Back on track…๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ’ƒ

Happy Valentines day good people.

This has been a long way coming but am back on track. Hasn’t been easy but this whole journey is determination. I had to figure out many things in my head first.

I am so thankful for Jacque who has literally held my hand. She is a big inspiration and she keeps giving me different ways of not getting bored and yet achieve my goals. She checks on me frequently to ensure am good and not messing up. Because she has walked this journey herself, she has experienced almost all the challenges I encounter and helps prepare me.

I am so thankful that my colleagues too have joined this journey. It is now a team ‘thing’. Their’s may not be exactly like mine but it is a journey. The team meals have changed – thou I mostly carry mine from home. The attitude towards health living has changed. One of my colleagues started last year with me but because he was consistent he has lost half his weight and looks like a totally different person. He looks so good. He works out a lot and is consistent with his diet. His been an inspiration too.

Wait for it…….wait for it……. The last time I checked I had lost 1.5kgs, end of this week I hope I will have lost more. I didn’t take my inches, will do next week Monday. This is a very good result and am happy.

Am back!!!!๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ’ƒ

Thank you for following my journey.

Not a good week!!! โ˜น๏ธโ˜น๏ธโ˜น๏ธโ˜น๏ธ

Last week sucked. All I did wasn’t good enough. The scale didn’t move an inch. No inches lost – I actually gained. That is a lot of catching up to do.

I modified my meal plans and it backfired on me big time. I stuck to it and yet it was crap. It was so easy to follow but yeah nothing comes easy. Dangers of listening to everybody’s advice. I stopped that new plan and went back to the old. I was fixing something that wasn’t broken.

The scale was super annoying, am going to sulk a little bit today. I feel like I need too. Am not even in my writing mood….โ˜น๏ธโ˜น๏ธโ˜น๏ธ

Tomorrow is another day, life goes on, the hassle is real!

January struggles

Once again happy new year friends.

It’s been a while since I last posted. It has been a roll coaster with so many Jan deadlines, leave, travel, company retreat, health issues and a close friend wedding that I was honored to be the maid of honor. It was hectic!!! In short, I had too many very good excuses to fall off the wagon which has been very disappointing to my gals that have been cheering on from day one.

Some friends have called me to ask if I run out of data because of Jan ‘kayassi’. While that was funny, it was very far from the truth. I just kept pilling up excuses that made me comfortable to not follow a strict routine, had fantastic excuses to sleep alot and not work out and eat any how.

This is it!!– Am done with the excuses. They just can never end. Rain or thunder, hectic schedule or not they will find a way to co-exist. 10th March is my new short term goal – 15inches and 10kgs under. Watch me.

Fully back on track this week starting 29th Jan. I have prepared mentally and prepared my meal plans for the week. Am stalking my motivator this whole week so she can handhold me. She is a source of motivation for me because she has been thru the same journey. My eyes to the prize with God as my guide.

See you next week Monday with my weigh in results.

Thank you for following my journey.

My Journey

Happy New Year Good people

I have not posted in a while. I have been unwell for a while. I like to write about my story and I need to always find the right time, right state of mind and right mood to write. Thats when my thoughts flow.

This period came with all sorts of challenges and illnesses but I believe that is behind me now. Definitely affected my program but not in a big way. With 13tablets a day, 30mls of syrups and constantly inhaling, I put my dear green juice on a back burner for a while. With the bitterness in my mouth and zero appetite definitely couldn’t think green.

I have been easing into my journey and am glad am slowly picking up. Made changes here and there so I can stay focused. Am starting the green juice slowly to help me cleanse out all these drugs that I have taken over this period. It’s alot!!!!

I really appreciate all the friends that have continued to support me, constantly checking on me and keep pushing me to stay focused. I thank you and always grateful that you’re in my life. It makes this journey doable.

2018 is my year and I can’t wait to get back in line. Am excited about this year.

Happy New Year

Cheers!

Day 18, 19, 20 and 21

This update has delayed, I wasn’t well and definitely not able to concentrate and write. I do apologize for the delay.

Day 18 was ok as usual – nothing to talk about really. But on day 19 I got a terrible tummy bug and ooh buoy the pain was excruciating. I had to see a doctor who immediately started me on pain killers and antibiotics. I also got treatment for ulcers because I started the meds with no food then lost appetite completely and could hardly drink. After two days of ‘starving’ it was hard to tell whether the excruciating pain was tummy ulcers or the tummy bug so it was advisable to do both medications concurrently.

The advice from the doctor was to temporarily stop the program till my medication was done. Be able to eat normally if I could so I have enough to support my drug intake. He however encouraged me to resume immediately after meds coz all my vitals were way too good from the few days on the program.

