This blog was blank till lunchtime because I couldn't think of anything to say. I'm getting bored with saying "I feel crap", "I didn't train" so I'm sure you are sick of reading it too... even so, I didn't train this morning again, though I did consider trying to. I decided to leave it the full week with nothing more strenuous than walking and see if I felt more myself. I also decided to ease up on myself diet-wise… I know you're probably thinking 'what diet' after my confessions this week, but I think clinging to the intention of losing weight while feeling off colour has been adding to my depression. Plus it occurs to me (belatedly) that if I'm not feeling great I need to fuel recovery, not try to restrict calories to weight loss levels. (If you think that sounds like rationalization - up yours!!!) For now, at least until I know if there's something specific wrong, I'm going back into maintenance mode. So instead of nibbling salad for lunch and taking a walk I walked to a little Thai restaurant not too far away for lunch - and thoroughly enjoyed it!
