I'm tired

Monday, October 04, 2010

I think I have taken on too much. I have been working out everyday for the last 2 weeks and I think it is catching up to me. I haven't upped my calorie intake to offset the increase in exercise. I was just trying to do too much. I was so proud of myself for actually getting up everyday and working out that I didn't think there would be any problems. I started noticing I was tired a lot. I told my husband one day that I wake up tired and he told me that wasn't good. I read an article on Sparks yesterday that talked about this very topic. Working too much can tired you out and you need to give your body time to rest. I took yesterday off from exercising and I am still tired today but I think that also had to do with the fact that I stayed up later last night. Another thing that I am doing to myself. I don't have a set sleep schedule so my body is so out of whack right now.

    Maybe on your off days do something gentle, like a short walk--if the weather is nice. It's enough to get the blood moving and it gives all sorts of long-term health benefits.

    Great that you are listening to your body! Our programs need to be sustainable, so that we can enjoy these habits for the rest of our lives.

    It is said that one needs a day off to let the muscles re-group so to speak. I don't know, I hate exercise You might consider giving your body a good rest and also consider B12 tablet. I take one a day, Dr. said ok for me to take it since the body eliminates what it doesn't use. It has made a huge difference and I am not tired like I was. You might investigate this. Best wishes to you...
