Thank you for sharing this! I'm back to a more normal (for me) 28-32 day cycle now, so you know. My workout routine now includes a rest day and I also increased my calories by about 200-300 and upped my healthy fats by about 15ish grams - so my body fat percentage is up but my weight is similar, give or take a few pounds standard fluctuation.


Thanks for the info! It certainly all seems like a matter of numbers and getting the right equation to strike the necessary balance.
Is it easier for you to keep yourself where you need to be now that you know what your lowest healthy body fat percentage and weight are?
I'd like to take a rest day, but was diagnosed with LADA and find that exercise shortly after every meal is a huge help when it comes to glucose management - so sometimes I feel like i'm stuck in neutral on the amenorrhea thing. Eating and exercising sure have become a 24-hour-a-day, 7 day-a-week, second career! haha
Thanks lots for sharing, ginnyray Smile

I wouldn't say it's easier now - I hear you about the 24/7 struggle! - but I understand now that I value my physical/reproductive health more than my exercize & food compulsions today. What I was doing was multiply injurious. I just had to tamper it down some. Moderation is often as challenging as our more drastic efforts.

It's really great that you've been disciplined enough to set things aright for yourself! And I definitely hear you on the fact that moderation can be just as challenging
