It's weird but I'm glad, there isn't anything 'visibly wrong' with my knee! Yuppie for that! However I am going to take it slow with that . One thing I HATE about the medical system here is that when you go to the Doctor and then they ask you to do some tests, (back in Dubai-you will be told later if the tests were okay, and what you need to do etc)
However here, they would call and get you in the doctors office ONLY and ONLY if there is anything wrong. So no news is good news! So when a doctor's office calls after you have done a test-it usually means that there is something wrong with the tests. Anyhow, as good as the system is (for the doctors) it isn't always good for the patient, so obviously this means I did not get a call from the doctor's office so I called in to check if they received my results and what the doctor thinks. Apparently the receptionist said there was a note that there isn't anything 'visibly wrong' and asked me to follow what the doctor said in my earlier visit! I hate this-I hate to go visit a doctor -meaning wait in the line up just to see the doctor and then come back with a dissatisfied feeling. Such is the plight here, unlike back in Dubai or even India, here there are less doctors to patient ratio so there are very high wait time. Anyhow.
So after much research and calculations and thinking and really pondering on my lifestyle,I have come to a conclusion that I am going to be doing a 'Slimfast shake ' diet.
For those who don't know it is a meal replacement shake which you take instead of a meal. The diet is supposed to be 3-2-1-meaning
3 snacks of 100 calories
2 Slimfast meal replacement shakes or bars(they even have bars you can eat instead of shakes)
1 -500 calorie healthy dinner.
Well after thinking hard of what I really want, I came to the conclusion that I will only replace 1 meal (dinner) for me with the Slimfast shake.
I chose Dinner as for me, whenever I have eaten lighter dinners it has worked for me to loose some weight! So I will eat my yummy oatmeal for breakfast a sensible well balanced lunch and 3 snacks and Slimfast shake in the night! This is my goal for the next week.
Today I weighed 190.6 lbs. I am going to also start updating my weigh-in page and see how it goes for the next week.
Exercise wise, I am planning to wait it for a week more and then get started may be with Yoga and upper body-.
That's it for now-over to you-What's your goal?
