You know that saying, "I'm so hungry I could eat a horse", Well today I would eat just about anything someone put in front of me. I have been working like a horse over the last few months to get in shape and lose some much needed pounds. I have tried a lot of things, but most of my success has been from learning how to eat right. So far I am down 25lbs from learning about what food works best with my body while doing the Whole30! Whoop whoop!
While exciting I've hit a wall with the loss so I have turned to some of my friends for help.
My friend Nancy is a Beachbody coach and so I started a fitness plan at home. It's been really fun and much easier than trying to find time to go to the gym. Plus Nancy is a super smart Nurse Practitioner and having her on my side helps with staying accountable. Oh and I really like that Shaun T guy. He is teaching me how to be a hip hop dancer, I'm pretty sure Beyonce will be calling soon.
My friend Tiffany is involved in a nutritional program, so I am trying out a 9 day cleanse. The nutritional shakes are delicious and on those days life is good. Then there are what they call "cleanse days" which is what I am in the thick of today. That means for 2 days I drink a mix all day and have very little food (for example...one apple....all day) It's been Ok. You know when you are starting to get a little hungry about 20-30 minutes before you go and eat and you think, "yep, getting hungry...need to think about getting some food soon" that's how I have felt all day. The drinks tide you over a little and the bite of food here and there do as well, but still...........mama could eat!
They say, keep busy so I am, so far I have gone to the farmers market to prepare for Monday when I can eat again. I have sorted and folded all the laundry. I have switched over my blog because with Weebly I can make it pretty and have more control over the look and feel of the page. Next I think my kiddo and I are going for a walk, hopefully that doesn't make me too hungry!
I think it's about time for my apple slice - Until next time!
