I’m cranky. I’m easily agitated. I’m frustrated at work everyday. I’m hungry. I’m TIRED. I feel a little better if I can sleep for a loooong time. Weight is creeping up a little bit.
But I’m also lifting a little heavier each week.
I have a few ideas about what’s happening. Maybe all of these things are true. Maybe none.
- Work IS frustrating. (But for the last couple of years, I’ve been able to let things roll off my back. Why not now??)
- I did do a bodybuilding show the weekend before school started, so there really wasn’t any sort of down time to recover from the depletes. The job is physically draining and I started it this year literally drained. (TOTALLY worth it, by the way.)
- Perhaps I’ve been exposed to toxic levels of gamma rays?
- Let’s revisit this…I am lifting heavier, I’m eating a couple hundred calories over my burn (still around 220-250 g protein each day), and I need more sleep…maybe I’m growing? That would be cool.
