Salt is thine enemy and other ticked off ramblings.
Thursday, August 01, 2013
I ate well yesterday right up until I got over-hungry after volleyball. We had friends over which was a blast, made ham steaks, maccaroni and corn on the cob. While this is NOT my usual diet, I had some of each with a side of tomatos. The ham steak and the carbs from the maccaroni made me swell up like a balloon. My body just can't handle the extra sodium. While I didn't gain any weight, I didn't lose any either--which is fine. But I feel bloated. Even my pants fit differently today. I wish I knew if this is an allergic reaction or just my body feeling like crap. Every one else can eat carbs and not look like a puffer fish in the morning. That and I woke up with a headache to boot, and a ticked off husband for who knows what reason.
We got married June 29th after being together for 7 years. It seems like he expected me to change once we got married. He is always walking around mad these days and questions EVERYTHING I do. I can't help but think maybe we made a mistake. How could it be a mistake after 7 years though? Uggh. I need a counselor.
Admittedly, while we were at his mothers this past weekend I gained a little weight. I am riding at 186 but am too stubborn to change my weight on the ticker till it goes down again. Still, I am very close to my goal of 160. And I am doing my best to stay motivated and enthusiastic about the fact that I have already lost over 60 pounds. And I only have 24 pounds to go.
