It is day 54 of my “No Excuses” weight loss journey. Today I am exhausted. I don’t know if it has to do with the weather, life in general, or too much going on at once. I am thankful for the rain today as it is washing the thick pollen out of the air while rinsing off my filty vehicle.
So my weight has not gone up or come down. I’m hoping in the next few days to see some improvement. I’ve got to lose 2 pounds to get back to my 20 pound goal. Once I shed those pesky pounds I will then be able to concentrate on moving forward. I cut out my carbs again and adjusted my calorie intake. That should help. I will keep you posted 🙂
While I was grocery shopping Monday night, the store manager stopped me and was asking about my weight loss. He is a runner and athlete. I told him I was having pretty bad leg cramps. He told me it could be linked to dehydration and recommended I drink coconut water. I cannot stand coconut but I like the smell of it. So, I bought 2 bottles but have yet to drink them. I’ve been eating bananas to try and curb the leg cramps. I’ll let you know about the cocount water. He told me if you work out hard and sweat (which I haven’t) this will instantly replenish the fluids you lost (I don’t drink nearly enough liquid during the day). I’ll check the nutrition content and post soon. I might try it tonight depending on how I feel when I get home. I may just declare defeat and go to bed and sleep. 🙂
I had to stop and buy more safety pins today. I got the big ones and the smaller ones ha! The lady who checked me out recognized me and said she could tell I needed a safety pin to hold up my pants and shirt. I giggled and told her I would rather have the Cadbury Egg-after eating a few of those and I wouldn’t need to buy safety pins. ha! (I love Cadbury Eggs. I posted the calorie content a few posts back. 1 egg has 150 calories, 6 fats, 15 mg sodium, 24 carbs, and 2 protein).
I have several boxes of frozen fish in my freezer. I may throw a salmon or talapia on the grill pan and fix some veggies to go with it. High in protein, low in calories.
Hope you all have a great Thursday!
