No energy

Friday, March 05, 2010

This hasn't been a good week for me. I feel so low on energy - I go to work, the gym, come home lay down, get up and do the rest of my routine and then an hour or so later go back to bed. It's my time and I think that might be the cause. Work has been kinda busy lately too. A coworker is TDY and I've inherited his workload as well as mine.

Either way I've made a lot of bad food choices. I'm craving salty fatty foods like I've never before. I don't even have the courage to log my food for the past few days to really see how bad it is. I was so revolted with myself last night when after my workout I was so drained, instead of coming home and cooking I took the fast food route for dinner (I had it at lunch too). I did try to choose something a little bit better at dinner though. And lunch today I was probably the best I've been all week. I think I've got the mentality that since I'm exercising so much more, I can eat whatever I want. That might be a little bit closer to the truth if I trying to maintain my weight instead of losing ( and even then it's a stretch.)

I know I need to increase my calories to support the additional activity, I just need to find a healthier way to do. That might be another reason I've been feeling so energy-less. I've still been working out my 30 minute minimum, just the last two days I've tried some of the weight machines at the gym and didn't want to do the Wii Fit yoga and strength training routine as well. I haven't been doing my short video workouts for the sweatsuit to swimsuit boot camp either. So I still have the energy to workout, I just feel like I'm not doing enough, since I'm not maintaining the same levels as I had for some time.

Well, the week is almost over so am hoping to get that energy back next week. Thank god I only have to deal with this every 3 months.

    I wish you the best of luck in reaching all of your goals. Have you considered taking vitamins? I know we read that if we eat healthy foods that vitamin supplements aren't usually necessary, but I am not sure that I will ever be able to eat THAT healthy. I hope you are feeling better and have more energy next week.
