Crippled myself :(

I may have overdone the exercise. I didn’t think it was working so I pushed myself quite hard. I regret that now because suddenly my muscles have started really aching. I’m stiff and it is so uncomfortable. I can’t stay still otherwise it is a lot more uncomfortable. If I move around a bit then I don’t get stiff and seize up. It doesn’t last long but I’m going to have to get through this stage. I know that I’m stupid. I should have taken things a little easier but I was really wanting to lose weight. I like to give everything 100% effort. I wore my brain out before I physically started to feel strained. I got brain fog first and then all my muscles started to kick off. I hope this passes soon because its extremely uncomfortable.  I’m tired and I can’t sleep feeling uncomfortable. I may be awake all night unless it eases off. I found it difficult to get up due to my lower back seizing up earlier. It still aches but is less stiff. I’m stressed out because I just want to sleep but I can’t in this state. Half of me wants to get up for a painkiller to dull it a bit. The other half of me refuses to rely on painkillers ever again due to my former addiction to a painkiller. I’m not in pain but it’s just uncomfortable. I don’t feel pain so intensely since I gave birth to my son. I just don’t feel pain like I used to do before I went through that. Everything is more of a dull ache or feels like pressure is being pushed down on my nerves. Migraines have felt crushing but intense pressure rather than pain. I am quite tough for someone who is only 5 ft 2. I’m no weakling otherwise life would have finished me off by now. I am certain that I will feel great after this uncomfortable muscle strain passes. It is just unpleasant right now.

  1. Deep heat? Otherwise keep moving (well, I mean the usual amount) so it doesn’t seize up. And don’t overdo it! Speaking as someone with a history of doing exactly that. If you’re getting “brain fog” from exercise you may be giving yourself hypos or something which isn’t a good place to be; they can make me really depressed the rest of the day. Good sleep and diet will help you lose more weight anyway so stay off the sugars and carbs…

      1. They make me feel awful. Actually, wrong, they make me feel awesome… briefly, then the carb crash happens about 30 minutes later and it’s a price I find isn’t worth paying. I get lethargic, moody, depressed and just bleh for absolutely ages afterwards. It may depend on one’s personal metabolism etc but I find fats are much better for me, I mean if I calorie-count so it’s an equivalent: they don’t cause that rush-and-crash thing I get, they’re less likely to cause additional weight gain and they taste better. I dare say they’re probably healthier in general too. Though obviously avoid any of that hydrogenated shit.
