Buff but bummed
So why oh why am I spending the REST of my days in sleep or sluggish brain death? I should be getting peppier as I go, as I lose weight, gain muscle - but instead I slump and collapse after lunch, sleep for hours, wake for dinner, sleep more.
And worse, despite the muscles, lifting groceries is still so difficult. Doing housework seems beyond me.
I know my body is getting in shape, but something in it isn't getting the memo. Although I can see slight improvements to stamina, I'd expect more after 30-60 minutes of exercise almost every day for weeks.
All I can hope for is that with cooler weather, all this work will show. And nap to extremes now.
