On Tuesday morning we usually go for a run, but headed to the golf course instead. I walk and carry my clubs too, so it is a bit of a workout, albeit a very fun and enjoyable one. I did score one Birdie, too, on a par 3 hole.
I guess golf is more of a PLAYout really. Then we ate the picnic lunch I packed before we spent some time on the putting green in practice and a few games, too. I came home quite tired but happy. It was such a beautiful day and with all the kids back in school, and on a weekday morning, we practically had the course to ourselves. Gotta love that!
Wednesday morning found us heading out for a run before breakfast. We did a fairly speedy little 5 km around the neighborhood… then ate and went for a walk to the village centre to buy some groceries. After putting them away we changed into our swimsuits and headed out to the pool. I put in about 15 minutes of real swimming before some play and splash time.
I was ravenous for my lunch… and spent the afternoon doing some paperwork and getting ready to head to a 2 hour staff gathering in the evening. There were lots of people there that I hadn't met before I came home quite energized and it was quite late before I was able to relax enough to turn in for the night.
This morning we went for a half hour walk along the Strait before The Captain cooked me breakfast and I got ready for work. Right now I am home, between meetings… will be heading out again for a second shift in a bout an hour that will last till about 7 p.m.
I keep expecting to CRASH… for all the activity to catch up with me… but I seem to have boundless energy and I have been thinking about why. What is the reason for it?
And I have come to the conclusion it is because I have been eating so clean lately… and watching my portion sizes. No snacking here and there, just real meals. And lots and lots of water.
When I don’t eat grains, or dairy (other than whey protein powder) or added sugars, or drink alcohol, I sleep like a LOG. And I am sure that the clean eats and the fabulous restful and restorative sleep that I have been getting, is giving me all the pep.
And I have to say I am feeling great… guess I should keep it up for a while!
I am still working through Chalene Johnson’s PUSH book, and today am looking at SUCCESSORIZING for weight loss. I have lots of opinions about this topic… perhaps I will write about it soon.
