Cycle One in the Bag!

Today is day 7 of Cycle 1 on my Extreme Fat Smash diet which means I am on the last day of the detox phase. I have done unbelievably well this week! I didn't cheat once! I'm not going to lie, I've been having cravings like a mad woman, but I have never once given in. Even when faced with all kinds of yummy food at school and on tv. I'm not supposed to weigh myself until the 10th day but I just couldn't wait because I could feel that I had lost some weight. So when I got on the scale, to my surprise, I had lost 5 lbs in 6 days!!! I was so excited and it gave me the motivation I needed. I only worked-out one day this whole week because I was lacking in the motivation department but today I got the fever!! If I had worked out more I'm sure I would have lost at least a couple more pounds but now that I'm motivated, cycle 2 should be great! I'm taking boxing and kickboxing classes and my first went really well. I mean, I lost my energy half-way because I'm so out-of-shape, but it still felt good just to be there moving and doing something. I kept up pretty well. So tomorrow I will start cycle 2 and I look forward to my next weigh-in. 5lbs down and 45 more to go!!

More Confessions to Our Lady of Weightloss

Dear Lady of Weightloss,

I've been bad, really bad. The first three days of my Extreme Fast Smash were good. I was hungry, but I stuck to the plan. The fourth day I went to a birthday party and totally blew it. I haven't gotten back on the plan since but I'm not giving up. I'm going to have another go at it starting tomorrow. I'm also starting a kick-boxing class tomorrow. I need some serious will power. The season for parties and bbq's is just about here and I need to be strong. Sunday I am going wine-tasting for a friends birthday and I'm only going to allow myself a few sips. No cheese and I'll probably pack some carrot sticks. Any tips and tricks would be greatly appreciated!

Confessions to Our Lady of Weightloss

Dear Lady of Weightloss,

I didn't start my Extreme Fat Smash lifestyle change yesterday like I was supposed to. I didn't have a chance to make it to the grocery store until today after school. But I did empty out my cupboards and refrigerator of all that is unhealthy and have purged my system of all the gooey stuff that was stuck to my intestines. Does that count? I've also been having Jamba Juice smoothies (Jamba light, less than 200 calories for 16 ozs!!) to get in my serving of fruits and fiber. I think it's a start. Tomorrow will be the official beginning of my new lifestyle. Wish me luck! Now if I could only get my ass to the gym............
