Challenge Update Day 4
This week has been amazing! I have been able to walk everyday at lunch!! Monday & Tuesday I walked 1.2 miles and Today I walked 1.8!! (Now that is in work shoes not tennis shoes!) Yes this journey to lose 100 pounds in 12 weeks has to be done one step at a time.
I have been asked many times what is my diet, what am I eating to cause the weight to come off.
First I need everyone to know that my diet (the foods I can eat) has to be GLUTEN FREE!! I have Celiacs Disease so I cannot eat Wheat, Oats, Rye, or Barley. This is not because of Niutriiveda it is because I have the Gluten Allergy!! (Oh yes, I still love eating Rice and Potatoes) Second, It has been 110 degree here in Phoenix. So the thought of eating a lot of heavy and hot foods doesn't sound good to anyone here right now.
A few things about me to know, I am a PICKY eater, I also hate to eat! (It is part of the reason I am Obese. Because I don't eat my body goes into survival mode and hold
So Here is what I am eating and what I am doing to achieve my weight goal.
For Breakfast on the way to work I have a Nutriiveda Shake (Mixed Berry!! SO Yummy!) That is 1/2 cup of mixed berries, 8 oz of water, and 2 scoops of Vanilla Nutriiveda. I blend it in the blender and take it on the road. (as we all know, I normally wouldn't eat breakfast before, but when I did I loved a protein shake. The problem is that the protein I was using had Gluten in it. Yep I would be sick by lunch. I don't have that problem with Nutriiveda it is Gluten FREE!!)
The am snack is - I have been eating a "sandwich" 3-5 oz of Deli Meat with Green Leaf Lettuce. So good. (Thank You Boar's Head for being Gluten Free, But please bring down your price!!)
For lunch after my walk I have a Nutriiveda Shake (this is a new mix, It taste great LOOKS awful.) It is 3 oz of Zrii, 12 oz of water, and 2 scoops of Vanilla Nutriiveda. I shake it in the water bottle. I like it a little thin after the walk, because I am so hot. I have found that I feel amazing and ready to go back to work in about 15 minutes.
The pm snack is - 3 celery stalks and a 1/2 cucumber. Mainly because I want something to keep me cool.
For Dinner- I have been eating Pork Ribs every night. I love them. I eat about 3. Yummy.
I was asked how much water do I drink a day? The answer is not enough!! I should drink about 141 oz of water a day. (yep half your body weight, it is suppose to be more if you live in a warm climate or are trying to lose weight) That is over 17 cups of water. It is a good thing I like to drink 20 oz water bottles, only 7 of them a day!
I am so blessed to have great friends who will talk to me while I walk, send me a text message to encourage me, and if it wasn't for all my Facebook friends who ask me how I am doing with the weight loss, I might have given up.
NEVER GIVE UP and NEVER QUIT!!
I believe that I have been blessed with the ability to transform my life both physically, mentally, and financially with Nutriiveda.
