Day 11 of the 17 day diet

Thursday, August 11, 2011

I would give my first born child for a cherry coke zero and a grande nachos from taco bell. WHY DOES MY BODY CRAVE JUNK???? I was just not in the mood for eating today. Everything I have is getting BORING. I crave change and new and different things! I can't seem to get satisfied! I ate chicken tonight and steamed up a bushel of zucchini, crooknecks and asparagus. I stuffed myself with the whole thing. Take that! Like it! Got a bunch of extra exercise today with 2 dog walks in addition to my 60min on the treadmill. That was nice.

But wait...I haven't told you the good news! I'm down one more pound! Only 3 to go! I can do 3 pounds in 6 days - piece of cake! (Mmmm...cake....) Must keep going...must not give up. This will be worth it!

Lastly - I read up on the second phase of the diet. I'm not really excited about it. My next 17 days will be just like the first, only every other day I get 2 servings of a pre-determined starch. I groaned the whole time I was reading it. But....I'm going to do it. After camping, I'll need to do something to get back on track! Oh - another add-on to the second phase...I get to eat lean pork and beef. Thats good - also shellfish. Sorry to say, I've been eating shellfish...well, fake crab which is not really shellfish and shrimp. I like to make my own rules.....

On a non- diet note - the dog I'm babysitting, Kiarra, woke me up in the middle of the night last night. She was in the livingroom growling like she was going to kill someone. I called her in to the bedroom to see what was wrong and she just went back out and kept growling. Scared me to death! I thought for sure someone had broken in to my house. So, despite the fact that I have a security system, I was prowling around my house in my nightie with my .38mm in my hand like some sort of dork. Once I saw no one was around I couldn't get back to sleep for a while. Dang it! Having kids again is rough!

So - hears hoping for another loss tomorrow. I'm feeling like it will be another maintain....just a premonition.....

Good night and good luck!

(PS - I do not have children so don't worry - I won't be selling them for fast food. :D)

    I have to say I'm impressed you are sticking with it. I am starting to have my doubts as to whether I can be that good. Last fall I went on Atkins and lost almost 40 lbs and went off as it was so restrictive but to be honest it sounds easier than this diet.
