What's the deal?

I woke up at 5am this morning. An hour later than yesterday...I guess that is an improvement? Does it even matter since I still feel like crap? I did get 9 hours of sleep, which always makes me feel good, but no such luck. I don't ever remember jet lag affecting me like this is. What is going on? I've come up with a few theories:

1. I don't really have to get back on a normal schedule since I don't have a job. Nothing is forcing me to get back into a routine which allows me the flexibility to do whatever I want. I'm not sure if that really is a good thing.

2. I am older. I really don't want to believe that this could be it...moving on.

3. My body is pissed that I'm sleeping when I'm supposed to be eating and vice versa. I'm really hoping that is the reason I have been feeling ill after eating each meal, and the reason I have no appetite. Last night when I was trying to think about what to eat for dinner my body thought I was joking. 'It's 2am in the morning! You can't eat right now!' is all I heard. It won that fight and all I had was a small bowl of Mexican rice and then passed out on the couch. Body is in the lead 1-0.

4. I am going through MAJOR food withdrawals. How can my body cope when I've just started this horrid, disgusting, unwanted detox? I really can't blame it.

I was having cappiccinis every morning:

Pasta for lunch and dinner:

Gelato two times a day:

Near the end of the trip I even started having pizza as an afternoon snack:

Now do you understand why I really need to move there?

Darn it now I want gelatos and pizza. I can't believe you forgot to FedEx some to me.

You might like the book "Eat, Pray, Love" by Elizabeth Gilbert. Especially the "eat" part!

It looks like it is a good thing you came back to the US before you gained 200 pounds!
