Trying to Claim my Life Back - Day 2

Wednesday, June 03, 2015

Later after submitting my blog yesterday, I continued on my journey to healing. I treated myself with things that I don't normally treat myself to, such as an Amazon shopping spree for some new jewelry and a vanity mirror to perfect my makeup. I then spent sometime looking up new looks I could try on myself to boost my confidence for Day 2 (today). And that's when it happened... my body jolted... and I knew immediately that I had fallen asleep straight up in my work chair! THANKFULLY, my boss wasn't in his office at that exact moment, so he didn't see me. But I was filled with such shame. I normally don't enjoy stimulants, but I had decided on an Adipex to keep me awake for the remainder of the day. You know, so I wouldn't lose my job... :/

I felt great after that. I got off work, had one of the best workouts I've ever accomplished, and ate a super healthy dinner. The dilemma is that I wasn't able to sleep very much last night, as I should have known to cut the Adipex in half since I haven't taken them in a while. Ugh! So much nausea... I should've slept in my bathroom instead!

Anyway, so today is Day 2. I had my Shakeology already for breakfast, and have healthy food scheduled for the rest of the day. I also have another gym date scheduled for after work. My biggest accomplishment however, was trying a new makeup look for the first time in about 2 years. And I was very happy and excited about it! I felt beautiful! It was my first time ever wearing any type of color on my lips and having a bold eyeliner with natural eyeshadow, but even the color alone really brought out my smile and made my lips look healthier and fuller. Here is a snip of the post I did on Facebook:

As I said... I was VERY excited lol. My energy is starting to run a little low as I'm writing this, and I'm guessing due to a crash that will surely hit me soon. For a while I was running off of sleepless energy, but the energy is fading. *sigh*, my goodness... what did I do to myself? Day 2, failure already? I'm not going to say that just yet. I'm taking this one segment at a time.

    These are a lot of things, low vitamins and nutrients, the body could lack to cause or give depression like symptoms or worsen depression.

    Multivitamins can generally make someone sick or not settle well because SOMETHING in the container, the user is already getting plentiful of and some things, like too much iron, can do that.

    Back to that link, Fish Oil is a great way to get enough Omega 3, has a lot of health benefits also.
    Vitamin B would be Vitamin B 6 and 12, one for energy one for clarity.

    Amino acids — the building blocks of protein — help your brain properly function. A deficiency in amino acids may cause you to feel sluggish, foggy, unfocused, and depressed. Good sources of amino acids include beef, eggs, fish, beans, seeds, and nuts.

    Folate - dark leafy greens, beans and legumes, and citrus fruits and juices.

    You also stated you are waiting for insurance to kick in for certain testing and yes, again, that could mean your blood got tested for irregularities and probably not nutrition or vitamin aspects.

    I'd also lay off any dietary supplements until you can get a handle on what's going on with your body, the tiredness and everything. That's a bad combination, take care of you and your body before the body and weight loss. Best of luck through Day 3 - 7 to see if those shakes are helping!

    You are very pretty and the lipstick and eyeliner are great. Eyeliner if applied right makes your eyes look bigger but be sure not to over do. That shade of lipstick fits you.
