My body is wrecking my good intentions

Thursday, November 02, 2017

I am hoping to lose weight. A lot of weight. I know some of the things I have to do. Eat more veggies and fruits. I have to drink 6 to 10 glasses of water. And I have to increase the amount of exercise I get.

So this morning I had a bowl of fruits with my cereal and milk and I drank 2 glasses of water. At 8:30 I headed out for a walk. Halfway through my destination, I got a familiar feeling. I had to urinate. The more I tried to ignore it, the more I felt a pressing need. By the time I reached my destination...get out of my way anyone between me and the washroom.

For lunch I had spaghetti squash with a tomato based sauce (no meat) and a side order of crackers and hummus. Then I went to a meeting. I began cramping. I mean really cramping. I went out in the hall and liberated the thunder in my belly. What a smell. I prayed no one joined me in the hall. I went back into the meeting room and soon I felt it starting all over again.

If this stuff is so good for me, why am I so miserable?

I spent an hour with a nutritionist last week. We went through one day of my food choices. Oh my....too much carbs, too much salt and was I serious about losing weight because if I was I had better stop snacking before bed. Then she said she sure hoped I was getting enough sleep because insomnia was one of the causes of obesity. I can't sleep with my stomach growling. Sorry.

It seems my body is really balking my good intentions.
