Harder Than I Thought
Superman and I have been on a "diet". I use the term loosely for me. He has done great and has lost (guessing, cause he didn't weight before starting) at least 15 lbs. I on the other hand have lost 7. He has done great in cutting out sugar and carbs. I don't really eat that many carbs, so I don't have to sacrifice there. Didn't think that I ate too much sugar, but find that I want to eat things that I am not eating now. So....I cheat (way more than him). I was not feeling well Monday-Wednesday. I felt sick to my stomach. I don't know if it is because I was not eating the way I normally eat, or if I caught something, or ate something bad. I do know that nothing appealed to me at all. We have been doing this for three weeks. Superman has lowered his blood sugar drastically and he is going to go to the doctor to see if he can cut out some medications. He needs to get his cholesterol and triglycerides checked. We added a new element to the formula. We now have a stationary bicycle and have began to work out each day. I usually do mine in the morning. Riding the bike is hard enough, but when I added in the toning and stretching exercises, I realized just how out of shape I am. I really need to put more effort into it and then I'm sure to find more energy and stamina. Hopefully, I will be a thinner me by the time vacation starts in September.
