Middle-age apathy?

I’ve been outta sorts since returning from my 2-week vacation.

  • I’ve completely blown my Keto/carnivore diet …. pizza, ice cream, potatoes, bread … all consumed on vacation and I seem unable or unwilling to go back to my strict way of eating
  • I’ve been drinking more vodka than ever —- we hardly drank anything during vacation, with the exception of a margarita here and there or wine.
  • I have been having continued stomach issues.  During vacation, I started having, well, ISSUES …. ok, poop issues.  There it is. And a very unsettled stomach.  I chalked it up to changes in diet/water/altitude/etc.  It’s better this week, finally.
  • I can’t sleep worth shit (most likely, see above).  I’m unhappy with my pillows.  I can’t get comfortable.  Too hot.  Too cold.  The cat licks my hand/arm at 2am.
  • I feel like doing NOTHING.  The apathy is staggering.

I dunno, vacay doldrums?  The food/drinking shit has GOT to stop.  I’m sure the bowel and sleep issues will resolve somewhat if I get my act together.  I’ve gained some weight back, as I can see more of my belly (aka tractor tire).  And I don’t wanna talk to or be around family, either.  Probably too much family togetherness (2 weeks straight with my sister, then father’s day).

I know, right??!! WAH WAH WAH, woe is me.  This BLAH-ness happens now and again to me, as it probably does to most people.  I’ll shake it off, eventually.

  1. Hormones suck. Give yourself some time to readjust post vacation, drink extra water, maybe take a good probiotic pill or yogurt and it’ll get better. Maybe. I don’t know, I’m no expert. I just know this: middle age is not for wimps. 🙃
