Day 98 of my VLCD Journey
Thursday, April 07, 2016
Wow it has been a while since I have blogged. I have missed it so much!!! I have missed spark so much. I have been logging on my cell but I can't see my teams on the app. Work is crazy just like I knew it would be. I am doing a lot of juggling right now and trying to find a balance. Gym, Work, Food prep, Spark, and the start of a new relationship with Anthony. Things are going really well in life and I am happy. In fact I can't remember the last time I have been this happy.
My transition to real food is going well. I am now eating real protein, chicken breasts, ground turkey, pork chops, and lean beef. Non starchy vegetable-green bean, carrots, celery, onions, and I am trying some new ones. I have been on dairy for almost a week, so string cheese, and cottage cheese have been my go to because of the easiness of it with my schedule. Tomorrow I start to introduce fruit!! I am excited about that!! I met with my nutritionist on Tuesday and I am progressing well. We also talked about going back to the VLCD once work settles down. I need to think about it and I am going to see how well I do on the LCD now once I have fully transitioned. It is a decision I will make with my doctor and my nutritionist. Food prep is going really well. I make sure I set an hour to an hour and a half a week for food prep. I cook up all my food and measure and weigh into my portions and then I put in containers so i can just grab and go!
Work is crazy. Prom and wedding season is here, and my days are getting longer and longer at work. But with my hard came a promotion. I was promoted to Senior Manager. So not only will I manage my location but I will be training 3 other stores, and implementing a new training program we are launching this summer. I am so excited for this opportunity to learn new skills and help others grow in this business!
So my date a while back went really well. We have decided to take the next step and we are exclusive to each other. He is a great guy and we have a lot of fun. I am excited to see where this goes!!! Another new journey!
My work outs have been really good lately. I am mixing up my cardio and strength training and I completed my first virtual 5k this past Sunday. It wasn't a great time but I take into affect i was on a treadmill and it was the first one. I now have a time to beat, and I know the more weight that comes off the faster I will be!! I am hoping to do at least one a month!!!
Well I better get back to work! I hope everyone has an awesome day!!!!
