hit a wall

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.
