I am feeling viciously crabby today, I gotta warn you.
Luckily, no one is home to endure my ire. I took most of it out on my unsuspecting lawnmower, as I cut the grass that can be seen from the street. Another small portion of rage was given to the television for having nothing on that I wanted to watch. If no one actually calls and talks to me today, the world should all survive.
Generally I am bitchy, but not this bitchy. The reason for this? I did not take anything for the cramps, because I read that can delay the onset of the big event, the starting of your period. I really just want to get it over with, particularly before the goal of next weekend.
Anyhow, back to the important stuff of the day: how is the diet going?
Very well, despite the fact I'm not really seeing it on the scale. I chalk that up to the onset of my monthly PMS bloating and general ickiness. On the bright side, as several wise friends pointed out, I am usually up three or four pounds by now, so I'm fairly happy to be remaining the same-ish.
Today, I am actually not really hungry. It's the first day I have not ravenously scarfed down all that was on my list of foods to eat today. I actually left some veggies out of dinner because I have to get one more protein serving in and I want to be able to do so.
Horror of all horrors, I got up this morning and was out of egg whites! I started off the day on the wrong foot by having to go to the grocery store hungry and un-caffeinated. Once I was there, I found a brand of egg whites that had 0g carbs - the ones I've been eating had 2 g. I got enough to last 6 days. Each little carton is one breakfast serving for me. I was in a mushroom mood, and since I discovered I don't have to limit my veggies like I had been I made a delicious omelet brimming with mushrooms and a sprinkle of cheddar.
For lunch I made another batch of chicken chop suey. Not because it's so good, although it is, but because bean sprouts go bad very quickly.
