Thank you.

I've decided to take the day off from working out because yesterday wasn't a good day at all.

I suppose I shouldn't expect too much of myself at this point, so your probably correct.

Thanks so much again.

I think you might be pushing yourself a little too hard, considering you're just starting out. I would suggest to start by taking is slow- maybe some walking or yoga- just something to kinda build you up. Blood pressure can be the devil sometimes, but you really do have you watch and make sure you;re physical activity isnt too extreme starting off. Ive been there myself, I was extremely motivated when I started, and ended up pushing myself too hard which only backfired due to my strict diet as well as vigerous exercise.

Or, another possibility might be doing your exercise at night after dinner... Either which way, I wish you luck and hope everything gets better!!!

I woke up at 6am, ate breakfast, and did my exercises around 7am. So the problem is while doing my exercises I became really light headed if I remember correctly it really started to hit me when I did about 15 set ups. So my question or concern is.. is this normal? I have high blood pressure and am currently on med's for that, is it my blood pressure getting too high? I've googled it and all that comes back is that it's normal for a 'active' person to become light headed and such due to the way they breathe. I haven't been active or did any exercises for a while now, so I am a newb, so does anyone know if I should worry about this and maybe try to do less for the first week, and work myself up, or is this all happening because it's something my body isn't used to and I should I just keep going?
Another thing is I feel so very tired. I even took a nap today and I'm still tired. Is this normal?
Sorry for all the questions, but I'm not very well with diets and I don't hardly know any of the information that I should about these things, so anything anyone could help me out with would be wonderful. I know I should probably know all this stuff, but I don't. :(

Thanks to everyone who reads :)
