Due to sleep and ankle, made executive decision to stay low-carb but not restrict calories. Doubled fish oil today.
Sleep: In bed 9 hours, but in a rotten manner: 915p-230a and 415-8a. Wide awake about 130a, couldn't fall back. Got up to snack on almonds but felt so wide awake, ate full breakfast. Read until I got tired, back to bed at 415a.
Yesterday was high calories, so now what have I got to explain the terrible sleep? Nothing. Frustration.
Body: Still feeling the ankle, about the same as yesterday post-run, even late in eve. Low back a bit bugged when tossing/turning. Knees stiff as though I had a long run yesterday.
Felt unambitious at the Y, glad I had planned a very low-key day. Chins tougher than normal, all else felt solid. Cut out final planned set to hit lunch date. Walked out feeling better than walking in.
Brain: Spark-less. Frustrated by ankle and sleep and lack of fat loss (knowing that last one may be untrue, I have no objective measurement). Saddened by slow ankle recovery, and blaming low calories. Why can't I be Wonder Woman and Do All The Things??
Semi-defeated and beat down, but not completely. Close, though.
Debated afternoon nap but didn't want to impact overnight asleep. Vegged with TV, book, kitties.
