i had a chat with my zumba instructor on monday after the sunday dizziness at the gym. he said it really sounded like i was lacking glucose for my exercise. he recommended that i eat a banana about 30-60 minutes before lifting weights, particularly if i'll be doing deadlifts.
he said it's like doing sprints - your body needs INSTANT fuel and doesn't have the time to break down the protein or fat that i might have available. it needs sugar! he also said, like SQUIRRELLYONE commented, that i need to drink something with sugar when i start feeling that way, even if i just put two packets of sugar into my gym water to get feeling better. at least now i know, and i won't be lifting weights without some form of (preferably natural) sugar in my system.
i am really wondering about work. it is making me so miserable and not myself. i had to color my hair to be more natural, had to change so much about how i function. it is not a good situation. i know that i cannot stay in this job, and i need to find another one. but as always, it is difficult to find work, especially in this economy. it takes time, and unfortunately, the longer i spend here, the worse it is for me...
I am thinking about being a freelance writer until i can find something. and if the freelancing works, i can stick with it. i need something to do with myself, but i also know that if i stay in this company, it will crush my soul, and of course i don't want that.
feeling very stuck and trapped, and as soon as i start to feel that, i know i need to get out.
