was pretty freaking great! 🙂 woke up to 3 pounds down on the scale (still gone this morning, I was a little shocked)… then got a little garden work done, took Grandma out to do her shopping, and got in my best run EVER!!! I’m still slower than most, but I’m improving!!! Sadly, as soon as I finished my run, my tummy started to hurt. I don’t know why, but I had the WORST stomach cramps last night. I think I may have dehydrated a bit. That, and the fact that I let Grandma take me out to lunch at my favorite Mexican restaurant. Calorie-wise, I did just fine, but I think all the fat and sodium and sugar (first real cococola in months) just didn’t really agree with me. Ended the day with an 800 calorie deficit–NOT a good thing for me.
Woke up this morning with a still-sore tummy (seriously, this felt like a hangover, and I didn’t even drink–it’s what made me wonder if it was a hydration thing) and set to work re-hydrating. Lots of water and fruit and a little gatorade later, the house is now clean and the laundry’s caught up. All ready for work tomorrow. Cooked a fabulous meal mostly on the grill tonight–chicken, corn on the cob, pineapple, and green beans. It was the first time I’ve made green beans since the switch–NO BACON!!! Instead, I added some onion, bell peppers, and a little tomato and put them in ff chicken broth in the crock. Definitely still delicious! 🙂
Not a lot to report, I did back out of today’s run (w8d3) due to my belly, but I PROMISE it’s on Saturday’s plan. Along with tilling the garden like I was supposed to today. I just didn’t have it in me. Off to bed now, it’s gonna be an early morning 😉
