I am still struggling, even after 12 weeks in the BL Sun-sational Summer Challenge, to eat enough calories.
I am taking some medicine right now for my Fibromyalgia that makes me a bit nauseated, and I'm sure the iron tablets don't help that a bit. I also have no appetite when I get up in the morning until around 12PM-2PM, therefore, I struggle to reach my caloric goals for the day, unless I eat something that is rather rich in calories. I don't like doing that because it makes me feel so heavy...weighed down...and it zaps my energy.
I need to eat more...especially breakfast. The medicine I take first thing in the morning must be taken on an empty stomach. Maybe that has something to do with my lack of appetite. I have also not had much thirst so I haven't been getting in all the water I need.
Nevertheless, one of my goals during the Fall Challenge is to plan better...to know what I am going to eat for breakfast the night before.
Not eating or drinking enough is working against my weight loss goals. This has to stop. Also, if I don't eat at least 1000 calories each day, I commit to no exercise the next day because it is dangerous for my heart.
I will be kind to my body and give it the nutrition and water it deserves.
