Lots going on with me right now. I am feeling a little better. I think that my problem is related to protein powder- either its tainted stuff or the sucralose is killing me. :( I finally got the pattern figured out. I am using 2 different brands of protein powder and they both contain sucralose. I only start feeling nauseated and sick after drinking a shake. I have no idea why it would start recently, but maybe my body has had enough? I don't know what is going on, but I need to do more whole foods and ask Tony what else to do or try. I can seriously not eat anything decent after drinking a shake in the morning. I can only manage saltines and graham crackers. Let me tell you how much my body is lovin' that! Grrrrr. I'll be doing some research on proteins powders and sweeteners.

I stopped by my old work. I haven't seen my old coworkers in almost a year. They saw me and said so many nice things. Awww. :D I even got called skinny butt! LOL Yeah right, but I'll take the compliment anyway. :D It really pumped me up. I know I can do better, too. :)

And for the big news...... (no I'm not preggo!)

My feet are dumb. I have bunions- but not normal bunions. LOL I have to have surgery to correct them. One foot at a time. *blah* I will be off one foot completely for 6 weeks and then I get a cool boot thingy for 2 weeks after that. *ugh* I guess LOTS of upper body workouts and the Air Dyne bike will be perfect! I go back in a month to go over procedures and schedule an official date. I just have to work things out at work so I have money and a job! I was going to put it off for a few months (like the beginning of the 2009) but if I want to do a March Comp, there's no way! Poo poo poo! I guess I really need to figure this out quickly. I can make a lot of money at work around Christmas time so I'd hate to be out for that.
Lots of thinking to do. AND lots and lots and lots of cardio to do before then. I can't waste another minute. I really wanted to be at my goal weight before I did this, but it seems like that will have to change.

OH!!! And totally stupid thing-- hee hee hee hee hee-- I bought LEG WARMERS!!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. The 80's have returned!

Oh no! Not leg warmers! LOL Sucralose has never affected me like that, but sorbitol does. Sheesh, if I eat two sugar free candies I give myself a colon cleanse! LOL
I really like the Syntrax Nectar protein powder. It has sucralose too, but maybe it is just the brand you're using?
Hope you're feeling better soon!
