I've had a bad couple of days. A bad weigh in, stomach issues, kids being nutso... So, yeah, BAD. I just feel so off. I've been a bit productive, but not hugely. Although, I DID finish scraping and sanding the grout in the shower last night and even got he first layer of sealer on it. Its by no means perfect, but it sure is a HUGE improvement! The odd spots blend better, it overall looks smoother, and of course, now it is freshly sealed. I am going to put on another layer of sealant here in a bit, and then I am going to put in fresh caulk later. We have also decided to put in a real 'skirt' around the tub instead of the plastic one that came with it. It just isn't sturdy enough for a regularly used tub like ours. If it was a secondary bathroom or something, it would be different. But it's used daily. So, we need the sturdier built-in skirt. I liked the plastic one since it allowed easier access and whatnot, but we have already gotten a crack on the side of the tub from stress and its not even that old. So, we are going to do a repair and then build in the skirt. I want it fixed correctly and not just covered up.
Anyways, the last few days, I've not really been 'on plan'. Like I mentioned before, I wasn't really on or off plan Saturday, even though that was originally to be my 'off' day. I weighed in Sat. at 194. I got up to 193.5 on Sunday which had be up a pound from the previous week, thus putting me behind. So, I decided I would take Sunday off. I got up to 195 on Monday, but I knew that would happen since I was pretty good all day Sunday until I had dinner. We had Chinese! YUM YUM but I know, full of sodium. Still hadn't had it in a while, so I was glad to get some! So, I have that and then yesterday I knew I was a bit over, but I was SO busy that I didn't care. But I cared this AM when I got up to 196. :( I was so annoyed. I mean, I hadn't eaten perfectly, but it hadn't been horrid. Small breakfast and then salad at lunch with some carrot/raisin loaf. Then the rest of the salad and soup for my snack since I didn't eat much at lunch along with half a muffin. Water, tea, and coffee, of course. Then a decent dinner. But still nothing horrid... And then I realized yesterday that I haven't pooped in days. I FINALLY (right after starting this blog) went. I feel a bit better, but it wasn't an easy go of things. I'm not sure WHAT is going on with me but my urine is really thick and stinky and I'm having a hard time pooping. Even with drinking lots of water and eating lots of fruit, veggies and fiber. I've never had this issue before, so I'm not sure what is going on. Up until the last couple of weeks, I've always been pretty regular and would go every AM after breakfast. But now, I'm going days without going. I'm sorry if all of this is TMI for some people, but I'm at a loss. Hope it is just something random and passes soon. I am going to be careful to watch my water intake today and try to get in more than my regular 64. I want to try to take in 96. Anymore than that and I might float away! LOL No, seriously, I don't want to do more than that because there is a history of kidney issues in my family so I don't want to overwork them.
Anyways, weighing right now is making me depressed so I am thinking about not weighing again until Sunday. I want to do well the rest of the day even if I feel off. Which should go fine since breakfast was right at 400 and then I had a snack of dry cereal trying to get my bowels moving and I think that was around 200 to 275 (I didn't measure). Lunch will be around 300 and then something for dinner. The hubbs goes back on nights tomorrow, so without him here, it will be a bit easier. He tries to be supportive, but sometimes we're bad influences on each other! Like, when he was DYING for cookie dough! LOL I know, I coulda said no, but I didn't! Seems I always have issues when he's off for 7 days. He does, too. I won't deny I love him being off, but it does seem to make our diets stumble a bit. Its like Oooh! We're on a mini-vacay! LET'S EAT! LOL We don't really say that, but we do seem to get more lax. So, I need to get back on it. I think we also felt a bit sorry for ourselves since we didn't get to do our date night.
Ok, well, I am going to stop whining and pouting now and get off of here. I am not happy about the 196, but all I can do is push forward and try to figure out what is going on. There has got to be some solution. Wish me luck!
