I started the "Cabbage Soup" diet yesterday.
I've done this diet before, a loooooong time ago and it really worked.
But I am much different than I was back then.
The body and the willpower is much weaker and the fat cells have "grown" in strength
and in number.
So yesterday all I could have was fruit (except bananas) and the cabbage soup and water.
I can do this!
I love fruit and don't mind the cabbage soup.
I can do this!!
The morning was the hardest for me....I love me some coffee and
a little some'n some'n like pop tarts, muffins etc. to go with it.
So when I tried to take a bite of pineapple my taste buds went into retreat mode.
The organic Fuji apple made the cut for breakfast and I was okay.
I wish I liked cantaloupe or grapefruit but nooooo....that would be too easy.
So I made it to lunch.....was so ready for some cabbage soup.
10:45 is not too early for lunch is it????
I didn't think so!!!
So out came the soup and as a side I got some of those oranges or
are they tangerines...the ones they call "cuties".
Well I know why they call them "cuties"....
it's because it's so cute how Lisa can eat them in two bites!
Well really one bite but it ain't so cute when all the juice gushes out and runs
down your chin....
and your husband walks in and you're suppose to be working and you
can't answer the phone because your mouth is so full of orange...
(not that that happened or anything)
So I made it through the work day and I was almost home (a thirty minute drive)
and I almost wrecked when I realized that I left all of my cabbage soup
Oh nooooooooo.........only fruit for supper!!!! :(
By this time my head is pounding!!
I'm not sure if it's a caffeine headache or just lack of food headache.
I slowly trudge into the kitchen and just stare at the pineapple, grapes and oranges
and I try to eat some grapes and they were pretty sour
and then I found the most amazing fruit everrrrr!!!!!!!!!
2 pieces of toast!!
Headache went away immediately and I was my usual happy, happy self!
Today is all vegetable day.
I am sure that toast is considered a vegetable also....:)
Have a great day!!
