Energy Sap

Thursday, May 15, 2014

I have been really low on energy for the past week or more. Even getting down under 200 lbs on that scale didn't help to boost me enough out of this funk. Exercising isn't helping either. And I hate to say it, even think it, but I believe my insomnia is coming back as well.

I'm one of those outwardly super-positive people, always with a smile, but tend to internalize. There are some stressors in my life at the moment that are overwhelming but out of my control, so I try and accept them and move on. But, I'm guessing that my body has a different reaction.

Mind over matter is not currenlty cutting it for me!

I wonder if it's the Isagenix, though this is week 5 and my body has adjusted quite well before now, so I don't think it's that. I wonder if I am drinking enough water, or if my iron is low.

I am just utterly and totally exhausted, no matter how much I am sleeping. Can't seem to knock it and I don't feel sick in any way. Just exhausted.

My body is trying to tell me something....I just don't know what it is yet!

    I'm not familiar with Isagenix but are you getting enough calories to support your activity level. Just thought I'd ask....

    I have the same problem. Mind tells body to stop worrying....body thanks mind...and continues to worrry, stress, fret, etc anyway.

    One thing you might try is taking some D vitamins. I really notice a difference in how I feel during the day if I miss my D vitamins. Maybe worth a try.

    Hope you feel better soon!

    Sorry to hear that. You & I are a lot alike and you're probably onto something with the internalizing. Stress can wreak havoc on us even if we appear happy on the outside. I know there are a lot of things that can get us down and are out of our control. However you are one step ahead by having a happy attitude and keeping yourself cheerful. I hope the energy level comes back soon. Maybe you should try a week off from isagenix and see how your body responds. Just don't give up - you are doing a wonderful job!
