Rambling…dumping my brain…

Tired……lethargic is more the word.  I have discovered that my body is reacting terribly to my adding carbs back into my system.  I literally have NO ENERGY in the morning.  Since the family is complete with the husband being home it has put a monkey wrench in my plans.  I always slept better when I worked out in the evenings and had energy in the morning.  I have been missing workouts because I tried to change them to first thing in the morning.  This is proving to be difficult since it is HARD to wake up before 5AM.  So I guess it is working out in the evenings for me again.  I have a DVD player on my computer and a big enough screen so instead of displacing the family from my family area I will just sweat with Billy in the computer area.  I also noticed I don’t sweat like I normally do at 0430 in the morning.  My body is actually still sleeping at that time of the morning.  I laugh because I feel like I am doing Sleepwalking Taebo…too funny.  I need the sweating…I feel like I am actually doing something. 
Starting my 21 Day Challenge to get me back into the habit of working out daily.  I have to stop being lazy…
I have also noticed that as soon as I say I am Low Carbing people insist on giving me things made out of starch.  I told a soldier…I am on a special diet right now.  So…he goes and he makes me some Lumpia.  NOTHING low carb about this eggroll.  I am getting back to just being outright rude and not eating the food that is put in front of me.  If I say I am on a special diet don’t try to give me something that will derail me.  I know it has veggies and some meat but it is wrapped in starch and fried.  Can’t do it…and I like the clothes that I have.  I do not want to go and buy new things because I am puffing up like a blowfish.
My husband says that I should blame him for the pause in my routine.  It is nice to have him home and have the company.   But I am so past blaming everything and everyone for my lack of exercise.  He isn’t putting me in a chair and tying me up.  I am the one looking at the DVDs and whining about being too tired.  It is way easier to make myself a drink and watch television…I don’t have to change clothes at all.  🙂  I will also start cooking more stuff that I can eat and if the kids and the spouse INSIST on a starch it can be easily added.  My husband claims that low carbing doesn’t work…that we all need carbs.  THAT pissed me off because I am standing there as PROOF that it works.  It is really irritating to me when people who have never ever had a weight problem (like him) and then age hits them…they gain weight and then become an expert.  Obviously what you are doing isn’t working (a snack of beer and Goldfish Crackers to watch the game…while I am eating wings that I made…you are sleepy and cranky and I have energy…wonder why) so maybe lets try my way of eating and see what happens.  Sigh…
Anyhoo…had to dump this so I can get back to my routine.  This time around it is for maintaining and tightening up the body.  Just need energy again, not weight loss…
