Today was a rough start. I had to change up the plan a little to accommodate my late start. I work 2nd shift, but wanted to start waking up at 9AM everyday to fit in a workout and run a few errands. I could not gather myself enough to do what I needed to do. My alarm went off at 9am, but I laid there until 9:15am. When I got up to turn my alarm off I had a terrible headache and laid back down. I fell asleep and woke up just 10 minutes before my class was to start (I am also in school part-time). I hopped out of the bed trying to gather myself quickly to run out the door. There was not enough time for me to make my first meal, so I ate Snack # 1 which was 7 saltine crackers. Took my meds & checked gluclose levels then ran out the door. There was a short break between my classes so i ran home to make meal #1 and was finally able to get on track. It is still very difficult for me to consume 4 meals & 3 snacks a day. So far so good still, this book may just work for me. I also made the Sturdy Black Bean Soup and it was delicious! To make a little creamy, I pureed half of it. Just wanted to write something today. I checked my weight also, despite Dr. Ian warning to not do so and I am down 2lbs. I am looking forward to my scale on Monday 2/18, even if that is all that I have lost that is progress and that makes it all worth it.
