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. :_(
