R5 Phase 2 Day 4

Weight - 149.2

This is one of those days that leaves me scratching my head.  I'm up one pound.  I'm going to up my protein some today and see if that helps.  

I spent a good part of the day digging around in my spare walk in closet and in the crawlspace looking for a 50 year old baby blanket that was not even in my house.  I didn't think it was, but my daughter-in-law could not find it and was frantic so I started looking here.  It's the blanket I went home from the hospital in.  Both my sons came home from the hospital in it.  My granddaughter came home in it.  My younger son and his girlfriend are expecting their first child later this month.  I want him to come home in it too.  Eventually it will be my oldest son's to pass to my granddaughter.   My daughter-in-law finally found it, but not before I'd pulled everything out of a 7 x 8 x 10 closet that was loaded with stuff.  That stuff ended up all over my bathroom and my bedroom.  Originally when the house carpeting and painting began I was not going to bother with the two master closets because there was so much in them.  Well, pulling most out of one, I saw how badly it needs new paint and carpet.  So, now that's going to have to get done next week.  I can't see putting things back in there for just a few days, so out it sits.  Things will not go back in there like they had been.  It had become storage and overflow for my son and daughter-in-law.  Totally unusable for me.  I'd like to be able to put linens and offseason clothing in there.

  1. Hi Beth - I see you've started Round 5. Do you mind me asking what you ate during loading and how many days did you load?

  2. I ate fairly normally but added several servings of nuts both days. Pecans, walnuts, and macadamia nuts. I loaded New Years Day and Monday. The family was wanting to eat eat eat. I had a big breakfast meal for lunch with pumpkin pancakes that day. Can't remember what I had for dinner that day, but I'm sure it was carby. On Monday I had Thai food that I split into two meals and the nuts.

    I always advocated loading lightly, having a few things you'll miss and concentrating on an added healthy fat like nuts, avocado, oils, butter, fatty cuts of meat, cheese.

  3. Hey Beth, I tried mushrooms the first round and went up the next day. So after researching, found out mushrooms have certian properties not compatable with hcg. Please check it out. Also, don't up the protien yet, just correct first, from the mushrooms, then continue Dr. Simeons origanal protacol, and it will correct it self.
