I wanted to give a special thank to all of you who came to celebrate this milestone with
me...especially my mom! She flew all the way from Alaska.
All of your guys’ endless love and support is priceless to me! Thank you for taking the time out of your day to make me feel so loved and so special! God continues to bless me to the point my cheeks hurt from smiling! Love you all! 🥰
#149dayspostop Jesus take the wheel!! I used to killlllll drinking water. If I was on it I could do at least 3 litres per day no problem!! But now, with Steeevie, those days are a myth. .
It takes so bloody long to sip it down (I actually still gulp as I like the sensation of lots of water in my mouth, but then take tiny gulps to get it down my throat). Add in the 30 minute wait after eating and I'm done. It's too much hard work.
But I know my snacking is because I'm thirsty....and if I upped my water I'd eat better...I just know it!! I've downloaded a water app in the hope it can keep me accountable, I've got myself a new "pretty" water flask to trick myself into being excited about it 😂 and I'm making it a priority. We're 70% water and I refuse to get sick down the road because I didn't put the work in now. I'll let you know how it goes 😫
Many people eat less fruits & veggies in the winter. Maybe @ImperfectProduce can help you eat more by delivering some less than perfect but oh so nutritious produce to your front door! Read details below. #UCDavisBariatrics#ImperfectProduce#ReduceFoodWaste ⠀
We source ugly produce directly from farms⠀
Approximately 20% of fruits and vegetables in the U.S. never leave the farm just because they look a little different. Instead of ending up on your dinner plate, they end up left in the field or trucked to landfill. We think that’s crazy, and we’ve built a network of over 150 farmers and producers who agree. We buy their unloved produce, and they’re rewarded for their full harvest–not just for the pretty stuff.⠀
You customize your box to get exactly what you want⠀
Since our goal is to waste less food, we’re not going to send you produce you don’t want. You get to choose which items come in every box that ends up on your doorstep. Don't like kale? No problem. Extra carrots? You got it. Eager to try celery root? More power to you. Our seasonal menu changes each week, so there’s always something new and exciting to try–or you can stick to the staples, because we have those, too.⠀
We deliver your customized box to your home⠀
Shortly after you’ve chosen your produce for the week and finalized your perfect box, our drivers drop it off with a smile at your doorstep. To minimize our carbon footprint and make sure you get your produce on time, you’re assigned a delivery day based on your neighborhood. Don’t worry though–you don’t have to be home to receive a delivery. You can leave us detailed directions on where to leave your box until you can bring it safely inside.⠀
You enjoy healthy, delicious produce and save money!⠀
Everyone wins! The farmer is rewarded for his full harvest, the food and the resources used to grow it weren’t wasted, and you get delicious, healthy, affordable fruits and veggies. What’s not to love?
So here’s what’s up today. I took the day off. Just finished my cardio and since I have some up coming travel plans I bought some resistance bands and am saving resistance band workouts on YouTube. Sure, I could not workout for 6 days but I have such a hard time restarting when I stop for long stretches. I found PG tips tea which I hear is really good from my favorite UFO conspiracy podcast ( betcha didn’t know I love anything UFO/Bigfoot/weird stuff) I found some smaller trail mix bags that are only 135 cals a bag when most snack bags you find in the grocery store have two servings clocking in between 270-300 calories. Yikes. And I found Jordan’s Skinny syrups for $3.99 and what I like to do is keep refilling my Torani bottle because I like their flip cap instead of unscrewing the tops of other syrups. Yup. I’m lazy. #sleevedcommunity#verticalsleeve#vsgsurgery#vsgfamily#wlslife#verticalsleevegastrectomy#vsglife#bariatriclife#vsginstacrew#sleevelife#gastricsleevesupport#gastricsleevesurgery#vsg
