Day 3...was ok. It was hard to make myself eat today b/c I was nervous about going to the doctor.
Breakfast: 1c. Kashi cereal w/ almond milk, blueberries, 3 slices turkey bacon
This is where it began to get difficult to eat....
Lunch: Whole wheat tortilla w/ 2 slices part skim Mozzarella cheese, romaine and arugula, 1 tbsp. Newman's Own Ranch dressing, lemon ginseng green tea
From here, I spent a lot of time outside with my kids...didn't do any physical activity myself though b/c I felt bad (hence the reason I went to the doc). I spent over 2 hours at the doctor's office...yay! (can you sense the sarcasm?) lol
Snack: 2 tbsp. trail mix
Dinner: Cubesteak and gravy, 1/2 c. brown rice, veggies (baby carrots, green and yellow greenbeans)
And before you gasp and say, "Gravy?!!?" I will tell you how I made it. I used 1 tbsp. of butter, 2 or 3 tbsp. of whole wheat flour, and 2% milk. I honestly do not like Cubesteak and gravy but it is my husband's favorite meal in the world and when I started this diet we made a compromise that I would still make it...just healthier. Cubesteak and gravy here where I live is like a really popular meal....very southern cuisine...I never have fit in here. LOL
Night Snack: Handful of trail mix with 1/4 c. Bear Naked granola (Vanilla almond crunch) w/milk
And I am still hungry....I definitely should have eaten my big salad at lunch or included a couple more veggies or fruit. I'm suffering now...I'm going to go drink the rest of my green tea and not give into temptation.
Good news today is I will begin a new medication for my PCOS...one that hopefully will not make me sick. I am also starting a water pill that will help stop my hair from thinning (another nasty symptom of PCOS) and will help with another condition I have...lymphedema. Keep me in your thoughts though....had a lot of blood work today and am hoping they figure out what's wrong with me (besides the fact I'm crazy and becoming a hypochondriac-did I spell that right??).
