I woke up this morning before my alarm. It makes sense, as I was in bed asleep shortly after 7:30 last night. I enjoyed 11 solid hours of sleep without the help of Nyquil. I slept free style last night.
Sprung out of bed and took my vitamin stack, a multi vitamin, garlic & oil of oregano, beta keratin, vitamin c, and an immune probiotic. You have to eat after taking oil of oregano, otherwise you burb up that flavor all day!
I made enough shake for two, I brought some to work for my coworker. Pineapple tidbits, packed in juice, lemon Greek yogurt, Goji berries, 1 tsp each chia seeds flax seeds and hemp hearts, a splash of almond milk and a few ice cubes. The result a whole grain, antioxidant and omega, vitamin C & A packed shake. Delicious! After a hot shower (same as a regular shower, but with ME in it…hahaha) I managed to clear my sinuses and run a saline netipot through. Whoo hooo.
Of course thru the day, the pressure is back and I have a nasty sinus headache, but it was better for a while!! The upside of being sick, this fever… I read somewhere you burn more calories when you are hot? Is that right? I’m going with it.
I feel thinner, not a lot, but pants fit a little looser. Obviously being sick I haven’t been dedicated to exercise. And I’m still not counting calories. I hate the idea of it, so I will resist until it becomes necessary, then I will re-evaluate. Not sure why I hate the idea of it so much, I think because I am afraid it would become very rigid for me. I would be likely to take it too far! (Psycho….)
Body By Vi is a 90-day program, but I have set a 7-month goal for the 50 lbs. I want to be realistic, and with any weight loss program, if it doesn’t become a lifestyle change you will end up right back where you started.
I have a dentist appointment in an hour. I’m having my new tooth installed (crown on a tooth I broke a month ago), Dental work is so expensive, I’m thinking of it as an investment in myself, although the thought of spending a week on a beach somewhere instead of buying a new tooth had crossed my mind. I mean… It’s a back tooth…do I really need all of them?? Yes, I do. I should have all my teeth, for now. Another thing I may re-evaluate. Maybe the hot lab partner I find will have dental benefits including major restorative. I know, I’m a hopeless romantic…
