Day 1= Hungry.

I may be closer to 30 than 20 , but I still give in to peer pressure.  When a group of peps I know decided to do a cleanse I was like "NO-thank you!" because I am way to busy for seriously restricted eating.  Well I thought it over for a few weeks and decided to go ahead and do it.  It's only 10 days of my life, right?

So the one we are doing is the Advocare Herbal Cleanse and while the fiber drink tastes, umm yucky, it's actually not that bad.  The don't eat foods include:

~ sugar *I'm sooooo missing my weight watcher desserts*
~ caffeine *ohhhhhhh coffee I'm barely making it without you every morning*
~ Enriched flour *really not that bad because I mostly eat whole grain, but I was very surprised how many food have this in it*
~ no boxed or frozen food *yikes, no 'off' days where I'm too tired to cook!*
dairy *this is probably the hardest for me because cheese makes everything taste better*

Lots of veggies and fruit of course. I may have to scream if I eat another apple and I'm only on day 2!  I've been on a plateau for a few weeks with my weight loss and I'm hoping this will help. 

I've been considering dropping Weight Watchers because I'm just not sure that it's really helping me.  On average I lost less than 1 pound a week and is that really worth 40 bucks a month?  I get that it's about being held accountable by going and weighing in every week, but I'm extremely motivated on my own.  I eat right and exercise 5x a week and I'm determined to lose the weight, but I don't think the meetings are helping me.  I'm considering just doing an online tracker like spark people.  Anyone tried anything they like?

We are ready for SPRING!!!!!!!  Miss Madison and I are tired of the cold and rain!! We had a few nice days so we ran outside for a little sunshine.

I just noticed her cute baby belly hanging out in this picture.

Yep, I'm a little baby walker now!

The things Grandma does to calm a teething baby in a restaurant!


  1. I give you props girl! It would be hard for me to give up the WW desserts too! ha! But you can do it!

  2. a cleanse?? oh man, i don't know if i would have the will power! i can't wait to hear how it turns out for you though! i'm sure you'll do awesome :) and oh my word....miss madison is a walking girl! she is ADORABLE!!! i just wanna snuggle her!

  3. Love the swing picture. I was just telling DH that as soon as it's a bit warmer we're taking Cameron to a playground. She's never been on a swing! I am actually joining WW next week. I did it before I got pregnant and was able to lose 15 pounds in about 90 days. Not bad but like you, I stopped losing and dropped out. Mostly because we had an awesome trip to New Orleans and then I stopped being so motivated. I'll let you know how it goes the second time around!

  4. I love the baby photos.

    I don't know about weight watchers but I've heard good things. About the cleansing, never done it but I would be starving since I eat about 5 or 6 times a day.

    Have you tried spending that $40 a month on a gym with a nursery for the baby? You might find you have more success by not dieting and just adding a daily workout class into your life. I, personally, don't believe in dieting. It's too stressful.

  5. I use Sparkpeople.com. I stopped doing WW for the simple money thing and the lack of WW groups in the area that we moved to. The best parts about SP is that it's FREE, it has nutritional plans for you, workout plans, online support groups of all types, you earn "spark points" for a variety of activities, and it's FUN! I love it so much. Let me know if you check it out, and I'll give you my screen name for it!

  6. That cleanse sounds TERRIBLE but so many huge props to you for doing it. You'll feel so much better when its all over. Those kinds of things just make you feel good about yourself, like you get a do over. So good for you!

  7. I just wanted to say I really enjoy reading your blog!! Miss Madison is such a cutie and your blogs always make me smile!!

    BTW, I use spark people and LOVE it!! You should definitely give it a try!

  8. nice to meet you! I'm a texas blogger too and just came by to say hi!
    Your little one is adorable- looks like you are in the DFW area too- so are we! :)
    Have a great weekend!



Make my day and leave me a love note!
