I woke up yesterday pissy. Ok, maybe pissy is to nice of a word. I was bitchy. Sorry, but sometimes you have to admit that a duck quacks.
My mother and I took the wrecking crew, in shifts, school clothes shopping. I didn’t really feel horrible, but I didn’t feel good either. Then last night Chris and I had a “date night” while mom watched the girls for us. I didn’t really feel up for it, but when you have 4 kids, you tend to take advantage of alone time with your spouse when you can manage it.
Chris decided to take me to Outback because I could get my normal steak, steamed veggies and a salad. When the fried mushrooms made it to the table, I caved. The mushrooms them selves weren’t the end of the world. The breading I could have done without, but honestly I didn’t really eat enough of the breading to make a huge effect on my blood sugar. But, the creamy, yummy baked potato did. I have a huge weakness for all things potato. Baked, fried, pancakes, au gratin, ect. I just felt so bad, I wanted comfort food.
After dinner, Chris and I went to the races. We had a good time walking around, talking to everyone and watching the races. We finally made it home about 2 am. At that time I was hungry again, after all it had been about 8 hours since we ate dinner. Chris decided to run to Whataburger to pick us up something to eat.
So yes, I fully expected for my blood sugar to be high and to feel like crap today. However, when I got up this morning my blood sugar was only 154 mg/dl. All the walking we did yesterday apparently helped a little anyways.
What about today? Today wasn’t much better. I woke up with a horrible headache and my monthly visitor was here. Needless to say, I haven’t exactly stayed on track today. I haven’t even checked my blood sugar again. I know it is high, I can feel it.
On the plus side, my toes are doing much better!
Tomorrow is weigh in day. I don’t expect much because of my visitor. She always, always brings unwelcomed water weight. Also tomorrow I am back to day 1 of my #7daychip challenge. Not to mention she is a whole freaking week early. Apparently I am no longer on an exact 28 day cycle, I am not on a 21 day cycle. Sigh.
I really have to figure out how to get past the weekends AND this special time of the month without completely wrecking all the work I put in during the week. I know ultimately it will come down to will power.
Tomorrows menu will look like this:
Breakfast: 1 scrambled egg with cheese wrapped in a low carb tortilla
Lunch: Chicken club from Chick-fil-A minus the buns (Mondays are bills day, and I never home during lunch)
Dinner: Boneless skinless chicken breast stuffed with cream cheese, onion, jalapeno and cheddar cheese then wrapped with bacon and baked. I will serve broccoli and/or cauliflower steamed with a little butter.
Snack: I don’t know yet. Maybe some beef jerky or glass of almond breeze.
Oh, I got a new Biggest Loser DVD that I plan on starting tomorrow. It’s an indoor walking workout.
Can’t wait until I get to re-join the Y. I really enjoyed it when I use to go!
