Energy, Energy….where is MY Energy!

The past number of weeks has been hectic...eventful....scary....and sad.  All of that and absolutely NO energy.....

We’ve had a few scares in the family… health issues....but since a lot of them are not my own, let’s just say we’ve had our share and more of cancer scares. Thankfully, all of those scares have turned out to be something other than cancer!!  It’s amazing how tough it is to watch others go through the testing and the WAITING for results.... I go through these things myself.... but to watch and be with other members of the family going through it....  I now know the scare from the other side!  I now know what Cindy has gone through waiting with me through my fight.

The weather has been HOT.... which I actually really like.... It makes it so I don’t always notice the ‘hot flashes’ that I am still having.... although, when I’m in the house and have one....WOW, does it get HOT!!!  The water just rolls off of me.... at least outside, the breeze cools me off...or at least makes it less noticeable.  Thankfully the last few nights have been cooling down enough that we get a break inside .... One of these days we’re going to break down and get air conditioning....

I’ve been trying to get out on the bike from time to time.... only a month until this years ride....and I have hardly any riding in.... I do get out almost every day for a good walk.... I love to take our dog Tessa out...we usually do an hour to an hour and a half on the week days....  But even that has been tough lately.... with the heat, she hates to do much.... but I know we both need it, so we go.  I’m usually exhausted by the time we’re done… Tessa is too....  Then my afternoon rides get put off because I need to recuperate..... That’s going to have to change.... If I don’t get some miles in on the bike I’m going to be hurting in September!!  I just wish I had the energy to do both a walk and a ride in the same day....  It just seems to take so long to get any energy back.... increasing my walks only makes me more tired....and SORE.... I never seem to build up any tolerance, strength or endurance.  My testosterone levels are supposedly going up… why isn’t my strength and energy increasing - even just a little???

Man, it’s starting to sound like I’m whining....  That’s gotta stop!!  We’ve been through a lot lately, but I’m still getting up in the morning.... I’m still able to do things I love.... I think I’ll just enjoy that and stop complaining.... 

We’re going into a long weekend… Enjoy!  I think I’m going to go for a few bike rides....maybe some walks.... nothing to strenuous....just FUN!!

Until next time....
