I will tell you that my eating habits have really been in check! I am trying really hard to focus on lots of protein, fruits and veggies, and only a few complex carbs. And of course, I am drinking my Shakeology daily :). I have not had any bread or pasta in 3 weeks. Honestly, that is not a hard move for me because I don't really eat much bread or pasta anyway. The only exception was pizza this past weekend, at my son's birthday party. I have had a few sugary treats here and there, but for the most part, my eating has been pretty clean. I even managed to do 2 evenings out last week with GOOD eating choices. Thursday was a reception that my husband won. I didn't have much choice in the dinner option, but it wasn't unhealthy either. I started with a salad with Italian dressing (no croutons), dinner was green beans, pork medallions with a yummy cream sauce, and new potatoes. Dessert was pie or cake. I selected the pie, but only ate the cherry filling (no crust). Friday evening was my 16th anniversary. The hubby and I went out for steak. I ordered a small (6oz) one with a baked sweet potato. Or course, I ate the salad (no croutons) that came with the meal. We did splurge on an appetizer - one of those fried onion things. It was not healthy, but it was delicious!!

I really need to do a write up on the AMAZING supplements that I am taking that are really kicking my EBV in the butt! That is for another time :).
All in all, I am feeling good. My energy is coming back. Believe it or not, I am actually dropping a few pounds. I am pretty sure that is a good sign that my metabolism is turning around. I am going to continue on my progress of slowly getting back into an intense workout routine. MY overall focus is my health, and as long as I keep that on the front of my mind, I will make good choices....that will also lead to some weight loss. I am looking forward to getting back to where I was BEFORE my body started to turn on me.
