My weight is about 150. How the hell have I gained 5 pounds?!? I hope this is bloating because how can I have gained 5 pounds of fat?!? *sigh*
Brad took my boxes from work to home - the boom box I bought and the Netrition order that came in. He has keys to my house so all he had to borrow was the elevator key. I bought a bunch of low-carb pina colada mix, several packages of sugar-free chocolate chips (good for putting on low-carb ice cream and when I bake sugar-free cheesecake), and some Dixie Diner packages of low-carb pizza crust mix, donut mix, and devil's food cake mix (I want to make that one this coming weekend!).
Blood sugar the last two mornings has been totally normal - under 100. 85 yesterday morning and 94 this morning. How can my blood sugar return to normal so soon after surgery? It stayed elevated much longer after the toe surgery.
Spent an obscene amount of time at the gym - pretty good considering I nearly rolled over to go back to sleep! I was there 2 hours and did 45 minutes of weights, a half hour on the elliptical (the type with moving arms), and another 30 minutes just walking on the treadmill. Whew! Am I tired!
Bought more Dexatrim Max 2-O today. It's one of my favorite diet supplements because it really does help curb appetite (one of the few diet products that does anything close to what it claims). I bought some Creatine at the gym (Apex brand) and while the woman was getting it out of the locked cabinet I saw that the Xenadrine they had been selling for $40 was in the 1/2 price bin. Well, I can't turn down a 1/2 price sale, so I bought a bottle. It's almost expired, so I started taking it right away. They had two kinds; I got the NRG, which is the same kind I bought before.
Creatine is supposed to be good for gaining muscle, which is something I have a hard time doing. That's the same reason I'm taking the L-Glutamine. Both are supposed to help protect and build muscle mass.
Yes, I know diet pills aren't magic, but I could use a little help. I'm already eating right and exercising. I'm not expecting miracles.
Hmmm...Lord Chubalot brought up in a blog post that my gain might be from my birthday binge. He might be onto something. I went back in my FitDay journal. The last time I stepped on the scale was the morning of my birthday (January 11 - the day I binged) and I was 145 then. And here I am two weeks out and I'm around 150 (haven't taken an official weight, but I can estimate based on non-official weights). I have been strictly on plan since my b-day. Even when I go out to eat (like last Friday) I get Atkins-friendly fare such as a bunless burger and veggies instead of the potato dish.
Called Eleanor since she promised to take me out to dinner for my birthday. I asked about this Friday, but she can't, so we tentatively set it for next Friday. I think we are going to Quinn's Lighthouse. I can eat low-carb there just by doing some substitutions.
