So this week I have made great efforts to watch my processed food/carb intake and it’s totally paying off! I can see the bones on my ankles once again, that puff on the top of my foot, almost gone. If I am right I expect a couple of pounda lost this week (it’s water weight) but that’s good, because that means I am getting the fluid off my body.
I have found a distinct correlation between carbs and swelling. I don’t have an exact number that I eat, but I try to range under around 100 day of processed carbs. I don’t count veggies and fruit though I do watch which ones I eat and about how much. I haven’t been tracking my calories mainly because I get obsessive over it.
But I am stoked to see the swelling go down. It makes me see that even though it sometimes sucks not to have all the carby things I love my body is happy to do with out it. That’s what’s important! I am still planning on getting the gym membership this weekend, although, I will admit I am a little scared. I haven’t done much in the exercise department the past few months but I KNOW I NEED to do this 🙂 My body needs conditioning 🙂
Plus, if I ever want to expand my family, and life well, I need to be well. Besides, I want to see my grow up! So this is important to me. I can’t allow something like food to trump those things! So, don’t forget to check back tomorrow, for Weigh in Friday and see how this week went 🙂
