This was ALMOST a success but I know exactly where my downfalls are and lies with me being an idiot!!
Here is a little background as why today my stupidity got the better of me. I am prone to fainting, I can be in a room that is freezing cold and all of a sudden feel very hot and possibly faint. This has happened for many years now. I also have low blood pressure. With this you would think that I would be careful to ensure I eat breakfast and drink plenty. Well around 90% of the time I struggle to drink 1 litre of water a day. My boyfriend and family on many occasions have told me off for only have my first drink of the day in the late evening probably with dinner.
Which brings me to today, I forced myself to have a drink this morning of water and a massive breakfast of two rye crackers....NOT! I was neither thirsty or hungry, which then leads to me being massively hungry in the evening (issues which I know I must sort out sooner rather than later).
After carrying out the household chores, I decided that I would then doing my final run of week 5. I managed about 18 minutes of the 20 minutes. The halfway mark was my downfall. The familiar black dots that come across my vision when a fainting spell is about to occur crept in...time to walk! All of this probably would have been prevented if I sorted my eating out and especially my water intake. After walking for roughly 2 minutes the feeling of fainting passed and I managed the remaining ~8 minutes which was left. Not without a much stronger sense of pain in my left knee which incidentally now has a bag of frozen peas on it and some pain starting in my right ankle.
Week 5 you may have won this time but I'll be back to face you!
