W1D6 - no jolt
Monday, September 20, 2010
Thats correct..I cant have my daily jolt. No more caffeine. I'm not supposed to have it at all with my new way of eating. Thats tough for me. I'm the caffeine addict that would drink a POT of coffee every morning by myself (no other coffee drinkers in my house) and while I was in school, I also added a lo carb monster. Now all of that is loooooong gone. Today I had one mug full of HALF caffeinated/half decaf coffee. And, let me just say, it didnt do a thing to wake me up. I had to be up for work by 4:15 today..i didnt get up until 4:45! Yikes. Nothing got me going. I am not a rush around in the morning type either. I love my morning time. I am slow, the house is quiet, I just take my time, doing my thing, watching the news, eating breakfast, coffee etc. Not today! Then I had to sit in traffic on a looong drive! That definitely didnt help wake me up. I've been laggin all day today.
I hope soon that my natural peppy self will shine through the new 'decaf version' of myself but maybe that was my secret. Maybe the caffeine was what made me loud and peppy! Say it isnt so. Otherwise im gonna have to be getting up at 3:00 am to exercise so i can have endorphins. Lord help me.
My eating has been SPOT on for days now! I am so proud of myself. My sister even made BROWNIES and I am not tempted by them (yet lol). I've been tracking, staying in my calorie range and tonight..i even was able to enjoy only a 1/4 c of cheese with my steak taco (low carb corn tortilla). SO yum! I've upped my freggies, havent had ANY soda and NO fast food whatsoever! I just hope the scale reflects all this hard work. Because trust me, its been hard. I'm still learning what i can and cannot have, what will and wont spike my blood sugars. Its hard for me.
Oh! my work gave me a funky schedule this week. BLEGH. No friday off. Instead they have me working in the office on FRIDAY and my day off is THURSDAY. And wednesday is a ridiculously long day of 60..thats right SIXTY patients. Absolutely insane. I hate that. Not happy about this weeks weird schedule, but what i can i do? nothing. Grrr. Alright, thats all I have for you today. Sorry this blog has been kind of complainyish (like that?)
Let me leave you with this..my scrubs are feeling a little loose so..my competition better be SHAKING IN THEIR SHOES!!!
