"Trim the Fat" Thursday

Goals last week:

1. Drink 4 glasses of water a day. Did it!
2. Take vitamins everyday. Did it!
3. Do 20 minutes of exercise 2 days a week. Sorta.
4. Start the 4 day jump start on Monday. DID IT!

Let's talk a little about the FBD 4 day jumpstart...

Part of it is drinking "Sassy Water". If you are going to try this diet DO NOT TRY this water. It sucked major ass. MAJOR.

I bought everything that was called for (mint leaves, cucumbers, lemons & ginger) made it up & then ended up throwing it out after one glass. Since then I've been drinking 2 liters of water everyday PLAIN or with lemon, but certainly NOT sassy.


The other bad things (for me) was eating a pint of tomatoes. I got about halfway through and thought I would hurl, so yesterday I ate till I was full instead of forcing myself to eat the whole pint. That worked so much better for me.

Other than those small issues, I didn't like the blandness of the food. BUT I know it was part of the jumpstart and not true of the other foods/recipes on the Flat Belly Diet. If you are like me & used to salt/pepper then make sure you pick up a bottle of Mrs. Dash. It was a lifesaver!

Today is my last day of the jumpstart and I'm proud to say that I did not cheat. Even with all my hormonal issues this week, I resisted temptation. It was tough to watch the guys eat cheeseburgers & taco salads while I had a HALF** a piece of chicken w/ rice & green beans, sans butter, salt or pepper.

**Yes, I said HALF. A serving size of protein should be 3 ounces, while a typical chicken breast is 6-7 ounces. Crazy huh.

Even crazier is that I was full after eating each meal. That just goes to show you that I was overeating like MAD.

Three days into the FBD and I've lost about 2 pounds & 1/2 inch @ the boobs, the hips & the muffin top. Not too shabby for three days of effort and NO extra exercise.

So this week my goals are:

1. Drink 4 glasses of water a day.
2. Take vitamins everyday.
3. Do 20 minutes of exercise 2 days a week.
4. Continue FBD's 28-day plan.

How did you do this week?

Oh come on you wuss! If your niece can devour pintS of tomatoes you can too! lol

Good job! Proud of you... I need to start doing something, being around food all day is not helping matters. I had lost 7 lbs when whats his face left, but I have gained it back, or at least that's what the doc's scale said the other day.

Angie's Spot said...

Amen to "down with Sassy Water"! It definitely DOES suck major ass.

I am so so so proud of you for not cheating!! That is way impressive. You are doing such a great job with your goals and deserve accolades. Keep it up and you'll be surprised how working in even just a little exercise will help those lbs come right off. I just got back from my date with treadmill and am feeling famished. I think I'll go eat some grape tomatoes. LOL!
