Have you ever felt like your brain was on fire, your forehead feels like a hammer is going to town on it, and top it off with a horrible bought of nausea. Sounds like hell, does it not. Well, its my personal hell right now! I am on day 4 of a high protein/low carb diet which consists of rice, oatmeal, chicken, tilapia, greens and almonds. I am in meal prep hell! I am constantly setting the timer on my phone for every 2 1/2 hours so I consume my next oh so delicious meal.
The first 2 days were amazing! I was chalk full of energy, I didn’t have a single day where I wanted to lay down and rest. Usually I go hard in the gym, and start to feel the effects of it after I have been home for 3 or so hours. But I haven’t had that issue once I started the diet.
Que in yesterday…….. I was EXHAUSTED when my alarm went off at 6 am. When I say exhausted, it felt like I was at a rave all night and I had only had about an hour of sleep….. But NOPE, I actually had a well rounded amount of sleep but just felt like I could close my eyes standing up, and manage to fall sleep. I still mustered up the energy to head to the gym and get my cardio in and work on my arms.
But today….. Holy mother of God…… I feel like I have been hit a MAC truck! My head was pounding, my stomach was in knots, and I wanted to throw the covers back over me and die. I have barely functioned today, I have spent the mast majority of the day laying around catching up on Keeping Up With The Kardashians. So, its safe to say I am not having the most productive day.
I guess I have always wonder what a zombie would feel like it, well I got my answer. I can’t say for sure its the lack of sugar and carbs in my diet, or if I am getting sick….. The jury is still out on that. Ill keep you posted……..
