I also read just this morning about this, here is what they said:
Exercise is suppose to give you more energy. If you feel more tired you over do it. You need to give your body a change to grow in it. They said you must stop for a week so that your body can rest. You can do strengthing exercise. After a week start abit slower with your cardio.
I'm just wondering if you are eating enough - it is true, you have to burn more calories than you take in. But remember you have a Basal metabolic rate and you also burn calories while sleeping and doing your daily activities.
Have you used SP to calculate the calories you need to consume for the calories that you burn?
I am also wondering if you are not just tired. If one does not start of slowly and build on it, it may have a kind of burn-out effect rushing into workouts.
Get back to us and let us know how it goes. :)

For the past week, I started picking up my training and mostly been focusing on swimming and it has been going really really well and I felt great.
This morning I woke up more tired than ever and so it continued during the morning. Why is this? I did my freestyle laps this morning, could not quite make the same number than yesterday and also every time after I do my laps I feel so disorientated, is that normal?
Should I alternate the various exercises every other day? I believe they say the more calories I burn than I take in, the better I will lose the weight.
