Booyah! This is more like it! Ok, what did I do differently this week?
That is the major thing that I changed and that might have made a significant impact. I started walking for about 25-30 minutes on the treadmill 4 times this past week. It wasn’t crazy power walking, just walking at a fast pace. I don’t run though, never have been able to, even when I was younger.
Eating is repulsive
No joke. I’m finding that just to eat or think about eating makes me want to cringe. I no longer look forward to it nor make it the center of my existence. Hence, eating out is happening less and less and if I do eat out I spend close to nothing because I’m not getting full meals with dessert. I would say at best, I get a side salad and soup! Sometimes, maybe a grilled chicken and steamed veggies.
Just a few days ago, I was having trouble finishing even half of a Farmer Boy’s Chicken Cobb Salad (my favorite salad).
I think I was about 5 bites into it when suddenly it looked so un-appetizing. I couldn’t think about finishing it. I put it away and saved the rest of it for later in the day. It ended up being my dinner.
A few days ago, I was done early with my errands I needed to run on my lunch and just couldn’t decide what I wanted for lunch. The thought of even getting a Protein Burger at In N Out was making me gag. So I pulled into the Jamba Juice and got me a Pomegranate Smoothie with Pomegranate, Strawberries and Blueberries.
It was perfect and it was like CANDY to me! I guess my lunches now are Jamba Juice.
Last night for dinner I had about 5 saltine crackers and the meat from The Boy’s Supreme Croissant Breakfast sandwich that he didn’t finish. Oh and about 4 bottles of water.
It’s the appetite suppressants that I mentioned a few weeks ago, Phentermine. They have literally given me such an aversion to food. Other “side effects” I’m seeing are dry mouth and being very thirsty. I did have trouble sleeping a few weeks ago to but that has passed. I’ve always been one to drink water a lot even before starting this so I’m used to drinking water and the many visits to the bathroom that drinking lots of water creates.
Oh and I’m hearing that Man of Steel is pretty good. I’m excited about that movie!
Anyway, so what were today’s results??
