I'm on a course of antibiotics which is making me nauseous and forcing me to stay out of the sun. So I was glad for a cloudy, overcast day, after staying indoors for several. I did about 60 minutes total of brisk walking today, and was glad to accomplish this without further stomach upset. I'll see if I can manage a short run tomorrow, if the weather cooperates.Make notes
Diet is going well, though due to the meds, everything I eat makes my stomach hurt a little. Lots of soy yogurt to boost good intestinal flora, but other than that, trying to eat mostly unprocessed foods. Today as I was walking through the Mission I thought I'd really like to stop for a burrito, but I reminded myself that money is tight, and most tortillas are made with refined flour and oil. So I went home and made soft tacos with oil-free corn tortillas boyziggy bought, along with refried beans, baked tofu, tomatoes, lettuce, scallions, and just a smidgen of avocado. Also made a spritzer with freshly-squeezed orange juice and seltzer water. Very satisfying!
I've lost about three or four pounds, but won't get a true sense of my weight loss until I have my normal appetite back. I'll just be happy when I can fit into my smaller jeans again.
