What Things Give You Energy?

When I'm working outdoors in the Summer, I often stop for a few minutes and pick a half dozen Grape Tomatoes from my garden. A quick rinse with the hose, a couple minutes to snack on these little jewels, a drink of cold water, and I'm ready to go again. There is something about these small fresh tomatoes that quickly boosts my energy.

If everything goes perfect the night before...
So...
A Great Dinner...
A Joint for dessert
At least an 8-hour sleep (which seldom happens)
Wake up, see the sun, admire our property, play with the boys (Lennie & Carl) and my Grandson who I will see in the morning, cuz he's having his first sleepover...
# to 5 cups of coffee, breakfast, check-in here... and the day begins with some pretty good energy...

Who would have known about Grape Tomatoes! I get them at the store at times and put them in a salad or eat them alone.

Dark sweet cherries do it for me. If I eat about a dozen of them with a bottle of Deer Park, then in about 20 minutes I can run my 2 miles in about 15 minutes. (I may be exaggerating just a wee bit.)

I’m not naturally energetic I’m actually sedentary by nature. But when I do need to get up and go I find that eating less is very helpful and also reducing the amount of the fat in my diet and eating low fat protein is also super important for me. And a great nights sleep is critical! ZZZZZZZZZ

A cool day. I am not a fan of summertime. Heat and humidity are enervating to me. This last weekend was atrocious - heat index neat 110°F.

Heat makes me tired. Winter time I have tons of energy. Visiting with friends gives me lots of energy, then when they are gone I am happy to quietly relax.
