So, a little bit of background info first.
I do moderate-high intensity zumba classes for 1 hr 5x a week. I had been having some low blood sugar and it suuuucked. I have felt so tired for so many days and nearly fainted.
I have a family member who bought cookies and chocolate into the house and when I got home from the gym at about 8pm on Friday night, I saw the open package of keebler m&m cookies on the toaster oven and thought "screw it". Before then, I had eaten 2 eggs with some spinach and mushrooms for breakfast and cream cheese, cucumber, and ham roll-ups for lunch. I decided to try having an apple and some peanut butter right before zumba at 5:30 to combat the horrible low blood sugar I had been getting after classes, and it did help. But then I got home and saw the package in my practically candlelit kitchen, and there must have been some Marvin Gaye music in the background...
So I had about 7 cookies and 2 glasses of milk and it was woooonderful. I also had some chicken salad and ritz crackers and a couple glasses of water and I felt GREAT. My near-perpetual faint headache went away, I stopped feeling cold, I was running around the house. Felt better than I have in days. Even as I write this the following morning, I feel better than I have in awhile and I haven't eaten yet (though I really should since it's 1:15, I just haven't been hungry and I've been in bed all day). I've been doing low-carb since July 15 and go in and out of ketosis depending on the time of the month. I was 199 Friday morning and 201 this morning morning, but I'm not really concerned about that since I know it's not fat.
I've had a couple of moments like this over the past couple months but I always get back on track, hence how I've managed to lose 30 pounds so far. Just wanted to share how good it feels to be bad
