Today was a rough day. For whatever reason, I felt like I got run over when I woke up. My sleep cycle alarm couldn’t wake me up, that’s a first. I attribute it to the carob. I have decided that carob will not longer be something I will have while going grain and sugar free. Although there is no sugar in it and it’s low GI, it is very sweet. I convinced myself that carob was just something I could have, but if something is too good to be true, it’s probably not true . . so I will ditch the carob from here on out while doing this.
I was also super dehydrated all day. After my swim I felt absolutely exhausted. It was also the first time in a while I wanted to binge eat . . . I was just so hungry. I need to up my calorie intake.
My WOD was good. The swim was good too. I think I have mentioned this, but swimming is where I think I have the most potential for improvement, so I want to spend the spring working on speed and efficiency with a few different approaches. Today I just spent time in the pool doing drills. I intend to do this probably once a week minimum. I will also start adding in tubing work after my WOD 2-3 times per week as well.
