BMI (Body Mass Index): 25.6 (officially overweight)
Yesterday started well enough but it turned out to be a tough day. Half an hour or so after I had my weight loss shake, I got a splitting headache that made me feel sick to my stomach. I also got hot and cold chills and stomach cramps. After some research, I felt that I was having these flu-like symptoms from the cold turkey caffeine withdrawal I elected to do. As much as I didn’t want to have any cola, I was unable to focus and be productive at work and so I bought the smallest size Dr. Pepper I could find. Within fifteen minutes of taking some sips, my headache was gone, my stomach eased up and no more hot and cold chills.
So I am disappointed that I’m not able to just cut the caffeine at once but will need to wean myself off over th next week. Sigh.
Other than that, it was fine – – I wasn’t hungry outside my meals and snacks. I walked my dog in the morning and in the evening so I did get that small bit of exercise. Hopefully this weekend or next week I can begin incorporating an exercise routine into my schedule.
