Today I have a migraine. I am 99% sure it is due to lack of sleep, since my diet has been healthy and grain free. I am averaging 2 hours of sleep a night with a sick child. I think she is on the mend now so perhaps tonight will be better. I hope so, because we have a weekend trip planned for dog sports that I'm really looking forward to. Crossing fingers for her to be back to school tomorrow!
I got on the scale and saw 221 again. No loss. I am not terribly shocked, since I had that 1500 calorie day in there which bumped my average intake back up to about 1300/day this week, which I've found is "maintenance." My eating's been good. Today I had a salad for lunch that was excellent, with lots of veggies and avocado. But I have to say that lately I am suffering from diet fatigue (sorry but measuring every bite and adding up calories, fat, carbs and protein everyday still do not feel like a 'lifestyle' to me) and am just tired of thinking about it. Sometimes I look at the boxes of leftover Medifast in my room and think about doing the 5 &1 Plan for a week or two to see if it jump starts me out of this plateau, and to get a break from thinking about eating... a break from tracking. Just a break. I dunno. I am too tired to figure it out today.
