Day 8....skipped a few days due to kids having the stomach bug and and then having to go to the doctor again the following day because another child injured himself during practice. I walked as much as I could on Saturday, but was exhausted. 2 football games friday night, and 5 soccer games in a row on Saturday. Today was a confusing day. Doctor says I have something called "Adrenal Fatigue"....and that working out too much is actually hindering my weight loss. I'm supposed to get my adrenals functioning properly again before I see any weight loss. This is absolutely frustrating. She told me to just stick to walking and slowly move up into light weights...but to not over-do it. I don't see how I'm going to lose weight by just walking! I'm already not losing weight running and lifting 12-15lb. weights! I feel like I'm never going to get back down to the size I want to be. :( I also feel like being "diagnosed" with this is just another excuse, and that this isn't even a "real thing". Yes, I've been researching it....but no one I have spoken to (friends and family) even know what adrenal fatigue is! Of course, that just made me push myself harder, but the doctor says I'm not helping myself by doing that. She says I will have a very hard time losing weight if I don't get my adrenals back in shape first. Is anyone familiar with this?

**TODAY'S WORKOUT**
1) Walking App (switch from Running Workout)....35 minutes

Day 7....INSOMNIA hits again!!! :( Got about an hour and a half of sleep. Sorry guys, but had to forego my Running App workout this morning. I tried an energy shake/meal replacement, with some MCT Oil + adrenal support supplement in hopes it would help to rev me up....but it's a no-go. I could use a nap to be honest; but I'm attempting some light-weight (10lb. kettlebell, 15lb. kettlebell, and 12lb. weights) exercise just so I don't feel so lazy. I can't promise a long workout though. :( Hopefully I can get enough sleep tonight and get a good workout in tomorrow.

Day 5 (took weekend off, though I still managed to get all my steps in). Energy was almost non-existent, but motivation was there! Got home really late and didn't get to sleep until around 1 a.m.; BUT I did NOT want to start the week off lazy, so I made myself do SOME kind of exercise. I used the running app on my phone, but I'm not going to lie. I did more speed-walking and walking than actually running. I ran a few times in there, but my energy was low. I was worried that if I pushed too hard, it would be harder to push myself tomorrow. Amazingly enough, I still managed to get as many steps (if not more) and worked out longer today. I'm going to count that as a *win* because I could have just taken an extra day off instead.
