The past three days (Phase 3) have been a continuation of the 500 calorie per day diet with no fat, carbs. sugars, taste, joy, happiness...oops...I mean, with restrictions! BUT, the results have been amazing. Day 38 I definitely pigged out a bit...I felt stuffed after both meals...and the weight gain was impressive: 1.5lbs. Well, with tear in eye, the motivation with also impressive to not be so weak! AND, the next two days saw 3.5lbs in weight loss!!!!!!!!!!!!! Of course, I was also a bit blocked up on day 38, but by day 39, the pipes were flowing like the Amazon Delta! Peeps, I reached my freakin' goal of ...
... 35lbs in weight loss!
I have to admit that I also caved in last night! After having to collect Jacquie on some random street corner about 9 o'clock last night after finally leaving work after a very long day (including completing a worker's comp audit...fun), we had to go collect her car from a towing yard! Yep, Jacque's was not a happy girl!!! And Kaluha chocolate was her saviour!!!! Pinot Grigio, my long lost friend, was my saviour!!!! After two small glasses, I was trashed!!!! People, cheap date here...get it whilst you can! I would have thought the Pinot would have added poundage, although my food calorie intake yesterday was very low (salad for dinner, and cabbage for lunch...woohoo).
Another amazing thing happened yesterday...vacation booked, baby!!! And a huge thanks to Hutchie for organizing the whole thing: Aboard the Connie from Amsterdam to Copenhagen to Berlin to Estonia to St. Petersburg to Helsinki to Stockholm and back to Amsterdam, with of course a quickie in London for a few days! Sorry Bryan, leaving in 10 days for a couple of weeks...try not to burn the gym down (although...heehee)! Now, the tricky-dickie part of this is to make sure my ass goes to the gym everyday while aboard, not to overeat, certainly not to over-drink, and to relax!!!! And, the weight should be steady!
Phase 4 starts today...no sugars or carbs for three more weeks!!!!! And for the record, I'm considering wine a fruit, not a sugar...sorta!
