Blog update - The last week and a bit

Published by Determined93 . Views: 110

I haven’t really had a chance to update my blog recently, during the day I hardly ever get a moment of peace and at night when I finally get some down time my mind has been so scrambled that trying to gather my thoughts and write anything has been a mission. I even slipped with my personal daily journal (not really a journal just my notes section of my phone where I jot stuff down I think may be of importance/relevant for relating back to in the future), so I will fill you’s / my future self in on what little notes I took / what I can remember since I last updated my blog...

Where I left off..
I finally got over being sick YAY! Not sure exactly when it happened but it did so I’m happy about that. Although since then I have been struggling with decreased energy levels and just feeling physically & mentally drained .. all fricken day!

My theory on my whole calories in vs out thing has played out quite well so far with my last two weekly weigh ins being -1.5kg & -1.8kg.

My Birthday was on the 19th of this month (the first day of week 6) and I was pretty bad that evening. I went out to dinner, which the dinner part wasn’t too bad as I only ate half of my meal but I did have some cake (a small slice) and I had a few alcoholic drinks too, completely slipped my mind that I wasn’t supposed to drink while on duro but luckily I didn’t have any side effects, probably helped that there was about a 14 hour window between when I took my tablet and had my first drink.

For most of the rest of the week my calorie intake was higher then normal but still under my 1200 a day goal but not by much so I was shocked when I seen that I had lost 1.8kg for that week bringing my total loss to 10.6kg.

Day 1 of week 7 I got to have a sleep in and didn’t get up until 12pm! I slept for about 9hrs, which is the longest sleep by far I have had in one hit since I started duro. I ended up making the decision to skip my tablet that day if I wanted any chance of getting any sleep that night. It didn’t effect me as much as I thought it would, I suppose because it was still probably in my system. I still had reduced appetite and didn’t really feel any different in terms of energy levels, which makes sense since I don’t get the crazy energy boost from duro anymore, it pretty much just makes me feel like I got enough sleep when really I didn’t in terms of energy levels. One thing I did get that I haven’t had since starting duro was the tummy rumble when I got hungry about dinner time, which honestly I did end up eating more then my usual portion size (but not by a whole lot) and I had a glass of coke but other then my morning coffee they were the only calories I consumed that day. I didn’t go to bed until about 3am.

The next day I woke up at 10am (about 7hrs sleep) and my eyes just felt really heavy from the minute I woke up and lasted all day, even after taking my tablet and having my coffee I just struggled to keep my eyes open so I ended up taking a nap that afternoon and slept for about 3 hours, not waking up until 8pm! Only ate lunch that day as it was a pretty heavy meal compared to what I’m used to, I had a steak, egg and salad sandwich so that kept me going for the rest of the day, even after my nap.

I think I needed the extra sleep as I woke up yesterday feeling a lot better, I still wasn’t loaded with energy but was back to my normal, energy wise anyways my mind was still scrambled and the day is kind of a blur but I do remember going looking through my kitchen cupboard for a specific container I wanted for something and next thing I knew I was on the floor with everything pulled out, cleaning the inside of the cupboard and organising it all. Still didn’t find the container I was after though until I opened the fridge when it was all done and there it was, right at eye level being used for something else. That’s how foggy my brain has been lately, just kind of going through the motions not noticing things that I usually would.

That brings me to today.. I am currently 4 days into my 7th week. Got up at a decent time this morning, took my tablet a bit earlier then usual and am hoping to get to sleep at a decent hour tonight. I did start getting tired around 4pm today and could have gone for a nap but instead just had a coffee which perked me up a bit and cleared up my foggy brain which has allowed me think straight again So I thought I would take this opportunity to update my blog.
