Yesterday's weight: 248.8, Today's weight: 252.3
This yo-yoing drives me nuts. I didn't even eat dinner last night. I hope it is just water from having too many carbs yesterday.
Today is a wacky day and I'm not getting much done already. My neuro thinks that my left sided weakness might be related to muscle spasms as I have knots in my arm and thigh so he started me on a muscle relaxer yesterday.
Trying to stay upbeat today as I could be at a Cubs game but am going to a ladies tea instead. Hopefully it will be nice. The last time I went the entertainment was not so hot and I heard last year it wasn't that great either. Some how I got out of it last year but I'm not sure how. DH will be at the Cubs game and then a Rush game for an complete male influenced day. Should be interesting.
I've been craving corned beef and french onion soup lately, not necessarily at the same time. I have had a Rueben twice but hadn't given into the french onion soup craving. Yesterday for dinner I gave into both as I had a half of a rueben and a cup of french onion soup. The craving is still here. Can't figure out if I am just craving salt or what the deal is but I guess it could be worse. I can pick up some cornedbeef lunch meat to use this week so that might help defeat this craving.
Well yesterday was a success only in that I didn't go thru a drive thru when I was out and about. I stopped at two gas stations and a target for something to drink because I forgot my water. I didn't make dinner as planned because we ended up at my sister's. It was fun and then didn't end well. It was her fault, not my nephews this time. Trying not to be annoyed about it but I really think I have to say something and it isn't going to be a pleasant conversation. Besides, knowing her, she will just ignore it anyhow. Ugh. Family DRAMA. I'm soooo over it. Dinner won't be as planned tonight either because DH won't be home.
ANYHOW! I started a new dose of BP meds last night. My blood pressure is good right now and I haven't taken my morning meds yet. I'm a little out of it but not sure if it is the meds or the late night. Not happy that I had to increase the meds even though I have lost weight but hopefully if it helps it will add to my energy level. I'm still getting short of breath at times and the dr said we need to get the BP under control before we can tackle it as it may go away when the BP is back under control. It hasn't been super high but apparently I am very sensitive these days to it being over 130/90 on either number. My pulse is often over 100 these days as well even when I am walking regularly.
Goals for Today:
Write 3 reports
Do at least 6 strength exercises.
Go for at least 1 10 min walk
Avoid the drive thru
Don't let the craziness of last night impact today's food intake
