Post-transplant it's very common for someone to gain about 20 lbs. I gained 50. Boo-yah! After A and I married, I could tell I was putting on a little but you know, I dress in abayaat and inside I wear house dresses soooo.. kinda easy for the weight to sneak on.
I thought I had gained the 7 lbs people often gain their first year of marriage. Well I was right, I did, plus 8 of it's friends!!!! :-( Add this to an already overweight body and geeze louise, no wonder I feel draggy and tired and fizzled out sometimes (often) occasionally. Hey it's my blog, I'll lie to myself if I want to! :-P
Anyway I used to keep a journal at FitDay. This kind of accountability works wonders for me plus I love charts and graphs. Nerd alert. ;-) Anyway I have faithfully recorded my intake thus far today. DISCLAIMER: In my defense, I ate alot of crap today I don't normally ingest. I mean yeah I might eat it occasionally but for some reason today, the day I started being cognizant of what I put in my mouth, I went crazy.
So by lunch time today here is what my pie chart for breakdown of calories looked like:
Well darn, it was supposed to say the numbers for each!!!! Anyway you should ideally have 40% carbs (not all sugar!!! lol), 30% fat and 30% protein. I had: 55% fat :-((, 32% carbs, and 13% protein. Woe is me. Really that is horrible although I fully blame the tasty little cream puffs that no longer fit in the freezer but HAD to be eaten.
Anyway. So I am going to try the fitday route again; once I can see where I make my errors in calculations (hello little frozen lovelies!) its' easier for me to be concious of what I put in my mouth.
Our body is an amanah (trust) from Allah and we will be responsible to answer for how we misused it. May Allah make this easy on me, amin. :-)
