Cycle 2 Day 7 - No energy
Wednesday, April 10, 2013
The past 3 days have been long and lacking energy. I am drained. I think it started when I had gone 2-3 nights without much sleep due to the kids waking up at night a lot. Between little sleep, lower calorie levels, and work, and home, I am downright exhausted.
Yesterday, I felt like I was about to faint in class. It was the strangest feeling. I have never fainted or had this feeling before, but after describing it to my husband, I am pretty sure I was about to faint. I don't know what prevented it, but I am glad I didn't just go out cold! I was in the middle of a lesson and I just started to go backwards and a bit to the side. Luckily a desk was there and I was able to stumble a bit and regain my balance as it held me in place somwhat. Very scary. I know my students must have thought I was crazy. I didn't want anyone freaking out, so I just played it off saying I had tripped on my pants and that they needed to be hemmed (which is true).
I have been rather dizzy lately though and can't pinpoint the cause. I am going to take my blood pressure this evening and see where it is. I wonder if my blood pressure medicine is working more than needed since I have been on this diet. The dizziness started when I started the diet. I eat when I am hungry, so I don't think that it is me not eating enough. I don't know.
I still feel out of it today and very tired, but at least the work day is over. Although, now I have to go home and pack! We leave for the wedding tomorrow immediately after school so everything has to be packed tonight. I am excited and nervous! And it isn't even my wedding! I wrote my toast/speech today, so I am glad that I have that done. I am nervous to speak in front of others, so I hope I do alright.
A lot going on. Next week will hopefully be calmer. Things can settle down a bit hopefully.
