MRC Week 2 – And so it begins

Well, we went to nutrition class last night, and there was the big sell.  by which I mean they spend a lot of time telling you about all the stuff you should buy.  But we also got more information on what I can and can’t have.   Afterwards there was no time to work out.  But when I hopped on the Wii fit this morning it told me I lost 3.3 pounds this last week.  So GO ME!  Eric lost 5.5, so he sucks, since he is not even officially on the diet.  But he eats the same things I do and being a man he just generally will lose faster.  Which kind of sucks because he needs to lose so much less.

Anyway, I am eating more now than I was on the conditioning, and since I have never been a huge eater anyway it is a little frustrating.  Get up, try to take all my vitamins I was taking before (1 a day, fish oil, CoQ10, Omneprizole, and Birth control pill) and now the 6 extra they have me taking, their “Big 3” and a trace minerals…which I will take now and probably not use again once the bottle is up.    I tried to talk to my counselor about the nightmares that the supplements have been giving me, but she just told me to take it earlier so I could be sure to keep the full effect going.  I am trying her suggestion tonight, but if I have the freaky “wake my husband up with my screaming” dreams again then forget it.  If I go too long without good sleep my willpower crashes and no one needs that.

Got back into the bellydancing DVDs today.  Neena and Veena, they have some awesome stuff.  I am sure that they could be better done, but I defiantly feel like I get a workout by the time it is over.  Otherwise spent the day cleaning and trying to figure out meals…there is so much MEAT.  I know, it is a high protein diet, but ugh.  I like meat, but just not that much of it.  trying to choke down that and the veggies and starch/fruit is a bit difficult.  I boiled some water and made my HNS with cranberry green tea nice and warm for after dinner.  It was more enjoyable that way.

I better go, need to finish cleaning up the kitchen before I can shower and relax before bed.  I will update soon.  Maybe I will have better progress halfway through the week…and no nightmares, fingers crossed.

    If your having negative affects from a supplement then STOP taking it and get some decent sleep! I’d have a few choice words for the “counselor” too. Is she a Doctor? ;oD BTW I think they make their money on all the supplement sales. A good multi vitamin and calcium (vit D) supplement is probably all you really need. ;oD You have a great sense of humor in your postings so good luck in your journey!

    Thanks and yeah, I stopped taking them for a couple of days of wonderfully restful sleep. I do not plan on buying them, again. I know they make alot of their profits and I think commissions on the supplements. I got these because my husband works at a neutraceutical company and I wanted to have the bottle to see if they sold anything that was an equivalent (he gets me free supplements). Thanks for the encouragement and good luck to you too!

    I bet you could get your money back if you bring them back at the next appointment. Then put that $ in a jar to buy yourself a nice treat when you reach a short term goal. Rooting for you!
