Month two results

Tuesday, August 07, 2012

I've been gaining and losing the same two-three pounds for the last month. I know exactly why--I have discovered two frozen vegan foods that I really like, but need to eat in moderation (or learn to cook myself!): Kashi's Mayan Harvest Bake and TaDah's falafel lemony hummus wrap. Also, I've been eating homemade trail mix--tasty, but high in calories. And since I can't do cardio right now (I haven't been able to find time in my schedule to go to the doctor to have her sign off on my gym app, which is through a hospital--so no swimming just yet), I haven't been exercising at all. I'm finishing up two summer classes for my professional certification, and I'm starting a second job this afternoon, so I've had a lot going on. At any rate, the same two-three pounds...too many carbs. I know this. I've always eaten a lot of carbs.

However, I have lost another three inches in the last month! That's a total of 9 1/2 inches since June 9. I will take it. Watch out when I'm finally cleared for my usual low-impact cardio (Leslie Sansone DVDs, walking, Zumba)...I'm hoping the weight will start falling off! :P Until then, working hard to get more whole foods and fewer processed foods into my mouth. Still tweaking my eating plan; I have a copy of the Engine 2 diet on the way. It's a lot of what I'm doing now, except no oils...not sure I can go that strict, but I'm interested in learning more about it. There are a lot of recipes I want to try...need to spend Sunday cooking and freezing food in portion sizes so I can pop one in the microwave for a quick meal, since I'm not going to have a lot of time between job #1 and job #2 to cook.

I am feeling better overall, even lugging Frankenfoot around. :) I did try to stop taking the probiotic and my stomach pain came back, so I started up again. I'll ask my doctor next month which bugs she wants me to ingest (well, okay, bacteria), then I'll find a comparable one at Earth Fare. (Align has milk protein in it.) My gait is all messed up, so my hips and back are a bit sore, but greatly reduced since I stopped the dairy.

I'm looking forward to my bloodwork next month! That will be some tangible progress I can show my doctor...even more than the 10 pounds I've lost so far.

    Kudos on the inches lost. BOO on not being able to go to the gym yet. Hope "Frankenfoot" is feeling better!
