I premade breakfast for tomorrow - an egg bake with a bunch of veggies and chorizo sausage. Had a bite to try and it was yummy. A little nuke in the microwave in the AM and I'll be set.
As I was munching on my dinner, I started to crave bread... bad. I started to get a headache. I never get headaches! I texted dear old Stephanie and she said that is what is called the carb flu and to get used to it for a week or two. I should prepare to feel nauseous, tired, and crave for two weeks. After that I should feel golden. Let me tell you -- I wanted to cry. I felt like a hormonal teenager getting my period for the first time AND going through crack withdraws. Not even a whole day through and I was craving bread. Crazy how our bodies work. She told me to push through and it gets better. Mom suggest we take a dip in the pool. That did the trick. I felt much better. I feel better now.
As for the weight -- I lost 2.5 pounds the first week... then gained 1.5 pounds over the next two weeks. My exercise has been going well and my muscles are a lil achy so I'm not worried about the weight gain. I can tell a difference in my thighs - hallelujah! And, I even bought some new shorts and dresses :) I bought a dress a few weeks ago while I was on vacay that was too tight and I wore it last week! HOLLER!
