I'm not sure if I've ever had less energy than I did yesterday afternoon. I went for a walk with my dogs in the morning. It was a pretty good walk up a few hills in the snow, but nothing ridiculously strenuous. Didn't feel too bad. Then I went for a hair cut (10 inches off!) and I'm pretty sure my powers left with my hair. I'm pretty much Samson... except without the whole - slaying of an army with a donkey jawbone / wrestling a lion part.
I tried to do my combat workout in the evening with my husband but I had so little energy I couldn't even run on the spot. I was so frustrated that I couldn't keep up, 10 minutes in I actually broke down crying. SO embarrassing! I didn't really want to write about it and thus increase my embarrassment... but I guess that's the point of this place.
I've kept everything in for so many years and that obviously hasn't been working for me. So here I am. Tears, failures, successes, everything. I've found support and motivation here like I never have before.
Today I feel better. I'm fairly certain that my problem yesterday was not eating enough the day before. I'm a classic - eat when you're not hungry - girl. So in my effort to curtail that I didn't eat enough because I just wasn't hungry. I need to find a balance and still eat enough for the day. Now I know I will pay for it the next day if I don't.
