Xyngular ~ Day 1

This morning I woke up exhausted!! I am now working night shift at the hospital and my body is having a hard time adjusting to the new schedule.  I'm finding on my days off that I spend my time up all night and taking naps during the day.  This is really not the way I want to live my life. I was talking with some gals at work and they told me it took time for them to adjust, but they are able to live a normal life now on their days off.  Fingers crossed that it will happen really soon.

I started the Xyngular challenge this morning and they claim that this will help with, not only weight loss, but with energy.

I woke up early to take my girls to Vacation Bible School and then came back home to start the Xyngular regime.  I stepped on the scale this morning and the dreaded numbers 262.4 stared back at me.  I also had my daughter take some dreaded before pictures.

I have a long ways to go, but I need something to give me that kick start to finally get to goal. 

Here's a little recap of my day:
Xyng Capsule (This is for energy and appetite control)
1 oz global juice ( antioxidants) I had a glass of water near by just in case it tasted nasty.  It was actually pretty good.  I also took the Axion multivitamin.

After coming back from taking the girls to VBS I made my protein shake, which I mixed with 8oz unsweetened almond milk.

The mid-morning snack called for 4-6 oz of protein.  I didn't prepare very well today and decided to cook up 2 eggs and then I took a wedge of the laughing cow light herb and garlic cheese wedge between the eggs and ate it like a sandwich.  It was really good and I was hungry.

Lunch was another protein shake with almond milk, but this time I added a few drops of vanilla creme stevia...much better.

I'm still waiting for the energy to kick in, but I wasn't feeling it.  I realize I didn't get any sleep last night so I decided to go lay down and take a nap.  I slept until about 4:00 p.m., hence my pattern of sleeping during the day and up all night.  ugh!!

When I woke up I called my sister and told her that the Xyng isn't working and I wanted my money back.  She told me that I need to give it some time and that I can't blame xyng for not getting any sleep last night, which she is right.  I went ahead and took 2 accelerate capsules, which is also to help with energy and metabolism.  I've felt pretty "blah" today and I guess I was hoping for that miracle of feeling on top of the world.  As my sister told me that the first three days are the toughest because you're going through detox and that the energy and the mood lifts will kick in.  She also said that if one xyng doesn't work I can take another one around 2:00 pm.  I know a couple of her friends have to take 2 because 1 just doesn't do it for them. 

Now it's time to do another protein snack.  I took some shredded turkey and wrapped it around some string cheese and then nuked it for a few seconds and it was so good.  I do have to admit that my hunger isn't too bad, and I'm not hanging out in the kitchen dreaming of eating everything in site.  I ended the day with another protein shake with almond milk, but I wanted something different so I added some unsweetened cocoa and vanilla creme stevia.  

I just got done taking two flush capsules with some hot cocoa, which is supposed to clean out the gut.  I suppose that now that it's 1:00 in the morning I probably should go to bed and see if I can get back on a schedule before I return back to work on Thursday night.   All in all I had a pretty good day as far as not being hungry and drinking over 100 oz of water.  The energy is still not there and I'm feeling a headache coming on, but I will give it a few days and see how I feel by Thursday.  I'm off to bed and hoping that I can get some sleep and I'm not up all night in the bathroom from all of that water I drank today.  Good night and I'll be back tomorrow with another update.

Xyngular and an 8 Day Challenge

Life has been crazy and in fast forward around here.  I can't believe how much time has gone by since I posted last.  I guess I should fill you in on where I've been and what I've been up to.  The last time I posted I was weighing in at 270 pounds and this morning I stepped on the scale I was at 260 pounds.  I graduated from the Nursing Program on May 18, and have been spending the last few weeks studying for State Boards so that I can finally put R.N. behind my name.  My test is Wednesday, June 20, so my time is all about studying and working. I've been working full-time at the hospital (night shift) and my body is having a really hard time adjusting to the new sleep schedule.  I find myself eating junk and drinking caffeine just to stay awake, which I know is bad for my health, not to mention the lack of sleep and energy.

I was talking with my sister and she started taking a product called Xyngular.  I've been pretty hesitant about learning anything about it, I have always been against taking pills to help me lose weight.  It's all about calories in and calories out and that's the only way it will work.  I finally gave in and watched the video, you can check it out here if you're interested. I was really impressed with the ingredients that are in these products, I especially love the amount of antioxidants.  Being a nurse, you better believe I looked up every single ingredient in every product that they offer.  The ignite pack plus, which is about 260 some dollars, is the first product that you buy.  This is the kit that has all of the products to get me started on detoxing and losing weight.  I then can pick and choose the products that I love and that will work for me. In order to get this price I automatically become a distributor.  Don't get me wrong, I have no intention on making a business out of this. If it works I'm thinking the gals at work might be interested, and it will help pay for my product. I'm really interested in the juice with the antioxidants.  The older I get the more I worry about disease and less about looking hot in a swimsuit, and this sold me more than anything else that they offer. I also liked the Xyng capsules that give you energy and lifts your mood.  There is a 30 day money back guarantee, and you better believe I will be taking advantage of this if it doesn't do what they claim.

So I'm taking a leap of faith and will be putting in my order today.  As soon as it gets here I'll be starting an 8 day challenge and can't wait to start feeling 100% again.
