66: Been Exhausted

Saturday, February 15, 2020

I worked so hard this week that yesterday I was just exhausted and really didn't accomplish anything. I am working on getting back in the swing of things now, now that I have caught up on sleep and rested my brain a little bit. I have a lot of things to catch up on so this coming week is going to be another busy one.

Haven't been exercising lately, but it's something I want to get back to doing. We stopped at Dollar General yesterday and I saw some ankle weights there that I want to buy that I need for certain chair exercises that I do so I will be saving up for those. They no longer have pushup bars there, so I will have to look for those online I guess.

I haven't been tracking my food lately and it seems to be working better for me. I've noticed that whenever I don't track my food I seem to do better. I have lost almost 5 pounds since I stopped tracking and when I initially lost all that weight, I wasn't tracking then either. It was when I started tracking that I started having problems with my weight. So I'm going to do intuitive eating for a while and see how that goes.

Going to get back to meditating today. Have been pretty off track with everything lately as I've pretty much just been resting. I was in a lot of pain in my ribs and that didn't help anything. Meditating will help me to get some clarity and focus back, though.

Haven't done any reading lately but plan on at least reading my Breakout Novel book. I found a new book that I want to buy as soon as I've got some money. It's a guide to the publishing business. All my publishing reference books are about 20 years old so it would be good to have an updated one.

In dire need of listening to some podcasts, as well. Just need to catch up on everything.

Sunday is my next nonsmoking day. We'll see how that goes.

More apt to drink water right now as I'm feeling particularly thirsty.

My science fiction story got rejected so I sent it to another magazine and waiting to hear back on that now. I worked more on my outline but haven't been doing any writing for the past couple of days either. Going to get back to it this morning and see if I can maybe finish the outline.

That's all for now.

    Sorry about your novel, but onto the next publisher. Fingers crossed.

    And do hope you feel better!

    It's interesting that you're losing weight now that you've stopped tracking. Can you think of a reason why this is happening? For me - I lose weight when I'm not tracking too, but it's because I lose interest in food. I actually get annoyed by it, so I mostly stop eating and get interested in lots of other things. This, of course, is not healthy. So,make sure you're not simply distracted by life and negating your nutrition. Without tracking, I actually have to put myself on a feeding schedule - just like you would do for an infant who wasn't thriving. It's a delicate balance, but everybody is different. Take care. emoticon
