I'm still under the weather today, but in a good mood otherwise. I got up this morning feeling icky with no appetite, so I ended up just having two mugs of coffee with sugar free creamer until about noon. I usually eat at 8am, 10am and 12, but just didn't want anything. I had some tea, too, then decided I needed a little something so I had a Medifast oatmeal raisin bar. Around 2, I actually got hungry so I scrambled some eggs (3) and had another cup of plain tea. Around 4 I had a bowl of corn chips. Yes, those ones I wrote about not really liking. Silly... I think it was the salt I was after. (No, I didn't buy them, but there they were on the counter!)
I think I will just have a Medifast orange drink later and call it a day. I don't really have an appetite.
Regardless of being sick or not, I want to make tomorrow and every day in February a 100% on plan day so that on March 1 I can feel good about going into Transition (basically, Medifast's 6-week plan to cut back on Medifast meals and add back in starchy vegetables, fruits, dairy, and grains). I might leave the grains out for awhile longer... not sure.
I find myself thinking less and less about food these days. Oh, I still have those occasional days where I focus on food, especially around PMS. But I think I am just sort of burned out on the whole dieting/nutrition/food thing and prefer to focus on other things. I just want simplicity. I am still going to make this my fittest year ever, by gradually reintroducing exercise again starting March 1. Until then, I am just doing some of my PT exercises to get ready for more strenuous stuff. It will be nice to focus more on activity and strength, and less on food. The food obsession has truly loosened its choke hold it used to have on me. I am thankful for that.
That's about it for today. Hope to have a nice soak in the tub and get to bed early.
