Ahhh, regularity

There was a slight incident involving several fibre 1 bars today... at least if nothing else, I will be regular!

I didn't get on the treadmill this morning... I wasn't feeling the greatest. HOWEVER I did manage to get on it for 65min tonight!!! go me!!! I sweated (yes, it's a word) like a pig in a blanket! It felt great! (the shower a few minutes ago felt even better).

I think Tara was totally right (if you read her comment on yesterday's post). I didn't eat enough. That happens sometimes when I pack my lunch AND dinner... I just don't have room to pack enough or don't plan well enough. I ended up waking up hungry at 1am and ate 2 spoons of buttercream icing (likely the cause of me not feeling well this morning). That happened on the weekend too... waking up in the middle of the night. This is a new pattern developing that I will squash immediately - you are all my witness.

here's what today's interesting intake looked like:
Breakfast - egg (2), fibre 1 bar (2)
AM snack - fibre 1 bar (2)
Lunch - cucumbers (0), salad with cheese and tuna (2), fruit salad (2), fibre 1 bar (2)
Afternoon snack - fibre 1 bar - yes, I grabbed a bunch of them this morning on my way out the door with the intention of leaving them in my desk. i ate them all (2)
Snack at home - fibre 1 bar (2) - this was due to a chocolate craving. it was either a fibre 1 bar or dive into a bag of chipits
Dinner - toast (1), cream cheese (1), cheese slice (1), fibre 1 bar (2)
*then I found out my grandma has dementia... enter 2 more fibre 1 bars (4)*

Anyway, I'm trying to look at the bright side of things... so grandma has dementia... it isn't like we found out she has brain cancer or anything... it doesn't change who she is... it just explains her disorientation at times... and also, I don't think it can be anything too severe... she's still doing well for an 80yr old in my opinion (but i'm refusing to look at the glass as anything but half full right now!).

Good luck tomorrow!

Sorry to hear about your grandma, Jen :( But you're right, at least it explains why she's been disoriented and it's not something like cancer. I've run into a few people around this hospital that are "pleasantly confused" as the doctor puts it. Just a little mild dementia and they're not affected by it day to day.
And good work on getting your fibre in today! What a yummy way to do it. And it's much better than the evil chipits :)
Good luck tonight.
Keep smilin' :)
Love ME!
