Where is the energy?

Friday, April 05, 2013

I feel so tired, drained and am not motivated at all. I have been staying on track of my plan as much as I can. I have followed my meal plan precisely except on Easter and I am losing weight that I am extremely happy with. I have no energy to want to do anything except lay in my bed. I do not feel ill at all so I'm not sure what is going on. I have felt like this for a little while now. For right now my exercise is walking but most days I don't even feel like doing that. I walked almost a mile yesterday evening but that is it for the week and the week is almost over. I thought that eating healthier would give me more energy but it seems like it is draining me of my energy. Hopefully since it is to be nice outside today I can get to take a walk before my afternoon bus run. emoticon

    One step at a time - do what you can do and it will get better. Could it be something else that is sapping your energy? Also, if you are eating a lot differently than you were before Sparkpeople, it might take your body a while to get used to all this healthiness! Just a thought! Hang in there - you can do it!

    I think you have to take one step at a time, and you seem to have made a fantastic step forward in eating healthily. Exercise is hard if you aren't feeling motivated, but with spring round the corner it will get easier. Perhaps you could find a friend locally who will support you and you can motivate each other to get out and about. emoticon emoticon you're doing emoticon emoticon

    Be kind to yourself. This is a journey - probably for most of us, it's a marathon, not a sprint. Make sure that you're getting enough sleep and drinking enough water. Maybe start making little deals with yourself: I'll take that walk, and then I get to do something that I really enjoy (watch your favorite movie tonight, or whatever makes your heart jump for joy). You will start feeling better if you're eating healthy foods; this might be a mental struggle, which we all have from time to time. It's so easy to get discouraged! But promise yourself that you will be kind, and do what it takes so that you believe yourself. Hang in there! In a few days, I bet that you'll feel better!
