I am slowly learning from the last three days that my body does not handle sugar anymore! Or crappy fast food. My intestines have been super crazy the last few days. Why? Less fiber for sure. Added in a ton of empty calories of sugar, yep... aaaaand then throw in a fast food breakfast yesterday and you can see why my guts are very talkative.
Haha... that's one thing I didn't expect with eating healthy. I, sorry for TMI, stopped farting. Who'da thunk, cut out sugar, cut out gas. I mean logically it makes sense, but dang -- I didn't realize what a gassy mess I must have been. This is just weird. My stomach is still rumbling in protest over my diet the past few days.
I didn't have eggs in my house for my normal breakfast, so I splurged with McDonalds and justified it because I had to be at work early yesterday to rush and try to get stuff done... and guess what... I used to justify fast food a lot 80+ pounds ago. That is something I need to stop doing for sure.
I can have fast food if I want it, and I realize what the caloric intake is going to be. I should not have fast food because I feel like I DESERVE it or because I feel like I need to be REWARDED for some stupid reason, you know, like just doing my job...
So that head space is sorta gone. Hopefully I've turned a corner. I had a gummy worm binge yesterday afternoon. Felt AWFUL afterward. Seriously awful. The sugar crash/nasty aftertaste/and now gas is enough to make me avoid those gelatinous devil worms. I had planned to make alcoholic gummy worms for the recruitment party... but... yea... probably not anymore since I ate 2/3 of them... I might just toss the other worms in the trash. My guts would agree with that decision.
So today, I had my eggs and center cut bacon (seriously people, its the same calories as turkey bacon = but its real bacon!) and some soy milk. I also made myself a protein infused chai tea for work. I've been up since before six -- so since then I've already had 58 grams of protein! Haha, only 2 grams to my daily minimum. I've been definitely trying to shoot for over 100 every day. Those are the good days.
The past few weeks weight loss was due to cutting down on sugar and carbs, and increasing water, and increasing protein. I need to get back to that. Add in some fiber from fruit or broccoli, and I should be good.
At least I'm trying to be. I have a freakin' headache that won't quit. Drugs aren't helping, caffeine isn't helping, so I might go take some more allergy meds soon. I have to get my experiments done quick this morning (just feeding some cells and splitting some into plates -- ahh science), and then I get to head back home. The carpet guy is going to be there from 11-1. I just want this over with, so I agreed to let him come today.
My mom will be in later tonight -- so we'll get to packing up some stuff and cleaning. Hopefully no fighting. Hopefully low stress. I'm getting a bit overwhelmed with the amount of stuff I have to do to graduate... and *gasp* stop going to college!?! I mean, I've been in college for 10 years! What do people do after college? Get REAL jobs? With set work hours? Yikes... Oh well. It will all be worth it when I make my sister call me Doctor. She's an MD, so she thinks my PhD is frivolous (yes, this is my family, we are insane, and my sister and I are trying to out educate each other).
So in the cycle of bad day, good day... today is a good day. Hopefully I can keep this streak up.
And now for something fun. I spent a few hours last night fiddling around with my nails. Yes I said hours. I took my time. Played with colors. Some nail sticker... some glitter polish... I have mentioned my nail art addiction right? Anyway, here's my valentaine's day inspired mani. There was so much sparkle on my nails, my camera couldn't focus!
