I can't believe it's already been a month of the Cinch program!! It's been a struggle and a challenging one since I have not been able to do my favorite workout routines. Although I have tried to sneak a few in, walking has been my main exercise. Each time I've gone to physical therapy, I have asked my Therapist to allow me to exercise more, but it's been a no go. I've noticed a difference in the energy I had when I was able to do more exercises. I also saw quicker results when I initially started this program earlier in the year. But what can I do? I've gotta listen to Dr's orders right?
My favorite shake concoction for the month:
- vanilla Cinch

Although my measurements haven't changed too much, I've been able to stick to my daily routine with having a shake in the morning, meal bar for lunch and a sensible dinner. Yes, I snack throughout the day on "free foods" or sensible, low calorie snacks. I have had a few slip ups through the month with several Summertime bbq's, birthday celebrations and family trips. That's when "dieting" is the hardest for me. My family and I love to entertain, hang out with friends and family as well as have a good beer or glass of wine from time to time. I have been able to steer clear of over indulging when I do crave something sweet.
