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.

    So sorry to hear you're not feeling well. I find that on this plan it's easy to not feel hungry... and dizziness could mean you're caloric intake has been too low. Eat more (healthy choices, or course) and see if it helps. Hope you feel better quickly!

    I wonder if it is something you aren't getting on the new eating plan. Best of luck

    I hope you figure out what is causing the dizziness, and I hope you get some well deserved rest soon too!

    Please try to get to the doctor as soon as you can... dizziness can be a sign of so many things including something like stroke... praying for you with all that you have going on and wishing you safe journey!!
