Happy Valentine’s Day!
I had to take Hallmark Man to the “big city” of Savannah for a colonoscopy this morning. It only took us an hour and a half to get there. Traffic along the interstate was zipping along at a whopping 5 miles an hour. We took the nearest exit and went in via the back roads. Otherwise, we would have been sitting in traffic a lot longer. 3 hours later as we were leaving Savannah, the traffic was STILL backed up.
I am noting that today, I have no pain in my hips. I did not eat red meat yesterday at all. I didn’t eat any processed meat. I did, however, eat every two hours because I was starving. Maybe it was a mental thing, but I still didn’t make it up to 1399 calories (my max for the day, according to JillianMichaels.com, if I want to lose weight).
Oh, I didn’t mention it? I signed up on her website yesterday. I need a kick start. I’ve got a lot more weight to lose. Finding my food sensitivities is making this a little more tricky. I have to be leary of carbs that spike insulin, avoid red meat, processed meat and dairy (except butter). So, I ate a lot of beans and eggs yesterday. To look at it on print, (via nutridiary.com), it looked scary and I felt like I lost control, so that’s why I joined up with Jillian’s site.
So, I am excited about the no pain thing. I am going to the chiropractor tomorrow morning, not because I “need” it, but because I am dying to get on the scales. I haven’t been on the scales in a month. I could do that for free, but I might as well get adjusted while I am there and share with him what I discovered about red meat. 🙂
The sad part of this whole ordeal is that Hallmark Man bought me a ring for Christmas. It’s too big now. It flops around on my finger and is at least half a size too big. I didn’t realize I was losing weight in my fingers, too. I’m constantly adjusting it. I know…it’s a good thing.
You know what else could be daunting, but I’m not going to let it? According to Jillian Michael’s website, I will reach my goal weight by December 24, 2012. Of course, that is based on the 220 lbs that I weighed last time I went to the chiropractor. We will see what tomorrow brings. I am pumped!!
