Well, we are up early. Got up at 6:15 or so. Wanted to workout and have breakfast before my bath for service. We have to leave in about an hour and it takes me that long to get ready. LOL I am drinking my after breakfast tea while I catch up on my logging and blog.
We went to a movie yesterday and took our own snacks. A bottle of tea and some pretzels and a skinny cow candy bar. 400 calories total. I counted it as a meal and didn't do any damage to my calorie count. Yeah!
I read an article about how coconut oil can help energize your thyroid so I am trying it. I started with my dinner last night. I am going to add one to my vitamans each meal and then wait a week, then start taking two with each meal. I hope it solves the problem I am having with my weight loss. I have been working out EVERY morning for a month and logging 99% of my food, but still not seeing the loss I would expect. I had a thyroid test about a year and 1/2 ago and the doc said it wasn't quite normal. I am glad I read the article so I could try the coconut oil. I'd rather not take meds if I dont have too. We are going to give it a little time to work before re-testing. Since your thyroid controls metabolism, it could be the reason I am having so much trouble seeing any good losses. It has taken me since September, 2011 just to lose 25 pounds. (Granted, I had a few setbacks with the fall last winter, and the flu in January and February) I hope I start seeing more progress.
Well, I have gotta go and get ready for service. I hope everyone has a productive day and a happy one. Love to all...Joyce
