Mid-Morning Snack? No thank you!

Hello all!

Sorry about my lack of posting (again).  It's amazing how much a husband can screw with your schedule.  

I've been keeping with my plan - as closely as possible.  Changes from the past week and weekend are as follows:
- No Hikes (due to my lovely boss switching my lunch time for this week.
- Missed Wednesday and Thursday physical activity completely (once due to laziness and the other time because the gym was CLOSED!)
- Did about 70 minutes of running on Tuesday - but then ate tacos.
- Didn't work out all weekend - but watched my caloric in-take carefully.

I'm getting back on the saddle this week.  Stay positive.  That's the best medicine for a little guilt.  Check out this little link ( to get you going on a new habit.  Follow this Buster Benson through the interwebs and you'll be motivated like no other.  Habit forming awesome-ness!  Super jazzed.  (I went so far as to send him a little nerdy love e-mail... AND HE WROTE BACK! Nothings better than that!) 

Today I've already had my Herbalife (still on a cookies and cream roll!).  The PDM has been helping me to skip my mid-morning snack.  I had to skip my lunch hike/jog again today.  Hopefully for the last time as Marty will be back and able to cover my normal lunch time again.  I went to Herbalife for lunch to pick up kitty litter and get a little product knowledge.  Had soup (140 calories of chicken noodle with added frozen peas!) at about 1:45 p.m.  Not hungry yet - but considering eating a few carrots to avoid being ravenous (my husband would claim it's closer to murderous...) when I get home.

Solid Week so far - New Enhancers!

It's been another standard week for me.  I eat the same old same old.  This week my exercise has been a little out of whack.  Hiking everyday, except Monday and today.  Tuesday and Thursday I did only my hike - due to taco-induced coma, and Thursday Dan came home!  Friday my lunch got switched at work.  Something that I really don't appreciate because it screws up my whole system...  Other than that it's been Herbalife breakfast, Kale salad for lunch, and something within my calorie range for dinner.  Visited the gym Monday, Wednesday, and plan to go for a bit tonight!

I have stopped taking my multi-vitamin though, and my morning nausea has stopped.  I did get Cookies & Cream F1, Dutch Chocolate F1, Vanilla PDM, Thermo-bond, Cell-u-lose, and a BIG tea.  The cookies and cream is so damn good - I would like to replace all of my meals with a shake.  I have that extra protein now (PDM) so that my formula 1 lasts longer, and I feel much fuller.  I haven't been getting as hungry between breakfast and lunch.  A piece of fruit and my cup of coffee gets to me lunch without considering raiding the community fridge for goodies.  I have been getting really hungry at about 2:30-3:00, which is a bummer.  I'm working on a solution now.  I have also been feeling a little extra bloated this week.  It might due to stress/excitement about Dan's arrival - but I'm hoping the Cell-u-loss will help with any water weight gain.  I might need to do a little Herbalife cleanse here soon (WARNING: My brain could potentially just be creating an excuse to buy more Herbalife...)

I just started my Therma-bond & Cell-u-loss yesterday.  I'm going to try to stay on track - but I'm really bad with pills.  I'm considering dividing them up into three different bottles so that I can keep one by my blender, one in my bathroom, and one in my purse...  Like today, I forgot them all at home - so I'm only going to get one dose.  Oops!  Weekend update will be on it's way. 

I think I like this schedule.  Week day update, and then weekend.  I'm going to be eating a little more than normal this weekend - but I'm hoping I can trick Dan into going to the gym or on a hike!  I'll keep ya posted!
