No daily weighing this week. It's already tough ... I SO wanted to just step on the scale for a peek, but I resisted.
I've been much more chilly this summer than any summer I ever remember. At first I thought it was just because this summer HAS been cooler than any summer I can remember but last week I went for a short walk with the guys at work and the moment we got outside they all started complaining about how hot and muggy it was that day. Hmm, I wasn't hot at all. I just felt great. I did think that it was because I had lost so much weight and therefore wasn't hot and sweaty. The guys I work with aren't overweight for the most part though. Then I remembered reading about calorie restriction a few weeks ago and how it can make you run cooler than the normal 98.6 body temperature. Interesting.
So I checked my temperature last night on our digital thermometer and guess what ... my body temperature is 96.7. I had Cro check his just to be sure the device wasn't off. His was 98.6. I checked mine again. 96.7. I guess I'm about 2 degrees cooler than the norm. No wonder I have been chilly and don't complain about the heat like the guys do. And I've been dreading the thought of winter!
I wonder if that means my metabolism is slower than normal due to the calorie restriction. Always something to contemplate and worry about. :P
