Phase 3: Week 3: Day 7

Friday, July 11, 2008

B: Oatmeal with a very small glass of grapefruit juice
S: grapes
L: Turkey chili w/ part-skim mozzarella cheese
S: grapes
D: Probably nothing b/c I have to proctor my students' final exam from 7 to 10 pm


I'm on campus right now watching my students take their final exam. The last day is always special to me b/c by this time, I become attached to my students. Sometimes I feel like crying when they turn in their exam and bid farewell to me. I see only a handful of them around campus afterwards, too. *sigh* oh well.

Lately, I have not been feeling hungry. Instead, I have been feeling very nauseated. I think it is b/c I'm so stopped up, and the extra waste doesn't know where to go now. I drank some Smooth Moves Tea today. I feel even more stuffed after drinking that. I decided to stop taking Yo-Plus and will also steer away from Fiber One b/c they both have too high of a sugar content. In fact, Fiber One has high fructose corn syrup and aspartame (which I know is also in Splenda). Yo-Plus contains refined sugar. I now need to investigate Activia and see what that has. Also, my digestive tract wasn't becoming regular even after 8 days of consuming the stuff. I've stopped the little pooping I was doing before. Oh well...

I plan to work out once my students finish their exam. I hope they finish before 10pm.

    Are you going at all? This is serious. In the a.m. before you put anything in your mouth... drink 8 -16 oz of warm water. It will help push stuff out. Are you drinking enough water? I don't like feeling backed up AT ALL!!!!!! I despise that STUFFED feeling in the intestines. Do you eat enough fiber. Oh I hate the feeling you're having. I want it to stop and I'm not even you!

    So what's going on now? It's been 4 days since your last blog. Let me know you're well.

    We recommend that you get at least 8 cups of water a day. Click the arrows to track the amount of water you have consumed. 9

    Hey, I was gone all day and decided to take a minute and check my mail and saw your recent entry pop up! I don't know what you should do about being stopped up. Hope it works out shortly. Maybe it is the special drinks!

    Best wishes for you to get out of school early!
