SO I have read the book and I am ready to start the diet. I bought 5 days work of food. I made the soup last night, was going to make the dip but I forgot the buy lemons, will do that today. The recipes call for fresh herbs, the grocery stores seem to always be out of them, great. I made the soup last night, I made bulk so it will be lunch for the next several days. I am hoping this diet works as well as the doctor who wrote it says it will. If so I will keep doing it after it is over, just a lifestyle change. One of the things on the diet is salmon and scallions, we will see how the salmon works since I hate fish. The scallions never had them but I am willing to give them a try. They say it takes 27 times of eating something to acquire the taste for it, we will see. I hated the morning smoothie, but I will make it again tomorrow and gag the whole time drinking it, honestly it's not bad enough to gag while drinking it. My body is just being a big baby and just not taking the smoothie very well. The part I really love about this diet is the detox bath I get to take every night, soaking in a hot bath is so relaxing, but again that is the whole point. The bath is pretty simple, you get it as hot as you can stand, 2 cups of epsom salt, 1/2 cup baking soda, and 10 drops of lavender oil( honestly I use 20 drops). I think the 10 day detox book is one worth investing in, it gives you a lot of good information. I already knew the food companies made it where we craved food and wanted more and more. What these food companies dont want is people reading the book, or going vegan. After this diet I have really thought about going full fledged vegan and not going back to meat, unless its a special occasion, not sure, again meats are a bad addiction, they pump our meats full of hormones. I mean kids are starting to go through puberty at 9, I know a little girl that started her period at age 7, how said. I honestly believe its the foods we are feeding ourselves. Anyways I could go on and on about that subject, but that would be off topic. It's 9:35 and I am already hungry I left my nuts at the house by accident, so I have nothing to snack on. Lunch is at 11. I may have to drive down to the dollar store and buy my some nuts.

SO glad it is Friday. I can somewhat sleep in tomorrow. I have to be at work for the Biggest Loser weight in at 9:30am. Got a session with my trainer today. WHat makes me made is I am getting like 8 hrs a week at work, that is not going to pay for my sessions. So now I have to put a hold my going in April unless I can find a second job. I dont see how they think someone with kids can survive on 8 hr work weeks. That means I am going to struggle on buying groceries for awhile. I went to the gym yesterday and got a good workout, I was sweating really good. Left early due to work.

My arms are hurting this morning, my trainer worked me out yesterday. I got another session today and I will work out on my own tomorrow, then another session Friday. I am going to push myself a lot harder when I work out on my own. Since hiring a trainer I have realized I am not pushing myself like I should. I looked up Joe Cross on the internet and got some new juice recipes to make. I made a watermelon and strawberry juice this morning, it was good, to many strawberries. I have more juice for supper, the plan is chicken baked at supper. I bought a new book called 10-Day Detox Diet, it's a complete lifestyle change. I am reading it and will try it when I am finished reading it, it sounds like it is worth a try. I just hate when something that is considered a lifestyle change, a diet. I am not dieting, I am changing how I eat, I am eating healthier. SUre I am craving sweets, but I just say no and will continue to say know. I am getting natural sugars with my fruits. I do have almond milk ice cream bars and ice cream in the freezer, but I eat less than a 1/4 cup when I do eat it, it's good, but I just want to enjoy it.

SO I woke up super early and just laid in bed, I should have gotten up and worked out, but I was afraid of waking my daughter up. So I have gained a few pounds, nothing major, but shows I am not being active enough. Got my appointment with the personal trainer today, ready to have my butt worked off. He works me hard, which is what I need. Glad I dont work tonight, so I can take my bath of 1 cup Epsom salt, 1/2 cup baking soda, and 20 drops of lavender oil, it is soothing, but also a detoxing bath. I know the Epsom salt help with sore muscles. Made my juice this morning, got it down barely, I could taste the celery today. I am going to look up other recipes and see the different types of juices I can make. I bought a watermelon to juice, I think I will do that for supper. Juicing a watermelon is like having dessert for a meal, it is so good. I got to go buy so unflavored protein powder to put in my juice so I am getting protein, not wanting to loose my hair. SO my appointment went well yesterday, I am going to have a upper gi test done, the doctor want to make sure the band is where it is suppose to be. Then I am going to have a fill done with a fluoroscopic, if the band is still where it is suppose to be. He wants to fill the band to the fullest it can be, sounds good to me.

So I have started juicing for the week, on a good start so far. Got my appointment today with the baratric surgeon. I have thought about getting the gastric sleeve done, but I think I have decided not to. Instead I am hoping we can find a solution to my problems with my lap band. I have been doing fine on losing weight, so I dont think another surgery is what is best. I am giving my personal trainer a chance to help me out. I have to just force myself to drink a lot of water in a day, that has been something I suck at. I do like the fact my I am buying smaller clothes and my clothes I havent been able to wear in years are fitting again. Weight loss is a good feeling.
