Day 2 - 5/15/20

I woke up this morning with a really, really bad headache and some dizziness.  After taking some medicine, I started to feel better.  Then it was off to work in my dining room in my pajamas.  I really hate working from home.  I get distracted easily (mostly from my kids) and have to work on the weekends to make up the time that I lost to those distractions.  I can't wait for the day that I can work in the office again.  I have gone through bouts of depression and hopelessness.  I don't like being home all the time!  I'm sure there are a lot of people that would agree.

Friday is my grocery shopping day so I headed out early so I would be there right when they opened.  I didn't feel prepared as I hadn't done any research on some good weight watchers friendly products.  I ended up going on Youtube later after I already did the shopping and found some great ideas that I will be trying out.  I will be heading out to the store again tomorrow to pick up these items if my store has them.

In the future, I will try to show a grocery haul through pictures.

At home, I have some high point value products that I will have to use up.  It will fit into the plan but I will be using a lot of points on certain meals.  I don't want to waste food.  Over the next few weeks, I will be making a few small changes to things I already eat like switching from whole milk to low fat milk.  The small changes will actually save me a lot in points.

The rest of the day went well.  I walked for 30 minutes on the treadmill.  I actually felt like walking longer but I decided to break a sweat cleaning up the house a bit.  Only the 2nd day in and I am already feeling more energy!

One of the two downsides to trying to be healthier is I am in the bathroom every 30 minutes.  I'm pretty sure I have the smallest bladder ever.  I am drinking 64 oz. of water a day on top of my 2 cups of coffee.  I can handle it during the day but at night it is a nightmare getting up so much.  I probably get up at least 4-5 times during the night.

The other downside is the headaches I've been getting.  I know this is only temporary but it makes staying on track difficult.  I know if I had a candy bar and a coke, I'd feel better.  I'm not going to do that.  This is hard but worth it.

I'm looking forward to tomorrow which is the start of the weekend.  I'm trying to figure out things I can do with the kids and husband that everyone would enjoy outside.

Until next time,
Pam
