Obsessed – Day 20 – Unbelievable Fatigue

Today is my 20th day on this program.  While I’ve struggled with my nutrition due to the travel with other people, I’ve killed my workouts.  Even making up a missed workout by doing two in one day.  But today was the HARDEST day I’ve had yet.

I didn’t sleep as well as I’d hoped to last night and I was awake for the day by 6:15 this morning.  I had the best intentions, last night, of rising, shining, eating a pre-workout meal and getting my cardio jam on!  Here’s what really happened.  I came downstairs more sluggish than I’ve felt in a very long time.  I made some coffee and had two cups and just could not wake up.  I cooked my pre-workout meal and ate but just could not find the energy.  Then came the espresso shots which helped a lot.  I have a fantastic espresso machine and come amazing Blue Jamaican coffee that I had shipped in from Italy and it made the best espresso shots I’ve had since I was in Italy in January.  I HAD 3!

Add the pre-workout drink I drink to that and I was BUZZING!!!! I got my workout done which was a 30 minute cardio workout (the same one I’ve done the last two Saturdays/Sundays) and today we did it in 24 minutes with 6 minutes of stretching at the end.  I literally had sweat dripping into my eyes.  That is one of the most grueling and advanced cardio routines I’ve ever done.  If you want to know more about this, message me.  By the time the workout came to an end, my body was toast.  We had errands to run today and I could bare muster the nerve to get in the shower and get dressed.

Inversion feels so good

We ran our errands and came home, all the while I’m “complaining” or “whining” about how tired my body is and sat down to go over our budget.  I still need to cook dinner and it’s nearly 5:30 at this point.  Finally I find the energy to cook dinner and it was fabulous and I found some new energy for that moment.

The Finished Product

Now, here we are at 8:50 Mountain Time and I’m back to complete exhaustion.  I’m loving this program I’m doing so much.  But I’ve never been more excited for a rest day in my life I think.  The results will be better than I think I could imagine when I’m through these 80 days.

As for my nutrition….

It was fine all day but I was not able to eat as much as my meal plan calls for.  I just wasn’t as hungry today as I usually am.  I chalk that up to my physical fatigue.  I’m sharing a couple of pictures for you from my day and will bid you all a good night now.

Don’t forget it’s daylight savings!  Spring Forward tonight!
