I have had such major restriction the last few days and I'm not sure why. I did return to work yesterday - perhaps unconsciously I was thinking about it and the stress increased my restriction. Today all I could eat was a protein shake for lunch b/c when I tried to eat some pasta with tomato sauce I got majorly stuck and PB'd. I'm noticing that many of you actually say that you throw up (sorry for the grossness) food when you PB. I've never done that. I just 'throw up' spit but never any food. I wonder why. Doesn't matter, really. Just wonder why.
I'm really liking the pedometer in my iPod nano. What I don't like, however, is that my new ipod won't play in my Bose speaker thing-y that I use for my other ipods. I probably just need to download some updated software for my speaker system, but what a PITA (pain the the ass!).
I'm thinking some of my restriction may also be part of this underlying decision I need to make sometime in January about my personal future-deciding to either stay with the company and move to either Charlotte, NC, Burlington, NC, or some other place. If I move, my husband loses his job. If I stay, I lose mine. If I move they will pay to relocate me but I will have to sell my house. I don't think renting my house would be a great idea because I just don't know how well a renter would take care of my house. I would, however, like to have something to come back to someday. Its such a big and life changing decision. Either way, our family is taking a paycut - either mine or my husbands. But he could be a stay at home Dad and be a really great one!
Sigh - the stress I think is creating this restriction. The restriction is definitely causing some weight loss. I really want to lose these 5lbs and get into the 190's! I got so hooked on chocolate things over Christmas that I think I gained maybe a lb. Not bad, but I am actually sick of chocolate. I'm also struggling to eat broccoli. Its just too dense and causes me to get stuck. I am doing much better eating the foods I need to be eating, however. So those steps are in the right direction. I need to put my ipod to work and EXERCISE! I know I do, why don't I just do it? I need to figure out and plan in my day where I'm going to fit it in. When I worked out consistently for about 2 years, I worked out during my lunch hour. Clearly that worked for me, I need to just do that again!
