Woohoo! Made it through Monday which was sort of a big deal after adding that third Metformin pill. There were some tummy issues that almost caused an emergency at Target and severe nausea. But I made it.
Started the day off with a very tasty breakfast. I found some hashbrown patties in the freezer and cooked them low and slow in a skillet sprayed with oil until they turned brown and crispy. Topped that with a scrambled egg, hot sauce and cheese. Only 15 carbs!
I had to grab a few things at the pet store and Target so off to the store I went. It wasn't long before my stomach said that I should get back home quickly or become very familiar with a public restroom. I opted for the former.
While I was at Target I found the candy version of the Flying Spaghetti Monster! It was labeled as spaghetti and eyeballs but it looked so much like the monster that I had to bring it home. The kids enjoyed eating the eyeballs, of course.
I really, really didn't feel like exercising but my jealousy drove me to do it. Lyn at Escape from Obesity just announced that she lost 100 pounds. I'm very happy for her but I also want to reach that 100 pound goal myself. Badly! So, nausea aside, I exercised.
I did have to consider my near-scare at Target before deciding on which form of exercise to pursue. If I went walking around the neighborhood there was a chance that things could go badly for me and the HOA would have to ban me from the streets. Therefore, I stayed inside and danced away to Just Dance 2. I got a good sweat going for 30 minutes then called it quits. At least I exercised!
Later I started to get dinner ready when I realized I had absolutely no oil in the house and no currants for the dish I was going to prepare. I think I could have gotten away with no currents but I needed the oil. I was going to attempt to make a recipe from the new issue of Cooking Light for Maple Glazed Chicken over Brussel Sprouts Slaw. Confession: I've never had a brussel sprout in my life. They've always smelled too nasty. Even the raw ones.
Since I couldn't make my dish and wasn't feeling too great anyway, Chuck picked up Burger King. I was able to get a Whopper Jr and a side salad and stay within my carb range.
Breakfast: hashbrown patty with egg and cheese
Lunch: leftover Mongolian Beef and a little bit of rice
Dinner: Whopper Jr with cheese, mustard only and a side salad with a little Ranch (no croutons)
Snack: a few cashews
Wow, no fruit yesterday. That's not good. Oops. :)
