I heard the FedEx truck rumbling in the parking lot to my home. The driver heaved and hoed the enormous box up the stairs and gave a two knuckle knock at the front door and vanished. I hoped this was not a foreshadowing of myself in the box.
Pulling the box inside I could not believe how heavy it was. After maneuvering the box indoors, I roamed around contemplating the best place to store it. (Unpacking tip: open the outer carton outside your door then take out the 4 smaller and lighter inner cartons and bring them inside.) I could not stand not knowing what was inside; I ripped the packaging tape right down the middle to find more boxes and labels of weeks for my new meals for a month. The outer box was taking up too much space, so I took each individual week out and stacked them in chronological order.
Tada! I had a little anxiety knowing this would be my fuel for the next month, especially since my husband was making a veggie omelet, side of cottage cheese, and a peanut butter smoothie. I did not know what I was getting myself into. The decision of when to start was daunting.
I opened week 1, read the welcome packet, and had some heart flutters trying to process the unknowing of my new GenoVive meal program. The next morning I heated up my warm blueberry whole grains. Visually, I was a little nervous, but when I felt the flavors burst over my taste buds, I knew breakfast was going to be a piece of cake, no pun intended. As the day progressed, I was pleasantly surprised at how satisfied I felt. To be continued…
