I have been doing the HCG Diet now for 21 days and really love it. I was incredibly diligent the first 13 days and then I had my anniversary. So last Sunday I went to a nice restaruant with my hubby and decided to throw my cares to the wind and just enjoy my dinner. You can read more about how care free I was on my blog here: http://www.lifechanginghcgdiet.com.
Pre-Cursor to An Apple Day
Anyhow…that kicked off a 6 day stretch of days with minor failures, which resulted in me going to the clinic and finding that I had not lost (or gained…phew!) a single ounce. I go to the Slim Xpress clinic every Saturday, so Saturday I left feeling motivated to restart and refocus (I will tell you more about that later). Anyhow…weekends seem to be insanely hard for me if I am just staying at home so Saturday AND Sunday I ate food that was on the diet…but too much of it. Ok, Ok….I definitely cheated because I ate one of the bars I had gotten from Slim Xpress…I am only supposed to have half…IF I am in ketosis and I ate the whole thing…not in ketosis I am blaming part of this on PMS…but I know the truth is that it is my lack of willpower.
Monday I woke up with a spring in my step, ready to get back on track. I made 2 boiled eggs and put some homemade salsa in a bowl and headed to work. I drank a lot of water, ate my lunch and came home STARVING for dinner (definitely the PMS…this is the first time I have felt hungry on this diet). I was waiting for my husband to make me dinner…but it was taking soooo long, so stupid me goes for a bar again. Failure….utter failure. I ate grille chicken for dinner and went to bed knowing that allllll my actions have been a precursor to an Apple Day.
What is an apple day?….it was today….and it was a punishment day that is supposed to get me back on track. The plan for this day was to eat 6 apples…and only 6 apples. I had a busy day and wasn’t going to get home until 10 so this was a good day to do it.
I don’t love apples, but I got 2 of the 6 down. So I am hoping to be back on track. No more diverting. I am going to 50 pounds lighter in 2 months…I am committed!
To anyone thinking about doing this diet…it is AMAZING. I feel so in control of my results and rarely feel hungry. Only 13 pounds down but I feel like a major lifechange has already begun.
