Fatigue & Wheat

I don't know if it's overtraining, under-motivation, or overall fatigue.

But whatever it is, I feel soooooooo tired. Not sleepy-tired, but physical-tired. Like it takes a lot of energy just to move my appendages and phalanges.

Today's my "Workout of Choice" day. I can either cross-train, run, walk, or do it all. Due to my fatigue, I think I'm gonna take it easy. Maybe some pushups, some ab work, and a very short walk/run.

On another note, my "wheat-free" week is going swimmingly. I thought I'd have a bigger problem with it--bread and pasta is like oxygen to me--but so far it's been relatively easy. I had originally thought I'd celebrate the end of the week with a pasta dinner, but now I'm thinking that I should just ease wheat back into my diet gradually. We'll see.

I'm happy it's Friday. I live for weekends.

What inspired you to do a wheat-free week?

I felt bloated and sluggish after eating meals with a lot of wheat, like pasta. I thought I'd try to cut out wheat and see what happened. So far I've felt great, but I'm not sure if cutting out wheat is the reason for my flatter tummy. ;)

I'm impressed how well the wheat free week is going. Congrats!!! I'd never be able to do that, I'm a sucker for everything wheat/carb :)

have you tried a full-spectrum lamp? Costco has desk lamps for about $25 -- great for bringing the sunshine in when it's crummy and cold outside.

I think you should try the Cinch inch loss plan. Go to www.shaklee.net/thefountainofyou . It's a great site and you'll be glad I recommended it to you.

thanks for the kick to cut out wheat. i've always noticed a reduction of bloat and a flatter tummy when i do that.

taking a slower day may be just the thing to perk you up. vitamins?
