Thrown a bone- Weigh In
Why I'm hopeful the numbers are going to change. This is our first lower cal high cal day. Confused? Instead of going out to eat and guessing at the numbers or using other restaurants that do provide nutritional info to gauge what we've eaten after we've eaten it, I'm making a favorite dish that might be a little more than we like to eat during the week but less than we eat on the weekend. So I'm making a whole wheat spinach lasagna for lunch and will go into dinner too. I've unthawed a half of a small baguette of Boudin sourdough bread that we ordered and roasted garlic (with no olive oil oil) so it's not adding butter to the bread but still adding flavor. If my calculations are correct, I should save 1600 calories over what we had last weekend which was more than I thought it was once I started adding stuff up.
In addition to that, I took like last Ortho Tricyclen Lo this morning and did a happy dance, flipped it off and wanted to take a sledgehammer to the pack. *TMI alert* Of course I've basically had a cycle already this week so I have another week of it coming up which SUCKS because that means another week of exercise on a raft. Boo! I calculated last night to see if I started my old pills tomorrow if I would be throwing myself into future misery and I would. If I started taking them Sunday I would then have visits from Aunt Flo on my birthday, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Uh...no thanks. So I have to practice patience this week, hope the lower cal day kicks in and then the week after on the new pill tells my body to release everything it's been holding on to. It is amazing how a 2mm pill can wreak havoc!
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
