If I knew then what I know now I would have been so much less optimistic. The toothache from hell has taken over my life! I am now, one week later, finally on the mend. I didn't end up having to go to the hospital, but it got close at the end of last week.
Today is the first day I was able to exercise and I made it 30 minutes on my stationary bike then I was exhausted. I have finally lost a few pounds from not being able to eat or go out and that feels great! At least it gives me something to motivate me to get back in the swing. The one thing I never wavered on was my food logging. I am truly surprised that I did it, but the Myfitnesspal app kept reminding me to log in and telling me how many days straight I had logged in. I have been recording my food for over 30 days and that is really satisfying. I was feeling so low last week, and it feels great to have some positive things at the end of it all.
Now I have to really buckle down and work hard to lose weight before vacation. I really think I could lose 5 more pounds before Hawaii. One thing that's really helping my weight right now is I haven't had any wine in over two weeks. Being sick interrupted my work out's, but it was off set by the lack of food and wine so I really need to just concentrate on moving forward and doing my best.
