An experiment in eating

 Yesterday I ate some bread. I had a bit of a pretzel, not much, and half a hamburger on a bun. I did it after not having any for almost 2 months. It was a test. And I failed. Last night I felt so bloated and full...yuck. I had been noticing for the past week or so that my stomach did not feel like it was sitting on my lap and that I could actually pull it in a little. Not last night. It felt horrible. Then we order dinner from Rubio's, one of my favorite places, and it was crap. It was bland and tasteless, the rice was like be be shots, it was horrible. Woke up this morning and needed to poop badly. Did and feel much better now. So the moral of this story, bread is not my friend. 

That was good to learn but I don't need to relearn it. I've had sugar a time or two in the past 2 months and it has not affected me like that. It definitely made me feel like crap, but not to that extent. So experiment conducted and results are in. Sugar and wheat is out, out, out. 

Interestingly enough, after lunch yesterday I was very low energy. Very low. I did watch 2 episodes of The Dropout and snooze in my sleepy chair. Then I got up and ended up laying on the couch and watching the judges. I did force myself, kind of, to go do some Supernatural for a while. But I do believe that eating that bread sapped my energy. Also, I felt fuller after that meal that I had any meal in a couple of weeks. Okay, seriously, lesson learned. 

In other news, PT is going so well that I'm thinking of quitting. No, that's not exactly true. But it is going really well and I'm thinking of starting leg exercises at the gym again. But I'm thinking of switching up my PT exercises at night for my hip opening. I know that what I'm doing at home is helping. Never mind. I just decided to keep up with the PT for at least a few more weeks. I've completed 2 weeks and only have 4 more weeks. Just do it. Follow the program and see what happens. I'm just like Hubby in that respect. Well, if this is working, let me switch it up. Stupid. I'll stick with the program and do it at least 5 times a week, which includes the 2 times I go there. So 3 nights a week at home I will do them. I will see this through to the end. 

Okay, the tree has grown and I'm out of things to say.

Day 4 - Rest Day

 Although I really felt like working out yesterday, I am taking rest days. I know they are important. Maybe not a big deal now, since I'...
