I didn't exercise yesterday or today. My stomach is really bothering me. I think I went a little overboard on the fiber this past week and it has had some unexpected results. I have Crohn's disease and therefore need to be a little careful of what I eat fiber-wise. I should have eased into the fiber a bit slower. Oh well I guess I could chalk it up to lesson learned.
My parents took a big step today and bought themselves a dreadmill. My dad of course hurt his back getting the damn thing into the house. Hubby and I put it together for them, since we managed to put ours together last year without killing each other (and honestly my dad....not the handiest guy.....tries hard but NOT handy). So they are both starting on their own weight loss journeys. Kinda nice that we will all be on the same wave length as far as food goes.
I'm wondering if anyone else has this issue. I call it "food panic". You know the feeling you get when you have gone past mealtime just a bit too far. You stand at the cupboard door staring at the food in it and you just can't think what you could possibly eat. So you grab anything and everything and just stuff it in your face. Or you make an equally bad choice and go get some fast food.
I hate that feeling. I've had it a couple of times this week. Today I'm proud to say that I fought through it and had a salad instead of the chips, crackers, chocolate and everything else that was screaming my name. I have to plan better however, to avoid the feeling altogether. If I'm going to be out of the house (like today) I need to have a few snacks stashed in my purse, so that I can have a small something to tide me over, so the panic never hits.
