Frozen by fear
I got an email the other day from the school where I am getting my Ph.D. from. It is time to submit my premise for my dissertation and start forming a committee that will guide me through the process. Yikes. Yikes. Yikes. In order for that to happen I have to do a number of things first and I am literally frozen by fear. As soon I start to think about the things I have to do I feel like I get completely overwhelmed and just don't know where to start. UGH!!! I hate that feeling. But I have to face it, the premise it due in 3 weeks. Yikes.
In other news of the day, yesterday was pretty good. I felt really tired and draggy all day and I'm not really sure why. I ended up eating a bologna sandwich - on bread - around 1pm and shortly after started feeling much, much better. I'm not sure if I was hungry or needed some carbs. It was a kind of foggy feeling that may well have been my body switching over to fat burning, but I'm not positive and we had plans last night so I couldn't be like that. So I had bread. Then for dinner I had noodles. Oh, and a drink :) But it was totally worth it and fun to see family.
I did WOD yesterday and it was brutal. We didn't get home until 11pm last night but I am still going to the WOD this morning. I figure I can nap later. I also need to retool my eating a little. Maybe I need to eat more. Maybe I need to include a little more good carbs. Not sure, but I definitely need to tweak it a bit. Maybe I just need to get through that fuzzy, lethargic phase. I don't know. I'm eating, I just think I need to eat a little more.
Interesting how the pendulum has swung. Used to be that overeating was my chief problem. I would just eat too much of the bad stuff. Now I struggle to get enough calories in. Ugh!!! Why can't life be simple????
