I planned this round of HCG very carefully. I have a really hard time waking up early on Sunday mornings, so I wanted that to be my 7th day. You know? The one where you don't shoot yourself in the leg to give your body a bit of a rest? Yeah, that one.
The problem is this: Here it is, just past noon, almost time for me to eat lunch I might add, and I still haven't eaten my morning apple. Why is that? Well, because I woke up at 10. You can't eat for a full hour after waking up. At 11 I was just starting to get ready and putting the Munchkin into the tub for his morning soak. Now here I sit, blogging at 12:15 PM, hungry, and wondering why. Then I remember, oh yeah, I forgot to eat my apple AGAIN!
This happens regularly. I routinely forget to take my morning apple with me to work. Sure I remember my lunch, but remembering a tiny little apple seems like almost too much for my brain this round. I don't get it.
But, the good news is that I have lost about 5 lbs, so I'm really quite happy. My once-tight-then-too-loose-then-too-tight designer jeans now fit only snugly instead of the "I can't breathe when I wear these" fit, and I'm starting to need the assistance of a belt again to keep them up once they stretch out. I no longer have to pour myself into them, too, which is nice. I really hated jumping up and down to get them up.
I'm taking my measurements tomorrow. My first round I took them daily. My second round I only took them the first week. This round I think I'll stick with once weekly and be surprised by the progress I'm making....hopefully in the right direction! ;)
