Well, first off, I need to adjust my review of WalMart's homeopathic HCG. It does work, but it tastes nasty, until you get used to it. (It's chocolate mint flavored. I didn't think anything could make me dislike chocolate mint. Eww.) Once you get used to it, it's not bad.
It does work. Did I mention that? Works just fine.
So, I've been plateaued for a week. It's been driving me crazy. Apple day helped some, but then I stalled again the next day. So I went back to that old standby that always helps me.
Now, Dr Simeons does not prescribe exercise in his protocol, but I suggest that you include it in your regimen if you are physically able to do so. Even if it's just a stroll around the block. Your body was designed to move, not to veg out in front of a screen. So start walking. Just gentle walking, you don't need to run or do power walks!
I would not suggest starting an Olympic training protocol while on the HCG protocol, but you do need to move.
My routine will be a run around the block. I do interval training - a 5 minute warm up, then 1 minute running and 2 minutes walking for six rounds, then a five minute cool down. However, I am used to training! I've been working out all my life on some level or another. I've worked with Olympic trainers and done boot camps, I've done a lot of weight training, and I will say this over and over.....
Listen to your body!
You may not be able to do what I do. Find something that is gentle enough for you to stick with, and then stick with it!
I'm kind of weird about working out these days, I'm so busy that I just can't stand to go to the gym and add another thing to my list. But I can manage a quick run around the block (and I do this just before bedtime, by the way). Somehow getting in the car to drive to the gym is just that one more thing I don't want to do.
So get out and move. There is so much to do!
Oh, and I dropped 2 pounds overnight after my first little run. It will work.
