Yesterday was rough for me, really rough. The morning I was doing great, a little tired but I thought I might be. But I wasn't expecting the sudden wall I hit around 4 in the afternoon. I was dragging butt, I got home and I had dishes to do and that was just difficult. Not cause the dishes were that bad, but because I lacked energy.
I had every intention of doing zumba and the ellptical last night. Guess which one I didn't do? I made zumba but that was it. Even in Zumba I felt tired, my legs just felt tired. I knew I worked them out pretty good the night before but still I've not quiet had that problem before. Normally once I get into Zumba I get a huge energy burst.
As soon as class was over I was out of there, then I remember I had to go to the store. Again that was difficult, but I started to wonder about something as I passed by the deli chicken. Was I really as hungry as I was suddenly feeling?
I hadn't missed a meal, heck I even had a snack. But by the time I got home for dinner my stomach was begging for food. Well I had grabbed a footlong at Subway on my way home. I was good got it with veggies no cheese. Over all not bad, not great but not bad. I was really good I only ate half and then set the other side in the fridge for twenty minutes. Well I was still hungry so I ate it, well most of it. I threw away some but thats okay.
When I was finished though I noticed I felt better, still tired but not ready to fall over tired. I looked back through my food the day before and realized I didn't eat enough, I came close, but with the workout I had done I hadn't eaten enough. Wasn't on purpose I just wasn't hungry. I remember that night though I did wake up, I was hungry. But I have a pretty strict don't get up in the middle of the night and eat policy. It tends to make me feel bad in the morning when I see what I've eaten, so I don't do it. Haven't in over a year.
Today is a bit better, but I'm going to focus more on maybe hitting the higher side of my calories. Also been working a little late the last few nights, nothing terrible but it's off to bed early tonight. I've just never had a problem before with not eating enough and then having no energy. I'll find a good balance, just might take a day or so to even back out.
