So, yesterday, the official start day of Comp. prep went really well. There was one meal where I waited a little too long to eat and my blood sugar went low and I felt a little shaky but after I got some food in me I was good today.
Today, I had another blood sugar issue. My diet is low in complex carbs (or any carbs for that matter) because of my PCOS. However, I think I need some fruit carbs in the first meal of my day, after my 1st cardio session, because by then my blood sugar just feels really low. So yeah, I was at work and started feeling kinda queezy and shakey again. I thought it might still be the stomach flu but when I think back on it, I think it was more likely a dip in my bloodsugar. Well, of course I didn't have anything sugary with me (who needs the temptation) so I drank a snapple iced tea from the vending machine and had 2 small christmas cookies (ok, 4 cookies!). I immediately started feeling better. I really trust my coach but I also know how my body is. I went back into my old diet journals and looked at my meals even then, when I was losing at a really nice pace, I didn't take all fruit out. So, for now, I think I'm going to have 1/2 an orange with my Meal 1 and 1/2 with my Meal 6. I'm also upping my almonds from 1/3oz to 1oz per day because I think I do better with a little more fat. If I try this for a week and I'm not losing then I'll pull 1/2 the orange out and 1/2 an ounce of almonds but I think this will work and keep my blood sugar more level.
