I started the shakology shakes yesterday for lunch. I learned a few things. They are very filling. With just 8oz of milk mixed with the power, I couldn't finish it. It completely got rid of my afternoon munchies. Yippee! It isn't the yummiest thing I have ever tried but if it helps me shed a few pounds, I can deal with it.
What else did I learn? Making drastic changes in my diet makes my tummy upset
Not feeling so goodttoday. The good news is that itiisn't an allergic reaction. That would have happened right when I drank the shake. This is just my body protesting a healthier diet. It will ttake a few days to adjust.
Hopefully, I will start losing weight now. It is hard to do over 40. My hormone levels are a mess and my metabolism sucks. One step at a time. I can do it.
I was supposed to start a new cycle of p90x this week but I can't do it sick. Not with the flu, that is for sure. I'll see how next week goes. It is probably a good thing to start the diet one week and the exercise program the next any way. I don't want to add to many new things at once.
Dragon is being very supportiv . Surprised me! He is normally against any weight loss efforts. But he said that my weight is affecting me mentally now and that isn't good. I have to listen to him and know what the consequences are for not.
I think he is more comfortable with this knowing that he is HOH and can put a stop to it at any point.
Right now I am using a sample pack of shakology to allergy test it and see which flavor is best. I tried the chocolate yesterday. Since chocolate drinks are not my favorite, it is no surprise that I didn't care for it. Today I am going to try the vanilla. If it works out, that is the flavor I am going to order. I can do lots of yummy things with a vanilla shake.
Sometimes I am very happy we have a dd life style. It gives us both confidence. We both know Anna will not get out of control. He will be there the entire time, making sure I keep it healthy.
