Myth busted!!!!

My hubby lost a total of 7lbs on this '3 day military diet' & I lost a total of 5lbs!!

So, it DOES work... now the trick will be to eat normally and yet rewire our brains to actually be more conscious of how we fuel throughout the next four days!

The diet specifies NOT to alter it with ANY spices other than salt or pepper... and for 1 meal... I did drop the ball and we had left over boneless pork W/seasoning... (THAT MIGHT HAVE THROWN THE CHEMICAL BREAKDOWN OF THE DIET OFF) we may have lost a bit more weight had we not made that little alteration. :/ BUT it was an over sight on my part.
Next week will hopefully prove to be better.

Any of you on the diet?! Do you have any questions, comments or concerns?! We are here... a whole lot of us fighting the same fight together... Let me know if you do... that's what I like to be here for!!

Have an amazing weekend bloggers and know that if you falter... it's not failure!! You just can't give up on your health and happiness that is at your grasp! So make every day better than your last... little by little... THAT's HOW GOALS ARE MET!!!

Had a small apple for breakfast along with 5 saltines and 1 slice of VERY good cheddar cheese!! ... And my h2o after the Isotonix cocktail...

Did our 4 minute work out and more water...

Lunch was 1 hard boiled egg and 1 slice of toast accompanied by, yes, more water!!

Dinner is going to be 1 cup of plain tuna, 1/2 banana and 1 cup of vanilla ice cream because we have stayed focused and strong to achieve the 3 day goal TOgethER!

And THAT will be the end of Day 3!!!

Today I weighed in a whole 4lbs lighter at 1?3... And I'm not going to lie... I am a bit skeptical about weighing in much less in the 'official' weigh in tomorrow morning.
But I am SOOOO looking forward to my husband's weigh in!!!!

Since I have started to post abt this new fueling program... I have gotten note pads taken out at tables, texts and Facebook messages to get in on it... And I LoVe it!!!!

You are all strong enough to beat this crazy system society has made normal! Eating should NOT be so bad for your health!! Get control of your health and happiness by changing the way you think about fuel... Once you get that done and you're happy with your weight. Eating anything you want is great but you will already be used to to respecting your body and what it does to keep you active!

TGIF folks... =)

The day had a good start! My partner in crime and I were pretty sore this morning... not to the point that we couldn't move but certainly felt yesterdays 4 minute work out. (and i allowed the kids to sleep in the living-room... :/ ) so, needless to say, we took a break from the work out... going to do things right and break my babe into the world of work out right! Tomorrow we hit it again!!

Yesterday was a success... we went to bed a little hungry but oddly enough, woke up today feeling fine. The tiny breakfast went down well and it was pretty satisfying. =)

I was going to get a run in or do some strength training in today but this week I think that I will do as my baby does. I am just loving our team work. Next week, might be a different story. Lol
(I only have 27 days to strengthen and firm up!!!! o_O)

So, what's the Day 2 menu?! Here it is...

For breakfast we had 1 scrambled egg(which I HAD to salt and pepper)
1 slice of toast, 1/2 a banana and a glass of water

Lunch will be 1 hard boiled egg, 1 whole cup of cottage cheese and 5 saltine crackers! (This might be a tough one to choke down for me, I HATE eggs... and that's a whole lotta' plain cottage cheese! O_o )

And dinner will be 2 hot dogs (with no buns) , 1 cup of broccoli ( which my husband is dreading!!) 1/2 cup of carrots, 1/2 a banana and now 1/2 a cup of vanilla ice cream.

I'll let you know how it goes... and I can't wait until Saturday morning weigh in to finally see how much weight my love and I lost, if any!!! =)

**Important break down on this ' 3 day, military diet'**

It is understood that military people use this diet when they need to get in shape quickly.

The diet is said to work on chemical breakdown and has already been proven. You are not supposed to vary or substitute ANY of the foods. Salt and pepper are the ONLY seasoning to be used. And it is to be understood that this diet plan is designed to ONLY be used three days at a time!!

If carried on correctly, this diet is supposed to help you lose up to 10 lbs. After three days you can eat your normal foods but NOT OVER DOING IT. After the four days of normal eating, you are to start back on the 3 day diet plan. You are supposed to be able to lose up to 40 lbs in a month if you are diligent about sticking to this plan and the diet IS claimed to be a safe one.

They remind you NOT TO EAT between meals!!

And coffee or tea are allowed only in the first two meals of DAY 1!!! WATER ONLY FROM THEN ON.

( This diet has been known to possibly cause some hypoglycemic symptoms for some people)

Hello Hello!!!! This hump day got started on a very amazing note!

I started a new diet in the name of research!!! And in the name of love... Ha!! I know, I know... gag me with a spoon!! Lol... In the past, I have been an advocate of NOT falling into fad diets; But like in parenting... there are many ways to parent, it's all about what gets the job done and done well. So, still be weary of those diets and make sure that they contain a realistic format to make them a way of life!! ;)

I am very blessed to be reporting that the love of my life has asked to begin a new fueling program AND work out regimen!!! NEEDLESS to say, I have embarked on these WiTh him... <3

The work out is a '4 minute' circuit of:
20 sec of burpies/10 sec rest
20 sec of mountain climbers/ 10 sec rest
20 sec of high knees/10 sec rest
20 sec of jumping jacks/10 sec rest


This work out claims to rev up your metabolism for up to 36 HOURS!! (And I have to admit, we both feel energized so... turbo boosting your metabolism in the a.m. seems to really give you natural energy!!)

As for the diet...

It is a simple idea really. Follow the three day regimen to a tee and then eat like you normally would for the other four days. Just being more conscious of your portions and choices.
After those three days, the claim is that you will lose between 6/10 lbs. o_O

We shall see...

Today after having my Isotonix cocktail of supplements, my husband and I weighed in and worked out. =D (Forgive me for not being able to contain my excitement!!! =)
After that, we had 1/2 a grapefruit, a slice of toast with 2 tbs of peanut butter and some tea.
(NOT to mention a full water bottle after the work out!!! Lol)

Lunch is about to be a slice of toast with 1/2 cup of tuna and more tea.

And dinner is going to be, no matter what, 2 slices of any type of meat(abt 3 oz) 1 cup green beans, 1/2 a banana, 1 small apple and a full cup of vanilla ice cream!! =)

And my weight is at 1?7... :( too close to going in the wrong direction...) Let's see what this plan has to offer... as well as a possible jog this afternoon in the heat.

Stay tuned for DAY 2!!

Have any questions, want any answers, I'm here... Happy blogging!!!!

Today marks the 30 days till my 40th and it is vital to get my sweat on and firm up to feel my best when I welcome my 40's into my life!! Yes, I still believe that I will make it happen...

Again, thank you my awesome bloggers... for always having my back. And how are you all hanging in there with your challenges?!
