It is Saturday the 5th of July, I missed my weigh in post for yesterday because I was out all day and was up late the night before because of spending 4 hours in the ER at the Hospital, a day or so before Thursday I had noticed that when my daughter went poop there was something that looked like blood in it but since we had crushed tomato in dinner the night before we did not want to panic and decided to check the next time she went, and then Thursday we were at my Mother in laws place and kiddo went to the bathroom and it was red again so we drop everything and off to the ER, we ended up sitting there for about 4 hours to thankfully find out that the red was because of what she was eating and they said it was a combination of all of the watermelon that we have been eating and that some of it was undigested melon and the dye from some fruit snacks that wify had bought last week, though I was not thrilled at the 4 hours we were there 3 of which were spent waiting to see a second doc for a whopping 3 mins, I was thrilled that it was just dye and lotsa melon, alls well that ends well and my heart is back in my chest instead of my stomach and we now have a funny story for our daughter when she gets a little older.
Now onto the weigh in for this week, I did not weigh myself Friday morning, I was beat from the Hospital visit and we were heading out for the day and I just forgot that it was even Friday because wify was home for the holiday and before we get to what I weighed lets cover yesterday for a moment. 1685 calories were consumed and there was a dairy queen cone in there at some point, we grilled BBQ chicken on the grill and had a salad , dirty rice and corn for dinner and then went fishing for a couple hours, it was a nice easy day and just what I needed. we also had some fireworks for the kids later that night so we set those off and the kiddos loved running around with sparklers, or what passes for sparklers these days. this morning when I woke up I wanted to get right on the scale and see what the damage was because I knew I was not less than last week and I was right, I came in at four hundred thirteen pounds today which is up one pound from last week, but I do believe that last weeks weigh in was lower than it should have been because of dehydration so I am not worried about the 1 pound up that I see. We also watched a movie last night after the kiddos went to sleep, A river runs through it, I will admit that it was a good movie, I had never seen it before last night which wify couldn't believe. I did have a handful of her popcorn while watching it but I did count it on my intake so I feel no guilt for it.
Heres the things to consider with my weight this week and it will get a little nasty (poop talk coming up as well as advice needed) so if you do not wish to read about poop skip this paragraph. Houston! we have a problem! lately I have not been lets say regular, before yesterday it had been more than 2 days but less than 3 that I had a movement. and yesterday (after some fluid loading and BBQ chicken) the earth moved and septic systems everywhere groaned at what had occurred, just after dinner I had a knot in my stomach and every part of my body screamed at the same time to get into a bathroom NOW! I honestly had the image in my head from Lord of the rings where Gandalf was fighting Balrog and tells Frodo "Run you fool!" so that I did, and 30 minutes and 12 flushes later I walked downstairs weak and dazed from what had just happened looking enough like I had just run a marathon for wify to ask "are you ok? you are covered in sweat" and the rumbling subsided. with that I do want to ask for opinions and ideas as to what I can do to become more regular again, anyone that would like to take a look at my menus and maybe see something that I am missing that would cause this please all opinions will be read, just know that dehydration is not an issue 95% of the time and everything I eat is on my menus. The other thing to consider as far as my weight this morning goes is that I drank a gallon of green tea while watching the movie last night so I do believe that some of the weight has to do with that little fact.
Here is the menu from Friday.
2 multi-grain english muffins 200
2 eggs 140
1 tbsp miracle whip 35
3oz roasted chicken 150
2 slices whole wheat bread 140
1 tbsp miracle whip 35
dill pickle 5
small dairy queen cone 230
8.5oz chicken 425
green salad w/Newmans own light honey mustard 120
3/4 cup dirty rice 185
hand full of popcorn 20
Grand total of 1685 calories for the 4th and my weight is at 413 this morning, and I am good with it all. I know this week is going to bring a big drop in weight and I honestly believe that the huge drop off at the bowl in addition to the huge amount that I drank yesterday will make a difference in what I weigh tomorrow when it all regulates a bit. Thanks for reading along.
