I've been doing very well on IP! Better than I thought I might. Part of that is because of my thyroid issues so I cannot say how happy I am that I'm losing. I went yesterday for some more blood work to check my levels. All I know is that I'm feeling rested and more energized than I have in a long time.

I feel like I have so much more determination this time than I did in the past. I'm mixing it up so much with different foods which is where I think I went wrong last time. I didn't have enough variety or enough bar/snack options. Though part of that is because gluten free alternative IP items were not all that easy to find. Long story short, I have a huge box of "protein chips" to grab from and 7 boxes of three different kind of bars if I want them. They are all restricted, so I'm trying to only have them when I really, really want them.

Yesterday I worked, got off early, did some blood work, went shopping, came home and relaxed a little... then cleaned most of the living room. I'm telling you, deep cleaning! My mother walked in and asked who had replaced her daughter, lol! So much energy, I love it. Unfortunately, TOM is here which means I'll be very crampy and soon wanting all the salty / sweet things. That's okay, I have dill pickles and a chocolate covered peanut crunch bar!

I hope everyone is having a great weekend!
