SELouisiana's Journal, 15 April 2013

Today has gone well. Workouts were great earlier this morning and my calories have been consumed for the day. Now that my day is over I just need to finish a couple chores and then do some evening meditation.
I have begun drinking green tea in the mornings and it is really fantastic. I dont drink coffee at all and really try to stay away from caffeine bc I dont like to feel jumpy. Wanted to try the green tea for elimination purposes even though it has caffeine in it and i truly feel like I had more energy during my workouts. It was a pleasant surprise. It also worked for my elimination issues. Will definitely continue with the green tea for sure.
Oh and I think im going to start using a protein powder in May. I found a REALLY great one on as a result of watching these twin guy workout gurus on youtube. I dont know why I didnt know abt this before! That will be SO much easier than trying to consume a bunch of chicken breasts for protein. And this particular protein powder is supposed to be the best...I researched it adnauseum. Called Iso100 whey protein isolate and is 100% hydrolyzed. Cant wait to order that in May.
I weigh my self everyday but I record weigh ins on fatsecret every week to two weeks. Will record one on wednesday for sure. I feel so good for deciding to take my life BACK! Positive energy all around! :D

Also, I officially changed my diet to "calorie count" on i think saturday but it simultaneously used my weigh in of 205 from last wednesday. Im not sure why but im not the most techy person either. Still working on how to enter my historical weight under this new diet log too. For some reason it wont save. Oh well...onward and upward! :D

I LOVE hemp protein powder. I get it in the organic section of Hy-Vee Super Market. Cost $10 a bag, but it has lasted me over 4 weeks, and I still have some! I drink green tea as often as I can - LOVE it. I'm also not a coffee drinker. I get a lot of loose leaf teas at the farmer's markets. You are doing amazing! Loving this positivity!

Hi Megan! And thx! I havent heard of a hy vee market. I dnt think we have one in louisiana. Im sure that product can be found at a whole foods type store though. And the price is really attractive too! The green tea is like a secret weapon...just sitting in my refrigerator this entire time. Glad I finally started steeping those tea bags. They work! Gonna start looking into otherbrands once I use all that I currently have. Thx for that protein info too!
