I'm really trying to get around to some blogs, if I haven't made it to yours in the next few days, send me a link, please!?? I may have lost it.
I'm doing very well on South Beach, I'm finishing up my 7th day today!! I haven't cheated ONCE, not ONCE... although, I HAVE forgotten a few times... the first night (Monday) I drank a cup of Kool-Aid that my son made and served me, I downed it without thinking. Then Friday at the football game, someone gave me a bite sized 3 musketeers, so I opened it and took ONE bite and swallowed it before it clicked (actually someone reminded me)... I threw the rest away. I also went to a mexican restaurant over this past weekend in San Diego, THAT WAS HARD!!!! The ladies hand make the tortillas right in front of you... BUT I did NOT even taste one, however, I was SO focused on that and what I was going to order, that I instictively grabbed a chip loaded it with salsa and threw it in my mouth without thinking... oh well... it was the only one that got into my mouth... my order: a Chicken fajita salad... it's exactly what it sounds like... chicken fajitas, grilled onion, bell peppers, and mushrooms, thrown onto a bed of lettuce... it was really pretty good, too!! I WAS thinking for a short minute to share a margarita with a friend, but didn't. I did however, have a glass of wine later that evening.... darn, I guess I DID cheat... that one was totally intentional!! Well, it's the only time the whole week.
This past week was sure not easy... at work, people brought in a total of FOUR pies; a tub of cookies; bagels; muffins and danishes; and brownies!! Can you believe that... that's just ONE week!! NO WONDER it's so hard for me to lose!!
This week will be better, and after this week, I will have completed phase 1 of the South Beach eating plan... and on to phase 2.
However, I have to say life is very BLAND right now... NOTHING to look forward to... LOL!!!
Take Care,and Have a great week!!
