Here goes 4 months of torture, and no, I won’t learn to love it

Yep, it has been way too long since I ate like I should.  I am starting a 4 month clean-up.  Why 4 months?  Because I am going to Jamaica in about 4 months.  I don’t want to look like a bloated flab of lumps and stripes on the beach.  I don’t want to be one of those people who other people look at, lean over to their friends and say, “Someone should have told her she doesn’t look good in that”  even though I am wearing an Amish dress-style swim suit that covers me head to toe.  The stripes are here to stay, the flab I can do something about.  Bill is joining in too mostly because I do the cooking around here and secondarily because he doesn’t want to look like crap next to my hotness.  We also are going to exercise.  Please pray.

Here is my plan for the work week:

For Breakfasts: Breakfast cookies and egg whites of some sort (Maybe scrambled with spinach or maybe hard boiled?  Mini Frittatas maybe even.)  Grapefruit.

For Mid-day Snacks: Greek Yogurt,  Energy Bars, apples, oranges

Monday – Clean Waffles  The kids can smother theirs in butter, chocolate chips and syrup, I will find some other option.  Maybe organic PB and bananas.  Or maybe berries.  Crap, what is happening to me?

Tuesday – Vegetarian Chili – sour cream replaced by plain Greek yogurt.  No cheese for me.  No Doritos.  BOOOOHOOOOO 

Wednesday – This will be the hardest night – Bill and I usually go out for date night.  Clean Fajitas   Oh please, oh please be good.  We probably also need something sweet because we always eat something sweet.  Chocolate Banana Smoothies?? 

Thursday – Chicken Taco Wraps  Using Plain Greek Yogurt instead of Sour Cream, of course.

Friday – Home Alone!!!  I don’t have to plan anything fancy!!  Sweet Potato Fries Dipped in Ranch – I wish.  Probably left overs.

Late-night snacks – I am not eating them.  Period.  I will be fasting after dinner every night, and will be journaling.  And exercising.  And reading my Bible. If the Bible is daily bread, I should get my carb fill.  And I will be going to bed earlier because I cant be healthy if I don’t have enough sleep. 

I read this list to Bill and he rolled his eyes and whined about it.  Well, I watched the PX90 infomercial today and got all educated in the world of pyrotechnics or plyometrics – whatever – so I expect him to look like this in 4 months:



Complete with the little tiny swimsuit.  Minus all the veins popping out.

    You both are doing exactly what hubby and I should have done! We leave the Sat after Thanksgiving for Barbados and they’re getting us as is. Fat and happy. Like the way you think though! I just don’t have the willpower.

    Clicked on your follow button and entered my e-mail, I don’t have much luck with WordPress blogs filling my subscription, hoping it will work. If not I’m just gonna add you to my blogger reading list.

    Good luck, you guys will be able to do this!!! Can’t wait to see pics from Jamaica when the rest of us are freezing our butts off. Love the pyrotechnics, fireworks are always good!! 🙂 Maybe you’ll inspire me to become friends w/my treadmill again. 😉

    I applaud you for taking the steps towards becoming healthier! I went on a diet last May. Lost 25 lbs (no exercise). Here is my diet advice, lots and lots of vegetables, lean protein, no sugar, very little carbs (this includes bread, fruit and dairy, although I think plain Greek yogurt is ok due to all the protein). Also, drink at least 8 glasses of water a day (crystal light is great for helping with this). Not eating after 8 pm is a great idea, as you mentioned. You can do it. Good luck!!!
