So, yeah, that 3AM beeping by a child’s toy seems to have really messed me up. Â The alarm went off at 6AM, and I thought I was going to stay up, but next thing I knew it was 7AM and I didn’t feelÂ so zippy. Â Darn.
Getting ready for work feels like a chore, but I do get a lunch made (mostly the same as yesterday), haveÂ a few slices of bacon that the family has out as part of their breakfast and I grab a banana on the way out the door. Â Not the best start to the day. Â Interestingly enough, though, I don’t feel super hungry as I’m going about stuff to get out the door.
At work IÂ take my time eating the banana and sipping on my BP coffee through the morning. Â I make myself head out for another, longer run at lunch. Â A bit more effort than yesterday, but again, it’s not because my body is out of energy/carbs. Â I just haven’t been running consistently lately.
Lunch is almost a copy of yesterday (I’m thankful the Laura isÂ able to have groceries available to do this experiment)… which again, I take my time with as I attend a 1.5 hour meeting. Â I sip on Kombucha again, but that’s been a habit for the past six months, so nothing unusual there.
Nothing big to report in the afternoon, except that I definitely am feeling a bit run down and starting to develop a headache. Â I’m definitely a teeth grinder. Â Making music all of my life, part of it is a bad habit I’ve developed since childhood of making rhythm’s with my teeth. Â I don’t often realize I’m doing it. Â That, coupled with the fact that I’m clenching my jaw more because I don’t have things to munch on (even though I’m not hungry)… seem to be contributing to the ache. Â It doesn’t help that I think something is going on with a tooth… something I started to notice two weeks ago.
I’m home at about 6PM and have a simple, but good, dinner of organic beef (from our own pasture) and veggies. Â There’s some avocado and cucumber on the table too. Â The headache is a bit more bothersome, but it’s definitely tied to my tooth hurting too.
All ofÂ that aside, one thing that’s striking is that I am not ever actually “hungry” today… at least not in the way I’m used to. Â I continue to feel an urge to crunch on something (man, those pretzels keep calling me from the pantry)… but I’m not “hungry”. Â Just interesting.
