Saturday Apr 27 #


Finding it challenging to balance everything. Need to be really careful with food otherwise I get digestion issues and don't sleep, but at the same time want to try get enough vitamins and minerals cause I'm deficient in mutliple things (or at least was in January) Buuut when I have digestion issues I probably don't absorb vitamins and minerals anyway. Other problem is low blood sugar which still sometimes wakes me up at night. If I don't drink enough during the day i think pots keeps me up but at least that's separate (apart from probably spend too much time lying down which probs makes digestion worse). I'm almost on top of it when things are going well and I can exercise, but any dip in energy makes digestion worse and because I need more rest I don't drink as much (it's hard to drink consistently through day when resting). And then because sleep is bad it makes everything worse and it's hard to get out of the cycle. At least when I get very little sleep I now feel human during the day and can function/exercise which stops me going into a downward spiral. It's just a very slow way back to getting the right balance.
Anyway, slept well in the first half of the night.

Felt better after again! Really happy cause a lot more socialising than normal as also spoke to Cesca on the way to the pool and it was at st Leonard so had a hill on the way back. Feeling strong at times as well! I just can't maintain "easy" pace very long even if it is well within aerobic limits.
