Sorry... but I had to share one more time today!!

Hope it's worth it... Enjoy the read!!

Straight from September 2012 Prevention Magazine:


If you wake up and head straight for the coffeepot, you might be inadvertently derailing your diet. Caffeine can temporarily suppress appetite, causing you to skip breakfast.
That's a problem if your goal is weight loss, since breakfast kick-starts your metabolism. "People who skip the morning meal have a higher BMI, even though they eat fewer calories through-out the day," says Angela Ginn, RD, of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. Simple solution: Have your first cup of coffee AFTER breakfast.

And you might want to keep sipping throughout the day. Researchers found that women who drank 4 to 5 cups a day lived 16% longer. Both decaf and regular varieties of joe do the job.~

NOW, that whole thing being said... I would recommend the decaf kind... no need to kick-start all of your natural anxieties!!

Happy Saturday bloggers!!!

Today was the official weigh in for my husband and I on our SECOND go at this 3 day diet...
Just trying to figure things out to see if it is a valid form of helping to lose weight AND keep it off.

I have lost 8lbs total and have never been at 1?0 after having my six kids!!! (Needless to say, I am VERY happy!!!)

My husband has also lost 8lbs and is very pleased with the slow but continual down sizing... =)

The trick now, is to get through these next 4 'normal' eating days right. Remember, I ate very little last time, (LIKE I AM USED TO) and I ended up gaining the first 5lbs I had lost + an extra pound after the first 'NORMAL' eating days. My Hubby, ate a bit more than me in portions AND sweets, like cake a couple times... and although he had gained his original 7lbs. back within 3 of the 'normal' eating days, by the end of the 4 'normal' days, he weighed in 4lbs. LESS again... (from his original weight at the VERY start.)

SO, apparently, this diet which claims to be based on 'CHEMICAL BREAKDOWN' actually seems to NEED the 'BAD' stuff here and there on those 4 'NORMAL' eating days... o_O

Hope everyone can follow... cause you will have to find what works for YOU!!!

Obviously, for my 'normal eating' THIS was NOT working well...

My goal is to get 2-4 lbs. under my current weight of 1?0... So that on MY worst days... I will have 5-9 lbs to work with and NOT EVER get to the high 1?0's!!! LOL!!! (well?! a girl can dream... and remember... if you believe; you WILL achieve!!!!) ;)

Today's fueling... (going to try to make it 5/6 small meals to keep my metabolism rolling on high gear)

Meal 1: 2 scrambled egg tacos on flour tortillas with , shredded cheese, sour cream and valentina sauce and a glass of water.

Meal 2: Tuna on toast w/a slice of cheddar cheese and water.

Meal 3, 4, 5 and possible 6... I'll keep you posted on in a comment tonight!!

Good luck and enjoy today people!!! 'Cause EVERYDAY, no matter what, is a gift!!!! =)

NO weigh in for me until tomorrow morning!! ;) And then, let's see what transpires for the following 4 days... I'm thinking of sticking to the, "If God didn't provide it for me, I'm not eating it!" except for ONE cheat item a day.

The chemical breakdown with the 3 day seems to NEED 'normal' fat intake to work ...

At least, that's how it worked better for my husband. Remember, he had lost 7 lbs after the 3 day plan... within the first 2 'normal' fueling days; he gained all 7 lbs back... He was VERY discouraged... BUT then at the weigh in for the next 3 day diet, TURNS OUT HE LOST 4 LBS AgAiN after the 4 'normal' eating days!!! So, he is now losing the new lbs from THIS 3 day + the 4lbs that he kicked to the curb on last weeks plan. Tomorrow is the official weigh in after the second 3 Day. o_O

Hope that this information is helping you all out!! And I know for a fact that about 6/7 of you are trying this diet out... We'd ALL love for you guys to share your experiences and see hoe YOU are making it work for YOU!!!

Happy Friday my blogging family!! =)

Day 2... I've lost 4 lbs as of A.M. hours...
Loving the hard boiled egg with salt and pepper... LoViNg that Prima Della Cheddar Cheese!!! (No more cottage cheese for me!! ;))

Breakfast was a scrumptious scrambled egg (plain), a slice of toast and 1/2 a banana.
Lunch was a hard boiled egg, five saltine crackers and 1 slice of cheddar cheese :))
Dinner will be 2 hot dogs (no buns), 1 cup broccoli, 1/2 cup carrots, 1/2 banana and 1/2 cup of vanilla ice cream
Feeling real good!!! This 3 day diet is definitely getting easier! Lol
Now I just have to decide how I will change the 4 normal days of eating... Hummm... How to keep these lbs off?!?!

