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.
