This is the first week completed. I feel quite good if I’m honest. I’m not as tired as I used to be, which is a nice improvement. Somethings have been a little different for me, I’ve been peeing ALOT. I have also been really hungry on top of that.
Now this is strange for me because usually I never get hungry. When I was skipping meals I used to think I was fine because I wasn’t hungry. I know that is wrong, come on I was in denial, don’t say you’ve never had that moment of denial. Honesty is the best policy.
Since this juiceplus+ it has activated my appetite at healthy times, so now I’m having two meals a day plus a shake, and healthy snacks. Which is great, on other days when I’m particularly busier than others I’ll have two shakes and a meal with snacks. This is progress.
I’ve also been more willing to try new and different things. My favourite meal of the week, curry coriander rice noodles with brocoli, cauliflower, and mushrooms with quorn. I’m not a vegan by any stretch but quorn is a healthy source of protein. And it doesn’t taste as awful as some people make out, actually it is quite nice without the risk of those grizzly bits you get in chicken that snap in your mouth. (Aaah ew! I hate those…).
I need to work on drinking more water, I have been drinking roughly just under 2L of water a day, and since I exercise I should be drinking more. So my aim this week is to keep up with what I’m doing but bump up the water levels.
Obviously I am not going off weight or any form of measurement to make any educated assumptions on progress physically other than on how I feel, however I have noticed some clothes gaining space so I’ll take that as a sign.
One thing I am going to do now is bump up my exercise. With me starting a new diet I knew energy levels were going to spike, and drop throughout the week. However, now my body should be finding its feet I am going to add more exercises to my routine.
In the morning (even though it is getting rather frosty, and slippy) I will take my two beautiful babies, Bandit, and Luna. Two siberian huskies.
Luna is over weight, Bandit might start getting there. To help this weight loss program for them, running of a morning is going to be a thing. A regular thing. 3K to start off with.
ONE of the new shakes that I tried this week –
250ml unsweetened almond milk
1 full scoop of vanilla juiceplus+ powder
1 tsp of cocoa powder
1 tsp of spirulina powder
Mix it together with a good shake!
And it goes a funky green colour. To know how green the first picture on this post is the shake I was talking about. Don’t let the colour put you off, it was really nice! And so good for you!
