I am still feeling like rubbish! I am awake and I am able to be attentive for the entire day, But I am tired and am stuck in that funk right between ‘Feeling Tired’ and ‘Feeling Sick’. I am both of those things, but not quite, if that makes any sense?
Today I jumped on the scales, even though it is not official weigh-in. I am weighing every fortnight, and because I weighed last week, I need to wait again till next Monday. I did not wait. Goh!
I have achieved a loss of 300 grams, which is awesome! But I feel like shit! I am officially into the 74th Kilogram, but because I feel horrible, I haven’t quite got excited about it!
I have a few theories…
I may have an Iron deficiency – I kinda doubt it because I have been eating spinach like no bodies business, but at the same time, I have lowered my red meat intake, instead I have been hitting up fish and chicken.It may or may not be this, but as a lady… who experiences ‘Lady Days’ this may well be the root cause.
I may not be eating enough – Today I went on to MFP to check my settings. It was set to ‘Lightly Active’. I hardly think that I am just ‘Lightly’ Active, I am doing something everyday for a lot of the day so I bumped it up to “Active” instead, this gives me an extra 100 cals a day, not that I feel I need it, I am satisfied as I am, but we will give it a whirl. There are also activities that I don’t log that maybe I should? Stuff like the windows I am stripping, that is pretty freeking physical, Mowing the lawns, Stationary biking for 5mins!?! Hardly Counts!, Some of the Weight training I do – in my mind it doesn’t feel like I have exherted enough energy for it to even count, walks that I take almost daily – again I don’t feel like I am exhert myself much at all. Maybe I should be logging these, but then I have a fitbit, so it kinda does it for me anyway…
My macros may be off – I don’t get too much into this, because I just don’t have enough knowledge to know what is right. But perhaps on my run days I am not eating enough Carbs. I know I eat plenty, shit I eat a sandwich almost everyday, I freeking love sandwiches! But I don’t know much about how much of what I should be eating. I just try kick it low fat as much as poss, and almost every single day I am hitting the correct amount of Cals while feeling full and satisfied.
I can’t say it is not enough sleep, I sleep most nights 7-8 hours, which is more than the average person I am sure.
Dehydration? Maybe. It has been super hot lately, but I drink enough I think. I am never thirsty.
Maybe I need to get laid? Quite possibly!
And before you go any further with your thinking…I am not knocked up!
Who knows, but I have made a few changes to what I have been doing, although it has been working in a ‘weight’ sense, not so much in the energy sense. I will see how it all goes.
Oh I ran today. Which was good and shit at the same time. I did what I needed to, I just didn’t enjoy it as much as usual. Heavy legs, bad form, breathing was fine, but it was HOT!
Meh, tomorrow I go out to the TECT! Carbing up tonight and in the morning for a Long hard run. I hope to be feeling better before, during and after haha! Experiencing some of natures medicine!
Ok so there wasn’t too much Pimping going on today, but how about you? Ever hit that ‘in between’ funk? What are your plans for the week?
See you tomorrow,
P.S. I am pretty stoked about how muscly my legs are these days, I kind of feel a little badass about that! ha!
