Day 17 (100 Days of 100 Carbs) - Dreary Says it All!
My Current View - July 23, 2020
This is the first day in which I have not left my cabin. The picture is pretty much the way it has looked all day with occasional emphatic sound effects (thunder) and pyrotechnics (vivid lightening) thrown in. Dreary does say it all, but dreary doesn't have to mean bad. For me, the timing was perfect! The antibiotic I began yesterday for a sinus/ear infection has kicked in and to put it bluntly, I feel even worse than I did without the antibiotic. No surprise there - that's why I hate taking them. But I also know they work. So the rainy, dreary day gave me the perfect excuse to lay on the sofa and read. I have enjoyed that immensely. I am not a nap taker or daytime sleeper even when under the weather, but I have to admit, there's been a few times this afternoon when I've looked at the clock and wondered where that last hour went!! LOL!
I am learning some pretty interesting things about the way I eat when I am not on a low-carb challenge and I'll get into that another time when I feel more like fleshing it out, but today, keeping something in my stomach at all times (to counteract the stomach distress caused by an antibiotic) and keeping myself to under 100 carbs is just not going to happen. Nothing sounds good and nothing tastes good. This will pass and in the meantime, I'll continue to log all foods and continue to do the best I can under the circumstances.
Yesterday was my highest carb count to date. Frankly, when I sat down to log, I thought it would be even higher. Sometimes, the logging is encouraging because I haven't done as poorly as I would've thought without the accountability of logging.
Day 16 Recap:
Total Carbs: 174
Total Steps: 10812
