Okay - I've concluded that the probiotics are definitely doing a number on my digestive system. Again last night I had the full feeling and the swooshy grumbly noises within 30 minutes of taking it. This morning I had to run to the bathroom at about 6 am cuz I was sure I was going to throw up. A couple burps and the feeling subsided, but didn't completely go away for about an hour. It has to be the probiotics cuz I only get that feeling after the evening dose of pills and the probiotics is only in the evening pack. Process of elimination points to the probiotics. I must have some nasty fighting going on in there! I'm going to stick it out until my supply of vitamin packs is gone. Hopefully the good bugs will fight off the bad bugs and I will start to feel wonderful and have normal BMs daily. Sometimes the power of positive thinking can make things happen!
Weight - 184.6 - still bouncing between 183 and 186. I haven't cheated or made any bad choices for 6 days now. I've been working out (4 times), or working hard in the yard (2 times). Not one lazy day yet. I'm building muscle and tone - so I'm not going to get upset that the scales aren't moving. Now if they aren't moving in a month I will definitely be upset!! My total calories are right at 1100 everyday. Most of my calories are at dinner - I'm wondering if I should spread them out more evenly??? I know a lot of people can eat all their calories in a small window - but I've read a lot about how calories are used and stored - what can't be utilized within a certain time frame gets stored as fat. I think I'm going to try to even it out a little better and see if that helps the scale move a bit.
So - right now I'm having a protein shake with magnesium (which seems to be alleviating the cramping in my hands and feet!) Before I go to work I will eat something a little more than I normally do........... instead of 2 eggs I'll eat 4 eggs. Then a small bite of something after work - maybe a serving size of pork rinds. Then at dinner I will tone it down a bit. I'll plug the numbers into my spreadsheet and see how it comes out. Dinner tonight is Tenderloin and fried veggies.
