More big news!!! I'm back on the weight loss bandwagon. I'm not sticking to one particular diet plan this time, I'm using a hybrid of a few plans plus fighting cravings with healthier swap-outs. For breakfast, I have a Slim Fast shake. Lunch and dinner are usually based on Joel Fuhrman's book Eat To Live as well as Mario Lopez's Extra Lean. My cravings usually range between cheese, ice cream and cake. Lisa Lillien's Hungry Girl website and books are a great tool to help with healthier alternatives. Essentially, I'm aiming at no more than 1900 calories per day, just right for my size. I have completely cut out sugar sweetened drinks, if I do something more than water, it's usually Mio, Crystal Light or Tea with a little Splenda. My coffee is basically black with Splenda and occasionally a tablespoon (yes I do measure) of 2% milk. I can't do anything thinner than 2% milk, it's already too thin for me to love. Since July I have dropped 13 pounds, I started at 197 pounds and my current weight is 184. My goal is to be 145 pounds by May 2016, when Terry and I set sail on our very first cruise.
The diet isn't as difficult as you'd expect, there are so many phone apps that will help keep you on track. Calorie Count being my favorite. Many times this app has helped me make good choices if I found myself in a crunch to get something quick to eat and had to do fast food. My only struggle is trying to tell people that submit their diet 2 cents to fuck off. What works for me might not work for someone else, we are all different and having been to a nutritionist, what I am doing is within the same range as what she customized for me. Honestly, I know what I'm doing and I don't need people that claim they have a clue about nutrition trying to tell me what I should and shouldn't do.
My knitting store is still around at http://adriansknitwits.storenvy.com and I have a lot more fun knitted items in the works. This year will be the first year that I offer reversible colored hats as well as hats with pom poms and embellishments such as flowers and other designs. I have worked up a few Minion hats also.
Speaking of handcrafted items, a few months ago, I helped one of the original Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling wrestlers create an amazing T-Shirt featuring the famous logo in glittering rainbow colors. Be sure to check it it out at the official AfterGlow Fan Party Store http://glowafterglow.storenvy.com.
