Energy, How do you get yours?

Today was the beginning of a three day weekend for me.  I have a race on Sunday (the one I have been talking about in my training blogs) so I have Sunday off.  I was thinking I would sleep in a little and then get up and go do yoga.  But the energy was not there.  Oddly enough it wasn’t even there to sleep in.  I know I am weird that I don’t have energy to sleep in.  So I decided to get dressed and go have lunch with my other half, but first I would run some errands, that is when the strangest thing happened to me.

I was in Dick’s sporting goods when some random guy came walking past me, looked me in the eyes and said, “You work too hard.”  I didn’t know what to make of this, in fact I laughed it off.  I was however wondering if this was just a crazy event and I should not read too much into it or if it was someone trying to tell me something.  It kept sticking out in my mind.

At lunch I asked my other half what he thought of it.  He told me that I do look tired.  Not exactly what a girl wants to hear but sometimes the truth hurts.

So I spent the afternoon trying to figure out how to get more energy and not look tired.  My solution was cleaning the house and doing the laundry.  Not sure it helped the not looking tired part but I did have a lot of energy and got a lot of stuff done.

I guess that is where I get my energy, cleaning.  Sounds crazy but I guess it is true.  Now I need to work on the looking tired part.  Hopefully I just need to make some changes in my life and figure out some better balance in order to get that back on track.
