I've sprung an energy leak. . . ugh...
Monday, January 16, 2012
I was so tired and irritable the end of last week. I just didn't feel like posting. Pretty much each day I woke up tired and fell asleep exhausted. Eating was mostly good. I did endulge several times on some low carb atkins candy I bought for my husband. I'm not sure why I did - I know it's junk. I definately didn't feel too good afterwards. I will make sure if I'm going to treat myself, it's atleast something I will enjoy like dark chocolate or cake.
I quit coffee on Friday. My headaches weren't bad, which was awesome. I quit in the hopes that my energy would get better, but nope. I guess I need to face facts that I need to take iron supplements for my low iron and low ferritin. I really don't want to because of the constipation and pain, but I don't know how long it might take for just eating Primal to help, or if it even will. I am hoping I can get an appointment with Chris Kessler about his without needing to do the whole intake thing (I can't afford it), but I want to get a second opinion on this.
I haven't been tracking my food much, but I will start again. Mostly so that I know my carb counts. I am a little curious about macro ratios and calories, but will not choose foods or limit foods based on these. For the most part I just want to see if my fat and carb intakes affect my energy at all.
Energy @ Waking: not much
Energy in Evening: **will record tomorrow**
