A Very Happy Tuesday to you all!
Well folks , Yesterday was one of my best days in a very long time. Not only am I trying to lose weight , but now I had this added in mystery illness where no one can diagnose me. There is no possible way that losing weight and working out can harm me in any way , so I am diving back in , no matter if I am sore or not. Honestly , I am always sore, there is a baseline level of soreness, some days it flares up. I am making changes to try and see if any of it works to help me feel better.
One thing I have tried is Plexus, not for the weight loss aspect, but for the blood sugar level out and the help with inflammation . And, I gotta tell you , for those aspects, its definitely working . My only issue is that you need to drink tons of water when taking it and I am doing that , but I feel like I am retaining water. So, I am going to check with the doctor when I see him this week.
Now, it is no secret that healthy eating and I have never been good friends, but I am taking a different approach. I am attempting to cut out Soda, Bread, and Pasta. That last one is going to be a killer. I loves my pasta.
Day 1 of this plan, I think it went very well. My biggest victory was lunch, I got a burrito bowl from Qdoba. I got rice, chicken, cheese, a splash of queso and GUACAMOLE! Yes, guacamole. This was a very large step for me. I know to most, you are probably thinking ” Is this chick all right?” but this was big for me.
So much so , I took a pic
Next up on my healthy quest was snacking. I wanted to find something I could snack on and not eat crap. So, I went with almonds. But, I found, salted caramel almonds! And Sweet Baby, are those suckers delish! I took a pic of those too!
The salted caramel is not a thick caramel all over them, it is more like a salted caramel sugar, I don’t know , but it is yummo ! And only 4 carbs for 28 pcs! Winner Winner !
Now for the best part of the day :
