I didn't feel sluggish or bloated like I did yesterday afternoon. And I think the difference is that dinner included some protein and the starches were less refined.
Vickie, the diabetic/carb sensitive carb up meals include protein with each starch. You eat smaller amounts of starch with protein, and over 3 meals. On the non-diabetic carb up day, it's over 2 meals and protein isn't required with the starches. I think I like having some protein with a smaller amount of starch.
It's weird to say, I missed my protein meals yesterday. I guess you can get used to things pretty quickly.
I also got in a run while Sophie had swim class. It was just 3 miles, and I did not feel up to it. I had problems with asthma all day yesterday, even at the office, and at the gym I just never felt like I was getting enough air. I think I've also lost some cardio endurance by taking it lightly the past couple of weeks while on the diet. Ah, well. It will come back.
Today is DH's night with the kids (at least, it's supposed to be, we'll see how the day goes), and I'm planning to go to the 6 p.m. weights class. And it's a Baseline Day on The Diet, which means two healthy starches--one at breakfast and one at lunch.
And look at that scale reading! I really thought it would be up since I had carbs yesterday, and so was very surprised at a loss.
Y'all realize that when I see that weight, I don't believe it. I get on and off the scale THREE TIMES to make sure it's right. I go make my coffee, pee again, and get back on the scale again to make sure it's not lying to me. Today when I got on for Round Two, it said 157.0! But then I got back off and on again, and it was back to 157.2. Is it any wonder I don't trust the numbers? I know, I know. I'm a scale addict. Yada yada yada.
My size 8 J. Jill jeans (they aren't blue-jeans, but are khaki colored and kind of dressy, if that makes sense) that I bought a month or so ago and were a smidge too tight, fit really nicely today. And I measured my waist yesterday and it's at 30.5 inches. I would love to have a sub 30" waist. I never dreamed I'd be this close.
Obsessed over numbers? Me? Naahhh......
