These blog posts will sometimes have minimal information. I don’t know what else to say for today other than I was exhausted today. Not having any caffeine at all is catching up with me. I could have some tea or something, or black coffee, but I’m trying to get rid of all that. It’s just going to lead to more cravings.
Bloodsugar was 212 this morning, so I guess it went down slightly. Marathon, not a race, right? I gained a little over a pound, which I was expecting, given that I wasn’t on pure liquid. Lost that extra little bit because of the cleanse, later. Details unnecessary.
Same shakes for breakfast (vanilla) and lunch (chocolate). Nothing’s gonna change, there, until I run out. I had to leave work early because I was exhausted. I think I’m getting closer to being able to withstand the dip in caloric intake, but for now I’m still pretty exhausted.
Dinner was a couple pieces of chicken and the broccoli I had leftover from Outback. I also had a couple ‘snacks’ of about a tablespoon of peanut butter. It’s got to be Jif peanut butter, too. All those other brands don’t taste right, in my opinion. It’s only got 3 g of sugar for two tablespoons, and I only had 1. That totaled under 100 calories, as well, so it was a pretty good snack. I nearly put it on a piece of bread/toast, but I’m going to try to stay away from those kinds of carbs a big longer, if I can. I’m really craving some Qdoba, though. I never get the burrito, but the bowl. If I can craft a bowl under 800 calories, I’ll okay that as a meal for myself. Need to get on there and figure it out, though. The only thing that sucks is I’m sure I’ll have to stay away from the queso diablo and the sour cream. I could probably get some shredded cheese, but really I think I’d rather double up on the fajita vegetables and chicken, instead.
As far as actual fast food places, I’m going to stay away from them for the month. It’s tough, too, because I love Taco Bell and Wendy’s and Chick-Fil-A. Although, thinking about it, I could get the grilled strips from Chick-Fil-A. Hmm. What does everyone else do when they want a meal, don’t want to cook, and don’t want to spend a ton at a sit-down restaurant?
I’m four days into this 30-day commitment, and if I put it at percentages (13.3%) it seems like it’s going faster. I’m not saying I’m going to go nuts and revert back to my poor eating habits when I’m done, but I think I’ve learned my lesson enough to know to ease up. Portion control is real. Too much sugar is real. It’s hard go gauge if I feel better because of the diet or not because I’m exhausted, which is the same I felt when my sugar was high. Waiting another couple hours to test myself; I ate around 6, and they say its best to wait 4 hours after you’ve eaten before you test yourself.
I’m tired. Gonna see if I can talk the girls in to going to sleep early.
