R3 P1 Load Day 2

August 15, 2010

Load day 2.  On a negative note – I still hate load days.  They’re gross.  Today I’ve had one massive mexican lunch, and that’s it.  Taco, chalupa, enchilada, rice, beans, chips, salsa, queso.  Can I say *BLECH* Nothing for breakfast and so far nothing for dinner.  I swear I don’t think I can’t eat anything else and am considering a third load day because that’s all I’ve had  (which does not excite me terribly don’t you know).  I’m burping and I’m farting.  Which is the ONLY cool part about load days.  HEH!!  Farting rocks.  At least when you can do it with abandon and then laugh gleefully 😀

On a more retrospective note – I’ve been doing some reminiscing tonight – reading through my blog – reexperiencing the feelings that I had.  What’s notable is that I can read any one entry regarding the food I ate, and almost instantly relate it to the (many) emotions I felt that day.  How strange is that???   Reading my entries brought it all back like I was reliving it.  I was like – YES! Go girl!  You did the right thing and made the right decision!  I’ve loved reading through my blog tonight – it reminded me of alot of little details that I haven’t thought of in a long, long time.

Like:  You are the master of your universe!!!

I have to say, I just find it quite interesting that I’m able to relate the small details that I would of otherwise forgotten to my food choices.  What’s up with that my peeps???  I’m a very food focused girl, whether I’m eating healthy, or un-healthy, or anyway in between.  I’m making the choice. 

Somewhere, over the rainbow,  dreams come true.  I would like to find a way to condense this passion for food into some kind of business (please God outside of IT), at some point in my life.  I find it far more exciting than rebooting a server or discussing disaster recovery.  Let’s talk about FOOD!  Even healthy food. 

Hugs and love xxxoo


R3 P1 Load Day 1

August 14, 2010

R3 will (re)commence today.  Load days Saturday and Sunday.  I either need to go ahead and just start this weekend, or delay R3 by at least a month.  And this R3 will only be a short round.  All of this is being influenced by a trip scheduled in mid-September to go with KO to St. Louis.  I’ll be meeting his parents and his sister.  And then I’m going to the Texas State Fair in October – YEEE HAWWW!!  And then comes Thanksgiving.  All in all, doing a three week round now is the right thing to do. 

So for load day 1 I’m sitting here eating two hot dogs for breakfast LOL.  Mostly because they need to be consumed but also because I love me some Hebrew National hot dogs.

Many blessing to you and yours! xoxo

R3 P1 Load Day 2

July 18, 2010

Didn’t weigh myself this morning; I’ll just update with my post-load weight tomorrow.  I have felt this P1 like I have on every P1 – slightly ill and bloated.  I also haven’t forced myself to eat as much this P1 – just couldn’t do it.  I have, however, had plenty to eat (I think).  We’ll see how I do in the next few days when VLCD starts.

Yesterday I had:  scrambled eggs with ham and cheese for breakfast.  A piece of red velvet cake.  1/2 a sandwich for lunch.  Steak, sweet potato, asparagus, and salad for dinner.  Today I had:  Migas with refried beans and hash browns for breakfast.  Cheese and crackers and some cold steak for lunch.  Enchiladas, refried beans, guacamole, chips and homemade salsa for dinner (hot tamale was it good).  At the moment I feel like hurling, don’t you know.  Prior P1’s I ate alot more, but I did what I could this round.

So – the HUCOG I got this time is the liquid form (predissolved).  I like it!  It made mixing easier as there is one less step.  And it’s obviously effective because I just do not want to eat.  That’s a good thing!

Today I’m sending positive thoughts into the universe.  We all deserve peace and love in our lives, and that’s where my thoughts are focusing.

Hugs! xoxo

R3 P1 – Load Day 1

July 17, 2010

Today’s Weight: 160
Today’s change: n/a
Total R3 weight lost: n/a

Happy Round 3 to me!  I’ve decided to go ahead and start.  Getting through the week while my oldest son is here will not be the most challenging thing I’ve done on my rounds.  If I can get through Thanksgiving (and 18 pies) – I can handle the week.  I don’t want to delay any more, I just want to get on with it.

I made my Costco trip yesterday and got organic chicken tenderloins, scallops, spinach, tomatoes, and even the dreaded cucumbers.  And apples.  So that will get me started.  This morning I’ll mix my first batch of HCG (HUCOG) and do my first injection.  For loading I’m going to focus on high fat, high protein, and for the most part I’ll stay away from sugar and carbs.  For the most part.  I did buy a red velvet cake at Costco 😉

One thing I’m going to experiment with this round is Miracle Noodles – I’ve had these before and liked them – they are practically zero calorie/zero carb noodles and they are filling.  I ordered some last night, so we’ll see how I do on them!

Date night tonight, yay!  I’m looking forward to it, to say the least.

Many blessings to you and yours on this fine Saturday! xoxo
