Chronic fatigue

Thursday, September 26, 2013

The past three days I have been feeling that 'completely worn out and can barely stay awake feeling' which usually hits just after dinner. Tonight I didn't actually fall asleep but Tuesday I did and last night I did shut my eyes for a while. I took a day off from working out today after many days in a row. The weather has been nice except a little chilly in the mornings. I've been eating healthy but maybe a little bit lower protein this week. I did have some stress at work that may have contributed. I sometimes don't realize how much anxiety I've had until the stressor has passed. Just trying to keep track to see if there is any pattern to this feeling. More emotional overall tonight...sadness, grief issues....
Well, the previous two weeks I had not really had this happen, to this degree anyway, was hoping being back on the program was helping but.... hmmmmm

    And what a difference a day makes! This afternoon I did my workout and noticed improved strength, more energy and I added a nice walk tonight and still not sleepy...
I'll have to listen to my body and take that rest day sooner!!

    If it keeps up, I would see a doctor. Being sleepy during the day can be a symptom of an underactive thyroid, fortunately, that can be helped with medication.

    It could just be your body letting you know it needs a day or two to rest and catch up. Then you will be back on your feet and back at it again!