Wednesday, August 1, 2012

Happy Wednesday folks!! Starting with Day 1 again... trying to tweak this 3 day diet to work for us!! Lol...

So, I gained my 5 from before the original 3 day diet AND an extra pound! So today's weigh in:1?8

HOWEVER!!!! My hubby lost 7lbs and gained them all back since the beginning of the first trail 3 day diet AND then weighed in 4lbs less than HIS original weight, after the 4 normal days of eating!!! NICE!!! The chemical breakdown this diet is based on, might have something to do with some bad choices being accounted for.

Needless to say, we are not giving up hope for this helpful fueling plan... 'I' of course have NOT liked how it's working for me, so I will be following a more strict "normal" 4 day plan...

Tune in to see how it all pans out... =)

Today, we are off our Isotonix cocktail( :/ ) Had our 1/2 of a grapefruit, 1 piece of toast w/2 tbs of peanut butter and some Jasmine Tea.

Lunch will be 1/2 a cup of tuna, 1 slice of toast and more Jasmine Tea

Dinner today will be 3oz of any type of lean meat, 1 cup of green beans, 1/2 a banana, a small apple and 1 cup of vanilla ice cream w/water only from here on.

Let's see if we can get THIS fad diet to work in our favor with a little personal tweaking... (STARTING AGAIN TOMORROW THRU FRIDAY)

Nope... not strict enough this last day of 'normal eating'... gained that other pound already!
My plan... for the following 3 day... I will be following it up with a fueling system to enjoy 'normal' eating ONE day of the following four and stay on track for the other 3 days of the 'normal' ones with MY FUELING PLAN! My philosophy on all of it?!

Care what you consume! Eat for fuel not pleasure 95-98% of your life! If it didn't grow from the Earth or wasn't fed by the Earth, try not to eat it!

It is not as hard as one might think. It just takes a lot of determination... and the bottom line, if/when you conquer your weight loss goal... that 'eating for pleasure' can happen a little more, since you lead a more disciplined life when it comes to fueling.

That whole 'fueling' thing not cutting it for ya'?! Then get MUCH more active!! ;)

The amount of calories that you consume HAVE to be burned on a daily basis. So if you are OVER weight... then you have to not only burn the calories that you take in from day to day, but a bit more to target the access fat that is already there.


Either way you look at it... Watching what you eat is going to play a big part in slimming down. So, get motivated to live an active life and care about yourself enough not to damage your body further from the inside with all the wrong (processed, fried and starchy)foods that don't 'actually' fuel your body mechanics!!

Need help? We are ALL here... taking this climb together!!

Happy Tuesday bloggers!!

Not gonna lie... this fad diet thing has me upset... I had wondered how one would be able to keep on loosing pounds if you ate a 'normal' diet for four days after the 3 on the diet... don't you gain it all back?!

Apparently, I was right... I have gained 4 out of my 5lbs lost back in two days... and I did not overdo too badly. The only way you are going to make it to the next 3 days of following the diet plan keeping some of the lost pounds off is WATCHING what you eat for the 4 'supposed normal' eating days! NO, I mean REALLY WATCH not to eat anything white, fluffy or processed or fried!!!!
(OR alcoholic... ) LOL

Going to get another 10 minutes in of circuit training today and I am going to follow a strict fueling plan today and tomorrow... see if I can keep that last pound off that I have left to be proud of from the 3 day diet.

Let's see... day 1 out of 4 "normal" eating days down... NOT too bad...

Today, I had a bowl of instant cinnamon oatmeal and abt 2/3 small slices of very good toast with my h2o. Lunch was one quesadilla with a little sour cream and valentina sauce... Mmmmm!!!

And tonight we enjoy a date night with some friends at a new Cuban restaurant that we are going to try...

Hope that all of you have a plan and have prepped for awesome fueling through out your upcoming week!! Remember, log! Log!! Log!!! And drink plenty of water All day long!!! Happy Sunday!!
