I dropped five pounds within the first week of Induction. Now, the scale has gone up as high as 2 pounds. I've been weighing myself daily, which most of you will say is bad I'm sure. Maybe you're right.
I'm wondering if I'm actually not eating enough. I'm sure that could be a factor contributing to it. Another thing (I'm sure) is my water intake. I'm trying hard to drink as much water as possible but it has definitely proven to be difficult unless I have something in it. And I can't use too much of the drink mixes because I know they have artificial sweeteners in them, even if it is just Splenda. I'm in a tight spot!
I'm a little nervous about going home for the weekend. My family knows I'm eating a very strict low carb diet right now, but my husband's family does not. We will be having lunch on Sunday with my in-laws, and I will make sure I have a salad or something on hand. I'm not sure if we're eating out or not yet, but I'm hoping we eat out because I know I will have more options than sandwiches at their house.
I found a delicious breakfast this morning that I'm going to start making as egg cups in my muffin tin. It's two eggs, a splash of heavy whipping cream, 1/4 cup shredded cheddar, and a small squirt of the basil that comes in the tube. Then, I eat it with a tiny bit of dijon mustard. It's a wonderful breakfast that fills me up.
Yesterday I was in a funk about studying. The subject was Contracts and I just felt like everything was getting jumbled in my head. Today is making my feel better though. So far, I have reviewed the Property questions from my simulated exam and done 18 questions, of which I got 14 right. Yay!
I apologize to any of you who may be sick of me talking about the bar exam. It's a very relevant thing in my life right now, and just about the only thing I am thinking about these days. I thank all of you who have offered support and are thinking and praying for me through this. I just want to be done and be an attorney!
Have a fabulous weekend. Make good choices. I'm going to do so myself.
