Day 53: Top 10 Before and After - Number 8

Tonight the thought of the day is not photo related.  Tonight I think energy is number 8. My energy and general sense of cheer is so much higher. I have hit the gym 3 times in 2 days. I have survived without coffee. And I am even more of an optimist than ever before.

Before, things were getting progressively harder to manage. I was depressed, sort of, sometimes, or maybe just down on myself and on things in my life. If I put it in perspective, life was not bad, it was just routine and I fell into this funk. I was stressed at work, letting it get to me, and then just going through the motions at home. It was perpetual gray, a cloudy day they never ended. Hey, at least it wasn't raining, and I was never an Eeyore.

The after is this sense of light in my life. Eating pure, eating raw, is such a power trip...an energy trip. I come home and feel like doing stuff. I could actually have energy to go to the gym, go for a walk, or even clean the house. Shocking. It is amazing that carrying around all that extra baggage, physical and emotional, was enough to not want to do simple tasks like chores.

Today I am much more of a Tigger.

Breakfast: um, I forgot to have it since I was working from home.
Lunch - Strawberry Pineapple
