New Journey!

Although my trainer has not given me the diet that I am going to follow I thought I would start converting over. I have followed his diet in the past and I pretty much know how it going to go. I got up early so that I could get my eating schedule in place: 6 am, 9am, 12pm, 3pm, 6pm and 9pm. I started off with a protein shake made with Pro Complex and 8 ounces of Almond Breeze.
I decided that I would tackle cleaning out the refrigerator and begin preparing for my new eating plan. So I tossed things that needed to be tossed and things that I knew that I would not be eating any time soon and no one else in house would either. The refrigerator looks sparkly clean and it was way over due. 900 am came before I knew it and I cook up myself one egg and 4 whites along with a medium apple.
Time seem to fly today and before I knew it 1200 was here and I was ready for meal three. I reheated the last of the salmon that I had last night with some fresh green beans I picked up from the farmers market yesterday topped with a little Molly Mcbutter. I doubt that this will be something that will be allowed on the new program but I did enjoy it today. Met my friend, Diane, over at the gym and we trained chest, shoulders and triceps. We had a great work out and it was nice getting caught up on things. After the work out I had a Whey protein Nectar shake and I hit the elliptical for 30 minutes of cardio. My client cancelled tonight so I was able to head home early.
Dinner tonight was a taco chicken salad on green lettuce that I had picked up at the farmers market along with 2 tablespoon of ranch dressing. I have to admit I really have missed meat and it was nice to having it again. I snacked on a few dill pickles and will have another protein shake at 900.
Today was a good way to get back in the game. I am not official in the game until Monday but the scale was up a few pounds and I want to make sure I am at least 152 at the gym going into Monday. I was 154 today. I believe that goal we are shooting for is 135 or so.
I saw my trainer at the gym today and it felt slightly weird from our conversation yesterday. We didn't say much to each other and it made me feel real uneasy. This could just be the fact that I am not use to addressing my need and desires and worried that he will hold it against me or retaliate in some way. I know that should weird but that is how I feel. I train with the group tomorrow and I am slightly nervous to see how I will be treated. I know that if I feel anyway mistreated or singled out I need to stick up for myself and say that it is not appropriate. I guess I will cross that bridge if it happens. I need to continue to remind myself, although he is a great trainer and well know he is NOT the only trainer. And I deserve to be treated with respect and if I don't feel that way and can not get resolution that I have to the right and should leave.
I am not the same person I was a few month ago and I feel strong in what I need to do for me if it comes down to it! I deserve the best and look forward to this new journey to the finish line!

You go! Way to stand up for yourself... and the meal plan looks good- I am thinking about trying to eat more often and less, but I don't know if I can be that strict- sticking to the times anyhow! Good Luck, hope group training was fun!
