Whole30 Day 33:
Results: Unfortunately I didn’t measure before I began, but i did weigh and I lost 17 lbs!
I was feeling so great, I was on a roll. I haven’t reintroduced anything yet. I decided to keep going because I felt fine.
Only, now I don’t feel well. I do realize that thirty-plus days cannot reverse some of the conditions that I deal with, but its very disheartening all the same. I recognized the symptoms. Nausea followed by soreness and fatigue, and then not getting anywhere with exercise. Yesterday, I couldn’t complete one blogilates video. And I’m craving sweets again. I’m so disgusted!
But, I’m not giving up. The fact is that I’m going to feel sick once a month, I have struggled with this for years. Maybe its one of the reasons I’ve given up in the past?
My strategy when PCOS rears her head? Exercise gently. Eat a sweet potato. Curl up with a book. Because hopefully I will be back to feeling great in a few days. And, maybe after time sticking with it, I will heal. And if not, then its my suffering to bear, and in the scheme of the problems in our world today, this is small.
In any case, lesson learned.
