Weak, weak, weak. That is all I feel any more. This weekend I spend most of it laying in bed relaxing and sleeping since, I wake up at 2 or 3 in the morning and can't get back to sleep until about 7 a.m. I have to get a handle on this before work in the morning. My boss is sure to noticed my slow movements and restless nature (which I get when I am in any kind of discomfort)
My back hurts all the time when I sit. My best friend suggested taking a pillow with me to place in my lumber section to help with my pain. She said it sitting up straight hurts and slouching to trying to get rid of the pain doesn't work either, maybe a pillow would. I know it is probably my weak back muscles. I will have to look up some exercises that help with strengthening back muscles once my energy levels get better.
As I said, I feel weak all the time. Just walking in the grocery store tires me out. I feel like an invalid at times, because I just don't have the energy to do anything. After being at my best friend's house, just getting home, getting in the house was a chore. I just walked back to my bed room with my cold water and plopped on the bed and laid there with the cold, cooling bottle of water. When I had a bit more energy, I went and got my cold pack out of my freezer and enjoyed that a bit on my hot skin.
I am still getting nauseous, but I don't know if it is beause I am not drinking enough water. I vomited twice. Once last night and once this afternoon and it was filled with mucus, which has been draining continuely for a while now.
My weakness got so bad in public, I had 4 sips of cranberry just because I was worrying about passing out in public. I think I might have to much and slowed my ketone burning. I can't tell, because I accidently left my ketone bottle in my car, where is says you are not suppose to allow them to hot,so I think I ruined them. They all register 80 when I used them.
I can't sleep most of the time because sleeping on my side hurts, sleeping on my stomach causes discomfort. I get so tired at times.
I weighed myself today and I am now 134 pounds. Which is not bad for just 11 days. I have lost 16 pounds and I can really feel it. It is a good feeling, but all my weakness and nausea, I am not enjoying it much. My face is thinner of course, as my fingers and feet. My calfs are shapely, as my thighs are being whittled of fat. My hips are starting to show. But no change in my stubborn mid section fat. LOL.
Day 14 is only 3 days away, I hope the nausea gets better before long. I have been trying to drink more water, but warm water just turns my stomach anymore. It has to be cold or it is hard for me to drink. I can't say I drank a lot today. Like I said I am having problems wanting to drink water when I am really not thirsty, but I am sure that is the reason for a nausea.
P text-ed last night saying " I am not coming back Sunday LOL fyi" I was a bit upset that I started gagging in my bedroom. I asked him if he was coming back at all. He said "of course" but I don't know if he is just saying that or he means it. I really miss him and his son being around. I did't cry last night, which was good. I was alot calmer then I thought I would be about the sudden shock that he wasn't come home on Sunday. I was so excited and waiting for him to come home. Well, he doesn't consider this his home, but nevertheless, I was so very excited and happy to be seeing him again. My heart was very light until I got that text. Oh, well. My life seems to go in those disappointing directions nowadays
My tongue is still white and I have to brush my teeth several times a day to cope with it. I can still taste my filling in my top tooth. Yuck!
I guess I am doing well with this fast. I am still staying strong and moving forward.
