Yeah, that happens to me sometimes too, especially if I’m doing something I haven’t done for awhile, and I’m finding the older I get, the definition of “awhile” is becoming progressively shorter. I get a restless body thing happening and my sleep sucks. I have found that when I’m feeling that way, an Advil can help. It’s not that my body is in pain, but it is uncomfortable. I hate taking pain relievers, so I don’t do it often, but when it’s bad I’d rather sleep.
As for exercise, I haven’t been doing much for a long time because every time I would work my body hard, I would get very hungry and then “eat too much.” This started before keto, and then I just continued on with that philosophy. I am on my feet most of the day, easily reaching 10,000 steps most days without trying too hard. However, I’ve come to realize that my body needs to be exercised if I want to enjoy an active life going forward. I took the philosophy that you don’t need to exercise to lose weight on keto too much to heart. While that may be true, it hasn’t been all that true for me, and so I’ve decided that I am going back to daily walks and weight training because that’s what works for me. So, last night I didn’t get much sleep either. Was too stubborn to take another Advil. Sigh.
And it doesn’t really matter so much when I work out as much as what I do, and how novel the activity or intensity is.
