Lovely weekend

May 24, 2004

Aye, t’was a lovely weekend indeed. The weather was in the high 80’s, which used to be higher than average for May. But in this new era of weather, where springs and autumns only exist for a week, it seemed alright.

Today is Day One of the S0uth Be@ch** Diet . Yeah. I know. You can probably go back in my blog and find all sorts of quotes about how I love carbs, I’ll never go low carb, blah blah blah. I would go back and link to the entries, but if I do, I’ll have half a loaf of Wonder Bread down my throat by 9 am. So I won’t.

But I’m a real live human girl, and as such, I tend to be hypocritical at times. You can be too. So there! 🙂

With this plan, the first two weeks are strict, THEN you bring back the pastas and breads (yum yum) little by little. I can do 2 weeks, especially if I can lose 8-12 pounds the first two like the book says I can.

Three other members of my family are doing it as well, so I have a mini-support system built in. We’re looking to lose 20 lbs here. The last 6 that I never lost from before, PLUS the other 14 that crept on over the last 18 months.

So I spent last night cooking breakfast and lunch and snacks for the next few days. This morning’s breakfast is mini quiches-to-go (pretty good) and a glass of V8, which tastes like Satan’s piddle in a glass.

Once I’m done this, I’ll dig up the pets’ rabies vaccination forms so I can go to the Municipal Building at lunch and get their real licenses. Then off to work!

**I messed up the letters on the name because whenever I talked about Atk!ns, I got strange mail asking for me to link to people’s for-profit Atk!ns sites.
