R3P2D10 Birthday Eve

Round 3 Week 2 of Phase 2 Day 10
No Injection Today
LIW: 168.2
Yesterday's Wt: 171.0
Today's Wt: 170.4
0.6 lbs LOST overnight

I am happy to say that I am that much closer to my LIW, finally!!

I didn't get very restful sleep last night, I went to bed early but didn't fall asleep until about 9-9:30pm. I awoke around 2:30am and could not fall back asleep. I started stressing about finances and a situation that occurred yesterday with one of the officers, but that is a whole other blog. I came into work today and felt that everyone is giving me a hard time. For some reason, I have been real emotional the last couple of days, strange that I didn't have my injection either of those two days as well. Anyway, I wanted to be in a better since today is my birthday's eve and I wanted to be in a better place. It is very cloudy today with some showers and it should be the same tomorrow. I don't mind it though, it is very rare that we get these types of days here in the desert so I enjoy them.

Yesterday's Menu:
B: 12 oz. coffee w/half & half, 2 pkts Splenda, 12oz. black coffee
L: grilled chicken salad, iceberg lettuce(bleh) and tomatoes
D: 1 Hoodia capsule, 1 Slimfast Optima shake, handful of Fritos

Yes, I know, my dinner options were not great but that is what I chose.

Biz, the hoodia just helps to make me feel full. There are no stimulants of any kind in it so I just use it in the late afternoon because nighttime is the worst when I feel hungry and want to raid the pantry, fridge, under the stove j/k!! I do really well during the day without hunger, but once the sun sets, I am transformed into some nocturnal beast that needs to feed!!

Monica & Renee, yes, unfortunately my mini break came too early in the game due to poor planning, but we'll see what happens.

Jen, no damage done by the Pringles but I should have made a better selection. (I'm still in shock about Heath as I watch all the entertainment news)

Crystal, thanks for the early birthday salutation and your menus sound so yummy, but I can't have any that right now, so I will live vicariously through you until you start P2 again!

Becca, yes I am the soon-to-be-skinny guinea pig (snort, snort) and I sure will keep you posted!!

Hi Mary! I hate those sleepless nights...I get so bugged if I don't get good sleep! Oh, happy birthday eve and nice loss today! I wondered about Hoodia...hmm, that would've really helped me last round.

Hope your day gets better. At least tomorrow you get to eat some yummy food! BTW, what is your position at the police station? I can't imagine what you deal with on a day to day basis!
