    Question "Tired of ~~~"or "Being tired of ~~~"

    Dear all,

    Is the sentence of

    "I am tired of eating noodles every day. I start to have rice."

    equal to

    "Tired of eating noodles every day, I start to have rice."

    or

    "Being tired of eating noodles every day, I start to have rice."?

    And I would appreciate if someone can tell me how to call this sentence construction in English. In Chinese English grammar book, this sentence construction is called "分詞構句"....
