I am exhausted. I’ve had no caffeine and I’m awake, for now, but only just. I took a two-hour nap when I got home. I don’t know if it’s a result of my lack of calories (320 in two days) or my blood sugar–more on that in a sec.
Today was my first day at work on this diet. I thought I’d be there and would be able to talk to my friends to see how they did but they were both out of work today. But that’s alright; I managed. Tomorrow I get my first shake. Or I guess technically it’s my second. I’d lost a bet 6 or 7 months ago and ‘ate’ a tablespoon-sized bit of the strawberry shake mix. #CinnamonChallenge Not a great idea, but for it being powder, it didn’t taste terrible, so I’m hopeful the shakes, when made properly, are better. I’ll be bringing chocolate and vanilla to work.
I could not sleep last night at all. I kept falling asleep, watching YouTube on my phone (as per normal), but my body kept waking me up trying to get me to eat. You know why? Not just because I was hungry or my caloric intake was so low, but probably because I was watching food challenge videos. Matt Stonie and Furious Pete are probably my favorites. It’s amazing these dudes are in such good shape for all the crap they eat! Dude, I’m salivating just linking these. I just gotta keep thinking that I get to eat tomorrow. I’ve already decided my ‘first’ meal, too.
I, like probably everyone, got a bunch of gift cards over the holidays and intend to use them quickly. Some of them, admittedly, were used early in anticipation of this diet. One of them we haven’t used yet was an #Outback gift card. I’m going to have a 10 oz filet, a bowl of chicken tortilla soup, and three orders of broccoli (no butter). Salivating again. I don’t know that I’ll normally have 800-calorie meals (this is 780, according to my googling), but after two days of 160 calories, I’m going to go for it.
So my bloodsugar was 278 this morning. I don’t get that. It was 202 last night and I thought for sure that I’d be around 160, max. I wasn’t ready to see a 76-point increase, particularly given that I’d only had water. Taking my bloodsugar just a few minutes ago, it had gone down; 167. I’m satisfied that it had gone down, but worried about what it’s going to be tomorrow. I have an appointment tomorrow to talk about all that, so I guess I’ll get some answers tomorrow, hopefully. Curious if they know anything about Isagenix and what their opinion of it would be.
