Lethargy

I'm just wondering if anything is wrong with me. Since last week, I've been feeling very drowsy & sleepy while driving to work. EVERYDAY! Creepy...

Today too...

It's so dangerous. I pinch and slap myself to keep awake, but none of it works. Its harder now cos I can't snack to keep awake...

It's supposed to be a time where my body detox, but unfortunately it doesn't seem so. Every morning (for the first week) I woke up for sahur and throughout the day, I'd feel so sleepy. So I changed my plans. I'll eat when I feed baby. He'll be awake between 4am-5am, and so I tried. The next week seems fine. But the week after (last week), I was tired the whole day.

I noticed a reduced appetite during sahur. I sometimes wake up in the morning feeling like I'm havin indigestion. Weird. Everyday by 2.30-3pm, I'll be struggling to keep my eyes open or brains functioning. I thought its just lack of sleep, but I don't think so. I really dunno. By 5pm, if I go for my run, I'll be allright after that. If I don't run, after breaking fast, on the way home I'll be tired again...I hope after this weekend, all will be fine. Lack of adrenalin rush? I secretly hope so, so that I have a stronger motivation after Raya. (Not that I'm not motivated now, its just that before fasting I barely have time to train, and now I'm expecting the duties at work to increase after Raya, so I just hope I can put in my miserable minutes, if not hours of running)

Now that Raya is drawing nearer, I've got mixed feelings...part of me is glad that there only 5 days left of fasting (due to the above) but the other part of me thinks otherwise. Oh well...
