My battery is missing

Thursday, April 25, 2013

I have always been a morning person. Getting up an hour before anyone else and getting in my workouts. 2 weeks ago my husband and I started low carb diet and every morning I am playing wack a mole with my alarm clock. I also have no energy today. I feel like I am moving in mud. I know that is normally a side effect of going low carb but I love how I normally feel. Energetic and ready for my day after a great workout. This morning I only got in 15 minutes. I actually told my husband I was thinking about calling out to work today but I forced myself to go to work anyway. I NEVER call out! I am the person that returned to towork 4 days after having spinal menegitus.

I am hoping tomorrow will be better for me and I am going to try and get to bed really early tonight so that I can drag myself out of bed in the morning. Wish me luck. ha ha

    We ALL have days/ mornings like that, and it's usually a sign to slow down and take it easy on yourself. Hang in there!

    You might want to try adding 200mg of potassium, and maybe 400 of magnesium (if you tolerate it well) because you're losing fluids on a low carb diet, and along with the fluids you lose sodium, and the sodium takes potassium and magnesium along with it.

    Your body should shift into ketone burning any minute now.... in the meantime, get plenty of water, plenty of fat, and plenty of electrolyes... sodium, magnesium, potassium.
    Hang in there just a little bit longer.... emoticon

    It shouldn't be much longer before your energy rebounds. Two weeks is pretty common to feel a bit "off" as your body switches over to fat-burning.

    Speaking of which, make sure you're getting plenty of good fats in your diet and don't overdo the protein. You're not getting eas- come-easy-go energy from carbs anymore, so you need to make sure to stoke the furnace with steady-as-she-goes fats instead.

    Also, make sure you're getting enough sodium and B vitamins. It gets better!
