Day 44: Food Diary

At the beginning of this journey 44 days ago.  I was pretty good about tracking my food choices and then documenting them here.  However, after I felt confident about it I decided not to do that any more.  For a week or so after I stopped telling you all what I ate, I still tracked it on an online calorie counter.  However, now I haven't been doing that, and my weight isn't doing as good of a job of coming off.  I also can't remember what I ate.  So starting back today, I will be counting my calories.  With my new Polar Heart Rate Monitor watch too, I can input my calories burned, that way I can see what my actual burn is, instead of just guessing.  This will likely give me a better result.  The kind that I am looking for!  I won't bore you with the details of my food, but I will be documenting it on My Plate.  All of the successful weight loss programs recommend that I do document my foods so I will.

Ok, on to some other things.  My enzyme and Vemma intake.  I started taking both of these a few days ago.  I do have to say that the Enzyme has taken away any gassy problems I have had in the past.  It seemed to work immediately.  I am taking the TriEnza by Houston Enzymes.  The Vemma I think has stopped a cold in it's tracks!  I was starting to feel sick on Saturday, with a sore throat, then yesterday with my extreme fatigue.  I have remained faithful in my drinking of this yummy vitamin drink and today, while I don't feel perfect, I feel much better.  I have also been giving my kids the children's version called Next!  My friend Cheryl gave me some as a gift to try out.  My dad and I have been trying these juices out for about 3 years, including Glacier Milk, Mona Vie to name a few.  We were doing this to see if it could help with his cancer.  My dad's side of the family has a continuing relationship with different forms of cancer, so we were trying these out to see if they would help with health.  I am excited to try this out.  I am hoping my mom, dad and aunt will try it too.

Next topic.  Ok, so I got this email from a friend of mine, with some pictures of him starting in November and the last picture was of him a week or so ago.  The first picture was not the most flattering one, but with each picture he looked more and more fit!  This is in a little over 3 months.  Now, the dude has ABS and I can see them!  So when I talked to him on the phone, I asked if he did P90X.  He laughed, and asked if I was joking, I said "NO, I am going to start doing it in a few weeks when I am a little more fit".   He said, "Yes, I did do P90X, and don't wait until you are fit to start."  He said the last time he worked out prior to doing P90X was in high school and he is in his 30s too.  So, I talked with the Hubs and we are going to start P90X today!  I am nervous because it was SO hard the last time I tried, but what the heck.  I am 44 days into my new life, I have been much more active so here I go!  Wish me luck!

I wish you all the luck in the world and also God speed! {no pun intended!}. Also, so glad to hear about the Vemma helping you...it might just help your inflammation too, that's one of the things mangosteen does best! And, your friend! That is just way cool...turns out there are more outliers than we thought?
