Today is the day I have been looking forward to and dreading for a few weeks now. On one hand, I was excited because my kids went back to school!!! I can’t tell you how exciting that was. Don’t get me wrong, I love my kids and enjoyed (for the most part) the time they spent at home…when they weren’t fighting (constantly) or sitting on their bums expecting to play a video game all day (not happening). But, this mommy needs the break that school gives me sometimes.
As weird as it may sound, I’ve also been kind of looking forward to starting my diet today too….but dreading it at the same time, if that makes sense. I have about 100 pounds to lose and I know it won’t be easy. But I am sooooo ready to get this weight off and get back in shape! I know I will feel better soon. Wouldn’t it figure though…that I have been sick most of the day today. I wasn’t worshiping the porcelain god or anything, but close enough! And funny thing is, I think it’s my body’s way of ridding itself of all the bad stuff…because this happened the last time I started this diet (well, the day before really). I know some people take a colon cleansor when they start a new diet…but my body seems to just do it naturally! And…I won’t lie; it may have something to do with all the bad junk I stuffed myself with over the weekend.
I’m actually feeling a little better now, and even though I’ve felt like crap today, I’ve stuck with my diet so far except for skipping breakfast (shouldn’t have done that). Wish me luck! The next 17 days will be very hard (I’m cutting out all sugar, red meat, etc. My diet will consist of lean proteins, vegetables, certain fruits (apples, oranges), poultry and yogurt. Basically? I’ll be eating alot of fish, chicken and rabbit food. I’m already looking forward to the second cycle in the diet (the second 17 days where you can add in more food such as lean meat and potatoes!). Might want to pray for my family too…I’m going to be absolutely lovely to live with for the next few days (it will feel like I’m PMSing).
