Progress!

Standard

I have been at this low cholesterol nutrition plan and exercise for three weeks now. I have to give myself a huge pat on the back because things are going very well.

I did not think I would be as successful but the Beachbody Challenge Group is such a fantastic and supportive group of women, which greatly helps in my accountability because I do not want to disappoint them. The first week, I had a few headaches and I was a little irritable; however, I survived and things are much easier for me.

I think my stomach is shrinking because I do not eat very much and moderation is becoming more natural. Portion sizes are easier to manage and my body is not craving food like it used to, which  is fantastic.

I did not lose much weight last week but I did have two cheat meals and did not exercise very much. I continue to lose inches and some of my pants are loose on me now. Not only do the numbers look good, I just feel amazing. I am happy, I have higher energy, my libido is coming back, I am at peace, and have more patience. I just feel…so good.

As I go into week four, I am planning on jogging/running on the elliptical 12 miles per week and getting 2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar into my diet per day. I heard these measures (on top of my low cholesterol nutrition plan) will help blast the belly fat (which I have a lot) so I am excited to make these additions and see what happens at the end of the week.

Garcinia Cambogia; Status Report

Standard

Taking Garcinia Cambogia

Week One Diary

Day 1: Excellent; felt energized without shakiness, no headaches, hunger and cravings were non-existent. I felt great all day.

Day 2: Blah; after taking my four pills in the morning, I had a horrible headache all day. I had no shakiness and my hunger/cravings were non-existent. I did not take anymore of the Garcinia Cambogia for the rest of the day. After dinner, I had 12-ounces of Dr. Pepper to help alleviate the headache (thinking it was withdrawal symptoms from caffeine). After taking two Advil Migraine pills and drinking my soda, I felt much better. I blame my symptoms on caffeine withdrawals and not associated with the Garcinia Cambogia.

Day 3: I did not take any pills today. I felt energized and had no hunger/cravings, no shakiness all day long.

Day 4: I took my pills as prescribed for breakfast only. I felt amazing energy and had no hunger/cravings, no shakiness all day long.

Day 5: I took my pills as prescribed for breakfast only. I felt amazing energy and had no hunger/cravings, no shakiness all day long.

Day 6: I did not take any pills today, completely forgot. I felt energized and had no hunger/cravings, no shakiness all day long.

Day 7: I slept in and did not take my pills for breakfast. I plan on taking my pills as prescribed for lunch only. I feel energized and I have no hunger/cravings, no shakiness.

My Thoughts about Garcinia Cambogia

You take a lot of pills and you have to remember to take your pills one hour before you eat. That is difficult for me but if I used an alarm on my cell phone to remind me that would be helpful. I love the energy Garcinia Cambogia provides; it isn’t like the HydroxyCut I tried, where you are shaky and have heart palpitations. Garcinia Cambogia gave me amazing energy without any weird or yucky side effects. I really like that aspect of the product. As far as hunger and cravings, I had no issues this week. I don’t know if that was because of the Garcinia Cambogia or my high-protein diet and remembering to eat snacks between my meals. This week I lost a half inch of belly fat. Again, I don’t know if that was because of the Garcinia Cambogia or my diet and the fact that I stuck to my awesome exercise schedule. Overall, I like the product. I will take the pills one more week (keeping a diary) and then reassess for next week.
