THE 2PM SLUMP AND THE MANY BUMS
You know those times in life when you just can't seem to catch your breath? One week rolls into another, sleep remains elusive, the groceries remain undone along with the sorting and exhaustion seems to follow you everywhere?
For me, those times have been frequent of late and I've been wondering how on earth i'm going to get through the next few weeks without falling like a heap on the floor. I've been taking solace in my morning coffee and evening piece (ehum, okay pieces) of chocolate but it would appear they're not doing me any favours.
To reduce the effects of the 2.30pm slump I've started adding a fresh fruit and vegetable juice* to the mix. Not only does it give the kids and I a reason to focus on a joint task (they help with the peeling, chopping and squishing) but it also provides us with a much needed energy boost.
Combine that with a fancy personal training program and I should be feeling pretty...ehum... energised come the warmth of Spring. With any luck I will have reduced my many bums, you know - the regular bum, the lower back bum, the side bum and the upper inner thigh bum that I have lovingly grown during my child baring years - down to just one bum! IMAGINE!
How are you travelling with the old exhaustion? Got any hot tips for keeping the energy levels up (please don't say 8 hours of unbroken sleep)?
Have a beautiful weekend my friends, I plan to!
*i'm not talking about one of those fancy 'leave all the nutrients in' juicers either. Just the average brevelle number that every man and his dog bought 8 years ago. I know you have one lurking in the pack of your cupboard- it's time to dig that sucker out!
