This gum is killing me.

Well, I spend all my free time scouring recipes on the internet now.  I actually enjoy looking at all the food options out there and trying to figure out if it will work with my Fat Flush plan or not.  I went shopping today and spent almost $100 buying food.  I'm not even sure what I bought, but I promise you it's all healthy!  Healthy eating is so expensive, gag.  I should've taken a picture of my cart though- it was full of items that were so healthy and so delicious, you might get me confused with Christine Avanti.  And even though I'm missing sugar like crazy, I know it's going to be okay.  I kind of like the pain...or at least that's what I tell myself.  :)

Today is kind of a hard, and kind of an easy day.  Hard because I feel like crap is leaving my system and my system is kind of wanting more.  I miss sugar pretty badly today- and nothing seems to suffice.  I'm chewing an old piece of gum right now that has lost all of it's flavor, but is the closest thing to a 'treat' I can have while detoxing.  I wonder if I'm going to look younger once the sugar is out of my system. :)  Haha, I know that sounds crazy, but I was thinking about it while at the store today in the check out lane.  I was watching the lady in front of me, and I just kept wondering to myself- if sugar is hard on the body...does your body show that hardness over time?  I would assume so.  But now I'm off on a tangent; sorry.

Today is easy because I have delicious meals planned.  I'm so excited to try a peach smoothie tomorrow for breakfast that I can't wait.  Will it taste like a peach milkshake?  That's what I keep imagining, but I doubt it.  But it should still be yummy.  Tonight for dinner I'm having turkey burgers (minus the bread- obvi) with tomato slices and some grilled veggies on the side.  HEAVEN!  Have I ever told you that my roommate makes the best turkey patties/burgers alive?  I am super excited about dinner.

I am also going to spinning tonight, and working out with the crossfit trainer before the spin class.  While I can't necessarily see a difference yet, I feel the difference.  I'm working out hard, I'm eating healthy, and my system is starting to finally clean out a little.  I can't wait til Monday to weigh in and see what the difference is..

How are you guys doing?


  1. Woohoo, you! Sounds like you're on a roll! :D Deb

  2. I have really enjoyed looking through your blog today. I found you through another blog. I'll be back to read. It looks like you & I have a lot in common.

  3. When I gave up sugar I was dependent on gum for a while. Orbit is the only kind that doesn't hurt my jaw and I LOVE the sweet mint flavor.

    You are doing so well! Just keep on keepin' on and it will only get easier. I promise.

    Your dinner sounds dreamy... would your roommate be willing to tell us how she makes those turkey burgers so good?

  4. Not sure if you follow her or not but TJ has all sorts of recipies and good eats on her blog. Check it out if you haven't

  5. Go Team Diz! Flush the fat! Flush the fat! Sugar out, healthy foods in! Flush, flush, flush. Turkey burgers in, sugar out!

    Enjoy your spin!

  6. Sounds great Diz. Can't wait to see what the scales say, yet no matter what they say, what you're doing has to be good for you (*_*)

  7. Nice; I might have to check into this fat flush thing; how long do you have to committ to it?
