Week 4 "Why am I still so tired?"
We are a third the way through this challenge, I am exercising 5 days a week, eliminated all treats sugar, chips etc. and I still have a hard time getting out of bed each morning. Ugh. I always feel a slight headache, tired and ready for a nap. I thought it would get better by now. I am already on thyroid meds and always have taken vitamins so I am not sure why the lack of energy. My daughter decorated cakes in YW this week. It was the first thing since this challenge began that I REALLY wanted. It stayed on the counter for three days, this little cake, the kids picking at it a little at a time. If I was eating treats it would have been gone in 10 min and left me to confess my sins of eating her whole cake, but I kept reminding myself, food is a memory, remember how it tastes and that is good enough. I really am liking fruits and veggies more. I bought some frozen peaches, blueberries, strawberries, honeydew mix from costco and it is yummy. Fresh carrots, celery and peppers make for a great snack and the water I am still living in the bathroom and up several times a night, but find myself now craving it. Some things don't phase me now like they did a month ago, like now I don't snack while making my hubby's lunch before bed. I really was piecing a lot while making it. Water, I just grab a cup fill it and gulp it down, before I gagged it down. Little changes make a difference, even though tired, I think clearer and not in such a fog all the time. Week points were good lost for only exercising 5 days and one night I just couldn't sleep. I lost 2.2lb down a total of 9.2. 69pts for the week that includes weight loss and Monday post. Total challenge pts. 274. Now if I can only survive Super Bowl Sunday.
