Okay, so summer is creeping around the corner and for us ladies that means one thing……swimsuits! Yes the dreaded S word in which directs our attention to the areas that we have successfully hid during the winter months or just flat out told everyone that the extra weight is just a winter coat! As I eye the closet with all the hopefuls….yes pieces of clothing that I hope to fit in during the summer, I know that hopefully will soon turn into hopefully not if I don’t get myself in check now.
Now don’t get me wrong I have jumped on the treadmill several times, done the zumba thing and my husband even signed me up for boot camp (without me knowing it which ended with him out on the couch!) But still those few extra pounds have made a home in which case must be evicted prior to the summer coming. So my husband ( who is the cook, and I can’t cook to save my life) has made the decision that we (him and I….I don’t remember voting on this…) are going to do a cabbage diet. My reaction….”A what!?!” I made him clarify…..the answer wasn’t good… Apparently for the next week I can eat ALL the cabbage soup I want….YAY!! But that is all I eat….NOOO!!!!!
So I last night I had my first taste of what the week will be like…..Its going to be a LONG week! While flushing my system with water and cabbage, I not only do I feel light…most in the head… my personality is slowing turning to the dark side, especially when I see real food being enjoyed by others. So for motivation I have pull out my bikini and hung it on the door for encouragement, which is not helping. While I am being served cabbage all you can eat soup I am suffering in silence. I am telling myself for its only for a week….and I will be 10lbs lighter to jump start into the summer. So while I eat this bowl of torture, I can’t help but spy a log of sausage sitting on the counter, while talking to Kitt I am having delusions of grandeur of how that sausage would taste…….but alas my competitive side is keeping me from splurging in hiding. So here’s to losing the weight insanity style!!!
Here is my goal!
