In addition, my stomach's been a little off over the past few days as well. This whole thing may be somehow related to the weird chain of gained weight I was seeing over the weekend and late last week. I was 147.0 this morning, so down a tiny bit from yesterday. Here's the eating:
- scrambled eggs
- tea with cream
- the usual (Monday) supplements
- hazel nuts - 2 handfuls
- a roasted chicken breast - no skin
- some salsa
- a large handful of cashews
- a tiny strawberry Haagen-Dasz (those little cups are oh-so-handy, and are frozen so solid that they take forever to eat. The perfect cheat-y snack)
It all could be stress, maybe. I'm on the brink of a job change (decidedly for the better, but still...) and that might be bothering me at some subconscious level, although I don't feel consciously stressed. It could be a lack of exercise - the whole go-to-the-gym thing hasn't really become a habit (okay, I went once last week and haven't been since). Hard to say.
On the exercise front, I did do a bunch of sit-up-y things last night - crunches with one of those metal headrest jigs. I did 50 regular crunches, 15 side crunches each side, and 25 lower ab exercises. It hurt when I got up, so I think it might have done some good, but I don't feel any after-effects just now.
Vacation next week - starts Friday evening, actually. New Orleans for Mardi Gras. I will do my best to behave, but that town knows what to do with food. That's one of the reasons I'd like to get some of these 6 pounds off before we go; it will be harder after.
