My Therapist Says, "Off With Your Meds!"

Tuesday, January 31, 2012

Good Morning! How is everyone?

I'm been feeling pretty great. I went to therapy yesterday and my therapist thinks well enough to officially stop taking my meds after weaning off this week. I'm so excited!!!! She thinks I have made a lot of progress since May, I'm really proud of myself. Conquering body issues and such is a hard process. I know I'm not cured but I have the tools now to help me everyday!

Yesterday was my first day on Herbalife. Interesting.

Pros:
Shakes are easy and quick
Shakes are good (I have dutch chocolate and cookies and cream flavors with vanilla and chocolate protein mix)
I put spinach on my sandwich for the first time, pretty tasty

Cons:
I don't full completely full, but I'm not jittery or shaky
Washing out blender twice a day is annoying


So, I had cookies and cream shake for breakfast with milk
1 oz nuts for snack
ham, cheese, spinach on whole wheat bread and 1 dark chocolate square (I forgot my carrots at home---grrr)
1 oz cheese and 6 triscuts for snack and green tea
1 dutch chocolate and blueberry shake with milk

I walked the dogs last night with my husband and rested the rest of the night.

So, that's it! Hope everyone is doing well! I have a mile run planned for tomorrow after work and cleaning our house. I should get some well deserved fitness points in!

Oh and I'm getting excited for my Rock and Roll DC Half in March! I got a little booklet in the mail yesterday about all the places to go in DC and my new Runner's World! Whoo-hoo!

Thanks for reading and the support!
*Jen

    Good job on your first day of Herbalife. Didn't know you were running a half!! I need to find one for March/April. Can't wait to see how you do.

    Sorry, I just got a notice in today's email that there is a NEW ride in NM on 3/17...
(I was seriously considering that Capitol half)

Great news about D/C 'ing meds! But I washed out quickly on the daily labor of washing the blender when I was doing the protein-shake routine. I bought a couple of Blender Bottles which are easier to clean, but can't crush ice & give you that nice frosty texture :-(

    I am so happy for you as you have worked hard on getting better. The funny thing is you go off and I will be going back on The Meds tomorrow. After a VERY stressful year my anxiety issues are out of control again. The good news is we have meds that will help us out.
