For years, when I intensively exercised my BS might go up 20 or 30 points while and right after exercise. After my body cooled down it would return to normal. I always figured exercise was overall a good thing and worth the bump up since the rest of the time I was probably lower than if I didn't exercise.
This week I went from moderate aerobics to pretty intensive circuits. My BS shoots up about 20 points and then stays there. My body will crave carbs but if I eat them it elevates my BS even more. I have given in and eaten a piece of whole wheat toast after a 1 carb breakfast and workout and all it did was shoot me way up and I still felt awful.
I'm beginning to wonder if I need to not do intensive workouts. I have felt so awful this week I decided I wasn't working out this morning since I still have a final this afternoon. I took one on Tuesday and really struggled because I felt so awful. This one is a tough class and decided one day of exercise wasn't worth blowing it.
So will this get better? Why is my BS going up instead of down? Some of my best readings comes after a moderate workout, do I just keep going and hopefully intense will become moderate and I'll go back to seeing the benefits?
