I have been sick with a bad cold since last Monday. I had taken the day off to get caught up in stuff I had let go in favour of using my time for getting the condo ready for selling but it appears that that day, my body decided to get sick. So it started then, and I did go to work Tuesday knowing I was in for it. I had an meeting at 2pm at my condo with Tarion and the builder as I’m on the Board and I felt myself going down health wise quickly.
And I have been off work since. Well I did go in Monday for an hour but couldn’t hack it (no pun intended) and yesterday for half a day and was told I need to work from home today. Which I did, but only for half of the day as I could not sleep during the night and instead slept until just after noon.
In condo news, I lowered my price to $283,000 on Tuesday as we only had 2 showings last week. I had a showing tonight and the young man seemed enthused about the place. I just need an offer…I am so ready to be in a house with a yard for the boys :)
I’m in one of those moods where quiet is good. I go to work, do my thing and then come home and enjoy the pups and make a few hats here and there for orders. Nice and quiet.
Tomorrow I have the day off to go to the Creativ Festival and I’m excited, especially since I decided last week to add handmade cards to my Etsy store – like this one:
I restarted Round 2 of the hCG protocol on Saturday with the two days of loading (can you say OINK?) and now am on day four of VLCD. I find it harder this round as I’m comfortable at my current weight though still overweight. Ah well – I’m sure I will get back my weightloss mojo when I start seeing the numbers drop :)
So TOM is here, I’m miserable and realizing why I had originally set it up to start round 2 this coming weekend (AFTER TOM). So I’m going on a mini-break until Monday. I will gather my bearings (save my drops!) and do a mini-load this weekend.
NSV – one of my many bosses came to me yesterday and said I was melting away in front of him and that I looked great :)
I tried so hard on the last few days in Round 1 of VLCD to hit onederland but the closest I got was 200.2lbs which was also my LDW for that round.
This morning I hit 199.7lbs so I have entered â€˜virgin fatâ€™ territory and ONEDERLAND :) I weighed twice this morning as I couldnâ€™t believe the number the first time since it was so elusive back in round 1, lol.
I have to go grocery shopping after work – need food, all out of protein and need some fresh veggies.
I will say that this protocol has helped me enjoy non-processed foods all the more and when I veer off plan (Iâ€™m definitely not perfect) it makes me want to go back to clean eating since I feel so much betterâ€¦mentally and physically. When I used to diet (weight watchers, counting calories etc) I still ate a lot of processed foods. While I do lose on these diets, it never made me crave fresh fruit/veggies and a baked chicken breast. I just ate my Lean Cuisineâ€™s, low fat pudding cups, etc. Now? Give me fresh :)
Today for lunch: chicken and brussel sprouts – yum!
I so, wanted to see 199.9 on the scale this morning. After seeing 200.2lbs yesterday I thought I would but nope. And..today is my last drop day which means this is the weight to use for maintenance :/
But on a happy note, I have lost 27lbs of fat since January 9th and I feel healthier and so much better about myself.
I calculated when my next round will begin: April 28. So for now the goal is to teach my body to maintain my current weight, I can do this.
