One week of low carb is done! Well, six days actually but a whole week on plan (if you count Thanksgiving and I am). I actually feel pretty good. The cravings aren't too bad and the headache has really mellowed out.
I was hoping for a bigger loss on the scale but I need to keep in mind that, thanks to Thanksgiving, I may have weighed more last weekend than my last Thursday posted amount and, frankly, 1.5 pounds in a week isn't bad at all!
Today I had some higher carb treats... not a giant cheat day or a binge but just two little things and I'm not sure I'll do that again. They tasted really good but, not, like, great or anything and I don't know if I'll miss them enough to have them again but it's always good to try things out. Tomorrow I am right back on track with low carb and today counts as the start of a new week despite the one day of higher carbs (but NO binging which is huge for me!).
This week I have one major meal planned which will be my homemade taco salad (it makes 4 servings) and then I'll work in veggies and berries along with other low carb foods throughout the week. I haven't been really hungry, probably because of the whole depression thing, so I'm having a hard time finding foods I actually want to eat and that are low carb but I am really proud of surviving the week!
Psychologically we're still looking for a new med dosage that will help me and there's really no change there. The depression is still hanging on pretty badly and I don't really have much more to say about it right now.
I do want to start working out this week and I think I'll begin by using a DVD. I have one that's divided into 3 15-minute segments which is a combo of light weights, pilates, yoga and some ballet moves that I used to love to do so I think I'll start with that one tomorrow. I know I'm used to hour long workouts but something is better than nothing and I can always work my way back into my non-DVD workouts as I go. A short workout is better than no workout and I'm really hoping it'll help with the depression as well.
So, all in all, I had a pretty good week and I stayed on plan for the first time in a long time! Go me!
