You know that level of frustration? The one where you feel so low you're ready to quit? I cannot figure out what's going on. I felt like an elephant tromping around the living room today. Everything was louder-my jumping and landing on the wood floors. Everything was more jiggly. When I was lifting weights I could see cellulite in my arms. It was not my day.
I struggled through the workout which, by the way, was the SAME as yesterday because I clicked the wrong one! So that added to my bad mood. I didn't have any more gum so my mouth dried out really fast. I ran out of water...Are you seeing the trend?!
Right after the workout I grabbed some more water and went upstairs to shower. It wasn't until I was disrobing that I noticed that maybe it's not that bad. And then when I was shaving my legs--I have to lift my leg up to the shelf, about hip height, the humongo pooch from my belly that squished against my thigh....well, it wasn't really there. Where had it gone? Oh yeah, AWAY!
I have to remember, it's only been just over a month, I'm making progress but it's baby steps. I can't change what I've done to myself over night. It's a process and I'm on the right track.
Tomorrow is weights and measures and I'm a little worried. Yes, my clothes fit better--actually they fit worse. They're too big! Oh, and that's one weird uncomfortable thing. My pants are too big now and are hanging lower, so now my upper thighs rub together and hurt! How's that for a visual?
But other than that I'm not sure I'm losing the weight. Lots of muscles are popping through though. I just have to keep moving.
Water (no tea or coffee)
Breakfast burrito-egg, spicy turkey sausage, cheese, hot sauce
Avocado and tortilla chips
I might try to make chicken enchiladas for dinner tonight. I need more ideas. Anyone? Anyone? Beuller?
Okay, so I think I may have figured out why I was having such a hard time today. The other day I noticed one of my glands was swollen (hubs is now battling a cold). A day after that I was more phlegmy than normal. This afternoon I laid down on the couch, my head perched on the hub's lap, and the puppy cuddled on top of me--and I thought I would just snuggle for a minute. An hour later I woke up. I'm definitely fighting something off. But if it weren't for my exercise and daily vitamin I might be feeling even worse.
