REBOOTING

Shooting for 21 days again starting tomorrow. The past week + 1 day was a disaster food wise. I just took off completely from any rules and regulations. I will say it involved extreme consumption, no exaggeration. I just fell off the wagon HARD. At least if I reel it in after 8 days (and not 8 month...

switching to black coffee? anyone done it?

Some people are lucky enough to just have a natural preference for black coffee and have drank it that way all their life. So many benefits to this -- it's zero calories, you can "taste" the coffee, you don't have to rely on artificial things like powdered creamers. I've always loaded my coffee up w...

day fourteen

FAILURE

I had dessert at dinner -- it was a birthday dinner for a friend.
red bean crepe.

However, this failure was a positive one. Usually when I have one of those tiny restaurant desserts the first thing I want to do is go out and eat MORE sugar. But I didn't do that.

Re: Day 5 and QUESTIONS!! (about snacks/fake sugar)

First off, congrats on getting started on a healthier you. My take on it is don't try to do a perfect program all once. It's too much to ask for. I think it's fine to have a pudding as part of your meal since it's not inbetween, it's still part of your meal. I also think it's fine to use Splenda and...

But darn it -- if we can get bummed over gaining due to water weight, we can sure as heck be psyched about losing to water wei...

I had remarked in an earlier post that I was feeling a little bloated, so -- without getting overly crazy about -- I decided to do a "detox" for 24 hours.

It is the BEST yogurt. And fiber one is really a good way to bulk up and make things filling! More over, I ENJOY it.
