You all know that I am finally finding my stride in the LCHF way of living and it has been good. I kind of fell off the wagon with the death of my husband…gained a few pounds, ate some junk and have not been in the weight side of the gym since he's gone. (that is what we used to do together…can't quite face it yet)
Anyway, I have been getting myself together and have had some great days hoovering around 100 all day. Aces in my book, love it! Yesterday was kind of weird as I started in the 70's and couldn't get it over 100 all day. Not bad really, felt fine…until this morning around 3:30 am. I just felt weird. Out of sorts and started that shake I get when I start to drop.
Testing revealed a 73, not really bad, but I didn't want to go back to bed with that feeling. So I had some meat and cheese, only about 4g of carbs, but it was enough to get me going back up again. Went to back to bed with a 101.
The weird thing is that it kind of shattered my confidence to do things today. I was worried about taking my walk with the pups. I felt uncomfortable emotionally. Maybe that has more to do with other events, but it made me feel dumpy.
I usually just kind of pick up and move on, but today was different. We talk a lot about the physical effects of lows on ourselves. But how does a low make you feel emotionally?
