Monday Motivation: Post 6

I have eaten a salad practically every day and increased my exercise, so I was hoping for another loss this week.
I’ll cut to the chase………… a gain of two pounds.
In hindsight and food analysis, I’m not surprised, but I am disappointed.
I’ve been feeling a little ‘sloshy’ and my ankles have swollen up terribly during the day.
I know exactly why, water retention, and it’s all down to the rabbit stuff.
It’s been proven before, too much salad for me and the body goes into starvation mode, storing everything in fear of never been fed burger and chips again.
Not that I have burgers and chips on a regular basis, in fact I cannot remember the last time I had a portion of chips, let alone a burger!
Oh well, what’s eaten is eaten and I can only try better. I shall be drinking plenty of water this week as believe it or not, that is the best thing for water retention!
The good news is we’ve walked an average of 2.59 miles a day this week compared to 1.57 last week (only 4 days of March) due to bad weather.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.
