Aside from the pain I was in with my legs and TOM, yesterday was a good day. I don't think I had any side effects from the probiotics.
I am finding having to take these extra days off is taking a toll on me. I don't like it, but it's necessary to avoid further injury. I am feeling so much better today, but I'm still going to take it easy for one more day. There are still some aches in my legs and of course TOM...
I figure I might as well let my legs heal so I don't hurt my knees. Once I hurt my knees, I may not be able to run anymore at all.
So I'm taking today off too. I don't do pain. But seeing the scale hover around 226-227 is starting to hurt. I'll just have to suck it up. Eat well. Focus on my 6x/day eating. Then I'll be ready to hit the road running tomorrow.
Tonight Lee and I went to get groceries, and on the way home, we decided to pick up some iced coffees. 4-5 mouthfuls in my head was spinning and I felt nauseated. I guess I just can't handle sugar like I used to . Wow.
Before we went to get groceries, I was very stressed. I could not figure out why at first, but then figured it likely had something to do with the fact I hadn't eaten well all day long. I had a good breakfast, but then not much of anything - a bag of popcorn and a couple slices of GF raisin bread. Definitely not a balanced diet. So I started to think about what to eat to fix it. That's when Lee suggested we go for groceries. I passed by so many treats - skinny cow ice cream bars included. But I finally told Lee what I was craving - the iced coffee. We decided to pick some up. It's been about 3 months since I've had one. And since I've got 5 weeks before I have to go back on the strict cleansing diet, I decided to treat myself. I'm thinking now I won't do that again. Wow. What a reaction to it.
