First Day Thriving

On my 'Thrive Experience' today:

The first day - got up at the crack of 10am (I went to sleep at 3am), took an energy capsule, waited for 30 minutes, then had a really delicious shake (protein/vitamin shakes have definitely improved from the 80s and 90s!) Showered and ready for the day, put on the derma patches, and now we're going to see where it goes.

It's not so much that I 'woke up' and became focused when I got up this morning (being I just had 7 hours of sleep), but the main hurdle today will be whether or not I want to take a nap today.

Typically, after I get up - anywhere within an hour or two - I want to go back to sleep... "Take my morning nap." It'll get so bad that I won't be able to keep my eyes open. And lord help me if I actually ate breakfast! Anytime I eat, I get so tired. So then I don't eat because I need to keep my eyes open so I can get stuff done. Eat breakfast = nap time. Eat lunch = nap time. Thankfully dinner time is close to bedtime. Also, whenever I eat, my body temp drops - I'm freezing just by eating. Now you know why I don't like to eat.

And the other weird thing my body has been doing for the past year or so: Whenever I eat, then my body goes into overdrive for the feeling of starvation. I can literally pack away an entire Thanksgiving meal, and then my stomach will start growling and the hunger pangs will show up at 10000%. Obviously, I'm not going to eat more, but it's a real pain in the gut! :-/

So far, I've been up for 3 hours and have not wanted a nap. Let's see if I can get through the day without the extreme urge to crawl back into bed for a little (2 to 4 hour) nap.

Seriously. Ask anyone I know, and they'll tell you I nap ALL OF THE TIME. Or if I can't nap, I'm wishing I was napping.

Alright - back to work... ;-)
