So apparently the 8 hr diet isn't for me! I weighed in this morning and was up 3.2 lbs. Shoot me now! Ughhhh!! I can't blame the diet entirely, I ate like shit this weekend but 3 lbs? REALLY?! Ugh!!! I don't really have a plan for this next week, I'm debating whether I should go sugar free, low carb, phase 2 of the 17 day diet or count calories but stay below 1200 cals. So far today I am doing great. I'm on my 4th bottle of water and I'm getting my exercise going back and forth to the bathroom haha. Had some sf oatmeal for breakfast and green beans with bacon bits and Parmesan cheese for lunch. My snack was mandarin oranges in no sugar juice. Maybe if I cut off a couple fingers I can lose the 3 lbs I put on ;) tomorrow is my official weigh in for the week, I'm praying for a miracle! In workout news, I was a lazy bum this weekend but forced myself to get on the treadmill last night. I walked at a moderate pace for 25 minutes while reading a Shape magazine. Today I made plans to start hitting the gym with a friend on Mondays and Fridays (those are the only 2 weekdays that work for me since I have to be out the door by 6:35a Tuesday through Thursday). Once hunting season is over I'm going to hit the gym on Saturdays too. Fun stuff. I always feel better when I work out :)


This was me after 5 days on the 17 day diet...for reals.

Weigh in day

Drumroll please! I weighed in this morning. I am down 4.6 lbs this week. Not bad considering I switched diets on Sunday after nearly starving to death. Aaaand I may or may not have had 2 margaritas and Mexican food for dinner on Saturday :/ I'm now doing the 8 hr diet. You can eat anything you want between 10a and 6p. Challenge accepted! I haven't cheated at all and I'm not starving which
is nice! I'm going to do this for a full week. Will keep you posted!


This pretty much says it all!

January Goals

I am choosing simple goals for this month to avoid getting burned out. Here it goes!

1. Stick to The 17 Day Diet and use my workbook daily.
2. Update my vanity book and look at it when I feel discouraged.
3. Track EVERYTHING I put in my mouth.
4. Exercise 2-3 times per week.
5. Lean on my support system!

Happy New Year Bitches!

My one and only resolution for 2013 is simple. NO MORE EXCUSES! I AM going to meet my weight loss goals. I AM going to be in shape and dammit, I WILL run a 5k! I am going to set monthly goals for myself so I can tweak them to fit my needs. For now, I leave you with this:
