Good morning! After a bit of a stomach bug, I am back, and a few pounds lighter. I have finally managed to hit 195.4 (to be exact). I don't know if I'll stay there, but the nice thing is after making an offering to the Porcelain Gods and a day of fasting, I am starting with a clean slate.
This morning I made some scrambled eggs, bacon, tomatoes and avocado. Most of it is still sitting on the plate. I don't want to shove everything down in one bite. Just taking my time, and working through what I want. I was actually hungrier last night than I am this morning. Weird.
Everyone in the house has had this little bug. Since everyone eats different, at least I know it's not food poisoning. I think that it's just a one bathroom thing, is that TMI??? Probably. Sorry.
The night I came down with that nasty little bug, The Colonel, the Pookers and I went for a long walk (I guesstimate about 2 miles). It took us 45 minutes to complete the walk and we were all bushed by the time we got back home. It was lovely though. I have said before, I have always thought walking just to walk is dumb, but it isn't. It feels good, even though my stomach was churning, the walking made me feel better, stronger. When I would feel fatigue set in, I would just give myself a push, and get moving a bit faster, tripping over the Pookers and his bicycle!
I took all of yesterday off. Just laid down and snoozed or watched Revenge on Netflix (I love my smart phone!). All in all, it was a good recovery day, and I only get the one, today being Monday is my busiest day of the week.
My meal plan is simple today. I am going to have a few more bites of breakfast, a light salad with tuna (maybe salmon), and a simple dinner (probably chicken). Small bites, nothing too heavy because I don't want to gain any weight, and I don't want to tax my tummy.
