That said. I'm training for a half marathon and I've had some issues this week that I can't decide if they are hormones, not enough food or something. (when I say hormones, I mean the lady monthly kind) (and I'm doing a Whole30 right now)--
A typical weeks workouts-
teach yoga four classes
two days with personal trainer
5 days of running/walking 3-7 miles
2-4 gym workouts with weights.(alternateing upper and lower body)
A typical day's food
coffee and coconut milk
breakfast three eggs and veggie omlet (cooked in fat)
or a three egg, spinach, flax, fruit smoothie with coconut milk.
lunch- meat and veggies, cooked various ways, usually with fat, (coconut, olive, or bacon)
dinner meat and veggies,
snacks would be fruit, more meat and veggies, occasionally nuts, I have sweet potato about every other day and avocado about every other day. I don't always have a snack, just if I'm going to workout before dinner and think I need some extra energy.
I am female, 40s, 5'4" and probably have 30 pounds to lose.
I've been cloudy headed, not thinking clearly, but I have had a lot going on, which is typical for me. This week I had a weepy day, due to some stressors that weren't that bad, but they made me cry and I ended up sleeping nine hours that night and then taking a nap the next day. Also, I've had muscle soreness, something I don't normally get. I have been getting probably 6 to 7 hours of sleep a night.
I haven't been hungry, unless I miss a meal, then I'm "starving" and "hangry".
I do take at least one day off from working out, and seem to be gaining muscle strength, etc.
Does it sound like I need more food? Carbs? If so, what kind? As I up my run length, what kind of more carbs for longer runs?
If you want real results-they aren't coming for free.
Bless someone each day with my presence. Make them glad they are here.
Teach people how to love.
