Gut Buster

Monday, April 13, 2009

Yesterday I did my "controlled" cheat. It didn't come close to what I would have done in years past and it didn't give me blood sugar problems but it was enough to give me terrible bloating and gas. I guess I don't tolerate carbs much any more, which is good in a way. Nothing is worth that kind of abdominal discomfort. Cheating has become painful now as well as dangerous with my hypoglycemia.

I couldn't sleep last night either. I had heart burn and leg cramps which I haven't had since I started my diet in earnest and lost weight. I thrashed around until I'm sure my husband was ready to kill me. Heck, I wanted to kill me. LOL.

Today it was rainy so my son and I decided to clean the 6 chinchilla cages, clean the bathroom, vacuum, and do 3 loads of laundry. I took out the compost, fed the dog next door, fixed 3 meals and ran the dishwasher.

I'm exhausted but of course I'm stubborn. I insist on getting in ALL my exercise too. But I'm not alone. My son just left for a hour or two of Taekwondo.

I must be insane but I feel I have to do this, especially after cheating. I have 30 minutes left of exercises to do but I will have to break it up into segments because I'm SORE!!!

Sometimes I wonder if my discipline borders on an unhealthy fixation. All I know is I feel like dog poop when I don't get my exercise in and I'm content when I do.

    i sometimes wonder the same about me? But its also helped me to win & keep it in place too. As long as you stay healthy & uninjured, its all good.

    You can do it! I was going to say that it sounds like you got plenty of exercise in with everything that you did today, but if you don't feel good when you don't do your regular exercise, then just do it! Today was the first day in the last month that I didn't get my 10,000 steps in but I'm not going to obsess over it. I was sick so I just have to rest and know that everything will take care of itself. ~Paula

    Keeping up with your exercise does a lot to make you feel better about yourself too.
