Yesterday was a very bad day. I feel awful all the time; my stomach constantly hurts and the very thought of food makes me retch. My workouts have slowed considerably (15% slower than I've ever been in the pool for yesterday's swim) and are torturous to get through. Instead of feeling strong, it's like my body has given up. My muscles won't respond enough to even get me to the point of feeling out of breath.
I didn't end up eating dinner last night because I just couldn't look at food. So I had a glass of wine instead (on what planet is this a good plan?!) and went to bed at 9:30pm. I woke up at 7am and could have easily slept more. Tom passed out even earlier than I did.
According to the plan, after today everything is supposed to suddenly be sunshine and rainbows, so we'll see. The only reason I'm still doing it is because my weight has dropped, and even though I shouldn't care about that number, I'm curious to see how low it can go in two weeks.
FOOD FOR TODAY:
Breakfast - Egg white omelette with cinnamon
Snack – CURSE YOU CELERY AND CREAM CHEESE
Lunch – Tuna salad with cucumber slices
Snack – Turkey/chicken "pepperoni" sticks and cheddar cheese
Dinner – Ham and roasted acorn squash "mashed potatoes"
39km bike ride (recumbent) (hold me).
