So I was reading through some support posts and these ladies were talking about being nauseous. I was thinking "well that sucks!" A few hours later I'm makin my lunch and I was so frieken nauseous! It was like i frieken caught it! Lol I had to sit down and close my eyes and take deep breaths twice while prepping my lunch. it was not fun. But i felt a little better, ate my lunch, and felt much better.
i watched a 4 part documentary that the guy who is teaching my nutrition seminar had recommended to me, today. it was awesome and I am going to post the links when i summarize the seminar for you. i learned something really crazy though that i have to share. when someone loses a bunch of weight, their metabolic rate is not the same as someone who is naturally that weight. so the person who has lost weight must eat 20% less in order to maintain the same weight as another person. this is why when i eat "normal" like my friends eat, i gain weight. I am eating 20 % too much! a light bulb went off in my head that was like, "ok, well that sucks, i literally am going to have to cut back and count calories for the rest of my life!" but there was another part of me that was relieved. i know how to be fat and i know how to lose weight. I dont know what i will do when it comes time to maintain. since i now know maintaining is going to require some constriction anyways, im less worried,
coconut collard greens was a recipe for dinner. i had made it with spinach instead but it was SO good. add that to the list ill be eating post reset.
today another girl in my group is going through the "ultimate reset blues". i feel bad for her, but know theres not much i can do but say encouraging words. i hope it passes quickly like it did with me!
i still REALLY miss working out. and i have a confession. i had kind of a hard time picking today. i kept eating an almond here, almond there, and eventually about a half cup of almonds (yikes!) almonds are on the plan so its not a terrible screw up, but snacking on almonds all day is not part of the plan, so it IS a screw up as far as re-setting goes. trying not to let it get me discouraged. im ready for a great 9 days. im even more ready for post reset life!!
