Slowing down, resting.......sometimes it is very hard to do but it is something we need to do. It has only happened once or twice before where I have been running on caffeine and not much sleep and my body just says “no more”. My body starts to feel like I am getting the flu and that my body is just so sore and heavy that all I want to do is lie down and sleep.
This has been me this week. As you can tell from my last posts I was so excited to get my D-Fine 8 in the post and was having 1 a day to give me a little boost as my workouts were suffering because I was a little tired.
By the 4th day of trying it, it didn’t seem to be working. So I had another drink and then coffee etc but couldn’t believe that I was still feeling so exhausted. Then by Sunday afternoon my body had had enough and I couldn’t move. Hubby told me I have been doing too much and that I needed to rest. He went out for the night and I ended up going to bed at 7pm as soon as I put Tyler down.
I woke around 6am and STILL felt tired. I napped for the next 2 days every time Tyler did and I can finally say that only yesterday did I feel normal again. It took 3 days of sleeping and NOT working out to give my body a break and I feel like myself again. During this time I also did not have any caffeine at all. Surprisingly I did not feel the side effects (most probably because I was sleeping so much lol).
So I am glad to be back on board and will do some cardio tomorrow and then weight train on Sunday.
Diet has still been good and hopping on the scales this morning I was unfortunately still the same hopefully by the weekend I will be down at least 1kg!!!
I thought it was time for some photos. I have not taken any since the first ones I took straight after having Tyler. I knew there would be a huge difference and I was not wrong. It was actually hard to look at my first photos again, the photos do not lie!!! I have never been that big (or anywhere near that big). Next time I am pregnant these photos will go up on my wall.
I still have a LONG way to go but I am getting there.
I will load my progress photos tomorrow so stay tuned.
Happy Training xx
