Did the increase today, and went to 75 grams of carbohydrates, but less than 12 grams of sugar. I had lots of ambition - did a LOT, especially in the morning. It was one of those 'more done by noon than done all week' sort of days again... But by four o clock I was ready to go home and rest, have dinner and take a nap! I didn't get the nap - we watched a movie. And in a few hours it will be time for bed. I'm trying to stay up long enough to read Esme her bit of book. I can sleep a little later tomorrow.
Will go by the same plan tomorrow, and see if my energy picks back up after getting used to the change. I was thirsty again, today, too - very thirsty, all that water adding back in to process the carbs.
I bought some better olive oil, new green olives and more coconut milk - as I won't be completely changing the way I was eating the past week, just adding the carbs in to balance things out. I'm still eating less than the recc. amount of calories, so we'll see what happens - weigh myself sometime towards the end of the week and see how things have worked out.
We got some of Esme's birthday presents in the mail the other day, and I wrapped them up already. Also got a new book for us to read after 'A Wrinkle in Time', - which is 'The Sixty Eight (Thorne) Rooms'. I really liked reading that book myself last year. My Dropkick Murphys CD has come and I'm still waiting on my 'Run Away (killer rabbit)' tshirt ;)
