Yesterday turned out to be a rough day for me. That is why I am just now writing.
I went to the gym first thing like I always do. Hopped on the treadmill and it wasn't an easy run, but I was doing it and refused to quit. Not like my legs hurt or anything. It was just my body wasn't feeling right overall. I should have listened to it better, but my drive made me continue on. By the last 5-10 mins I was ready to puke. Not a feeling I enjoy at all. I wrapped up the run completing W8D2 but of my own version 31:15 or 2.5 miles and headed down to the locker room. I still felt off, but just thought it was because of the hard workout I just did. I hopped in the shower and felt dizzy and saw stars :( I just barely got rinsed off and conditioner out of my hair and I HAD to sit down. Once sitting I started to feel a bit better thankfully :) I finished getting ready and stopped at the gas station for an OJ (by the way...they are 6 points!!!) and that seemed to help also. Not sure if it was a blood pressure issue or blood sugar, but it scared me!
All day I had fruits and lunch and water, but I still came down with a terrible headache :( Staring at the computer all day did not help I am sure, but I had to get the job done. I came home and made some chips and cheese and then laid down. I relaxed for a couple of hours and then drifted off around 8pm. I woke up this morning at 5am but felt like I should take a break today and give my body a rest. I slept for another 90 mins and woke up with lots of energy!!! It was a nice change :)
I had a good day overall. I got a lot done at work and then went to Wal-Mart tonight to pick up a few things. I bought lots of good foods for me to have, however, I will still have to gets fruits and veggies on an as needed basis to go with it. I bought Papa Murphy's for dinner tonight and it was delish!!! I get the Chicken Bacon Artichoke DeLight...YUM! The boys got a Hawaiian.
Tonight I have been doing some work (folding prepay letters) and hemming Zac's pants for his play. Bought some iron in hem stuff. Supposed to take 3 seconds, but it's taking like half an hour! But I think they will look good. Thinking of that I better get back to the iron :)
Looking forward to my run tomorrow. We'll see how my body feels and may vary it a bit so I don't kill myself! Got to be better to my body :) And by the way I lost another 1.4 yesterday bringing my total to 20.4 lost! I will have to update my little person on the top of my blog later or tomorrow :) I also took new measurements and found I have lost a total of 4" on my waist ALONE. I lost more on all other areas, but that was the biggest losing area :) It showed today. I actually wore my belt on the last hole!!! Small accomplishments make me keep going!
