Thursday, December 23rd 2010My weight was down to 183.75--not bad since I had a martini and an enormous rib eye steak for dinner! Although I went a bit overboard last night, I feel good this a.m., not bloated or yucky the way I sometimes do if I eat a boat load of potatoes, pasta, etc. One thing I did note is that liquor (gin) doesn't seem to spike my appetite the way wine does which is a good thing from a personal preference standpoint. Though I like wine, it is not generally my tipple of choice.
Wednesday, December 22nd 2010Wednesday, day 3. Weight = 185 1/4, but that was for my record-setting BM. Wow, I got to say that this diet certainly seems to promote regularity.
Tuesday, December 21st 2010So far this has been a most interesting diet. My weight is still up a bit from Sunday and yesterday, but it's down to 186 so it's moving in the right way and I expect it will go down even more by tomorrow.
Monday, December 20th 2010Today has been actually pretty easy so far. The meals are a little boring, but I think that's part of the trick. Nonetheless, I have felt pretty satisfied and NOT hungry. For breakfast I had eggs and beans w/ some left-over broccoli; lunch was tuna and beans and bean sprouts with some avocado. For dinner I'm going to make chili w/ beans (go figure) and onion. After dinner I'm going to have a glass of wine before bedtime and sit in front of the fire.
Sunday, December 19th 2010I love new diets!!! And this one is kinda new, so I'm going to take it for a trial run. I have to admit I like the idea of a "minimal exercise" diet. It's not that I don't like exercise, because I do; however, extended sessions in the gym just take too much time. The exercise sessions can all be done in fits and starts and generally take 35 minutes or less 2-3 times per week.