It was kinda a blessing in disguise because I traveled to the village after the second day of treatment and got very good care with pure organic health meals. I also now didn’t have to explain to my mother inlaw why I couldn’t eat the food she prepared for me with luv.

I decided not to weigh in this Mon because I may have lost a little more weight than usual because of the ‘starving’ and too much running tummy I had. That is not healthy and I wouldn’t want to encourage it or mislead the good people following my story. I was tempted to step on the scale many times but my conscience couldn’t let. Starving and running tummy is not a healthy way to lose weight and I don’t want to promote it by posting my ‘very good’ results. I have given myself atleast 7days more before I weigh in. I believe I will have fully recovered then and put on a few pounds.

I resume my journey fully on Wednesday if am fine and can’t wait to enter the new year lighter and way healthier.

I wish you all a very Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year. Thank you for following my story.

Cheers!

Day 15, 16 and 17

Nothing much happened on these days. It was business as usual. Thou on day 16 I felt dizzy. I was kind of busy and not hungry so I didn’t eat. I just got a weird dizziness and ended up calling my consultant. She just said, drink a bottle of juice and take a nap. Once I did, I was back in my high spirits. The lesson I learnt from it was to time myself on my meal times so I don’t miss any. She said my body is going through ‘withdrawal symptoms’ and I need to feed timely.

Today was quite challenging thou. My daughter was ill and I have a wedding soon that I am a Maid of Honor. I had to take my kid to hospital then escort my bride shopping and make her priority. I started in the morning till 7:00pm. That meant I had one meal (500mls of green juice) thru the day. I tried to find some Juice without sugar in town in vain. Looked for some boiled veggies in vain. I was making sure I don’t make it about me and stress out my bride. Today was about her and I knew I could survive a couple of hours. By 7:00pm I was exhausted and weak. But once I reached home and had 1ltr of my very rich green juice, I was baaaaaaaaaack. Lesson learnt; if not sure of your day, stock up on juice in the tummy. Take like a ltr before leaving home. Lesson two; I need to know places in town that serve the kind of juices and the kind of meals that am having now.

Thank you for following my journey. This week is gone to me, am already looking forward to next week.

Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year

Cheers

Day 12 – 14

Gratitude๐Ÿ™

14days of nothing but clean eating / drinking is great. I have cheated here and there on all programs I have been on except this one. This is the first program that I have stuck too and I intend to stick too thru this journey. Don’t be deceived, it is hard!!! Takes will power to do a juicing diet. You must want change in your life desperately for you to do it.

I started my leave and I must say it is harder being home. I normally enjoy my leave and the days go so quickly. This one in particular the days are longer and am just finding ways to keep my self busy. Normally I would be hanging with my gals allover town but not this time. I need to finish my reboot.

Am looking for ways to keep changing my juice here and there. I find myself buying all the lemon in the market because that ‘lemony’ taste in the juice is making it bearable. I say bearable because for the program to work well half your juice must be green juice, then other veggies and 20% fruit. I hate the green thats why am saying ‘bearable’. I have told myself that it is temporary, and there is no gain without pain. I take it like medicine. It is easy for me to stop today but that would mean sacrificing my health freedom. Like the saying goes, what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. Am doing this.

I am enjoying lots of sleep. My ankles have lost the swelling I had. And am not using food as my pass time.

My hubby is joining the reboot and am excited about it. He thought I wouldn’t last a week and I have done two and going strong. Will be great to have his support. I have incorporated this kind of juice in my kids’ meals but with no green. I will be introducing the green in their juice very very carefully. I have replaced some of their snacks with juice and they love it. Lots of veggies in the juice and a little fruit to taste. It’s not the usual juice we do. I was very surprised that Kay of all people loved the juice.

Xmas is around the corner and to be honest am not bothered. To join the Xmas spirit am trying to figure out a special recipe for the day. Anybody that can help me with good recipes for green juice please do. The more the better.

I just can’t wait to get thru the month of Dec. I will celebrate Easter, this Xmas I will pass. For me this will represent my triumph over my food addiction.

I want to make a correction on my inches measurements last week. First of all I measured in centimeters and forgot to convert to inches and secondly even with my summation the formula didn’t pick up a figure that had been written as text thus giving an erroneous figure. My sincere apologies. The actual inches lost last week were 6.2inches. <<<<

And now…….Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls; the results for the 2nd week……..drum roll pleeeeeeeease;

Kgs lost 4kgs. Inches lost all together 3.4inches (around the waist, burst, thighs, legs arms etc). This brings my total loss to-date to 8.2kgs and 9.6inches. Thats winning bigly, am super happy. Best program ever.

Xmas week here I come. Am not scared of you. Am winning.

Merry Xmas to you all

Cheers
