Quick check-in


As predicted, I am not nearly as gung ho about healthier eating and exercise, three weeks in, as I was when I started. My eating this past weekend left much to be desired--way to few veggies and even some (gasp!) off-limits carbs, including nacho chips--and I only made it to the gym twice last week. (I've been plagued with migraine headaches again the past few days.)

I plan on going to the gym after work this evening and going to the grocery store after that to pick up some groceries, including fresh veggies. (Part of the problem last week was that I never went to the grocery store and was therefore forced to either eat out or eat convenience foods I had at home.) I am still on reduced-intensity in regard to my exercise, but that doesn't mean I can't exercise at least 3-4 days this week.

I was surprised that the scale gave me the reading it did this morning: Sunday's number was 213.0. We ate out last night for my in-laws' anniversary/Fathers Day and I had a pasta in a cream sauce. Not at all South Beach compliant.

Well, today is a new day. I haven't eaten at all today yet (felt vaguely nauseated so only had a cup of coffee with cream & Splenda) but have my low-carb Lean Cuisine entree and some supplemental frozen veggies for lunch and am planning on a chicken salad for dinner. I'll get back on track.

So sorry you've been struggling with migraines. Nothing sabotages the desire to exercise like a migraine. And I *ALWAYS* crave chocolate when I get them. I guess it's the happy chemicals released that make me feel better. Hope you feel better.

So sorry about the headaches - I know they can pretty much upset the most well-laid plans. But of course, all I can think about now is pasta and cream sauce. :)
