Day 1: I felt really jittery in the morning after taking Spark (I don't normally consume a lot of caffeine) and then in the afternoon I felt SUPER tired. I decided to switch my Spark drink to the afternoon instead of the morning.
Dinner: eating out at The Bottle. I ordered scallops and couscous. I was very proud of myself for skipping the bread offered on the table.
Day 2: I felt great today and had so much energy!
Dinner: sausage, green beans, and apples saute
Day 3: Today was awful! I felt so sluggish and barely had any energy to work out. I told Sam he would have to cook dinner because I was too tired to do anything.
Dinner: pork, green bean, and red pepper stir fry
Day 4: I don't feel as tired as I was yesterday, but I'm still too tired to cook dinner.
Dinner: salad and soup at Panera's
Day 5: I've been getting a headache everyday this week. I do get chronic migraines (and take preventative medication) but these aren't migraines, just annoying headaches. I'm wondering if the Spark is to blame for my headaches. I decide to not drink any Spark the next two days and see what happens.
Dinner: Sam's company 40th anniversary party. I ask for the gluten free dinner option and get pulled chicken with a gluten free bun (I only had about 1/4 of the bun), cucumbers and tomatoes, baked beans, and a baked apple.
Day 6 and 7: I don't drink Spark these two days and didn't have any headaches. I keep forgetting to take my Omega Plus vitamins with dinner.
Dinner, Day 6: sausage and beer festival (I didn't drink any beer). I skipped all the fried sausage options and was very proud of myself for declining a strawberry cupcake. Cake is my favorite food! I did eat two hushpuppies without thinking, and I realized after the fact that they were fried. Duh! Oh well.
Dinner, Day 7: salmon, soba noodles, and zucchini and onion saute
Day 8: I'm supposed to be drinking the fiber drink for the next 3 days, but my stomach really hurts today so I skip it.
Dinner: Tuscan pork chops and corn on the cob
Day 9: My stomach still hurts so I skip the fiber drink again.
Dinner: tilapia with corn, zucchini and tomato saute
Day 10: I just don't feel like taking the fiber drink again. I also forgot to take Spark today. I'm just not sure if I want to keep taking Spark. I don't think it gives me much energy and it seems to give me headaches and make me feel jittery.
Dinner: I have a work dinner at a restaurant and eat chicken with zucchini and creamed corn. I also ate two tiny pieces of bread.
Day 11: I leave for vacation today and just forget to take all the various pills. Being in the car for 10 hours has really gotten me off my normal schedule.
Dinner: The Lettered Olive. I ordered mahi mahi with butterbean and corn succotash and got key lime pie for dessert (hey, I'm on vacation!)
