On Day 5 of 17 Day Diet

Monday, January 06, 2014

And I fell off the face of the earth AGAIN. The end of 2013 totally and completely kicked my behind for sooo many reasons, and I let myself get caught up in some pretty horrific emotional eating, on top of holiday eating. The result was not good at all. By New Year's Eve, I felt (um, and looked) about 4 months pregnant. Granted, I had gone on a huge grain/sugar binge the prior weekend, so what did I expect, really??

Anyway, decided actually mid-gluttonous phase that a detox was in high order, so I began the 17 Day Diet on January 2. It's incredibly boring, but doable. I've been a little cranky on account of quitting sugar & grains cold turkey, but just 5 days in I feel sooooo much better. The bloating is GONE, and my knees are pain free (as if I needed YET MORE CONVINCING that gluten is my kryptonite).

I still do not weigh myself, and honestly am just going 100% based on how I'm feeling, and how my clothes are fitting. It was just time to pull my act together (yet again). Getting in front of people and expecting them to pay me to teach a physical fitness class....well, I owe it to them to walk the walk.

Also, not gonna lie, going on our big Bahamas vacation in 63 days, so um, I'd like to FIT into my bikini because I don't have the time, energy, patience or money to go through the whole swimsuit-finding debacle yet again. If I can't knock a little weight off, I'll have no choice but to go topless! ARRRRRRRRRRGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!
!!!!!!!!!!!! NOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I can so relate. I feel so much better on plan and am not sure why I don't stay on it. Gluten makes me ill.

    Topless????!!! HAHAHA! emoticon If that was on the line, I'd be VERY motivated to shed a few LBS! LOL

    So glad you are back, and that the new plan is working for you (as it has so many times before! :)

    63 days... 2 months and a bit! You can definitely do some serious revamping to your physique in that time! You got this!
