You don't write. You don't call...

I read once that if you don't update your blog for awhile, you shouldn't mention it because most people won't notice anyway and really, what's the point of another blog post that says, "I haven't blogged FOREVER!"?

But DANG!  I haven't blogged FOREVER!

What can I say?  I'm busy.  My job is busier from March until October than the rest of the year. 

Plus I don't have much to say.  Things are going pretty well.  My food and exercise has been great.  I'm still up from my lowest low, but all is well.  It will come off when it wants, I guess.  I'm not eating a super low-cal diet - definitely more of a maintenance diet so I am not surprised by the number on the scale.  I'm not overeating. 

I wonder, however, if you guys have any words of wisdom about being tired?  At my last physical, I think the doctor said something about a low potassium level which I see can cause lethargy.  The level was the low side of normal.  I'm thinking I need more bananas or something.  I spend my days yawning even though I get eight hours of sleep each night.  I always get up once or twice to pee, but I usually go back to sleep.  Sometimes I fall asleep while reading or watching TV and it will be like 9:15.  I get up at 6:30 or so (my alarm is set for 6:50, but I seldom sleep that late).  What do you think?

I have that exact problem. So, if you work it out, let me know. I am constantly without energy. I was thinking maybe thyroid problems? Dunno?

If you figure out this tired thing...please let me know. My head hits my desk more times than I would like during the day.

Part of the fatigue is just being a parent...I'll swear to that. It could be potassium or maybe a B12 thing?

My fatigue is due to sleep apnea.

Amanda, I came across your blog when I found a google image of Pedro from Napoleon Dynamite. Google directed me to you to ask for permission to use the image.
I'm doing a presentation for a middle school and am looking for an image like this to use in the discussion. Are you the person to give me permission to use it? Pr do you know who I need to contact?
