Getting Back on Track

Monday, January 27, 2014

I tried this smoothie/cleanse program for 5 days out of 10 and couldn't understand why I wasn't losing a single pound. My weight would go up between 1-2 lbs and then down the same. I took a look at the ingredients in the smoothie. OMG the amount of sugar granted it came from the fruit and was natural sugar but still and then the carb grams were unreal 33 gms or higher. So no more of that. On Sunday I went back to Medifast (MF) been off for about 2 weeks. I had a MF blueberry muffin, a MF choc mint crunch bar, MF cinnamon pretzels, and a Choc Chip Soft Bake shake following the every 2 hour rule. I had one 8 oz glass smoothie for my 3-5 fruit and vegetable serving for the day. I had a salad and a couple slices of turkey breast for my lean and green. I slipped up when my husband orderd pizza and I had a couple of slices. Overall though I think I did pretty good for my first Restart Day. Oh I took all my vitamins. Definitely room for improvement. I did drink six 8 oz glasses. My goal for today is eight 8oz glasses and a 100% on track day. I have a workout for 6 pm today. Yay

    I'm trying to steer clear of refined sugar myself. I watched this video on probiotics and so I'm looking into that. Way to go on mixing things up! Pizza is also my weakness and I've been trying to think of something to cook and freeze ahead of time so I can pop that in the oven whenever pizza ends up in my house, ha ha! Wishing you a fabulous week ahead!

    I'm sorry the smoothie idea didn't work so well. Just last week I was tossing around that same idea, so I'm glad I hear the outcome isn't so great. Let me know how going back to Medifast is going for you. I think I may need to do the same thing. I'm headed in the wrong direction here. I can't remember, do you go to a center to weigh in?

    I'm struggling with being able to do this on my own. It's what I really, really want, but I can't seem to do it on my own. Which makes me question whether I'll have to be part of a program for the rest of my life. It's frustrating.

    I wish you lots of success!! You've done so well! You're an inspiration!
