My New Diet Plan

Here is the update to my no sugar, no flour diet.

It ended.

I did incredibly well for 21 days.  Then I didn’t.

Eating is the weirdest thing.  I ate better and pretty much felt better.  I had some stomachaches but I figured that was due to the fact that I was eating better and my body didn’t understand.  I didn’t want to go to bed at 7pm and I had more energy.

But I missed foods.

I missed the high I get with chocolate and I missed being able to reward myself with food or eat away a bad day.

My stomach was flatter and I looked much better in a swimming suit but I guess that isn’t enough for me to stay away from bad food.

I’m trying to find a middle ground and I’m failing miserably.  I don’t seem to have any self control and it is driving me insane.

I go from being proud of my body because of everything it’s done and everything it can do to thinking this is a cop-out and an excuse to eat a Snickers.

Then I can’t decide how good I truly want to look in a bathing suit and who am I trying to look good for?  Me?  I’d prefer to be reading in sweats in bed.  (Oh, and ANOTHER update: we don’t have a fireplace yet.  Fireplace stores should have different hours.)

But when I’m in a bathing suit, I honestly do want to not embarrass myself.  I’m just not in a bathing suit that often.

Maybe that should be my next diet plan:

I have to wear a bathing suit around the house.

I bet I snack less.

I also bet I answer the door less.

But only at the beginning.  I have a feeling after a few incidences, people will stop coming around.

This is me and my daughter in bathing suits.  I think we look hot.

  1. It is great that you have eliminated flour and keeping it at bear minimum is the best thing to do. You can use potato flour or rice flour in place of wheat flour or even the protein powder from shakes in some cases. Check out this video on it

    It would be a great health benefit to your daughter through your example.

    You two look adorable in your suits. 🙂

    My toes will never look as hot as yours or your daughter’s, no matter how much I diet or work out. And take my word for it, you look better in a swimsuit than you think you do. Besides, you can always get the cute little skirt that covers most of your thighs. 🙂

      I love those skirts. They don’t work well with wetsuits, though and Montana is definitely wetsuit weather!
