When I first started this cleanse I really wasn't sure that I was going to be able to finish it. I was certain that eating this diet would eventually kill me, especially when doing bootcamp 5 days a week!
I have successfully made it through my first weekend - without cheating!
I watched my boyfriend E eat pizza, muffins, bread and other delicious things, and I didn't even flinch. OK that is a lie, I totally sat right next to him and sniffed it. But I didn't touch it!
I watched P drink wine - which wasn't as hard as I thought it would be.
On Friday at bootcamp the drill sergeant brought chocolates and I had to refuse, while everyone else enjoyed Laura Secords.
And this morning, when my roomie A told me that she had "added a few things to her cleanse" I was strong, and resolved that I would not cave. Even if it means that I have to watch A eat yogurt and cereal..... ouch!
Those of you who know me, probably have a really good idea of just how many addictions I am currently kicking. There are at least 5 major ones. The cleanse has really helped to remove the physical cravings for these things, but this weekend I realized that I am currently a super bitch from hell.
My boyfriend is very patient. Evidence that he loves me very much.
Further evidence will show that my scale this morning told me I was down 4lbs. The cleanse is turning out to be a Great Success! And the bootcamp weight loss is just beginning!
