So I have not been nearly as productive today as I wanted to be. I have been waking up in the middle of the night for about a week and having a hard time falling back to sleep. It's getting a bit annoying. Happens regardless of whether I take something to help me sleep, or whether I keep my cat out of my room.
Had an appointment this morning and managed to get a few things done and then started to feel a bit lowsy. I had my vitamins, a shake for breakfast (vanilla blended with ice, half a banana and a spoonful of peanut butter) which was very tasty! Stupidly decided to "browse" the online dating world....got sucked into paying for a month's membership just to respond to a couple people (who, by the way, will most likely turn out to be total players/idiots). I don't know why I do this to myself every several months. At the end of July I had declared a "dating hiatus" and look at me now....stupid stupid stupid. But, unless the FedEx man who delivers my next Advocare shipment is Mr. Right I gotta do something!
So who knows if signing up for an online dating site was what is making me feel ill or not.....but I have so much to do before work tomorrow and I just can't get out of my own way. I had a spark after my appointment and was feeling fine, but now my stomach is achy and I even opened a can of diet coke, which I haven't had in WEEKS to see if that would help settle my stomach. It didn't...so I took a nap...and that didn't work either. Haven't worked out today either but feel totally lethargic. I guess I can't be on my A game every single day! But the problem is that I want to be!!! GRRR!
Yesterday I attempted a run outside, decided to do a 3.5 mile loop.....used my inhaler about 30 minutes prior to leaving for the run and also took it with me. I managed to get 0.96 miles in (although really had to push myself) before I had to stop and walk ....and use the inhaler again. I walked about half a mile and then ran 0.6 miles, which was actually more difficult than I thought. I had to walk the remaining distance home....I am discouraged about my difficulty breathing. It's happened in the past, but not this badly. I guess if it continues to be this bad I will call my doctor back again and see what he thinks. I have a 10K in less than two weeks....something's gotta give....
Since I'm sounding a bit like Debbie Downer I'm going to sign off.....have tried to eat healthy today despite feeling crappy....thought maybe part of it was because it had been a few hours since I'd eaten, so I had an apple....some water, and then a snack bar.....but still feeling blah!
Gonna go lay down and see if I can shake this thing. Haven't been out of my apartment since my appointment this morning. Want some fresh air and a little walk, but my whole body feels "heavy" for lack of a better word. If any of you have suggestions/ideas about the running thing I'd love to hear them!
Thanks for reading! Hope you're having a good day!
