Hi Coaches Cristina and Steph,
I never made it to the gym last Thursday as it closed due to a snowstorm. We got about ten inches and the roads were slippery! So instead, I worked out at home riding my exercise bike for about 40 minutes. I went to the gym on Friday and was weighed. I lost 5.6 pounds in a week! I shocked everyone at the gym!
I saw my primary care physician, Dr. Feldmann, and he did a physical and checked out a bunch of health related issues I have. One thing I forgot to mention was how I've been taking my BioTrust supplements and Low Carb. I will have to remember when I see him for a follow-up in four months. I did speak to my Kidney Doctor, Dr. Friedenberg, and he thought I shouild have bloodwork done to check my potassium levels as I have had high readings in the past. Where I have severe kidney disease, he wants me to be sure I drink Low Carb before having the labs done. I've been drinking the Strawberry-Banana flavor but found out that it's too high in Potassium! I will have to see about whether or not I will be able to continue drinking my shakes.
Meanwhile, I am going to switch flavors up and drink the Cafe Mocha flavor as its lower in potassium. I sure hope I have good readings as I don't want to give my Low Carb up!!
So I helped a friend try to make a decision whether or not they would join the forums. I told her that you guys were the best Coaches in the world!! She's still a little shy and will join sooner or later. I did "bump" into a BioTrust forum member, keepfitkitty, on Facebook and have pm'd her to see how she likes working with Brian and Born Fitness. I gave her a good reference to help Brian out some. She is a real go-getter!
Well I will probably miss the gym again tomorrow as we are having a blizzard right now. We are expecting 14 to 16 inches of snow!! I miss the gym! I will have to work out at home again but that's okay. When I finally do go to the gym, possibly on Tuesday, I will be weighed again. Can't wait to see the number on the scale!
Hope you have good weather out your way, Coaches Cristina and Steph! Talk to you later!
