I am sweating my butt off...literally!

Can you sweat off a pound in half an hour??? Before I worked out today I stepped on the scales and it said 183.5...not great, but at least maintaining...then headed into the gym from the locker room with book in hand and got on the EFX for fifteen minutes, then switched to the stair climber for 15 minutes. I think I must have looked like I had just come in from the rain. I was drenched. When I came back in the locker room I stripped, wrapped in a towel, and headed to the showers. On the way, just out of curiosity I stepped on the scale again ~ this time it said 182. That isn't possible, is it? Could I have produced a pound and a half of sweat??? YUCK! and YAY! even though it is water-weight! So...needless to say, I had a good workout!

Since I have been working out so much again, I have noticed that my sugar level is off. I get a bit dizzy at times and feel a little nausea, as if I am about to pass out. I know it's b/c I am not taking in enough carbs to burn so I have added a few back in to my diet. Last night I ate a peach and today I am having some crackers. Really I think the fruit is going to be the key for me, though. I remember getting light-headed like this after a hard workout and my mother would make me drink orange juice b/c my sugars had dropped so low. I think I'll stock up on berries - and they have them downstairs, too. I love berries and they are really good for you.

So, still low-carbing and doing well...but I can't do induction while I am working out daily.
