Cortisol & me!
I’m getting married.
I’m also overtraining. Like a madwoman.
Against my own advice, I work out a minimum of 90 minutes A DAY.
Consequently, I’m eating everything in sight.
Since I have a billion things going on at once, I’m also sleep deprived, getting only 6-7 hours per night.
Plus, I feel emotionally and physically drained.
Clearly I have extra cortisol pumping through my body. Cortisol is a hormone that helps regulate blood pressure, blood sugar and helps fight stress and inflammation. So basically, I’m shooting myself in the foot. I’m burning the candle at both ends by breaking my body down and not allowing it to heal.
There. I said it.
