Tired....not hungry, but am I eating enough?

Tuesday, June 26, 2012

As I've started back on a healthy routine I find myself stuggling to choke down 1,200 calories a day. Most days I barely break 800. I can't seem to stuff any more food in me. It's quite frustrating. Maybe I should cut back my water intake? I don't know. As I plan out my food day and track on here, I find that I'm just not consuming enough, and then about 25% of what I plan to eat, I can manage to get down. I'm just not hungry.

Went to the gym this morning. Had a good workout on the Arc Trainer eliptical but my knees and legs feel like jello. I wish there was a cardio activity I could do that didn't involve my legs!

Also frustrated with the scale. It hasn't budged all week. I feel like I should be seeing some movement but I'm not.

Right now, my 18 month old baby is sick and the lack of sleep and stress is a factor I'm sure. Took him to the doctor today and hoping antibiotics will get him straightened out. He hasn't been a very good sleeper at all. 18 months old and I can probably count on one hand the number of times he's actually slept through the night.

I feel like I'm on the right track but so many factors this past week have got me down. Ready for the weekend and hopefully get caught up on some rest!

    You may be tired because you are not getting enough nutrients to keep up with the exercises, taking care of baby and also your body functions. You might want to talk to a doctor or a nutritionist about how to get good nutritious food in you
