Good morning all! Glad to be starting a new week.
, I would have eaten them all too. All those processed meats contain sooo much salt, don't they? I hope the retention goes down quickly.
, Good luck on the temptations you face on your trip. Knowing in advance what will probably happen I think makes it easier to plan and overcome. So sorry your friend is going through this!
, I am sure you will be where you want to by your next appointment. You have 2 weeks, and I know if you stick to your goals you will get there. Plus you have extra motivation in wanting good lab results. you can do it!
, don't let one weekend derail you. Start back on track today and you'll be fine. But you already know that!
, new medications can really work a number on us! Is the water retention something that will even out as you get adjusted to the meds, or is it just something that will always be as long as you take it? Although I personally think that 800 calories is too low, your Jump Start is only 3 weeks, and you are doing well to stay so committed. I hope at the end of the 3 weeks it will have worked for you!
I'm going to keep my goals pretty much the same...
1. Eat some fruits and vegetables each day.
3. Drink lots of water
4. Get enough protein and fiber
5. Overhaul and organize my pantry
It's going to be hard to keep myself motivated going to the gym without my son there to push me along. I'll be glad when his leg heals enough that he can go back!
Since I seem to have a hard time getting in all my meals and I'm often too low in protein and fiber, I bought some Atkin's shakes as a meal replacement or a smoothie base because they have tons of protein and fiber. We'll see how that works out.
I got a new toy delivered, and I can't wait to use it. I got a vegetable/fruit spiralizer/slicer/ribbon maker. A lot of my dishes and casseroles start with pasta, and I'm trying to avoid pasta. I'm looking forward to making zucchini and squash "spaghetti" and stuff like that. I hope the contraption works! It got good reviews on Amazon so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
I saw the 250's yesterday, and I was so excited! Although my sodium last night was high so I spiked back up a little, but at least I know the 260's will soon be a thing of my past...forever this time!!!
Here's to a good week for everyone!
