I am feeling bombed out and depleted (like Afghanistan). I just couldn't get comfortable. My breathing wasn't together at all. I really wanted to walk. I kept telling myself to slow down. So I did, but I didn't feel any better. I didn't even get a burst of energy with today's good music selection. Nothing helped.

I've been feeling like crap since Sunday night. I haven't had a good night's sleep since Saturday night. I haven't eaten much either. I forced myself to cook a pot of black beans yesterday, only because they were canned and I happened to have leftover rice. If that wasn't the case, I wouldn't have made anything. Did I mention that I lost 2lbs in the last couple of days? Yep, this month's period is just not agreeing with me. Right now, I'm typing with a headache and in desperate need of a nap. I hope I get it.

I really need to work some fruit and veggies into today's meal plan, but I'm just too tired to care. Maybe later...
