Week 2

It’s been one of those weeks. I’ve not eaten things I shouldn’t… I just haven’t eaten as much as I should nor as regular.

I started the week out with an upset tummy. I think it was just a 24-hour bug but I couldn’t bring myself to eat or drink anything except small amounts of Mt. Dew. It’s the only thing that settles my stomach. Mt. Dew today will usually show me 2 pounds heavier tomorrow. I was amazed to find out I’d not gained any weight afterwards.

The other thing that amazed me was how bad I wanted to eat salad. I was sure I’d be burned out by now but I still find myself figuring out a way to incorporate a salad or lettuce into at least one meal a day. It just wasn’t going to happen Sunday or Monday. The bug also dampened my spirits about getting on the treadmill.

I was back on track by Tuesday in time to wake up this morning with a nasty head cold. At least I feel like eating, but the sinus drainage irritates the throat. I’m trying not to breathe on the toddler too much but I think she’s feeling a bit of it herself. She’s still pretty run down after her travels to Nashville and New Hampshire last week. Maybe we’ll just spend this week catching up.

  1. Keep on keepin' on--maintaining is better than gaining! =)

    I'm preparing for a visit from Aunt Flo, so I'm figuring out how to increase water intake & exercise this weekend/next week. My back feels almost up to hiking, so I might even try the easy course at Forest Park. Unless we get the freezing rain & snow they're predicting! If that's the case, I might throw in a couple of hills on my treadmill workout.

    Onward and forward, soldier!
