Cardio cross after work. I guess it had been a while since I spent time on the stairmill on a Monday. Good old drowning in sweat workout.
Day 6 of the challenge. Although I had all of my meals planned out today, the first bite of food I had today was a piece of chocolate. I had all of my blood work done today (5 vials, OUCH!) I was fine until I went to leave (about 10 minutes after they were done) then I got hot and dizzy. Ate the piece of chocolate and sat down for a while in front of the hospital until I felt fine to drive. I knew what I needed to do, i’ve passed out twice before after needles. I didn’t even look, guess my blood pressure went nuts anyhow.
Breakfast #1- Latte with skim milk from Starbucks. No soy, theirs is vanilla and has added sugar. Just skim milk latte, no flavoring. Note: I do not like plain unsweetened lattes, as I discovered today. I drank it anyhow, I needed something in my system.
Breakfast #2- Overnight chia yogurt with pineapple. I love my “built for fun” Texas Rangers cup!
Lunch- Sunny Mediterranean Wrap, bowl vegetable soup. As you can see, the insides of the wrap aren’t pretty, but gosh, after the onion, oil, cucumber, spices and sun-dried tomatoes marinated overnight, it was even better as a leftover!
Snack– apple and string cheese
Snack- baby carrots
Dinner- Mini Cheeseburger meatloaves (made my own sauce to ensure it was SF), new potatoes tossed in EVOO, salad
Snack: strawberries and sunflower seeds inside a lavash (random, I know)
So the blood work is done. Follow-up appointment with the new PCP in 2 weeks. How I feel seems to change on a day-by-day basis. I have a weird soreness now in my side, hurts to do burpees or anything else that engages my core, so that has been cut out. Not the same soreness I get 1 or 2 times a week, where my stomach is sore from being distended so much.
Moving forward. Hopefully blood work gives an indication of which way to go.
