Did Someone Say “NAP TIME”

I have been off my game this week – not sure why.  I have exercised each day – but not like I was during my challenge – we did travel a lot last weekend (driving to Ashville, NC and back) but still….I hate not having any energy.  Too much to do.  I have been on the go from morning until eve. for quit awhile now I know,  yet usually this doenst effect me.

How do you stay energized?

I eat fairly well.  Giving into my sugar cravings only a little – LOL
 
 try and go to sleep at decent times each night 10:30 or so but today its barely 1:30 in the afternoon and I am gonna take a nap!  Maybe listen to a motivation/ relaxation tape on my iPad – yeah – back in a while folks….. lets hope this works.  Below are the Bella Notte Linens that cover my comfy cozy bed – the same dark cool relaxing colors.

What the…..WOW – my body was tired I didn’t take a nap, I was down.  I slept for almost two hours.  I felt like Rip Van Winkle.  LOL  Sometimes I guess you have to just do what your body wants and mine wanted so sleep.  Hmmm not sure what to do it’s 3:45 pm and I was supposed to film a steak video and take pictures downtown – ummm guess that’s not happening.

However Sonya the beautiful bride that I have the pleasure of doing a 2nd run through with tomorrow will be happy I am rested and ready to go.  Plus I have a lot to prepare for Halloween.  I am fortunate enough to put things on the back burner sometimes….. except dinner.  Below is a fast dinner I want to share!  Cheers!
