Remember when I predicted that my busy schedule would inevitably lead to a crash? Well, yesterday was the day.
On Saturday I spent the morning and early afternoon ferrying cats from store to store for my animal rescue group. Then I did my usual cleaning shift at the pet store, went to dinner, drank some coffee and stayed up late watching Being Human episodes with my husband.
I woke up at my usual time on Sunday (which is to say, way too early considering when I'd gone to bed), took the dog out, fed him, and went straight back to bed for another two hours.
When I got up the second time and made myself a breakfast shake, I had brief thoughts of doing something outdoors to take advantage of the lovely weather. Instead, I goofed around on my iPad until I got sleepy again and then went back to bed for another two hours or so.
The next time I woke up, I managed to at least drag myself up to my office, but I didn't get much accomplished. I stayed up until my husband woke up, thinking that we'd get some food, but forgetting that he was going over to a friend's house. Once he left, I went back to bed again for a third long nap.
Here's what my activity level looked like for the entire day:
The spike you see was when I finally woke up for the day and went outside to clean off the a/c units with the hose. That was followed by dinner and more TV watching which, as you can see, is more activity than pretty much the rest of the day combined. By the way, this is the lowest score I've ever gotten with my Nike+ Fuelband. And yes, I was wearing it all day long.
Fortunately I feel much more energetic today. I wasn't up for a long walk with the dog, but otherwise I'm feeling more or less back to normal. But I think some coffee is called for. Soon.
