I feel so yucky right now!
So, I decided to try a workout supplement to help with my energy levels when I go workout. I heard some really great things about Jack3d, so I bought some at GNC.
Your supposed to mix 1-2 scoops in some water about 30 minutes before a workout. The firs time I used it, I mixed 1 and 1/4 scoops, and when I worked out, I didn't notice too much of a difference. So, today before my training session, I took 2 scoops.
My world has spinning for almost an hour now.
Now, I'm not saying this product is bad. I'm the stupid one who rushed to my training session without eating properly. So, the Jack3d + no food + intense workout = sick Ashlee. I'm supposed to be running errands right now, but instead, I'm trying to get the world to settle. I feel like I'm hungover!
Also, I feel like my body is going to fall apart one day.
My hair is still falling out. I know it's perfectly normal, and that it will stop one day, but it's still disconcerting when I see a clump of hair in my hands after I wash my hair. Also, I'm tired of the drain clogging every week. Very annoying.
Also, both of my big toenails have cracked nearly in half. The left one came completely off, so I only have half of a toenail. This makes me super sad, because I like having nice toenails. I get a pedicure every month, and now my toe is so messed up I can't even do that anymore! I didn't even hit my toe anywhere, they just both cracked out of nowhere! I think it may be surgery related, just like my hair.
When it comes to the band, I'm still having trouble eating right. I PB at least once or twice a week now because I scarf my food down too fast. I have to be extremely careful eating any kind of bread, too, or I'm choking it back up plus some mucous stuff. It's nasty. This usually happens when I've been hungry for a while, and I eat too fast to satisfy my hunger.
The Rock N Roll marathon is coming up very quickly, and I am completely unprepared. I know that I have improved my stamina since July, but it's coming along very slowly. I will not complete this marathon in time, but I'm okay with that. It's just a stepping stone. Honestly, I need to step my workout game up if I plan on completing any kind of marathon soon.
Not having to worry about school right now has actually been a load off of my chest. I've been getting some intense migraines recently, and I'm positive they're stress related, so I'm positive without having to worry about school, I'll have more breathing room to deal with my stress. I can't believe I actually decided to take the semester off, but I know I'm not quitting for good. I'm way too close to graduating, and way too far in debt to quit now.
I'll be fine.
I'm not the best at dealing with my stress, though. I used to eat my way out of stress. Either that, or take a nap. I don't have much time for naps now, and I find still eat my way out of stress. Do any of you have ways to deal with your stress in healthier ways?
