Grapefruit Diet? Wait, you mean only eat a grapefruit for each meal?
No no no, silly. Eat ½ a grapefruit before each meal. Trust me it works!
Yea… not sure if I’m ready to jump on that train just yet. Pretty sure the last grapefruit diet left the station about 15 years ago and hasn’t come back. It crashed and burned.
Something very traumatic happened to me last week.
My husband swears it was due to my outfit.
Scene: I was at my sister’s house last week hanging out with the kiddos. Christian is my 6 year old nephew.
Christian: Auntie Des are you having a baby?
Auntie Des: No! I’m not having a baby.
Christian: Oh well it looks like it. (Pats me on mystomach.)
Wow! If that’s not a sign to lose weight then I don’t know what is!
I was super bummed.
My outfit was a white cami with a black cardigan that I wore openand then a chunky black belt around my waist. My husband thinks that the belt made the fabric around my stomach pooch out and look like a “baby bump”.
I disagree. I think the little fella is on to something. No! I’m not preggers but I have gained weight. I can tell and I don’t like it. Not one bit.
But, excuses being excuses as they are, I’m stuck in a rut.
I only follow through with workouts during the week if they are in the morning before work but on the same token I can hardly ever pull myself out of bed more than three days a week for an early am workout.
I used to be so so so dedicated. Gym no matter what. I found the time and the way.
That’s for sure.
Anyway my friend and I are planning on doing a “challenge”. She sells Herbalife, for those who may not know, Herbalife is a shake mix and you replace your meals with it.
So when our shake mix comes in we will do the following:
Take photo of ourselves on the scale to send to one another
Drink 2 shakes per day with the general understanding that we can’t pig out on our “food” meal
5 days per week we get some form of physical activity
Whoever loses the highest % of weight in 2 weeks gets to choose punishment for the loser.
Now, I’m all about learning to control your weight with “Real”food but right now what I need is a good kick in the pants and I think this challenge will do that for me.
Another interesting thing happened to me. My friend’s softball team needed another member so I signed up. What was I thinking!! I have no clue how to play and the bat tried to eat my hand off. Seriously. I would show you a picture but it’s disgusting. I am having a lot of anxiety about it. I almost just told her never mind after I went to the first practice. BUT I hate being a quitter or quitting on someone when I’ve already committed myself.
So we’ll see how that goes.
School! Ahhhhhhhhhhh!!! I’m going insane!! It’s almost over It’s almost over It’s almost over
I just have to make through one more week. Just one more week.
It is very uncomfortable and especially when it happens to your dominate hand.
