Day Four


So this is day four of my radical crash “diet”. Hell week is halfway over and I’m feeling really good! I’m actually down 5 or 6 lbs. and I can’t believe how much stronger I feel. I’m more agile, more energetic, emotionally pumped and feel like I have a portion of my sense of humour back. I don’t feel like I’m slowly dying every day- I feel like I’m on the right track.

Day one, I was only allowed to eat fruits. 
Day two- vegetables. 
Day three- fruits and vegetables.
Today, Brianna, J, and I went to Outback Steakhouse and I stuck with my glass of wine and house salad. I’m not going to punish myself if I have fattening salad dressing. My common sense tells me that I’ll balance things out if I go pump out a mile at the track. So…

although it’s freezing cold outside, and pitch dark, J & I are headed out on a brandy walk. A brandy walk is pounding out a mile at the track, and then relaxing with a few shots as a reward. I do feel a bit more disciplined than I did a week ago. I have boundaries that I can’t cross, and I appreciate them. 

When I get back, I have to down some Dragon’s Blood along with a hard 20 minute workout on my abs and 10 minutes on the Gazelle. Nothing is over the top- it’s all in moderation- I’m not in a race. It’s a lifestyle change, and it’s a gradual process.

But I see differences already. And I’m stoked. 🙂

Off to the trak…

    • Good for you! Remember, if you fall off the wagon, simply get back up (shake off the dust) and get back on it. 😉 Failure is almost always part of success. I’m learning to not punish myself when I fall down. I wish you all the best, Joycelyn- I know you can do it. 🙂 xo

  2. I really like the photo of the leaf on the glass. Also, the brandy walk sounds delightful. I may have to give that a try.
