A Couple of Things

Just a few things...

*I have pinkeye.

*I am packing to leave on a three-day spring break mini-vacation. We'll be doing some fun stuff a few hours away. I need it. My older kids are going on a visit with their father, so just my daughter and I will be having a couple of girls days & nights out together.

*I plan to bring my Medifast stuff with me, stay on schedule as closely as I can. I'll take portable stuff like bars, pretzels, and puffs, but also will bring a few other things since I will have a microwave and boiling water available. I plan to order something as close to a Lean & Green meal as possible when we stop for dinners.

*Medifast has a 4&2 plan as well for days when you are very active (more than 45 minutes of vigorous activity per day) so depending on how much activity I have going on, I may eat a breakfast meal as well. I tried to ask my Medifast nutritionist about this last week, but she never answered. (I was assigned a nutritionist, but every time I have emailed her I have gotten zero response until I contacted Medifast asking about why I am getting no response. I usually wait 4 or 5 days or even a week but have never gotten an answer at all via email unless I pursue it further. NOT impressed!)

*I tried several new Medifast foods and took photos and have reviews coming, probably today because I don't want to wait til I get back from vacation. Most of it was very good!

*I am taking my laptop with me, and barring any problems with Internet access, I'll be blogging at night after the little one is asleep.

*I am way, way, super way behind on answering my emails. So sorry! I haven't forgotten about you... just have been busy. And my eyeballs hurt.

I will probably post some reviews later today. That's all for now!

Oh, a vacation. I'm jealous. I've got 60 some odd days until vacation. I think. Or 70 some.

I'm ready.

enjoy the vacation with your daughter!! Thank you for the coming reviews. In your own time though!!! If it takes a week so be it. You must take care of yourself and your family first. I know you can vacation and be successful. :)

Oh, so glad to hear you are going to be doing something special. And it will be an interesting challenge for your Medi Fast plan. You do such a great job w/the reviews; the company was smart to recruit you.

U gonna get some ointment for that conjunctivitis so you can enjoy yourself a bit more?

All the best to you my friend! Have fun! Chrissy

If I were you, I would email the company and tell them you want a new nutritionist if they want to continue to have your business. I mean, what good is it if they dont help???

Ack! Sorry to hear about the pink eye. That's always ickas.

Have a great time on your mini-vacation! I look forward to hearing how you fared with your plan away from home.

if it isn't better tomorrow morning I am going in for some eye drops before I leave on vacation!


Medifast is giving me the products for free to review. I did let them know and they are going to figure out what's going on for me. I'm not terribly upset about it but I might be if I were a paying customer!

Yuck...pinkeye sucks! But at least you have this fun vacation time with your daughter to enjoy. Your plan for taking your foods with you is great. A lot of folks use a "vacation" as a time to "vacation from their healthy eating plan". You're awesome with your commitment!
Have a great trip.

Just a word of encouragement when eating out - Don't be afraid to be a picky eater, or to ask for them to box up 1/2 your meal before it arrives at your table! You're paying for it, so you're allowed to be picky. ;)

Keep up the great work!

oh, pinkeye...not fun! I used to get that when I was young. Everyone in the house usually ended up with it. Hope you have a fun spring break.
