smek316's Journal, 26 April 2013

I have been cat sitting at a friend's house so I haven't had access to a scale, therefore no weigh ins this week as curious as I have been. I don't think I did as well this week and I doubt I lost any weight at all. Calorie wise I did pretty good, but I didn't stick as closely to my plan. I planned to start adding fruit back in to my diet, which I did, but I also had a cheat day over last weekend, and today is already a cheat day. I'm finding it harder and harder to remain true to the wheat free/sugar (almost) free plan. After the wedding tomorrow I will get back on track and stay more true to the diet. It's frustrating because after last weekend I had a hard time going low carb again (the cravings and fatigue came back.) So I know that when I start up the diet again it won't be easy... sigh. I am also not super motivated to spend so much money on my groceries as I have been. I went shopping twice and the groceries lasted for three weeks, however it was so expensive because everything was organic and free range. I guess I'm just venting because it isn't all that easy. I knew it wouldn't be.
I was wondering if taking gluten out of my diet would relieve my IBS symptoms, and interestingly enough it didn't really do that like I was expecting. Instead I was kinda backed up, and when I did go it wasn't healthy, if you know what I mean. So, I guess either I don't have a gluten intolerance or I was eating so much protein that my body couldn't process it quick enough to expel. Graphic, I know and I'm sorry.
P90x has been making my body feel pretty good. I can tell that my endurance, strength and flexibility are improving. I realized that it is harder for me to do the workouts because I am carrying around about 45 pounds of extra weight on my body. Sometimes I go at my own pace, sometimes I have the strength to really push myself. The main issue I'm having is the time involved. Yikes. 60-90 minutes per day for 6 days per week is a huge commitment. More involved than I originally thought. Between planning healthy meals and p90x, I feel like I have no other time for any other hobbies. I keep telling myself there will always be time for rest later. There will always be beer and cakes around, I just don't need to eat them right now. Then the weekend comes and I'm stressed and tired from a long 6 day work week and I'm tired of saying no to myself. Yesterday was the first time that I skipped a workout. I made up for some of it today, but I am still disappointed in myself for missing it. I had things going on after work and really didn't have the time! I am not a morning person so I cannot envision myself getting up at 4:30 to do the workouts, so it will just have to remain this way for 10 more weeks. You can live with almost anything for 10 weeks.
Anyway, I am determined to see this through, especially the p90x. The diet will continue to require some little tweaks here and there. I will add more variety, but attempt to keep my foods low GI so I don't have the hunger pangs. I'm sure if I continue to track my food and work out I will lose weight. I still want to continue to do it in a healthy way. I am starting to like vegetables much more now. HUGE plus, since I was never big on them before. I rarely crave fatty fried foods anymore. I still crave chocolate but I have my safe, 5 grams or less of sugar versions. I can do this!!
