Remember my post last week about my rebellion? Thought I'd update you on how things are progressing with me.
Since that day I've taken every single dose of my vitamins. I am still having issues with gagging on some of them -- which is something I've struggled with for years (even before surgery), I seem to gag on tiny pills but have no problem at all on big horsepills. But I've suffered through it this week and just taken my vitamins like a good girl.
Since last week I've done much better with my water intake too. I got a new water bottle from a friend and it's helped a lot (I'll post about it later, it's the coolest thing!).
My eating has been sporadic. It's hot here in Michigan and when it's hot I don't want to cook or put too much effort into preparing meals. So I've gone for easy stuff like meat, cheese and fruit for dinners. Or popsicles instead of dinner cuz it's so dang hot! Or neglecting to eat all together because I'm too busy or involved in other projects (like painting). Still reaching for crap too often, but at least I'm focusing more on not-eating-crap and trying to focus eating-good-stuff instead.
EDITED TO ADD MEALS: Eating today went well. Here's the run down:
Commute -- protein iced coffee (decaf)
Arrive at work -- regular coffee
Breakfast -- carbmaster yogurt with fresh blackberries
Lunch -- salad with grilled chicken and Quaker Cafe Square for dessert (OMG!)
Snack - grapes and cheese
Dinner (on the way to and during photog club meeting) -- handful of trail mix then protein ice coffee
LNS -- sugar free angel food cake with strawberries
Exercise is still not happening regularly. Although painting the house this weekend definitely got me sweating my butt off and we know that housework is just as effective as formal workouts. So for now "being active" is my goal.
So there's where I am for now. My head is still not 100% in the game and I'm rebelling against the reform still. But I'm determined to behave myself and do the healthy and right thing.
