16 Days of Accountability- Day 1

Friday, February 01, 2013

I have a birthday on February 16th. I would love to feel great, and look great, on my big day. I fear that after the awful month of January that I may struggle to stay on track with my fitness and eating habits. So if you don't mind, I would like to blog daily to keep a level of accountability with myself and with my Sparkfriends.

Last night I had the social event at my new church, and I had a blast! I got to meet a lot of really nice people and had lovely conversations and such. It appears I will officially be converting to Episcopalian!
I did eat some spaghetti. I have a wheat allergy which requires that I take a dose of diuretic with consumption of a large amount of wheat and apparently I am out of that medication. No big deal- I'm just drinking lemon water and caffeinated beverages today to help rid myself of that bloat. I eat spaghetti maybe once every five years, so it's typically not an issue! I live primarily gluten free, and have for some time. So I didn't realize I was out of the diuretic.
I also had a lot of treats for desert and drank some red wine. But it was all worth it. A great time was had by all!

Today I am staying on track with my meals. I'm keeping my food tracker hidden for the time-being... just because I'm not always consistent with tracking. When I get back to tracking consistently I'll make it public again.
I start my new job on Monday! I haven't worked full time in awhile so it will be quite the transition!

I'm not going to post my weight today cause I know a lot of it is bloat. I'll weigh in publicly when I eliminate the bloat.

Here's me cuddling with my new rescue pup. She got her shots today.

    You will no doubt look good on your birthday. How you feel will be up in the air until that date. But I pray your feel as good as you look.

    I am just getting over a gluten exposure. The inflammation does cause a scale fluctuation!
    That dog is mighty fortunate to be with your family. Still so glad you have her.

    Happy early Birthday!!

    Sounds like Feb could be a turn around for you. Great that your new church were so welcoming. Sounds like you will feel at home there.

    I love the picture of the rescue pup. I am sure he is delighted to be home at last.

    No problem keeping us posted on your progress.

    Very cute pic! Congrats on the new job & I'm glad u had fun at your new church! I have a question. I've been told I have an allergy to gluten. What type of diuretic would I take for this & does lemon flavored water help? I also have a hernia & IBS but I get horrible stomach cramps, bloating & gas. Can u help? Please feel free to email me back, leave on this post or whatever is more convenient. Thanks!
