I've been monitoring my diet to see what things make an impact on my body and have found some weird things.
Coffee lattes give me dragon breath, but it's not the coffee, it's the milk. If I use cream in the coffee, that doesn't happen. And, if I try for skim or 2%, it doesn't agree with my system.
Also, I don't use sugar or sweeteners in my coffees or teas anymore, not really, unless I'm desperate for an indulgence. I think my body doesn't like sugar. I feel better cutting it out, even though I crave it sometimes. That reinforces the idea of sugar addiction...and I'm glad I'm beating it down.
I don't think my body likes carbs, either. I've been eating mostly veggies and protein and a lot of soup. It's easy -- pour from tin to bowl, heat in microwave, et voila. Today, I had pasta (processed, maybe there was MSG in it?). Big mistake. I feel like I'm wading through fog. My brain is just not concentrating on anything and I'm struggling to see clearly.
Been walking every day and that's good, too. Tuesday, back to running outdoors.
Today, this book is the only thing I need to be focusing on. I've got a final draft of this project due tomorrow, and so I've set emotions and fitness plans to the side for the day (I've had a rough few days) and am going to work like my life depends on it because....well, I guess it does.
11/10 (194). 6/11 (188). 7/11 (178). 11/11 (165). 1/12 (174). 3/12 (175). 4/12 (172). 5/12 (178). Now: 7/14 I'm 188.
Mini-Goal 1: (-10 pounds = 178) --
Mini Goal 2: (-20 pounds = 168) --
Goal Weight: (-23 pounds = 165) --
Eventual Goal Weight: 150 -- someday
