Week 4: Ideal Protein


TEN!? TEN POUNDS!? Oh goodness! I can’t believe it! I was a little uneasy at the office today because I really wanted to clear the ten pound mark. “Just under two pounds,” slowed me down a bit as I stepped on the scale, but once I did the math in my head, exhilaration quickly took over. 10.1 pounds in three weeks. My head is still swimming from it. I could have hugged Dr. Kate, but I was worried I might start crying. After I purchased my meals for the week, I promptly engaged in happy dancing in the parking lot because I’ve earned it!

Now that I am acclimated to the IP protocol, and I have a greater understanding of how my body reacts, Dr. Kate has green lit my return to training! I have the lululemon athletica SeaWheeze in August and the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon de Montreal in September. By then, I am hoping to be rocking new duds and a stronger, healthier body! I have some longer layovers in the next week and a half, Los Angeles and San Diego, so I am going to hit the gym in addition lounging around the pool and reading A Game of Thrones. Plus, I need to work on my base tan, so I can actually work on running in the sunlight!

I have been very fortunate in the last few months, as I have ceased contact with the toxic people in my life. Part of this journey is discovering healthy relationships, not only with food, but with people, too. It is a shame that sometimes, severing ties is the only means for sanity, but in the long run, it is an avenue in which both parties benefit. I do not have to deal with the passive-aggressions, and ideally, the other party is turning their interests toward other pursuits.
