Hey guys, I finally remembered what my stomach problem was called. It is gastritis and it reared its ugly head today. I had such high blood pressure my vision was compromised. I had a spicy dinner and then went out and was bent over putting my signs in the ground for my campaign when suddenly I started getting a funny feeling and then my vision got crazy! I Immediately thought stroke and got home as fast as I could. WEll when I got home, my stomach was doing flips and I could feel the GERD so I figured it out and calmed down. I am all good now thank God and his grace.
Today was great! I am at day 3 of below 1500 calories. The only real issue was that I was hungry all day. Not starving but hungry. I had all my snack a bit earlier in the day than I usually do but I didn't have class tonight either so I knew I would be ok. Today was family fun night at Lauren's school, so Kathy picked me up and we went. We stopped at a little mom and pop and had supper. I wanted the chicken salad but they were out of the chicken, so I finally settled on the chili. I was not prepared for what happened next. The served it in a bowl that I had to guesstimate would be around two cups worth of bowl. I got our tray, brought it back and when my eyes met my bowl of chili, I automatically though, wow, that is a big bowl of chili...... I knew right off I would be able to finish even half of it! Holy crap, is it even possible that I thought that? I mean PJS (Pre-Journey Shane) would have never said that to this bowl, EVER!! I would say that this event shows me that a corner has been turned, that hope has held true and I do have new thought processes when dealing with portion sizes. I am so pumped to be writing about this! My brain is rewired folks! I just can't fathom it! Has anybody else experienced this and if so, did you get nearly the charge from it that I did?
It is pretty cool to be sitting around done with food for the day and be at 1385 calories! I am gonna give Christine a run for her money calorie count wise at this rate!!
I am gonna get off here and get my behonkus in the bed. Oh and for the record, no no jump rope this morning, but now that it has been talked about so much, I guess I will get it in tomorrow dang it! Thanks for keeping me on my toes guys.
