Lesson learned. Do not do a bunch of unexpected exercise without proper fueling. If I'm going to do a double class at the gym I will have to bring something to eat inbetween, or make sure I am eating something that provides energy right before and right after. Like almond butter. I have discovered that my body reacts really well to Almond butter when I am exercising. I love to eat it right before a workout, it helps me keep my energy levels up. It's what I ate at the triathlon inbetween my events.
The rest of the day was wasted since I ate poorly the rest of the day and was so tired. When I get very tired I tend to eat, and it's usually snacky food. So I had popcorn and cookies, which is of course the most nutritious dinner and snacks. Yesterday I was recovering from Monday. I was tired and grumpy and felt kind of sick all day. That is what happens to me when I don't eat well. When I stick to my Whole 30 plan I feel great, when I deviate from it I usually REALLY deviate. That tends to be my pattern. I can't just eat one cookie, no I go all out and then I'm stuck feeling like crap for the next 48 hours.
Today I'm finally feeling better and I think I'm just going to do HIIT 15 today, and hit the gym tomorrow. We have lots of things planned for today. I'm taking the kids to the park this morning for playgroup so I'm going to miss my Zumba class, hence the HIIT 15 plan.
I made this recipe for breakfast this morning. It was pretty easy and it is something different. It has apples mixed in with the sweet potatoes. I never would have thought of that!
