Wow, what a goofy day. I woke up at 2 a.m. groggy and unable to sleep. I putzed around, got a little more studying done, then off to the Y to teach a class and train a client. By 7:30 a.m. I had driven to my second destination to teach Pilates Ballet. No one showed up and I was actually grateful. Came back home and studied a bit more. Then I realized that my system was way off.
Waking up at 2 a.m. is called overtraining. Too much exercise yesterday without enough down time to recover. I ate well (tomatoes, eggs onion garlic, curry, ezekiel bread, watermelon, grapes, etc.) Then I felt light headed and extremely tired. (Did I mention sore?) I took a nap, and to my horror, discovered that 45 minutes later, I had grown a dark black curly hair on the tip of my chin.
Seriously, it grew within 45 minutes. I promptly cut if off, and reminded myself to check on hormone levels and side effects of....... Wow. Still felt woozy. Kids were coming home. I drank a little coffee (not much) and then took care of them for several hours.
Six year old is still dealing with chronic constipation. Another accident, but very small. I really must make time to research all possible causes. He is gluten free and lactose free, but something is obviously still wrong. He will sit down with encouragement, but he just doesn't seem to recognize the need until it is almost too late. Will I use the traditional method of cleaning him out? Or will I use a more natural approach? Decaf coffee, apricots, etc.
I had to take a second power nap. Crash. Now I feel better. But there was no getting around it. I am craving grape juice and will continue to fill up on that for the rest of tonight. I also experienced side cramps. Those haven't happened in quite awhile.
Ok, get through this test. Big race this weekend, which I am running just for fun. Spring Break next weekend, time to play with kids and visit family. There is actually money in the budget to get back to the ND, and I still have insurance for the moment. The lab is expecting me for bloodwork because I wanted to see if a traditional blood draw would reveal some of the same things that Dr. Julia discovered. (Low calcium, anemic, etc.) We will see.
