Poor night's sleep

Tuesday, May 07, 2013

I don't feel so run down this morning even after having a poor nights sleep, I was wide awake by 4:30 and could not get back to sleep.
I am sticking with yoga and walking as my main form of exercise for the next few days until this spell of low energy wears off. I think it is my body adjusting to burning fat as fuel as my carb intake is between 80 and 100g a day.
So my exercise today, walking and a evening and morning 20 min yoga program. emoticon

    As I understand it, the body runs on glucose. It readily digests carbs into glucose. However, the body can also turn proteins to carbs that in turn turn into glucose. That's why it's important we keep those nums up. I added to my tracker so that I could differentiate between saturated and non saturated fats, as I know too much saturated fat can leave me sluggish. I also found out that keeping track of these lovely things did not assure me of enough iron-especially if you're doing strength training, you supposedely need more iron and more proteins, I believe. So, one more addition to the tracker (also salt as I get short of breath with too much salt). I don't know much, but hope it's a help.
and somewhere in these are the needs for adult male...You might have to look extra in the search engines for specifics on iron
Take care, hope ya get back to self soon!

    Is it possible you are taking in too few carbs and not giving your body the energy it needs (which in turn could be driving the low energy)? Just a thought....
