I weighed myself today...and have gained four pounds. I know that this weight is probably from the steroids (I'm swollen beyond belief...I can't even recognize myself in the mirror). BTW I take steroids for asthma, not for muscles!! (it's a different kind of steroid anyway.)
But I am concerned because I am unable to really do any exercise worth speaking of. And I'm afraid that the calories which I am being allotted by SP is going to be too much for my level of activity. I also know that what I REALLY need to do is to stop cheating in the evenings. That is the biggest problem by far.
I really really like an iced coffee with a touch of half and half, some baking cocoa, and stevia...put it in the blender with a few ice cubes and WOW, it is so good! It feels like a cheat and yet it is not. I am thinking that this may be a good substitute for when I am feeling like cheating...however, the evenings are not great times to be drinking coffee. I guess I could buy some decaf and do it that way. I've also had chai tea with the rice milk and stevia and that is really good too.
I will try this ...I'll keep you posted on how it's going!
