Am I doing something wrong?

Tuesday, August 28, 2012

I totally had every intention of actually excercising today!.... but it didn't happen. :_(
This morning started out with the whole morning sickness thing due to (so my doctor tells me) hypoglycemia, or low blood sugar. Apparently my blood sugar drops in the mornings and causes morning sickness in the morning.... believe me I get all the pregnant jokes with this... I'd rather have morning sickness from pregnancy than something like low blood sugar. Anyways it seems that since i've started tracking all my food and making a concious effort to control my portion sizes and choices, i still feel weak and shaky. I really wanted to get up and do one of my excercise videos today but I felt shaky all day. I kept waiting for the food from the previous meal to kick in and get rid of the shakes, but they never went away. I'm guessing that my body is so used to having tons and tons of extra calories that this limited amount is maybe starving my body??? I have no clue.
And my doctor said to help with the blood sugar thing that I needed to eat less carbs as too much inhibits the insulin my body makes or something like that. And she said more protein. So I took that as more meat and less breads and pastas... right? I'm trying really hard. Even going so far as having a fruit or doing without a side when I make mac n cheese for my family. Tho for some reason I feel like i'm doing something wrong. How am I supposed to get on an excercise schedule and get a routine going if i'm weak all the time? I am really hoping my body gets used to the less calories FAST cuz i'm tired of feeling like a puny weakling. :_(

    No I haven't called my doctor back. I don't have health insurance so I hate bugging the doctor people since i'm one of those financial hardship cases and I hate how they treat me as less sometimes. My lady doctor was great and so nice, but the only thing really that she could tell me was I needed to lose weight to get pregnant and the nurse practitioner at the free clinic is so busy it is almost impossible to get her on the phone to ask her anything. And if I was to go up there to see her i'd be in the waiting room for 4 hours again. So unless something gets serious I prob won't go back to the doctors again. And that's ok. I haven't had health insurance since the day i turned 18. I've trudged thru many sickesses before in the past years and prob will get thru many more on my own. It's too expensive and time consuming to try to see a doctor unless something is very serious. I have faith everything will be ok in the end if I just stick with it to the end. Nothing horribly serious has happened yet, and even if it did we couldn't afford to get whatever it is fixed. But thanks anyways!

    Fruit is a carb as well but one your body uses more efficiently. Same with potatoes and corn. Beans can be a good source of protein if you need a substitute for meat. Have you spoken with your doc since you began changing how you eat? They may have some insight.

    I agree...talk to your Dr. They will probably know what you need to help with that. Take it one step at a time and don't get discouraged. It will all fall into place, just keep trying. Don't give up.

    Small changes.... You can do it! Try to make a protein shake in the morning or a smoothie. I found an easy recipe- unsweetened frozen fruit, a banana, a little bit of juice-oj or other juice that you like- blended up.
    It ends up not being too expensive because 1 bag of fruit and 1 container of juice makes many smoothies! emoticon emoticon

    I was thinking it may be withdrawal so to speak from the sugar you used to eat as well. Talk to your Dr. and just keep on going. You are doing great! emoticon
