Well, I'm down a solid 2 pounds since last week's weigh-in...even with a weekend of not so great choices (Friday, all day, was just NOT a diet day). I'm STILL feeling sick when I eat so my sister recommended writing everything I eat down and making a note of if I feel sick, and when so I can see if there's a pattern of foods triggering it. Mike thinks I have Crohn's disease because his roommate does and had a similar stomach issue before diagnosis. I think it's mostly mental because I really want to succeed at the weight-loss this time around...it's like my brain has decided that if I eat something moderately off my plan I should suffer. Uncool, brain, uncool.
I -haven't- been feeling sick at work, which is where I do most of my dieting; last week I brought eggs for breakfast most days, salad for lunch, and lots of fruit and veggies- a few carbs here and there, and usually a cheese stick and a yogurt. So maybe it really is those bad processed foods (even though I'm trying to not eat too many) and carbs at home. Yesterday it started when we had pigs in a blanket as an appetizer... then I barely ate any dinner. Even though my tummy hurt I ate dessert (because I made it!) and honestly, I already felt icky so why not.
These stomachaches aren't passing quickly, either, so it's not just from being over-full. They literally will last the rest of the day. So, this week I'm going to start food journaling again and see if it helps.
I have been terrible about my workouts although I try to sneak in some squats or abs here and there. Haven't T-Tapped since Thursday, I think. I will get back on track, it's just been hard to do anything when I feel so ill. Saturday I literally spent all afternoon and most of the evening sitting on the couch. I just couldn't function.
Anyway, yesterday I didn't have a chance to pack up my lunch so I've got to throw together my salad, etc. and get ready for work. Camp starts today for us and I think I'm only going to have about 7 students as half my class moved to the next room (Spencer's class). Should hopefully be an easy day.
Happy Monday, Sparkies!
