I'm just going to say it. I have taken my Kidney Stones to a whole new level of excuses...
I have been very lethargic all week...I think it's from the IV at the hospital. I called my diet Dr.... and she did confirm that protein shakes can "stir up" kidney stones, but do not cause them. Unfortunately, I can't change my parents...so I'm pretty much destined to get them.
With that being said, I took this week off my diet...and went a little crazy. Monday-Mellow Mushroom, Tuesday- Taco Bell, and today- Wendys. UGH. What was I thinking!?
I did go to my diet Dr. today...I amazingly did not gain weight. I used wanting to sit down with her to go over kidney stone prevention at my next appointment as an excuse to eat crap all week... Not smart.
Anyways, I am starting back tomorrow. Full force. No excuses. She gave me a list of things to do while I'm on protein shakes to prevent kidney stones...so I can't be afraid.
Funny thing was, my Dr. told me that she understood if I wanted to stop the diet.... I almost laughed. As painful as a kidney stone is.... being fat is JUST AS PAINFUL. I'm taking my chances and getting the rest of this weight off.
Yes, I know starting tomorrow is just a form of procrastination...(why not start today?). Well, I've already eaten a bacon/blue burger from Wendy's and my husband and I have a "date night" to celebrate paying off one of the credit cards.... I almost feel like today is shot. So, I will start tomorrow...it's a new day.
Until next time...
