Random thoughts for Monday

Calories eaten yesterday: 1585
Fat: 83g (49%)
Carbs: 43g (11%)
Protein: 112g (29%)

Calories burned in exercise today: 320

Blood sugar was 85 this morning. Since that was normal I didn't believe it and ran some more tests. On the second and third tests the TrueTrack gave me 75 and 90. I pulled out the Aviva and it gave me 105. Yike - those are some wide ranging numbers!

Here's the picture of my current belly bloat. You can click to enlarge it. Isn't this scary? I really hope doing the cleanses will help. I bought some Acidophilus today just to make sure I don't accidentally kill off all the good bacteria in my body.

Went to the gym today. My gums are still hurting me a bit from the surgery, and after how horrible and tired I felt Friday and Saturday I didn't want to overdo it. I did 45 minutes of weights (Woot! I love weight training!) and then walked on the treadmill for 40 minutes between 3.5 and 3.9 mph (2.55 miles). To get in a little more exercise I walked the last 1.5 miles to work. :) Hopefully I can get to the gym again tomorrow. Blood sugar after all this working out was 106.

I'm trying to increase my calories lest I was eating too little to lose weight. I'm also working on trying to cycle calories a bit so I'm not eating the same number of calories every day.

I'm also wondering if maybe I need some carbs with my post-workout protein shake to build muscle. It wouldn't have to be many carbs, of course. I found some Muscle Milk with 22g of protein and 9g carbs. That might work without pushing my total too high, and would only be necessary on days I do weight training. At any rate, it's something I'm thinking about.

Here's some other recent photos I've taken. Click any of them to see the full size.

=-) "We Shall Overcome", is a song I think of. What about you? There is no, "weighting around" for those who are "moto-vating" around!

Hope you get to the bottom of the bloat. That looks downright uncomfortable.
