This has prompted me to make a few changes and try some new things.
One of those is a new brand of protein powder...it is called 1st Phorm Level 1, I got the Chocolate Mocha.
It is a whey and egg white protein mixture.
Up until this point I had only tried the Nectar Brand proteins and they are think as water. They are nice when you want an iced coffee or want a protein to dump into a yogurt or something...but they S U C K on the smoothie side.
So I bought this protein that my Daddy suggested and it makes the BEST smoothie I have ever had.
So this leads into my second new thing...
I have decided that I need to change my eating habits...for the next few weeks at least...
I am 99% sure that my gain was water and I was thinking to myself..."What is the quickest way to purge water weight?" I have no answer to that question, what I do have is the one thing that makes me pee a lot. I upped my protein. I mean A LOT. I eat 5 "meals" a day and I have traded out 3 of them for protein shakes. They consist of 1 cup of ice, 3/4 cup water, and one scoop protein powder. I run it though my blender bullet and voila breakfast, morning snack,lunch,afternoon snack...and sometimes afternoon snack...
Ok so apparently, I eat 6 meals a day...who knew...lol
Anyways...To recap...I tried a new protein and I changed my eating habits...Next new thing...
I went to a baseball game...A Cardinal's game to be exact...and it was two games in one week!
The first game was for "Girl Scout Night @ Busch Stadium". We got seats up in the nose bleed section for $14 a person. It was my baby girls first game and she had WAY more fun than I did. She loved having her friends there...
The second game (When the picture was taken ->), was on Friday and it was an end of the academic school year and Beta Alpha Psi (My honors frat that I am pledged this semester). It was fun to hang out with a bunch of Accounting majors where alcohol was involved. I had two things at the park. A protein shot that I carry in my purse for emergencies and a bottle of water. I am very proud of myself!
I did have an NSV tied to this baseball game adventure.
That jersey that you see me in that photo...is a mens XL. Even though it isn't buttoned in the photo it does button.
When I started the surgery a men's XXL wouldn't have buttoned. A XXXL would have fit fine.
In all the times I have tried to lose weight I have NEVER gone down a size. I am excited about this because in the past I couldn't have a team jersey because I wouldn't have found one that fit.
