So, here I thought I'd finally get to that elusive 60 mark that I've been toying with all week today. Did it happen? Well, I'm sure you can guess that it didn't.

And I don't know why in the world I thought it would. In fact, I had a gain. SIGH. I know exactly all the things that went wrong yesterday. Nothing for breakfast, no veggies at all, no water (BIG no-no), protein count way too low, carb count way too high and snacked a little late last night.

So, what did I learn? A ton!!! Was it worth it? Heck no! I'm totally disappointed. Those stinkin' Special K Cracker Chips and McDonald's Sweet Tea (worst offender by far) was not worth it. Will I do it again? Probably. Because here's the thing, we are not perfect!!!! I'm hoping that this tool will constantly be a reminder to me of the way I ate before the surgery so that I never eat that way again. Is it ok to have a sweet tea every now and again? I think so. Everyday? No, definitely not.

So, I've started my day off right today. It's a very rainy day here. Dreary and cold in fact. I grabbed my blender bottle, 8 oz. of skim milk and one scoop of chocolate Body Fortress Whey Protein for my breakfast and shook it to death. On a totally unrelated subject, my protein shakes have been really lumpy lately, is that due to humidity?  So, I'm going to work my water in the best I can and eat my protein today. 

What's on your menu today?


  1. Hmm...I'm not sure what kind of blender bottle you have, but I use the one with the metal ball whisk thingy (how's that for descriptive) and it seems to work better than the kind with the holes at the top. The humidity could definitely make your protein clump or maybe you didn't shut the bag tightly enough?

    You will get to that 60 mark soon! You know exactly what to do. :)

  2. I have the ball whisky thing too! My protein shakes are in a big plastic canister thing with a lid, so I'm thinking it's the humidity.

    Today I shook the snot out of it and it helped ;)

  3. Bummer about the gain. Hang in there. And yeah... Sweet Tea is not a good thing. Have you tried the Mio Sweet Tea flavor? Might be worth a shot to keep the flavor and dump the calories and sugar.

    My protein powder has been lumpy lately too. Interesting. wonder if it is the humidity?
