Tiger blood, it is here, and I hope it stays. I FEEL AMAZING! (Don't tell the gremlins, please.)
I'm managing well with Weight Watchers and Whole 30. I had my meeting this morning, which is always my favorite hour of the week. Even getting on the scale every week isn't a problem. It's not triggering any issues for me, and I've been very pleased with my progress. Sure, the numbers are cool, but the non-scale victories are really a big boost for me. I've been, piece by piece, shopping in my closet adding smaller clothes into rotation. I laughed the other day when Rob asked "where's your butt gone?" And the best thing of all, I'm back into my gorgeous wedding ring. It's probably been four years since my fat finger busted out of it, and it feels heavenly to be wearing it again.
I'm feeling alert and energetic. Like crazy energetic. My pain is down. My Achilles, my right knee, and low back were great at work yesterday. I only started having some low level pain toward the end of my shift. And it was pretty busy of a shift. I'm feeling so good that I picked up a shift tomorrow as a favor. I hope I don't regret it, because the gremlins know when you are doing a favor and no good deed ever goes unpunished. Any nurses reading this will understand. But turning energy into money is always a good thing.
I've dialed in the eating quite a bit, as far as making sure my plates look like the Whole 30 template for all three meals. It definitely keeps me full and satisfied, and all the vegetable and protein make it easy to stay within my points. I haven't really been snacky at all. I think this is a fantastic template, generally, and would do well to replace the food pyramid. Yeah, right, and monkeys might fly out of my butt! (Pardon the expression, I recently watched Wayne's World again for the billionth time.)
