I'm on day three of my diet and in an effort to shame myself into sticking with it I'm going to record my slips here.
On Thursday, I had to go home from work because I was having stomach pains. I thought I was going to get what I gingerly call "stomach sick." But! I didn't break my diet... I did however take a pain killer. Which I do not like to do. I'm not a big believer in the safety of over-the-counter drugs.
On Friday, at about the same time as Monday I got those pesky stomach pains again, so I ate a Tootsie Pop. That did the trick so I will be including them in my work lunch for now on just in case. I don't like missing work for any reason, even if I am sick.
Today (Saturday), I ate a hot dog on wheat bread and two slices of grape fruit. I skipped the mini rice cakes and the orange. (Why only a few slivers of grape fruit and no orange? Because I managed to cut my thumb on my peeling hand.) I'm not feeling bad about the hot dog because I walked 1.2 miles to HR Block today.
According to the scale at work, I've lost 4 lbs this week. My stomach feels tighter. I'm pretty happy with this so far.
In other news:
I'm getting back an amazing tax return from 2010 and filing an ammendment for 2009. This means I'll have over ... wait for it... $5000.00 to move with in my bank account alone by April.
If everything goes to plan Jared and I will be living in Minneapolis April 1st; I will be 20 pounds lighter (3 lbs a week for 7 weeks); we'll get jobs and then a puppy!
Living the dream.
