Still Tired

Wednesday, March 21, 2012

I am starting to feel better, but I am still tired. Yesterday, I was barely functioning. I was in such a fog and I was pushing against the wall all day. I was glad that the 3 boys weren't here. I did go to TOPS for support and because I am the assistant weight recorder, but didn't weigh in because I had basically binged all day on brownies. I ate sensibly today.

I went to the gym tonight with my daughter. I only did 30 min on the elliptical. I was going to do some weights, but I was tired and didn't want to push it.

    When we are tired like that its usually our body's way of telling us something is up and we need to slow down. I'm trying to remember that as I get back on track with food and exercise and it does take a toll on the body as it figures out where to get the energy from. It's good that you listened to your body. Hope you are feeling better this week. emoticon

    I was going to comment on your page and then saw that I missed this blog when you posted it so decided to post here... You mentioned before being in a plateau and now this tired thing... Do you get enough protein?? I read about that on another person's blog who is doing the "clean eating" thing (and who isn't at least TRYING that?!?) and the recommendation is to eat LEAN protein with EVERY meal. Thought I would mention it as it's something that I need to work on and it might help you too. emoticon

    Hang in there and keep plugging away, even if it has to be at a slower pace than you would like. I am struggling with the realization that I can't do what I could do at 30 anymore - at least not as quickly, or without a nap! Uggh!

    Good morning dear friend! I hope today is a healthy day for you. Forgive me if this sounds harsh, but WHY do you have brownies in the house? Your daycare kids need healthy meal & snack choices, and I'm sure your family can get their sugar/fat fix at school/work/etc. You are the one who spends her whole day at the house, and you should eliminate unhealthy choices from your house! Don't set obstacles before yourself and then hope/pray for willpower! I wonder if you still equate "loving your family" with baking goodies for them. I did that for years, and then realized my hubby would much rather have me healthy than have a brownie. God bless you as you face the struggles. I just hate to see you be you own worst enemy. emoticon

    Give yourself a pat on the back for going to TOPS for support, for getting 30 minutes of exercise, and for eating sensibly today. In my book, those are MAJOR successes. This is especially impressive since you were in such a vulnerable state today. You did a lot of things right today, and you need to give yourself credit for that. You are getting back on track one step at a time - that is how it is done, and you are doing it well!

    emoticon what is it with brownies? I've had the same problem for the last two days, and I've been obsessed with the "perfect brownie" lately

    emoticon for the 30 minutes of exercise!

    Maybe you are coming down with the flu or something. I commend you for going to the gym!

    I felt like that last week and I figured it was because of the time change. I still feel a little tired but not as much. Hope you feel less tired soon emoticon
