Start of week 2

SW 3/1/13 =274.8
CW=271.4 no change
Calories = 1661
Net Carbs = 71g/18%
Fat= 107g/62%
Protein= 77g/20%

So my up days are still really not up. But even though they are on the low side of my allowable calories, the scale doesn't seem to want to move down. Go figure. Today is a "fast" day. So between my coffee and tea and Castor Oil I get 100 calories in the morning, and that leaves about 400 for my yogurt and then dinner. It works. I have planned it all out in MFP.

We have company again on Friday, so that will be a high calorie day for sure. Tuesday and Thursday are "fast" days, Wednesday a moderate day. I am in week 2. In order to be progressing in the right direction, I need to see below 268 on the scale at least once this week.

So yesterday the pollen hit. I am not allergic, but massive amounts in the doses I exposed myself to while I was gardening do mess with my sinuses. Consequently last night was one of the worst night's "sleep" I have had in a very long time. I did flush my sinuses last night before bed, but it was too little too late. I should have flushed them on Saturday and Sunday after gardening. I feel miserable right now. Throat is sore and sinuses are tight.
