I guess my body (yes… another body report… sorry) has finally hit a bit of stasis because it has begun protesting violently when it feels it doesn’t have enough nourishment. I get nasty headaches and stomach cramps when I don’t eat enough, but then I get other “problems” if I eat too much. I am eating 5 meals per day. Two small snacks (morning and afternoon) a good breakfast and dinner with lunch being my biggest meal. I have been getting cravings and hungry headaches at about 8:30 at night as well.
I guess I have just never been this “tuned in” to my body. Maybe I’m paying too much attention (read: obsessing) to it… I dunno… But just like I am trying to stick to a program for running, I am also trying to stick to a program for eating. I’m not sure which one is harder… no… I take that back… it’s definitely the eating… *sigh*
It seems I can run an extra mile, or not. Run fast, or slow. Skip a day, or run an off day. It doesn’t matter much. I still slowly progress. But if I add an extra calorie, even occasionally, or skip a meal, or eat an extra snack, I either feel horrible, will attack (and eat raw) anything that gets in my way, or those nasty pounds jump back on and I blow WEEKS worth of progress.
I’m not really “frustrated” as such because I know that if I stick to my plan this will work. I just don’t understand it all and find the whole process a bit backwards and odd. I guess I was just expecting a bit more linear results.
…eh… oh well…
