This week I:
- Did a cleanse
- Ate vegan
- Practiced yoga
I’m such a cliché. The only thing missing is an Om tattoo. I have to admit, I feel pretty good. Happy Friday friends!
I’m cleansing you guys. I scoured the Internet until I found a doable detox program and the Four Elements Cleanse seems doable. I’ll eat high fiber fruits, veggies and grains and drink a mixture of apple cider vinegar, lemon juice and cayenne pepper for the next 7-10 days. Easy peasy. Except I make everything extra difficult for myself. I overindulged this weekend so I’m starting off puffier than usual and craving a pretzel like a mofo.
It’s been three hours. I have a headache. I want a cup of coffee. I’m gagging over the detox drink. I’ll let you know how I’m feeling in a few days. Happy Monday!
Christian Dior’s 2013 resort collection is exactly perfect isn’t it?
In other news, I need to do a cleanse you guys. My last
failed attempt was 4 days on the Master Cleanse before I wanted to eat Poppy. So this time, I need some kind of detox that allows food. No juice bullshit. Any and all suggestions are appreciated.
I figure I got another couple of years before I say goodbye to the bikini so I may as well get it out of my system and go wild this summer. We’re going to Palm Springs in a few weeks, hence “Operation Look Less Bloated” so this acts as a motivation for me to stay off the alcohol until then.
It occurred to me that I haven’t done a recipe post this week, which is ridiculous since food is all I can think about. We had this rosemary potato fritatta for brunch prior to my deprivation diet and I just never got around to sharing. I used this recipe, but left out the cream. Oh how I long for a potato.
It’s been nearly two weeks since Operation Fiji Body and I’ve been pretty good — mostly stayed away from carbs except that one night; mostly stayed away from alcohol except red wine; and mostly worked out other than that one weekend. Do I feel skinnier? Eh…My mom mentioned something about my chin looking leaner, but she’s obligated.
I should probably also confess that I haven’t weighed myself once since starting this diet. When I’m really unhappy with my weight (which I currently am), the number is too depressing. Instead I’m keeping track based on how my clothes fit, which works pretty well for me. My clothes fit a tiny fraction better than before. I have two more weeks to turn that fraction into a whole.
Don’t forget to enter my giveaway!
The minute I claim to be on a diet, I start obsessing about food. This annoys the Husband because then he starts obsessing about food. So to distract ourselves from obsessing about food we went swimsuit shopping. It was a horrifying experience you guys, but the activity served its purpose. We had almonds for dinner.
Recipe as follows:
1 bag of unsalted, raw almonds
1 small palm
1 pretty plate
Put your palm into bag, grab a small fistful of almonds and scatter onto plate. Eat one by one. They last longer that way.
Okay, I lied. We also ate some vegetables and soy protein. We’re not completely insane.
Operation Fiji body was launched last night at 6:35 pacific time. That’s when I went for a two mile run followed by an hour of Pilates On Demand and Buns of Steel on VHS (yes, we still have a VHS for this exact reason). I’m tempted to start revealing my daily food intake and exercise plan on this blog to keep me honest, but I’m afraid you’ll judge me when I accidently eat a baguette one day. Like maybe today.
I had the week from hell at work and it’s supposed to rain this weekend so I want to do everything in my power to forget about my day job and just curl up on the couch with the Husband and the animals. Also, I’m going to create a thinspiration board with pictures of models in bikinis to keep me motivated. You must think I’m shallow. I won’t deny it. Blame it on swimsuit season.
