Well, a couple of weeks have passed since I finished the cleanse, and I have gone back to eating an organic Keto diet. Dr. Bart has me on a hormonal repair regiment for sixty days. I am taking Symplex F, Chaste Tree, and Wheat Germ Oil. These supplements along with my diet and exercising 6 days/week have me feeling even better than I was, which is quite an accomplishment, because I have been feeling better and better with each passing month. I’ve continued to run everyday. I love it! It’s so freeing. Most weekdays, I’ve been stopping by Westgate Trail before I go pick Weston up, and it’s working out beautifully. I love being outside, and since Banks has had baseball practice until 5:30 or later every night, I can just stop and run for about 15 minutes, pick Weston up from extended day by 4:45, and swing around to the other side of the school and wait on Banks to finish practicing.
All of the continued hard work is paying off. I weighed and measured this morning. I have lost 6 pounds and 4 inches in the last two weeks, which puts me a mere 6 pounds away from what I weighed when I got married nearly 7 years ago. My goal has been to reach that weight by Valentine’s Day. That gives me 11 days to get there. I’m certain I am going to do it! Discipline, discipline, discipline…the key to anything worth while.
While I certainly look better and feel better, there is one problem…everything is too big, including my wedding rings. They just slip and slide all around my finger all day. I suppose I’m going to have to take them off and wear one of those silicone bands until I finish losing weight. My scrub pants look like clown pants on me, and I have to pull them way up high under my bust and cinch the waist in really tight with the drawstring. I have some smaller scrubs in my amazon cart. I’m just waiting until I get paid to order them. One thing I did purchase for myself was a custom shirt from my friend, Chandler Rogers. She’s the creator and designer for Only1 Apparel. She up-cycles old clothing by making it unique and original. She bases her clothing on the fact that each person is “a masterpiece, one of a kind, and unique.” A percentage of her profits are donated to charity, and she’s a genuinely wonderful person. I’m in love with my hand-dyed and distressed shirt, and I’m super excited to dress it up with a cute little skirt or throw it on with some leggings and my sneakers like I did today. I urge you to check out her website and buy yourself a little treasure from Chan!
Well, as I continue to work my booty off (literally) to reach my goals, please pray that I make it to my wedding weight by February 14. I would love to celebrate with my Valentine knowing that I was physically back to the woman he married. We have a very busy next few weeks ahead of us. So, my posts may be short, simple, and to the point in order to accommodate for all the plans we have. Thank you all so much for reading my blog, and I hope you have a great week!
