In order to lose the weight, I decided to go with a highly rated nutritional system I’ve heard about over the years. I did a lot of research, checked out various websites, sampled products, and even got to speak to some of the nutritionists and doctors behind the products. Yeah….I’m serious about getting rid of this weight and replacing it with energy, muscle, and a new wardrobe.
One of the first things I did was go through the cupboards and get rid of the salty snacks, frozen pizza, ice cream, and my beloved seasoned pumpkin seeds which had become my evening addiction. I left the cookie jar alone because, as my husband warned, that could be cause for divorce. No worries, we'll just have to take time to make healthier home-made options for him.
Now, throughout the day, I have 2 very yummy shakes (French Vanilla in the morning and Orange Cream, Chocolate or Strawberry later - sometimes I add extra fruit) I also eat a healthy balanced meal of lean protein, complex carbs, healthy fats, and fiber. Luckily I love my veggies! I can also have light snacks and, hallelujah, they even have scrumptious chocolate treats. Oh, if I could only work bacon in there.
Water is my favourite drink, so that’s good because I need to drink a truck load of it each day! So much that I slosh when I walk and had to move my office desk closer to the bathroom. Speaking of water, wish me luck, I’m about to squeeze into my bathing suit and head to the public swimming pool!
