C1D7 - I quit.
Well, after a whole week of following the plan one hundred percent, I’ve decided to give up. From what I’ve heard, people lose 3-5 pounds in their first week. I have lost a grand total of 0.6lbs, which is insanely disappointing. I mean, the week... Read more
C1D5 - Confession
It’s day five, and I have something to admit. I know I said I’d wait until the entire cycle was over before weighing myself, but I’ve been hearing how great everyone has been doing a few days in (some losing 5 pounds!) and I just wanted to see i... Read more
I’m on day 4! Can you believe it? What’s even more unbelievable is that I haven’t cheated once, nor have I once sat down to a plate containing a chicken breast and a big pile of veggies (which was what I feared I would eat every day, twice a day... Read more
I survived day one of the 17 Day Diet! It really wasn’t bad at all. I saved a protein-rich snack for the evening, and that satisfied me. I didn’t go hungry! I did feel a little funny after lunch, but I think it’s because of eating so much chicke... Read more
17DD - C1D1
Today is day one! Things have been going stupendously well… Much better than anticipated. I don’t even know why I expected to have a hard time with it, since the eating plan is very close to what I was eating every day anyways. I know I will sta... Read more
Last day before 17DD
I thought I’d try and squeeze in a quick blog entry during my very busy Sunday. Weekends go by way too fast. I find that I have to get everything ready for the week on Sundays, and it just sucks one of my days right up. I have to find more time ... Read more
Finally Friday! I don’t really have anything exciting planned for this weekend, other than relaxing a whole lot. Tonight is my “me” time. I plan on coming home, cooking some chicken breasts on the BBQ (weather permitting), maybe cleaning my room... Read more
WARNING: I haven’t had my coffee yet.
Wow, it’s Thursday already. I am counting down the weeks of my work term and after tomorrow; I’ll have 13 weeks left. I can’t wait to get back to school. Crazy, huh? It’ll be my last year to enjoy a ... Read more
What a great week I’ve been having! Being in less pain every day is making such a huge difference in my life. I knew the pain was bringing me down, but I never realized just how much. The pain isn’t completely gone. My back still aches constantl... Read more
It’s Tuesday, and I’m cheerful! The sun is shining, it’s not too humid, and I’m wearing a cute outfit. What more could I ask for? I even got to sleep in a little and still managed to get my hair done and put some earrings on (usually those thing... Read more
Three quotes, and a few thoughts…
“Whether you think you can or can’t, you’re right.” – Henry Ford
How true. A positive attitude will make all the difference in each of our journeys. When we feel as though we will fail anyway, we... Read more
Oh Monday, How I Loathe Thee
My first blog post today was basically to try and gather advice on the 17 day diet. This will be my normal venting/updating type of post.
Last week was intense. I had two days of training (Thursday and Friday) on Canada-US Relations. I thou... Read more
17 Day Diet
This morning, I weighed in and gained another two pounds. Shoot me now. I expected it, and I full-on deserve it. I just don’t like it. AT ALL. Summer is coming fast, and I’m scared. I need to start doing something, so after hearing about a cowor... Read more
It's already Wednesday!
Yesterday was a good food day. For the first time since tracking again, I was actually within my calorie range. I guess it goes to show how much I had gotten away from my healthy portions. The winning strategy was not snacking at nighttime. Man,... Read more
No Shoes Tuesday
Good Tuesday everyone!
What a morning… I almost left the house for work this morning without my shoes on. What a great way to start the day. I’m so exhausted. It’s my own fault really. Two nights this weekend, I only got home at 6am. I was ... Read more
