And so it’s already Monday, and it’s already June. I’m in awe how time passes so quickly now! Dave’s 35th birthday is only a few short weeks away.
This will be my 6th day of my Amino Acids taking. This weekend I slacked on them because I didn’t work out. I didn’t not take them, I just didn’t take them all, the main one being Phenylalanine.
I took both GABA and Tryptophan last night, and I slept pretty well. I haven’t experienced this incredibly peaceful sleep like I took a double dose of Tylenol PM, but I’m definitely sleeping better than I was. I also only take 1 dose/pill of each amino daily. I don’t double up on anything or take more than once a day. I want to give it the full 30 days like I had previously said.
I have noticed an overall calming. I am not stressed. I am easygoing, accepting, happy, pleasant. I have sat on the patio with the dogs in the morning and/or afternoons more times this past week than I can remember ever doing before. I’m really enjoying my free time, but I’m still getting things done as I need to. I’m just not as stressed out about anything.
Workouts have been great. The phenylalanine/coffee/BCAA combo (spaced out about 30 min apart) before my workouts has worked really well. I feel good, energized, and not lethargic. I don’t even feel like complaining if I see something on the board like running. (very unusual.)
My mood; which has been the real kicker and true test has been great. So usually, right around this time of the month I should be experiencing like, the worst shit ever. Like “my life is over, why am I doing this, why do I bother, I hate all this hard work with no results, is this the right path for me, what am I doing wrong, why am I here, what is the point”. Yeah. It’s bad and I hate talking about it because the next day, I always think, Jesus Christ, Alicia. Keep your fucking mouth shut, you crazy bitch.
Well, none of that negative questioning has popped in my head this week. I’m sure circumstances play a large role too, but really, everything has been going well. Situations have just been good. I suppose by having a bad attitude, I can almost perpetuate the circumstances I mention above, too. Meaning, my good mood means a ‘bad situation’ is less likely to occur, meaning, I’m less likely to freak the fuck out and lose my mind.
I’ll take it. That’s all for now! There are still 14 hours in the day, so I suppose anything’s possible. 😀
