Mid-Week Update

Thursday, May 09, 2013

I've had a much better week. It hasn't been perfect, but I've definitely made some positive changes. I've been going to bed right when I get home and I've been waking up earlier (on my own) and going to for a walk or run before work. For the most part I ate really healthy, but I still got into the patient snack pantry. My work week is finished so starting next week I'm going to bring in a Vegan protein/energy shake to kinda sip on all night. It is just so hard with the carb cravings at work! I have to have something!

Here's a pic of the new swimsuit I got from Victoria's Secret. It fits well! I'll take a pic of me in it the next time I go to the pool.

My plan for the rest of the week is to continue to eat right and keep active. They opened a new HEB close to my house and it is OUTSTANDING! (HEB is a grocery store, BTW). They have the most impressive sushi/sashimi counter I've ever seen at a grocery store. Here's what I'm having for lunch today! Fresh salmon poke

I'll give a weekend update! Thanks everyone for supporting me and encouraging me out of this funk I've been in!

    Keep up your water intake, and try almonds or walnuts to cut a craving. Take a probiotic supplement to be sure your gut is working for you and not against you. Love the suit, tres chic!

    That vegan shake sounds like a great idea...can't say the same for the raw fish! I prefer mine cooked. emoticon

    I think you're smart to bring something to satisfy those carb cravings. Sometimes they're just too hard to resist, and at least you're getting healthy calories.
I'm so happy for your good week! Keep up the hard work!

    Oh, I'm so glad you are back on track! I knew you would do it!

That swimsuit looks AMAZING! Congrats, that is so exciting.

Central Market is part of the HEB family, so I know how awesome that store must be. Another reason to get excited about a new menu again!

    See! You are well on your way to get back on track! Life happens and what's important not to give up and throw in the towel! You've come sooooo far; now this is the real test, to maintain! I think you will succeed! You have before and you will again! Stay positive, take it one day at a time and pray for self control (for work when those cravings kick in lol) go for a walk around the hospital or bring your own snacks from home...anything it takes to reach your goal!
