It’s Super Bowl Sunday, but….Ever since the whole kneeling thing, I stopped watching football. Even the commercials kind of suck now, and that used to be part of the fun in watching the Super Bowl. I really don’t care who wins the Super Bowl this year. I bought squares in a pool at work, so I guess I’ll find out tomorrow if I won anything.
At 2:30am, my body decided to reject something I ate, and give me the gift of painful stomach cramps at the same time. Once again, a night of interrupted sleep. That’s now four nights in a row.
I went to bed after meal-prepping yesterday, just before midnight, and woke up at 7:45am (not including the intestinal assault). Waking up was difficult – my eyelids felt like they were taped shut. I eventually forced myself out of bed and got ready for the day, but I only lasted a few hours running errands before my stomach acted up again. Suddenly. This time, in Home Depot in front of a Sales Associate. Sorry, dude! Emergency!
After that, I was so exhausted, I needed a nap like a tantrum-throwing pre-schooler, and I generally felt lethargic and grumpy. I ate some leftover broccoli and cauliflower mash, then went to bed at 5:00pm. It’s now just after 7pm and my stomach is at it again.
The shittiest (no pun intended) part about today is that I barely ate anything, I expelled everything, and still gained a pound!!! That’s so messed up!!! Is my body holding onto water? What’s happening? And why is my stomach so messed up? Is it the fish? They said “sashimi grade” yesterday! Hubby’s tummy is fine. Is my body reacting to ghee? Did I pick up some strange bug? Whatever it is, I’d gladly buy it a one-way ticket back to from where it came!
I’m not hungry for dinner, for obvious reasons…. so, I’m probably going to just try to go back to sleep. Today was a not-so-great day for my Whole30.
What Little I Did Eat
This bit of food I did eat amounted to 986 Calories, and I’m truly not hungry. My tummy has other things on its mind than receiving food…
- B: Eggs w/ Spinach, Turkey Sausage, piece of orange
- L: A bite of Meatball and Zoodles, Cauliflower Mash, Blasted Broccoli, Prunes
- No din din – tummy boycott
- S: Rx Bar
I’m going to assume it was the ghee and take that back out of my diet for awhile. I also haven’t had red meat, except for a bite of meatball today, but I’m still feeling inflammation. Maybe I’m also consuming too much salt?
Here’s a progress picture. Tummy is going down, but still out and proud! Haha! I have less fat around my neck and face, but still have a loooooong way to go. I’m still a good 25 lbs above my wedding weight, where I thought I was a fat bride.
