On to Phase 3
Thursday, February 07, 2013
Hooray for clothes getting noticeably larger!! I am looking forward to wearing my smaller clothes and donating the larger ones!!
My weight isn't changing, but while I would like to see the scale numbers drop, I am not concerned. I am replacing fat with muscle. The quality of my workouts is improving. And, I just completed the hormone test. I should have some more answers next week!
My eating has been good. Not as rigidly clean in terms of nutrition as previous weeks, but still within 1200-1500 cals. And, my snacks aren't outrageous. It's just that I might pick an english muffin with peanut butter twice a day over an english muffin with peanut butter for one snack and then cottage cheese with some fruit later.
Our fiscal year at work just ended, and the new year is ramping up quick. I am finding that as I get busy, I tend to get in a rut with my food. I need to commit to trying new recipes at least once or twice a week so that I don't find myself getting bored with my eating choices and then fighting the urge to choose other snacks that are far more appealing. :)
I am now into Phase 3 of my program with Doc Sage. The icky drinks are gone. The not-so-icky-drink will continue for 4 weeks total (this is week one of those four). It's basically a protein shake with some extra anti-inflammatories. Not great. Not horrible. And, by 7 a.m., it's over for the day. There is no doubt that the program, the supplements and the nutrition are the biggest keys to changing the quality of my overall health. That keeps me motivated to keep going.
