Feeling very uninterested today. I'm tired. My gut is full from a weekend of crappy food eating. I'm tired. I feel lethargic. I discovered this morning that I have no lunch for today b/c we ate dinner at Brad's parents' place last night. I brought a couple extra boiled eggs, but I'm hoping to get upstairs to the cafeteria to see if there is anything even remotely resembling real food.
Ate horribly all weekend long. It started with a blizzard on Thursday evening. It was Miracle Blizzard Day (for each blizzard sold, $1 was donated to the Children's Miracle Network) and it was Brad's birthday, so we all went out and got a blizzard. Friday, I ran my 11 miler and then Friday night Brad and I went fishing. I decided to eat some potato chips (fried in peanut oil) and Heat Peanuts... at this point, I had remained gluten free. Saturday we had pancakes for breakfast (still gluten free) and went to a parade - enter candy stage right and Mt. Dew stage left. Saturday night I had a breaded tenderloin... and I didn't die, but it made me feel sick about half way through. *that moment when you're eating something delicious and then all of a sudden it tastes so terrible you could vomit* A member of our pit crew baked Brad a cake for his birthday, so we had chocolate cake after the races. Sunday the kids and I got up, took showers and went grocery shopping - had donuts for breakfast. Donuts chased with Mt. Dew... When Brad got off work, we all went out on the boat and played in the river. Afterward I had some oreos. Then we had dinner at Brad's mom's - introducing more cake, but top it with ice cream.
I do believe that ALL the food temptations should be gone for the rest of the month. I am vowing right now... RIGHT THIS VERY MINUTE to finish the month following Whole30 rules.
I hit 171 Saturday morning. At 175 today. 4 lbs gained. Thanks gluten. Why do you have to be so bad for me (us)??
My ankles/foot are stiff today after any amount of rest. Every time I stand up and start walking around, it takes a while for my feet to loosen up and cooperate. This is something interesting that I've experienced for the last couple of years. I don't think it's arthritis b/c I've read that the feet/ankles is not typically the first place it's experienced. I don't know what it is, but I do know that eating a proper Primal/Paleo diet and Cherry Extract capsules help it.
*sigh* is it naptime yet?
