Day 17

Holy crap. Only four, quatro, uno less than five, the fantastic four days left!!! This is how I feel, not too many quick movements, but close enough to get excited!

Tonight for dinner I had steak fajitas with peppers and onions, totally hit the spot.  But that sour cream was bullying me to take some, I have to shamefully say, I declined! You were worried, ya me too. Being this far into what seems like a giant commitment feels like quite the feat.  Every time someone says they can’t do it I want to shaken-baby-syndrome them and say YES YOU CAN.  If my french fry eating, cheese dip loving, diet coke drinking butt can do it, so can anyone.  21 Days out of a lifetime, pssh that’s nothing.

On a unrelated topic, I’m liking this whole blogging thing. Wouldn’t it be awesome to get paid to do this?  I love writing with a personal flair.  It’s nice to have something to look forward to, knowing there’s a place for my utterly charming and awe inspiring chains of thoughts that make the masses flock to me and praise my skills.  Oh a girl can dream!

I will admit to writer’s block, well not really writers block, but monotony in my food choices and just going to work everyday leaves me with fewer and fewer anecdotes. I try to talk about my past experiences and current thoughts, which at this point are in rotation.  I think about the food I’m going to eat after the detox (cookies), the food I have to continue to eat on the detox, the success of staying on the detox, and my boyfrannn.  This weekend will be my first weekend going out to eat as I’m going out of town to see my man. You’ll hear all about it, don’t worry.

It’s almost Friday!

On to day 18.

Day 16

I’ve been thinking a lot about post-detox eating.  As you can guess, cookies are on the menu, but besides the cravings I wonder how it will be.  I’ve been warned that eating carbs again will make me bloat like none other!  I’m not totally worried that it will be that bad, I assume it would be water weight.  After a few days of eating right but including carbs I could get back to where I’m losing again.  I’m actually interested to know how the first indulgence will go.  Will I think even my favorite cookies are too sweet?  Will I only want to eat one? (Doubtful) Will I not be able to eat as much carby food at first?  I am very excited for carbs but I need to tread lightly at first.  Then I can dive-in.

Don’t get me wrong though, I DO NOT plan on falling off the wagon completely.  I will have my treats and social non-dieting weekends, enjoy everything.  Then every other day of the week I will check my carbs, check my calories, and make sure that I’m still losing at a slow and steady pace.  I have a long way to go and I will get there.  The sugar detox is a nice booster and I will take a lot that I learned with me. But it’s not sustainable for a long period of time, at least for me.  I will try my best to eat low carb any day I’m not in a social situation or celebrating little wins. I really believe in the calories in versus calories out and that’s what I’m going to stick to!

Day 14

Guys, everyone loved the Banola!! Even me.  It dried more over night and got so much better!  It’s actually delicious and totally addicting.  I can’t get enough.  We had a St. Patricks Day salad bar with all green toppings to be detox friendly instead of boxes of green icing topped cookies and cakes! (Although that sounds like yes please).  We played Bingo and got to wear hats, it was a fun day!  I brought left over meatballs to put on my salad and my own balsamic vinaigrette from the book. It was yummy and I took a picture, duh!


Being a 2/3rds of the way through is very surreal.  It seems like just yesterday I was struggling to figure out what to write, oh wait, that was yesterday. But my very first blog post, my very first pictures, my very first pun attempt, my very first pun success, it all seems like the end was so far yet it’s so close!  I’m really excited for the next week; I’ll be glad it’s over, but also happy that I did something with this much determination for 21 days.  Everyone I tell about it thinks that I am crazy for doing it, they could never do it!  I tell them it’s not so hard, but they don’t think so.  One of my least favorite phrases is “on my weightloss journey,” but that’s the most concise way to describe it.  I’m going to hit my 50lbs loss mark from the beginning of my “weightloss journey” this week and I’ve never been happier with the control I have over my body.  I love my body in any shape or weight but it’s so so nice to know exactly what I need to do to lose weight.  I can have holidays and celebrations, but know exactly the types of foods I should eat to get back on track.  It’s a really great feeling.  I can control my cravings as long as I have a reward upon the horizon!

I have cookies on the horizon.

On day to 15.
