Notes on a Wednesay
Wednesday, October 30, 2019
Although my calories have not exceed the lowest minimum number (1200) and i have been trying (some days more successfully than others) to keep the nutrients proportions in balance...Yesterday when I weighed myself it said i had gained 2 pounds. I have no idea why. This is the same trouble i always have in my efforts to lose weight. The only time this DIDN'T happen was when I was doing heavy exercise....and then the numbers steadily dropped. Maybe it's because walking up and down hills and doing aerobics causes you to lose a lot of water ...so maybe I'm retaining water. I wonder what would happen if you were to drain the fluid out of all the areas where I am swollen with inflammation? I might lose 5 lbs!
This morning I played around with my breakfast options until i got what I wanted.. One slice of Dave's Killer 21 Grain thin-sliced bread (His thin-slice is about the regular slice of other breads but is only 60 calories. It's a hearty chewy bread and it lasts at least 2 weeks without drying out or molding. One top of that I had one large egg's white and 3 pieces of thin-sliced honey smoked turkey breast. I folded the bread over and made it into one thickish half sandwich. It was delicious, satisfying, and very low in calories.
I was behind the game this AM because I''d been up since midnight and ate several things over night..nothing too terrible (except a Skinny Cow ice cream sandwich). I'm at 300 calories after breakfast..night and breakfast counted. I really want to be careful with my calories today because I will be eating out for lunch. I'm not sure where yet. I wish i knew so i could make educated selections by looking up the nutritional info online.
I'm going today to the medical ctr nearby (1 hour away) for a procedure that I'm praying will end the CONSTANT UTI's I've had for a year now. I was in the hospital for 4 days getting IV meds and that didn't even help for longer than 2 days. I'm not looking forward to this so please - if you think of it- I will be there beginning at 10:00.
May God bless your day and grant you new intimacy with him.
