I made my protein drink; put it by the back door, my phone rang, someone came to the front door . . . LOL! I grabbed my bags that held my water . . . but forgot my protein drink. Seriously .. .. I really gave my body a SHOCK . . . I didn't even figure out why I was feeling so weak during the 2nd hour of class. Afterwards, I sat down & analyzed that I need more protein in between classes. THEN . . . I remembered I didn't have my protein shake.
OMG . . . I had to focus to clean up the outside pool deck. Then I still had to clean up the inside pool deck. I was an athlete for many years . . and I remembered this feeling . . . weak, out of focus . . and I used that training to focus & make my movement efficient. My body didn't have anything to pull from . . . so at least maybe some fat got digested for energy. I just hope it didn't go into muscle.
My mantra was . . . "I'm almost there." over & over & over. I know my physical being is going to suffer for the abuse. RATS! I'm still drinking the shake . . . it's better to drink it slowly when the body is empty. I have 40 oz of water next to me so I'm going from protein shake to water.
I have my timer set for 2 hours. At that time, I'll make a cheese omlet with some green pepper & take my time eating. I now have put a container of protein powder in my workout bag. Now, I can mix it with my water & take care of myself. Hopefully I don't do this often. Whewwwww . . .
No yard work or biking today. Live & learn. Sometimes I need to be reminded. Two more classes tonight. I'll rest and be smart.
I'm still happy! I know how to recover. I wish I had at least 12 hours but I'll hydrate & put more protein into the physical machine. Connie
