Day 1 under my belt - WHEW! It wasn't even bad. I think my body is so full from food I've eaten over the last month that it's not noticed the deprivation yet. ROFL
I had the most aggravating night last night! Got in bed at 1:15 am. Just as I started to drift, "beep, beep, beep." My cell phone was dying! I woke up my darling husband and told him my problem and reminded him that I am just blind without my glasses. At 1:15 am, he can't remember to point out that my glasses are on the nightstand. Haha. So he gripes and mumbles all the way to the plug in but gets the job done.
I drank water not too long before bed, so my bladder would NOT cooperate. I guess it's because my body has forgotten what water is. I would feel like I was about to have a bladder explosion and then only tinkle... 6 different times between 1:15 and 2:30 am. Ugh. No UTI or anything. I just do that after not drinking water for a while and then restarting.
Not to mention, I have a crick in my neck... like day 4 now. That was really irritating me, too!
Right at 3:00 am, our 3-1/2 year old comes in the room and crawls into bed with us. Huge bummer. At this point, I am getting really irritated. Poor hubby has had just enough sleep to make him cranky from getting woke up so many times. We let the boy in the bed. He tosses as turns and headbutts and karate chops us in the neck. We get up and tag team making a nice, comfy pallet in the floor. We lay him down. ::::whimper, cry, whine:::: "I'm scary down here," which is his little way of saying I'm scared. He climbs BACK in the bed. He proceeds to accidentally rip my hair from my scalp and further kung-fu us. We put him back in the floor. Yay for the parents because finally I took him to potty while I went for the sixth time and then we told him pallet or his room. We won!
At 7:00 am, middle daughter is a ray of sunshine. Oh how I wish she were a dark, gray, heavy rain cloud. ROFL. Anyway, you get the point!
Oh, and a good homeschool friend of mine who is 40 years old and has two daughters - 3rd and 5th grade - had a stroke the other day! She is doing good physically but it has really messed up her speech and language skills. Visited her in the ICU the other day and at that time she could only say yes, no, okay, and good. It is so traumatic when something major happens to someone you are relatively close to. You start realizing, - that could've been me! I dreamed and dreamed about her and her situation last night. So even when I was sleeping, I didn't get any rest. Please pray for this lady as you remember - Dana.
As you can imagine, I was crabby this morning. First thing I did was start filling my water bottle with ice. Ice went all over the floor and everywhere but my water bottle. I was ready to order Little Caesars Pizza for breakfast right then and there. LOL
But I forged onward, my friends! Here was my day.
Oikos blueberry Greek yogurt, a clementine, and 2 turkey sausage links.
Decided to have supper at lunchtime today so we didn't get stuck in a rush heading out to church tonight. I had a Healthy Life bun, 4.5 oz of Cade's Cove vinegar pork, steamed broccoli with 14 grams 2% cheddar, and a small baked potato with 14 grams ICBINB and FF sour cream.
Supper was a Lean Cuisine panini and 28 grams of Baked Ruffles.
I got ready for church and just did NOT feel like putting on tights. But it's really cold, so I didn't want to wear my shoes that I wear without socks. Then I remembered an old pair of socks stuck in my drawer from my teen years! LOL I'm nearly 34. These babies are antique now. They aren't knee socks, or that would've been fine. I put them on and almost took them off and put on tights. Then I stopped and thought... who cares how you look! People constantly are seen in Walmart in their PJs, for cryin' out loud! Haha Do you ever have times like that? I don't know if it's being overweight or being older or being a mom and not having the energy to care, but I have more and more moments like this lately. Lol I couldn't resist snapping a pic. In my defense, my denim skirt was super long and covered up everything once I let go of it after the pic. ;)
On the way out, I grabbed an apple and some water.
When I got home, I was hungry per usual! I decided on a can of tuna in water, 5 LF saltines, and some pineapple chunks in 100% juice.
I decided to drink some Yogi tea with it.
In a nutshell: I'm happy that I only went 1 point over my allowance today. I usually do much more damage than that when I track. I didn't do any form of exercise because out of nowhere my knee slipped out of socket again yesterday. :::sigh:::: I am really not happy with how this is looking for me. I keep reminding myself that I'm at my heaviest weight ever, though, and that surely can be compounding my issue. I got in my 80 oz of water today. It was hard since I'm not used to it anymore, but I'm glad I accomplished it! It is now only 11:24 pm and I'm going on to bed!!! Wish me better luck tonight! Lol
