What’s Wrong With Me?

I am seriously struggling over here. Basically since school started, I have lost all of my energy. I can barely wake up in the mornings and once I do, I struggle to stay awake. Once I get home from my evening classes, I’m in the bed within the hour. Even though I haven’t been getting up like I should to go to the gym, I managed to still run 10 miles last week. This week…uhhh, that’s a different story. Still have today, tomorrow and Saturday to get my legs moving though.

This is truly perplexing me. At first, I contributed my lack of energy to my new schedule. Spending 13+ hours in school mode is mentally draining. I have pretty much always adapted to chance easily, especially with schedules. It usually takes my body about a week to adjust to waking up at a certain time. So school is not the culprit.

I began to think about any other changes that have gone on in my life recently. Veganism! It hit me. Today makes 31 days since I have kicked all animal products out of my life. Because of that (and not having certain elements to cook with) I barely consume 1000 calories daily. On the days that I work out, I am burning off what little bit of food I do take in. Because of the elimination of many foods from my diet, I take a couple of supplements. It didn’t dawn on me to take iron. It’s funny because when I ate meat (red meat like crazy back in the day) I suffered from anemia. Once I went vegetarian, my iron was always in good standings. I wonder how it is now as a vegan. Yesterday I began taking an iron supplement just to be on the safe side. I probably need to start drinking even more water than I do now. Other than a little no-sugar-added juice once a week, water is all I drink anyway, but I can probably drink even more.

I don’t know what it’s like to be pregnant, but I swear that’s how I feel. I am going to continue with the iron, maybe find other eating alternatives so I can eat more. I’ll see how things go for the next week or so. If I still lack energy, I will go in to get some blood work. This might be the end of my vegan lifestyle. We’ll see. I got to get back to normal! I miss blogging and writing and exercising and just feeling phucking normal. Sheesh.

Blessings & Prosperity!
