Today was easier than yesterday, probably because I was at work. I was kind of surprised that I wasn't more full than I was. I ate about as much as I normally do, except it was all sugar and calories rather than fruit and veggies. The high of the day was probably the strawberry pie. The low is definitely that I never really knew what heartburn was until today. (That could just be pregnancy too, though.)
Here you have it:
Weigh-in: 160lbs (to be fair, it was 162 before I went to bed last night)
Breakfast: bagel and cream cheese
-feeling: great! I love bagels!!!!
Snack 1: tapioca pudding
-feeling: fine. Not exactly what I wanted for a morning snack, but it was fine.
Snack 2: grape juice
-feeling: I remember this tasting a lot better when I was 12. Hmmm, what's that slight burning sensation in my chest?
Lunch: baked potato with Ranch and Salsa
-feeling: like I'm eating leftovers
Snack 3: strawberry pie
-feeling: Wow, this would taste a lot better if I got to enjoy it's sweetness more. And...that slight burning is turning into some major burning. Ouch!
Dinner: BLAT (bacon, lettuce, avacado, tomato) sandwiches, a little bit of cantaloupe, salad
-feeling: Hmmm, I didn't know heartburn could be so severe that it hurts to swallow.
Snack 4.1: Fast Break Candy Bar
-feeling: gotta love peanut butter and chocolate. And it definitely gets rid of the TUMS taste in my mouth. My heart is only burning a bit now.
Snack 4.2: Banana
-2 bananas before bed was way too much. Let's try one. Hopefully it'll give me my daily sugar AND fight those crazy charlie horses I get at night!
"Are you sure your heartburn isn't because of how much you love me?"
"Ooh, can I have more strawberry pie???"
