Please excuse my absence...........

I have been absent. I have been reading about everyone though.

So here's a note from my doctor: "Please excuse Cheri's absence. Her life is overwwhelming."

First off, I am on a weight loss seesaw - down 2 up 2 down .5 up 1 down 1.5 .......... You get the picture. I am making many "carb comfort food" choice right now. Not the best for losing weight.

Also, I am wondering if I might be suffering from exhaustion. Is that a medical condition? Is there such a thing? If so, what are the symptoms and how is it treated? I sleep all night but I wake up tired. I yawn all the time. No, I do not have sleep apnea. I feel I just push myself all the time just doing what needs to be done. Work, housework, grocery shopping, laundry, Hubby's normal needs and additional needs due to his knee replacement, our dog, bills, money, family, car maintenance, doctor appointments, driving Hubby (he cannot drive due to his disability)

I go to see Dr G today for a check up and fill. I just might talk to him.

I don't know about you but the heat here in Phoenix makes me more tired than allergies make me feel like a little bit of a cold!

Too many carbs make me sleepy and lazy. Maybe more protein would help? Do you like Greek yogurt? :)

My sister in law feels the same way a lot and she has some sort of condition where her body's adrenal glands are out of wack. I dont know the name but I think talking to your doc is definetly a good idea!

I suggest tons more water, and more protein. I find myself gravitating toward crappy carb choices when I'm too busy and stressed, and they make me feel tired.
I also add lots of spinach to my protein shake in the morning when I'm feeling run down. If you add frozen blueberries then the shake won't be green, it'll be a pretty purple!
