Bonking, Again. . . Really?!

After 3 ½ years of walking this journey called health and fitness I still do not have a handle on the science of correctly fueling my body for exercise while keeping my calorie count down. Lately, I have been focusing on higher protein. So I go workout yesterday after taking a 2-week break during the holidays. I knew it would feel hard but it has only been 2 weeks right?? 20 minutes into the workout, I was done. . . . dizziness, nausea, headache. What!?!?! I mean we are talking me lying down on the cold floor trying not to throw up. . . . only 20 minutes in. I looked pathetic! Turns out, I did not properly fuel. I ate enough calories, I thought, and I concentrated on protein. I guess I did not have enough carbohydrates for the workout. I was done. . . . for the whole day! Tomorrow morning I have another workout session. This time I am going to try a recipe I found on Heidi Powell’s Blog. I will let you know how it works. I WILL get this down and soon because I cannot take anymore lying on the floor. It is mortifying and cold. ;)
