Today has been THAT day — I felt like I hit bottom. Vince and I were just talking and he said “Do you feel bad?” and I said no . I think I need a Dr. Pepper. He said “Have one – if that gets you perked up and energized . . do it!” but after not having them for over a week, I’m afraid one this late would keep me awake. Last time I stopped drinking them and had one about this time, it was way late before I fell asleep.
This morning I calculated all the protein I’d be getting and I had all I needed so it isn’t that. Truly I think my body has just had enough of functioning without a load of caffeine and sugar.
I did lose another pound yesterday so I’ve lost a total of 8. According to the diet folks, 5 more and I will have reached my goal . . NOT!
For breakfast I had one egg and half a bagel – another top half. Vince is either going to have to come to my rescue and eat the bottom halves or I’m going to have to start on them Thursday. That will be sad if I have to eat the bottom half of a bagel!
For lunch, I had tuna salad with okara, lemon juice, a bit of mayo and some seasonings and it was served on lettuce with carrot sticks, tomatoes and the homemade honey mustard vinaigrette.
Dinner was whatever we could find – a bit of hummus and crackers for me, along with a few cucumber sticks and more carrots.
Vince and I went to the park and walked and according to my Jawbone, I got in 5,542 steps so far. I’ll make it to the suggested 7,500 by the time I go out and do all my evening chores.
Tomorrow’s a new day! I’ll perk up and be happy somehow.
