Exercise - Who even am I???



Recommended Posts

I'm 9 months out and I haven't felt like I've had more energy than before surgery until this week. I feel restless if I don't get enough exercise, and I want to work out twice a day. I'm trying to be careful and vary the exercise from day to day so I don't get injured, and I still have a tendency to inertia, but it's definitely a huge change.

I notice since I'm losing weight my Apple Watch tells me I'm burning fewer calories for the same amount of exercise 😪 I know that's to be expected, but it's getting harder and harder to get to 500 calories burned in a day.

Do you get hungry from exercise? I only find I am hungrier after swimming.

I have been on an exercise streak the past 6 weeks. My routine is off the week because of guests and I am so antsy to get a work out in. I have no good advice, but just validating your experience because I am going through the same thing.

I do get a bit hungrier with exercise, but not too terribly.

yes - I think it's pretty common to get hungrier when you exercise. Your body wants those calories back that it burned off!

So here is what I notice: if i run in the morning, i am STARVING (for me, which is probably just regular hungry for everyone else, lol) when i get back.

BUT i think this has a lot to do with the fact i dont eat in the mornings. Yet even noticing this correlation, i still won’t eat before an AM run cuz I prefer to run on an empty stomach as otherwise i find i run slower and want to quit sooner. 🤷🏻‍♀️

On (very) rare occasions i may give in the the “starving”-after-AM-run feelings, but mostly i don’t, because i know what eating so early in the day does to me (i get tired, feel bloated, end up eating more by EOD, etc).

On the other side of things, when i run later in the day or evening, it has no effect 🤷🏻‍♀️

I also don't tend to eat in the morning, or until about 11. I have iced coffee with a lot of milk and that seem to be enough most days.

I wouldn't want to swim on a full stomach. I know that thing about getting a cramp and drowning is BS, but I don't think it would be comfortable. I swim as soon as I get up in the morning normally, except on vacation, but then I'm eating more anyway.

I run and do my spin classes in the middle of the day, before lunch. So I go home from work, (live super close), get changed and run for 20 minutes then do a spin class for 20 minutes. I have a latte and coffee prior to my workout, have my Protein Shake and cheese afterwards.

For me I am always hungry in the evenings, the morning and afternoon are kind of a non event for me. I usually take one rest day from exercise a week, I don’t normally Notice a change in hunger levels that day.

Everything is always different for me. Often I want to eat before playing sports, I'm starving. This goes on for about half an hour and I need to drink a lot of Water and eat a Protein Bar. My workout can last from an hour to two, depending on how much strength I have. Also, in addition to regular training, I like to ride this bike, which consumes a lot of calories, and I want to eat. In such cases, I stop and drink plenty of water, it helps to get home.

      Having gall bladder surgery in a few days and I so hope the recovery is easier than the one from the modified DS! I could use a bit of luck/pep talk for a change. I'm starting to be able to walk around without experiencing dizziness, but it would be great if the random pain in my chest and abdomen would go away!!

      Today was rough...
      I've been experiencing a headache all day today that just won't go away. I'm thinking it's now progressing into a migraine. Does anyone else get headaches from taking vitamin B12? I did some research and learned that usually a lack of B12 causes headaches. But I've noticed when I take it, I have reoccurring headaches. 😫
