A crazy thought went through my head: what if I'm over-exercising? It's crazy because I don't exercise very much. 25 measly minutes of fasted cardio 6 days per week. 1 hour of lifting three days per week (with 3 minutes of rest in between sets!). And a few hours of walking each week. This is nothing!

But I acted on my crazy idea. No fasted cardio and no walking today. I did, however, do some chores (cooking and laundry). And I felt pretty good today. I still felt the need to lay down for a little while, but I didn't go to sleep in the middle of the day, and I didn't have much trouble getting up. Most importantly, no brain fog!

So what gives?! Is my body, my love of which I so recently professed, such a piece of trash that it can't endure a little bit of exertion? Am I still not getting enough protein?

Maybe it's not the exercise. I've been waking up feeling tired, but I felt ok when I woke up this morning. This was after lifting last night and, obviously, before I'd had a chance to exercise today.

I'm going to not exercise again tomorrow and see what happens. Maybe. I don't know what to do at this point. Maybe the fatigue is some kind of stress response. I did decide last night to not cycle today; maybe knowing that I wouldn't have to do fasted cardio increased my energy somehow. I do dislike fasted cardio...but that's only true since I've been feeling fatigued! I rather enjoyed it back before my digs burned down.

This is crazy. Some aspect of this must be all in my head.
