“That Day”

17 Aug

Do you ever have “that day” – you know, the day where you don’t feel sick but you don’t feel quite right? That day where your energy is totally bottomed out right from when you woke up? That day when you don’t even have the energy to care about not having energy and while yes you can still do stuff it takes all your mental pushing to actually do even the tiniest thing? phew, that was a long sentence, take a breath now. teehee

That was my day yesterday. It was weird. I woke up tired, lol, that’s never fun! I thought maybe I just had a bad sleep, no biggy, get up and get going and the energy will come back, shrug, it’s happened before. But no, I got up, ate, chilled for a bit, forced myself to go for my hike – and even though I went I will confess I didn’t put as much effort in to it as normal so I felt like a slacker even while hiking! lol – then I spent the rest of the day at home trying to convince myself to do mildy important things, like eat. *rolls eyes*

Today was a bit better…I didn’t wake up tired but I did wake up later then normal, and I had absolutely no desire to do anything so I skipped my hike and only went to Boxerfit class. This means I earned 7 exercise points today instead of 10, to think this makes me feel lazy when once upon a time 7 exercise points in one day would totally impress me. ๐Ÿ˜› lol

I’m not sure what is going on, like I wrote at the beginning of this post I don’t feel sick, I just feel as if something is not quite right…and I can’t peg what that is. shrug. Whatever it is that has gotten unbalanced I am taking steps to correct it. ๐Ÿ™‚

I was able to go grocery shopping today, I have been strapped for cash and not able to buy anything so I’ve been living off what I have already, that sounds worse then it is, lol, it’s no big deal. I have frozen veggies and I had some frozen lean ground turkey (that I turned into burger patties that were accidentally waaaay salty, sigh, slight miscalculation there lol) and I have baked beans an such so I was able to eat ok. What I was missing was fresh fruit/veggies, well really, any kind of fresh produce, yogurt…you know, perishables. But! today I got to go grocery shopping, yah! I can’t remember the last time grocery shopping brought such a sense of relief lol ๐Ÿ˜›

I got to buy yogurt, salad, fruit, veggies – ah, it was glorious! Also, I had a wicked 50% off coupon for frozen chicken breasts (that mom emailed me, thanks Mom!) but the store was sold out so they extended my coupon for 3 whole months! How sweet is that?! I mean yeah, I would have liked to be able to buy the chicken today but since I couldn’t it’s great that the coupon will not expire for so long, that way, if I can’t afford to buy it next week I don’t lose the chance to use the coupon. Yah! ๐Ÿ™‚ Go Safeway Go! lol

Ok, fine, I am lame, go ahead and laugh, me getting so psyched about grocery shopping and the length of time my coupon will last, but hey, getting psyched about the simple things makes life a lot more enjoyable. ๐Ÿ˜›

I think the addition of fresh produce will help my energy levels go back up, I mean without all my normal fruit servings I am low in natural sugar and all kinds of other good things – that can’t be good! I’ve also been working on increasing my protein intake since I got back from AB, I managed it really well last week but not quite as well this week so I’ll focus on that and the eating of fresh produce again. And of course I am keeping myself nice an hydrated. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hey, I’m happy to find your blog, I really like it! And just before I dig in deeper, I’d like to ask- have you had your blood markers checked?… I do not want to scary you, though, waking up tired might show people some health problems. It might be sth not so bad, as reduced iron levels. However, it might also be a sign of bigger problems. I am hypothyroid myself and the main reason I decided to go to the doctors was inability to wake up feeling like a slept enough. Of course, lots of other symptoms were already present, however, I was really late! So I recommend everyone to check their blood (it’s really not that hard) if they experience strange tiredness, it’s the first symptom that something might be wrong.

    And good luck with your goals ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Hi! I’m glad you like. ๐Ÿ™‚ I can’t wait to go read yours! No, I haven’t had my blood checked, I don’t have a regular doctor, I just go to walk in clinics when I am really sick and getting them to send you for testing is a pain in the butt cause even if they send you you almost never get any answers cause the docs aren’t told when the results are returned to them – this has happened before, sigh. I have to go to a clinic soon for a refill on a prescription so I’ll bring it up then, see what they say…who knows, maybe I’ll get tested and get answers this time? lol I’ve always put my being tired down to my being an extremly lazy person – I figured my body was cranky i’d been making it exercise so much and was teaching me a lesson ๐Ÿ˜›
