Okay. Day 3. The first frustration I had today was not because of what I could/couldn't eat, but because I completely blanked on my exercise and didn't remember to do it till I was in the shower!
I have a routine that I exercise in the morning and come home and have a shower. That's when I exercise because otherwise I would never get it done. Case in point - it's the end of the day and no exercise has been done. Great.
I drank water and ate healthy today, all good until about 3pm. At that point I became thirsty and felt nauseous, and I was tired of just drinking milk and water - in fact, drinking water was making me neausous. I probably shoudln't have, but I ended up walking - slowly, I could feel I had low blood sugar and was feeling weak - to the end of the street and buying a coke zero.
This was the point that I considered chucking it all in. My body often gets low blood sugar and I thought my body may be needing sugar, but after I started drinking I was okay.
I have also found that my tolerance for caffeine has gone way down. I used to be able to drink as much coke as I wanted and not be affected by the caffeine, but now I can feel my heart going faster and me becoming all jittery and awake every time I have caffeine (and caffeine is an ingrediant in those painkillers too).
I'm watching Nicholas Sparks movies today - Dear John and The Notebook - and I'm drooling over the southern scenery. I would love to live around there, it's so pretty. And as a writer I can learn many things from Nicholas Sparks, who I have heard was given a million dollar advance for his FIRST BOOK - which was The Notebook.
