I was just sooo tired. I mean, I have 4 kids: 7 and under but this was beyond the normal “I didn’t get enough sleep last night” kind of tired. But gosh it was so much more than that. Waking up exhausted everyday became a normal feeling. I relied on coffee way too much – I even had a couple conversations with my sister, who had given up coffee for 12 whole weeks! and the benefits she felt from it.

My husband had made a few comments over the past few months about concentration, but goodness – with 4 kids IT IS hard to concentrate at times! Constantly being tired also plays into my mood and how I interact with him and my children.
