Hi Y’all. Rest day for me yesterday so not much to report although due to the previous days lack of a gym session I decided I had best walk again and keep the muscles moving. I am wondering if in someway, because I no longer eat as much as I did, if I am taking on enough energy but then that doesn’t make sense because I eat so much more nutritionally than I have ever done before.
It’s a weird one.
One thing is for sure, I feel like I am running out of puff.
Maybe I’m like the Duracell Bunny with the drums. I have managed to go a lot further than my previous incarnation, but like all things must, I have finally run out of power and am scrabbling for my energy, turning my batteries, switching the ends and warming them up trying to eke out the final bits of power.
There are alway the supplements that can be added to the diet in a bid to counteract the tiredness and I have tried a sprayable B12 but assume that it requires time to work along with the Zinc and Magnesium vitamin supplements I am taking. Hopefully they will all eventually kick in and start to give me the energy I require, either that or I need more rest days in my exercise regime.
Lets see how it goes.
I suppose the back pain doesn’t help with my activity but then again I am only 3 months post surgery so should probably understand that it will not repair overnight but will take many long months of coaching and persuading back into shape before I am strong enough to move as freely as I truly want to. Again, patience is a virtue that when it comes to my wellbeing, is sadly lost on me…. 😉
Anyway, to business:
FOOD DIARY: Tuesday 9th June 2015
|Qty||Measure||Food||Calories (gr)||Protein (gr)||Carbs (gr)||Fat (gr)|
|1||75mls||Semi Skimmed Milk||37.5||2.7||1.4||3.1|
|Lunch||1||175mls||PHd Whey Protein||91||17||2.75||1.4|
|1||Mini Muffin||Egg, Cottage Cheese and Ham Muffin||65||9||2||2|
|1||150gms||Quinoa and Feta Cheese Salad||148.3||6.3||16.5||5.5|
|2||1/8 Size pieces||Homemade Pizza||213||17.5||11||10.25|
|1/2||Bar||Almond Coconut Bar||197||4.3||2.5||18.72|
Not a bad days food intake although maybe a bit heavy on the Pizza and having those two small pieces as a snacks at different times of the day was not the best idea, but then that is the whole idea for the diary. It lets me know where I slip up and eventually I hope it becomes second nature to question whether I really need the snacks at all.
So unlike me, todays post is very quick as there is nothing to report on the exercise front as I did not go to the gym and although I walked, it was more of a stroll with the dog than it was real regimented exercise, although we found a new exciting path to follow that goes through some very nice woods with lots of smells for the dog whilst offering a good amount of shade to keep him cool. It is certainly sure to feature in future treks.
Hopefully be back to full reporting strength tomorrow so please do come back and read a little more.
Stay out of the fridge.
