    That said, eating twice a day is not enough for someone doing heavy training of any kind.

    What's your weight been doing?
    Staying pretty level around 155. I don't really have time/money to eat more than twice a day. Usually lunch/dinner is what it is.

    You dont eat breakfast?? Tut tut young man... I alway have a box of cerial and a bottle of milk handy in the morning. Quick and easy.
    Its not overly expensinsive, i know how you feel though, as a poor uni student living off crap Lifeguard shifts- i need money constantly, thank god i dont drink...

    If you have a cheap pool nearby i might suggest some laps. Dont sprint it out, but swim an easy kilometer and see how you feel. Thats if you can swim ;)
    But you should talk to your doctor or another doctor about this, if he has no ideas then a sports specialist? If they aren't to expensive over there. You strange people and your ways...

    What I'm looking for are exercises that I can do that I haven't thought of yet. Stuff that'll keep me in shape but won't provoke my long QT syndrome to make me drop dead.

    I usually suck back a couple of cups of oatmeal while i'm checking my email at work in the morning. wash it down with a glass of green tea, that usually hold me until lunch.


    I've been having the same problem with my sleep all week too. no matter when i go to bed i always get up like 4 hours later and can't go back to sleep. then if i do manage to force myself back to sleep, when i get up for work i feel like crap and i've been having these weird headache/anxiety attack things at work.

    Neildo I've got similar sleep issues. I can't sleep more than like 7 hours unless I'm out cold by 10 PM, which is tough when you get home from training between 7:30 and 9:30 every night and also have a social life, plus junior year = lots of work, so it's tricky.

    I think it's light, though. When it's dark in the morning I can sleep, like... however late I want. But if the sun's out I'll be up by 8:30 no doubt about it.

    Apparently I had unbalanced thyroid hormones, too, which was aggravating the issue by making me sleep lighter and have more problems going to sleep. And then during the day I wasn't eating enough to keep up with my excessive metabolism so I'd feel good after eating for like an hour and then just crash. Not to mention that I'm relatively sensitive to blood sugar changes to begin with. I take iodine every other day or so, it helps keep my energy levels up for the day.
