I've been feeling really weird today. I slept badly again, waking up around 1am and taking a long time to get back to sleep. When I got up I completely forgot that I'd been planning to try reintroducing morning training (shorter sessions) until I was already showered and dressed for work. All morning my body felt slightly hyper and my brain really fuzzy... I think lack of sleep is catching up with me, and its not a pleasant sensation at all. Alternatively I suppose it could be a reaction to the medication, but the doctor did go through the side effects and I don't remember any mention of this - it was all about nausea, dry mouth, feeling more depressed before it started to work properly, that kind of thing. I must admit I haven't read the full list (mainly so I can't start imagining that I have them all!!!) but I think I might have to check them out. Not that they're likely to have listed 'feeling weird' as a side effect but oh well.
Walked to the shop after work for some bits and pieces. It wasn't as nice as yesterday - cloudier and cooler - but still rounded the day off quite well. And I met several nice friendly dogs (and their nice friendly owners!) I must get back into doing some training but I think taking a little time while I'm not feeling quite myself won't hurt.
Breakfast: Cinnamon porridge with cookies & cream whey
Lunch: I was planning on the usual boring soup & bread, but when it came to it, I couldn't face it, I needed to chew / crunch - so I bought a sandwich (and a cookie) from the sandwich van instead. She sells amazing chocolate chip cookies... and a bag of Salt & Vinegar crisps... carbs! carbs! give me caaaaarbs.....................
Dinner: Quorn chicken style pieces in a stir fry – it wasn’t this blurry in real life
Snacks: Greek yoghurt with fruit and a kit kat on my walk. Yes, I overate. But although I picked unhealthy things to eat I didn’t feel unhealthy while doing it – by which I mean, I didn’t have that slightly crazed desperate binge feeling. My lunch was large and calorific (and left me full all afternoon until I reached Waitrose) but it was still an amount of food that a lot of people (possibly not very fit people, but still…) would consider ‘just lunch’. And it didn’t kick me off into binge mode either.
