Really? I’m already four weeks into this challenge?! How did that happen? I really need to get my show on the road–I’ve completely stalled since I’ve gone off the HCG drops. Although I’m happy to have pretty much stayed where I left off with them, I am not at my goal weight and I need to start moving again.
So despite eating like a T-Rex the past week, I was pleasantly surprised to have only gained .8 pounds. That is damage I can repair within a week. My weight is now 150.2. Naked and after using the bathroom. That’s how you weigh in the morning, right? :)
So here’s how I’m doing on my goals:
Losing weight: didn’t happen.
Exercise: still doing good, but not as good as before. It was hard to go out and run when I was weighed down by ten tons of salty & sweet. I got in two cardio and two strength-training sessions.
Vitamins, fruit & veggies: I did well with the vitamins, missed only two days, but I didn’t meet my fruit and veggies quota (four servings per day) for three of the days. This is not OK with me.
Blood sugar: this one is doing worse and worse as the challenge goes on. In my last post I didn’t mention this, but part of the reason I was eating like a T-Rex was because of multiple episodes of very low blood sugar. Obviously I didn’t have to eat junk to fix them, but I did have to eat a LOT more carbohydrates than I usually would to fix a low blood sugar. I also had my highest blood sugar of all time this last week and I’m starting to get scared b/c I’ve never had so much trouble keeping my blood sugar stable so I’m calling my doctor tomorrow. My average blood sugar for last week was 169 (lowest ones in the twenties and highest was almost 500!–see I told you, SCARY!)
This week my goals are all those above, but also to keep a food journal daily and write EVERYTHING I eat in it. I’m going to make it a great week!
