I’m here with my update for Blogger’s Biggest Loser, AND the Ten Pound Challenge.
First of all, I would like to say that I have officially lost 5 pounds! Actually a little more than that. I was at about 5 pounds lost before my surgery, and I’m now about half a pound lighter than I was then. Which I find amazing considering the fact that I still haven’t really been able to work out (I found out that jogging causes me some serious pain still).
As far as diet goes, I haven’t been snacking as much, which I suppose is a good thing, since I can’t seem to make myself snack on good things, like fruit. And I just started a new shake product called ViSalus.
Basically, you choose your program thing (I chose the basic, cheapest option so I can try it out without shelling out lots of money for it). It comes with a bag of this shake powder (sweet cream flavored) and some flavor packet/nutrition boosters. I always worry about these powdery shake drinks because sometimes, if I’m being honest, they’re nasty. We all know it. But this was pretty good. I had my first one this morning and I used the banana energy flavor thing, and a spoonful of peanut butter. It was pretty dang good. And you can add pretty much anything you want… yogurt, fruit, whatever. Or change up the type of milk you use. I used just not fat milk since that was what I had in the fridge, but a lot of people use almond milk or soy milk. I’m gonna hafta get creative.
So anyways, that is where I am at right now. I can start swimming again this week, so I’m hoping to get back into my workout routine.
My goals for the next week are:
Continue cooking healthy dinners for Chad and I every night
Get my badonka-donk in the gym 4 times a week
Replace one meal a day with my ViSalus shake
Lose 2 more pounds
Me thinks that’s reasonable.
