Happy Friday ya’ll!
Yesterday was a very tough day! I ended up throwing up several times yesterday for not paying attention to when I eat and when I take my medication. Not fun! I felt like crap most of the day.
So today I had to come up with a better game plan and play close attention to my meds schedule. This morning I took a tip from my friend Laura and got up in enough time to cook myself some Quaker oatmeal (not instant). I mixed a little Silk soy milk, sugar free maple syrup and raisins… YUM! At only 150 calories, 2.5 fat grams and 4 grams of fiber it was perfect and lasted me till lunch!
I was very pleased with myself for breakfast and made a huuuuuge mistake right after eating. For some reason I went against my cardinal rule of not weighing myself every day. I don’t know what I was thinking! I get on the scale and I had gained a half a pound! What the heck!? And that was with throwing up several times the day before! (again… not on purpose) I know I shouldn’t have gotten on the scale and I smacked myself for it. “I will not get on the scale till Thursday, I will not get on the scale till Thursday”.
I didn’t let it get me down. I held strong today with some fat free Snyders mini pretzels for a snack in class and water. I enjoyed a yummy Lean Cuisine lasagna and water for lunch. And as we speak I’m snacking on some cantaloupe and homemade iced green tea to try and cool me off in this 104 degree heat! I also did 60 crunches and lunges today… baby steps.
All in all it was a good day. I didn’t barf, and I was able to come home and not shove crap in my face after being in a cake shop that reeked of the sweet stench of cake batter and icing…
Now to conquer the weekend! Wish me luck.
