Weekend, I miss you already

Sunday, May 20, 2012

Why are weekends only 2 days long? Surely it's time to bring in 3 day weekends?

So I think I may have figured out what's been wrong with me recently. A while ago I lost my medicine for hypothyroidism and so last week I went to the doctors and got some more but it takes a while to build back up in my system and I take it haphazardly at best. I think the outcome of this was my depression and exhaustion last week.

Thankfully I'm feeling much more like myself this week. I'm annoyed at myself though because on Thur I'd lost 5.5lbs and then on Fri I had a carb breakfast (cereal) and one glass of champagne on the Thur night (a friend was leaving Dubai for good) and it made me put on 3lbs!! Damnit! Why am I so super sensitive to carbs?!

It makes me sad.

So the plan for this week is to remember that for me carbs are the devil and to drink much more water. I'm finding it hard to drink water at the moment. I just don't want to so it's an effort to make myself drink. I find it hard to believe that at one point I was drinking 5 LITRES a day. crazy.

Spark on everybody!

    People get up in the night to take them?!! That would never happen with me! and it seems I'm taking them wrong anyway because I usually take them just before or just after breakfast. Oops! Maybe I should start taking them mid afternoon instead so no food either side.

    I put a small amount of pure cranberry juice or lemon juice in my water... just enough to flavour it. Makes it easier for me to swallow!

    We are having a 3 day weekend in Canada. Usually it's cold and miserable here in Ontario for the May 24 weekend, but this year it's sunny and warm. I won't be on the computer long today!

    Be well!

    3-day weekends would be awesome! (But not good for the weight loss, I'm sure...)

    That darned thyroid really does mess everything up, doesn't it? You really need to be strict with yourself regarding the meds. You should take your meds first thing in the morning and not eat for at least 30 minutes. Some people get up in the night to take them, or take them right before bed.

    This comes from the woman who forgot to take hers all day Friday. emoticon
