Oh my goodness, what a difference a day makes! Yesterday I felt like it was too much trouble to breathe and I could hardly do anything because I was so tired, but today! Today I feel like a million bucks, a 1000 times better. I have so much energy and I'm so motivated, even though it's laundry day and I had to shovel lots of snow and we had to fix my mom's toilet (we're her landlords). Even after a long tiring day, I still feel amazing!
Now, I'm a science nerd, so I can't say that the vitamins are the reason that I'm feeling so good. It's only been one day and today may have been a fluke. However, I also really like feeling good so I'm going to keep taking the vitamins and hope that I keep feeling this way.
I've been doing really well eating on plan. I almost went off plan yesterday because of how badly I felt, but I stuck it out, whew! I really have no problems sticking with a low carb diet as long as I'm paying attention to when I'm eating. My problem in the past has been when I lose some weight, I get lax about what I'm eating and start gaining weight and also feeling crappy again. And it's like once I start feeling crappy, I don't really care that I'm gaining weight. I don't want to think that I have to count carbs my whole life, but maybe I do? I don't want to slip again. I used to be 180 and I was really happy there. Why did I let it get to this point (230)? Maybe because I felt helpless, and I let it just happen. I need to remember that I'm not helpless, I have a plan that works, I just need to stick to it even after the weght comes off. No, I can't go back to eating cookies or candy or cake or pasta or cereal or bread, that's just not going to work for me. Those foods are trigger foods that make me eat way more than I want to. I need to stay away from them, like an alcoholic stays away from booze. I need to keep reminding myself of that.
Got into a bit of a rant there. I guess I'm trying to figure my diet life out.
