So I had my first "odd" exercise experience this evening. Not quite half way through my Body Pump class, I got VERY dizzy. Not just light headed, but "find a wall to hold me up" dizzy. I stepped out to get a sip of water and immediately felt nauseous. I didn't even go back into the room. (Apologized at the front desk for not putting my weights and stuff up!) I sat in the locker room for a few minutes until the dizziness subsided and then headed home.
I've been trying to figure out what (if anything) was different tonight. I had gotten in 56oz of fluids and 65g of protein before going to class, so I don't think nutrition was the issue. It was slightly warmer in the room this evening. I did increase the weight for my squats and was sweating by the end of that tract - but not breathing too heavily or anything. The only other thing I can think of is maybe my blood pressure is low. Tonight I feel a little sluggish, but I've drank more water and rested. I'm going to see how I feel tomorrow and if there are any noticeable dizzy episodes, I may call bariatric center to see if I can drop by for a BP check.
I can't believe I'm about to type this part, but I was really bummed that I couldn't finish the class! Maybe that means exercise and I are getting closer. That's not a bad thing, right?
