So call me a quitter, a loser, whatever but at least for right now I can NOT do this diet! I am going to. Try to stick to some of the principles but for the day and 2/3's I was on it I was MISERABLE. I couldn't find enough food to keep me in the fullness zone he wants you in. Maybe it is because my son is still nursing, I don't know but the hunger and the fact that we leave on vacation in a week jut convinced me I was setting myself up for failure!

so for yesterday I followed the plan until lunch but then I had spaghetti for dinner. The good thing was the spaghetti FILLED ME UP and I made it the rest if the night with out snacking!! Oh and you know what? I still lost 1.1lbs!! Might not have pounds just falling off but they are still coming off! I am going to continue posting my food and exercise for accountability so I hope no one minds!e

So for today...

Breakfast: 2 eggs scrambled with mushrooms
Lunch: salmon filet stir fried with mushrooms and asparagus and balsamic vinegar
Snack: tortilla chips, small snow cone
Probiotics: 2 cups kefir
Dinner:spaghetti with meat sauce and garlic bread
2 cups coffee
8-8oz cups water

25 minutes on the wii fit. (step, garden run, bike, rhythmic Kung fu, ski jump and a couple others)

Weight: 256lbs

So I survived the first day. It was really hard I have to admit. It is crazy because the short version of the plan is Eat all of the lean protein and 'cleansing' veggies(most veggies fall in this area) then two servings of fruit and two servings of probiotics all you really have to watch/count ate the fruit and probiotics. Even though I swear I ate 2 lbs of chicken I was hungry. It totally makes sense though I am burning fuel in a different way and none of that bad stuff that just sits and keeps you full but yet you can't seem to stop eating! What ever the reason, I am down 3.3 pounds since yesterday so I will fought it out another day! My friends tell me by day four it will be easier so I am going to push through. After the first 17 day cycle I can add red meat back in so it will get easier, I hope.....

Since I am posting these updates in the am I believe I will update from the day prior except for morning weigh ins.

Breakfast: 2 egg omelet with mushrooms and tomatoes
Lunch: salad made with mixed baby frees, mushrooms, grape tomatoes, and tuna fish
Dinner: grilled chicken and asparagus
Probiotics: 2 servings strawberry kefir
Fruit: 2 apples
8 oz lemon water
12-8 oz glasses of water

C1D2 weight: 257

17 day diet...

So I am starting this 'lifestyle' change today following this_book by dr. Mike Moreno and featured on the show the Doctors.
It is based on 17 day cycles, I will go into more detail next time because my son has his 2 yr well check this morning but here are my stats so far....

Weight:261.5 (absolute highest weight EVER!) if it matters today is also day on of something else :X

Warm lemon water (gag) done
Breakfast: 2 eggs scrambled with mushrooms and grape tomatoes
Water: so far I have had 32 oz.

Exercise: 18 minutes on the wii. Advanced step, rhythmic boxing, island run and hula hoop. Yes, as a matter of fact my heart rate is up and I was sweating!! (for anyone how doesn't know about this plan, he actually only tells you to do 17 minutes of exercise in this beginning cycle-I am sure the more you do the more you will lose but o just wanted to be sure I got the min in before my busy day starts!)

Ok so off to shower and get kiddos ready......time to start the day!

Well I don't know for sure what day I am on....

Fourth of July really knocked me off course and I missed a few posts. So I will check the days for my next post title. Any who, I have done bad with food and o exercise during the time I was away so maybe it doesn't so much matter anyway.

Tray I did pretty good. I did have some toast with sprinkles but I actually got 2.02 miles in on my gazelle tonight so I am feeling pretty good right now. I am however really fighting the urge to go have a snack so that isn't so great. Maybe having typed that on here I will be able to resist the urge.

I haven some pretty serious family stuff going on and I wonder if that isn't leading to me wanting to sabotage. My bio father, no I am not adopted but he left my mother when I was barely 5 so even though I spent two weeks in the summer and every other holiday with him I really don't know him. Even those court forced visits have been over for a good 27 years. Well he decided to move from California to NC last September to be 'near the grandkids' but even in that time I can count on one hand the number of times we have seen them(he is married). They never called and asked us over and cranky I never thought to stop by with no invitation first. So long story even longer, a few months back my older sister who actually has a relationship with my dad and step mother god a job out of state and moved to Tennessee which prompted my bio and step to move back out west, which they were to do at the end of this month after our big 2 birthday party. So this past Friday m bio falls down the walkway at his apartment cracking his skull. While in the hospital he has a heart attack and ends up on a vent and unconscious. My step mother is beside herself. Out of his four kids o am the on physically nearest at the moment but emotionally the most detached. It isn't that I have I'll feelings towards the man, I just have no feelings. It is like they are just people I have recently met. Heck I am closer to many of my online only friends than I am with them but yet here it is. I have to be the one to be strong and help and possibly hold my step mothers hand next week when she may have to decide to pull the plug. They said if he doesn't come out of it on his own the discussion will have to be had.

I do feel bad for the step mother she is considerably younger than my bio dad, she has been with him since she was probably 22 or so(she is only 8 yrs older than me.). I honestly believe she will be fine on her own but she cant possibly believe that eight now, he is all she has ever known.

Anyway, so I am assuming I am going to try to eat my stress, I am very uncomfortable in this situation, but I am going to try to have will power. If you have read this far, say a prayer that this goes easy on my step mother and whatever happens that it is easy for my bio too. He may have never been there for me growing up but I don't wish suffering on anyone and it would be his wife that suffers anyway if he lingers.

Day 6,7 and 8

Well it is a Holiday weekend here in the Good Old USA.  Like most holiday weekends I have celebrated by what? EATING.  I really haven't don bad just not great.  I weigh today and once again I seem to be back to the 2.2 lb yo yo.  (up this time) I know my biggest problem right now is no exercise.  That will be my main focus this week...EXERCISE!!!
