I'm not happy with the way I feel

and it's not for the reasons you may think. I'm exhausted and I can tell my blood sugar is unbalanced. It's not real bad, I'm not having a sugar crash or anything, but I know it's not normal. So I have absolutely no choice, I have to workout every day and I have to go back to eating whole foods. The workouts will help me get my energy back and eating whole foods will stabilize my blood sugar and help with my energy levels. So it begins tonight. Snack was grapes and string cheese, dinner will be salmon and Greek salad. I'm looking forward to feeling better.
