Default Exercising on the Beach

Hi Gals-

How is everyone? I feel like I know all of you, because I lurk on here so much, but I never post. Everyone is so very inspiring, and I want to thank you for giving me the guts to go on the diet.

Okay. I am a huge exercise fan, but for some reason I am a bit chunky. I run 2-3 miles 5 times a week, and I lift weights. I have not been able to lose any weight---then I found out that I have PCOS, which is inhibiting the whole get skinny goal.

So I started Phase 1 on monday, and already lost three pounds. But I have to work out- if I don't work out every day, I go nuts. I'm an attorney, and I sit at my desk all day, and I just really need that endorphin rush that I get out of running. But I was running last night and I just felt totally pooped. My legs ached, and I couldn't wait for it to be over.

How much exercise should I be doing? Is it more beneficial to just lift weights during Phase 1, especially in light of the amount of protein we're allowed? Has anyone had this problem?

Michelle! Glad to see you come out of Lurking mode

On phase 1 a lot of folks have the same "symptoms" -- tired, draggy, foggy, headachy are some of the major ones.

Some of us opt to not exercise while on Phase 1 -- some of opt to do our normal routine, but less intensive until the body adjusts to SB.

upping your legumes, and milk/dairy helps!

Hmm...not sure about that since I suffer from too much energy on P1. You also have to remember that you aren't consuming most of the sugars you have been consuming (like fruit). So, without the fast-acting sugars like fruit juice, etc., your body my feel a little more tired after exercising.
