Wow! When I woke up this morning I seriously felt like I had been drugged. I didn't sleep well, but the biggest change from other days besides having a challenging 1st cycle day with really bad cramps was that I ate poor choices for dinner and already had a high sodium day.
I blame the poor nutrition of my dinner for waking up so ... "food hung-over", for lack of a better phrase. I was sluggish and even my brain felt muddled. At first I thought that I was imagining things, but compared to my blood circulating during CrossFit, and after re-hydrating all morning, I can't come to any other conclusion.
Not only did it affect my sleep, when I got home last night, it was all I could manage to get myself out of the car and upstairs to bed. I fell asleep on top of my phone as I was setting the alarm (I never even got that done).
I'm glad that I'm okay, and not actually sick or anything. It was quite a trip, and definitely a reminder to keep on track with nutrition. I'm pretty sure that I felt like those sensations were normal at one time. I'm very glad that they aren't any more. I have a new normal.
