I am pooped! This is how a feel the first day back to school. My entire body hurts from trying to get back into the swing of things after the first day. I feel like that today. Everything hurts. I am so tired and achy it's ridiculous. It boils down to the worse timing ever.
I started monitoring, shall we say, my carb intake yesterday. Yesterday I had 63 grams or something. From readying up on various diets I know that people go way lower than that, but for me that was enough to upset my body's rhythm. I woke feeling dizzy and drained. I knew I needed to jog today because I haven't gone all week. I needed it for stress relief, but looking back, I probably should have passed. It was a good jog, but I just don't have the energy right now. I should have saved all my energy for my son's 2nd birthday party. We were busy from the second the sun was up until about 7 pm tonight and that is just not my cup of tea. I don't like being overly busy. I know some people thrive on it...not I. I definitely do not. I live for the days where we have no plans and nothing to do.
Anyways. I did my best today.
Jog burned 338 calories according to heart rate monitor.
Consumed only 1008 calories but 81 carbs.
When I am trying to limit carbs, I am having trouble getting enough calories in. I thinki just need to focus on the breads, pastas, and rice types of carbs. I just don't think of a fruit or veggie as being a negative!
I have a book on hold at the library called the 17 day diet and I am tempted to get my turn to read it. I can't wait for whoever had it checked out to return in! I downloaded a sample and the title is misleading. It doesn't last 17 days, it just has cycles that run for 17 days each. I am actually kind of excited to read about it. Apparently "the drs." and "dr. Oz" have talked about it on their show. That makes me want to think it is a little more legit. Maybe. It's still a diet and a diet is not what I want. But I have read a lot of review, even here on sp, and it sounds like a good way to develop good eating habits. I am trying to not think of it as a diet, but eating plan.
I have to get the book first!
Anyways, I look forward to my last day of spring break tomorrow and nothing is planned. Well, except laundry!
