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.

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

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!

    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.
