Insane amounts of energy

So, before I started losing weight I could sleep and nap away entire days. I had no energy. None. I've always been a morning person and getting out of bed in the morning has never been a problem, but after a few hours I was ready for a nap. 

I could just nap the days away. I would lay there thinking of all the things I had to do, but I had no energy to get my ass off the couch. I would make lists in my head and tell myself I would do it later, after my nap. 

I would move from napping on the couch to sleeping in my bed. I spent a lot of days like that. 

It did change over time. I knew that I was really dedicated to what I was doing when I had a bad day at work, I was tired, and I just wanted to lay on the couch, nap, and hate the world. Janelle called to ask if I was going to the gym with her. All I really wanted to do was lay there and be miserable, but I made myself get up, change, and go to the gym. I felt so much better after that. The day that happened I knew I had made a huge stride in my life. 

Now I can hardly nap. If I lay down to nap I can typically fall asleep for like 20 minutes, then I'm up. Most times I can't even fall asleep! 

I know I shouldn't complain, but I do miss my napping. I do miss lazy Sunday's on the couch. 

However, I do get a ton of stuff done every day. Since it's not working out for me to lay on my couch I might as well get some crap done. I swear, I'm always on the go. I always have something to do. 


  1. Sounds like I need to get back into my workouts since I'm dragging every single day lately. I love me a good nap though!

  2. I have too much energy too and that is keeping me from recovering because I am always up and about instead of resting. :)
