So yesterday, I conducted an experiment. For my lean meal, I had a grilled cheese sandwich and kale chips – what I was feeding my kiddos. Before you get all indignant, it was made with Julian’s Bakery low carb bread – about 100 calories per slice and ONE CARB per slice. So I was well under both my carb allotment and my calorie allotment, but (and this was the experiment) I had grains. Sprouted, non-gluten grains, but grains.
My tummy is fine (even though that was a LOT of fiber). But my weight was UP THIS MORNING BY 3.5 lbs. Today I am at 287.8 (CRAZEH!?) and my face is puffy. And before you ask, I noticed the puffy before the weigh in.
As my friend pointed out, I am also in the middle of period hell. Without getting too graphic, I have been almost on-and-off started for about two weeks. This weekend, I thought I had REALLy started. But today I found out that I still had not REALLY started. So. I dont’ know if the 3.5 is water from the grain, water from the flukey cycle stuff, or what. I did not cheat – so I am not worried. I am not even angry, I’m just like “huh.”
So I’m skipping Moanday today and will do it later in the week when the weirdness has vanished, or next Monday if it has NOT vanished (God forbid) by then. 🙂 I know if I have to type out the reduction in amounts it will lead to me being really stirred up (artificially) over seomthing that I am not REALLY upset about, so I am going to practice what I preach about looking at the positive.
