Insomniac Update

Friday, June 28, 2013

I know it's only been a few days, but I can't sleep, so I figured I'd post.

Things are going reasonably well. I'm using the food tracker here on Spark, which I've never actually done- I always kept a rough running count of calories going in a note on my phone or something and that was about it. So this is new and different. The first day, I wasn't actually trying to restrict anything, just seeing where I was. I was... over a bit for where I would LIKE my calories, but it wasn't outrageous or anything and still well under 2k- considering that I'm pretty sure I've been over that for most days in the last year, I'll take it. After that, calories have been reigned in to a range I'm comfortable with. Point 1 for me.

I've been weighing myself every day, even if that weight hasn't budged a single bit and I'm getting a little bit irritated. Point 2 for me.

(As a TMI aside here, I'm now officially eight days late, which I'm sure has something to do with the scale being so uncooperative. I'm also completely and utterly miserable. I'm sure you ladies know what I mean when I say that my body is having an absolute CONNIPTION at this point- I'm all super bloated and migrainey and crampy and it's just not a fun time. As much as I hate it, it needs to just get here so I can get it over with and move on with my freaking life already.)

It's not eight, but I've been increasing my water intake- I've now had two glasses of water for three days in a row now. Point 3 for me.

And I purchased more fiber gummies and have been actually taking them, two days in a row. Point 4 for me.

The food tracker has pointed out some things to me- while I've been, on average, in range as far as calories, fat, carbs, and protein, my fiber intake is severely lacking. Like. Barely in the double digits. Ungh. Need to work on that, but slowly, since apparently increasing it a significant amount in a short time will do bad things to my digestive system, which is the LAST thing I need right now.

So. Still needs work? Absolutely. But it's progress. I'll take it.
