Oh My Goodness....My life has been SO hectic lately. For those of you on twitter, you know I've been MIA. I barely have time to catch up on a few blogs a night; let alone tweet throughout the day. But it's good- I've been so busy with work and it's been so great. Busy = Money for me! I don't get paid commission or anything, but as long as I'm working, I get to keep my job and keep moving. So I say YES to being busy and getting the job done! I love working. :)
Ok, my diet. I have had 3.5 perfect days on Fat Flush. Yes, today I broke; we all knew it was going to happen eventually. Here's the thing though- I don't feel bad about it. But I'll get to that in a second. Let me start with what happened. I went to the bridal shower totally prepared- had dinner before hand, had my gum in my mouth, came an hour late (so I missed the dinner) because I was actually so busy with work I couldn't get away to make it on time...but someone still got me! Peer pressure- it's a joke! I shouldn't have caved, but I did. Oh well, life happens sometimes...doesn't it?
So here's what happened...I snuck in the back about an hour late and found a seat next to a dear woman in my church. Well, she made the trifle. The chocolate trifle. The heavenly fabulously looking trifle on the table of treats behind me, that I was not making eye contact with. I've actually been doing so awesome on this diet that after the first 2 days I haven't had any cravings and have gained a lot strength in saying no. I want to do good on this Fat Flush, you know? That's a first for me. But she still got to me. With my gum in my mouth, I looked at all the desserts on the table and turned back to the beautiful bride- not even an inch of desire in my heart.
"Diz...have you tried the trifle? I made it. And my daughter made the cupcakes...which are to. die. for. You've simply GOT to try one."
"Really? You made the trifle? It looks heavenly. But I'm stuffed. It looks so delish though, you did a fabulous job on it. Simply gorgeous."
"Oh girl, just try a little bite. And a strawberry cupcake. My daughter blew my mind with these cupcakes. You have to have one. Here. And here's some of the trifle. No no, don't put it down, just give it a little taste."
And with that, I was done. It was the best friggin trifle I've ever had, seriously. But here's the thing. I didn't just "fall off the wagon"...I actually controlled myself (somewhat). I had one small try of the trifle, and one small cupcake. And then I sampled the soup and the salad (cause they just looked too good NOT to try, esp since I was off the wagon). I didn't go ballistic, it was more of sampling tonight. Yes, most of the weight I've lost so far is only water weight. But I'll take it! I don't feel bad. Plus, I'm feeling super strong- still. Tomorrow I'm going to get up and get back on the wagon. Usually at this point I give up until weigh in. But I'm ready to get back on the wagon tomorrow. I've been seeing such great results with this Fat Flush that I'm really motivated right now to keep on truckin. So I had some trifle and a cuppie. NBD. I haven't had sugar in 4 days and I've been doing so good, that I'm ok with this little treat of the night.
Speaking of the FF- my body feels so good lately. I mean, seriously good. I wake up refreshed and energized in the mornings, I have a ton of energy to work out and do my job, and I'm not tired...until it's time to crash at night. Of course, I had a bunch of sugar tonight, so I'm not tired now. But I'm really happy with the way things are going and I hope to keep it up!! I really hope I can stay strong because I'm starting to think I might make this diet more of my natural eating habit. If I can do it for the two weeks, and then add in the stuff that's been taken out (occasionally), I think it's a super healthy way to take care of my body and make a permanent eating habit. The foods are delicious, my body feels great...why not?
Aight- off to bed. Good luck with the weekend fellow travelers! I love you all and am TRYING so hard to get to your blogs to catch up! Loves! xoxo-
