Does anyone know how long it takes to not feel like crap while your body is re-adjusting to those "lower" numbers? Any insight would be greatly appreciated!
I know that this is my doing...I was the one who became more lax about my diet. I was the one who decided I deserved to indulge more during the holidays, which then carried into my regular diet. I was the one who started craving more sweets and decided to buy ice cream pints and eat the entire thing in one day. Although my diet has gotten back on track (mostly), my exercise routine has not. I used to be the person who worked out almost every day. At some point within the last 6 months+, I started putting in more hours at work and I started getting dizzier, and the thought of working out seemed like too much work. All I wanted to do after work was go home, lay down on the couch, and get something to eat. This unfortunately turned into a pattern...a very bad pattern, and it's something that I need to change because working out feels so good. Not only does it help stabilize my numbers, but it puts me in a better mood and makes me feel more mentally strong instead of wanting to collapse when the littlest thing goes wrong. It keeps those negative thoughts from spinning out of control and taking over. I know this, and now I just need to put it in action.
