"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?
