Today is the 2nd day of our diet. It starts you off with gorging on fat foods for 2 days. This is called phase 1.

Yesterday we ate lunch/supper at our fave chinese restaurant. Plenty of fried fat foods there. I also had my bananas in strawberry sauce. *giggles* And then I had ben & jerry's half baked icecream for a snack later on.
Bye bye Ben & Jerry. I shall miss you muchness. *lol*

Today I am having pizza sticks. For supper we are grilling pork steaks on the bbq. With ranch and bacon pasta, home made mashed potatoes. Can't have milk on our diet. So I'm mixing sour cream in the taters instead of buying milk we won't be able to use after today.

So far. So good I guess. These 2 gorge days of pigging out on fats hasn't really gone very well. How the heck do you do something that you don't normally do, that you know is terrible for you? I just can't figure out the logic in it.

And the drops -- the base of it is mineral water. And it doesnt 'feel' like an appetite suppresant. Which I thought thats what it was suppose to be. ?? So, i'm wondering if the company we went through is a scam...

I'm excited to get on with the diet. Last night we did our grocery shopping. I didn't find the grissini bread sticks that we can have once a day. But got things like lemons, celery, lots of spices, onions, garlic, (I've never cooked with fresh garlic before lol), shrimp, chicken, beef, apples, oranges, grapefruit, .. Only spent about $130.00 versus 300.00!
A new item on my grocery list was 'rice vinegar'. I have lots of other vinegars always on hand. Apple cider, white, balsamic and red wine vinegars.

Bought stevia for the 1st time too. Bought a bag of it and a little box with the packets to take on the run with us.
Havent tasted it yet. And was disappointed that walmart didn't have all these different flavors that I've been reading about.

Got a bag of lemons and looking forward to making some fresh lemonade. Might have to just make it by the glass? hmmm no that probably wouldnt work. I don't know, will have to check my daily allowance for stevia. Not sure on that one.

Until tomorrow - Jules xo

HCG-Gorge Day One


Today my husband and I started day 1 of our HCG diet.
This is a 500 calorie a day diet with weightloss drops.

Right up front I will say that after purchasing the drops. I've done
a lot more reading and probably would have not purchased the drops.
And I will also say that I am not understanding the logic of this diet. With emphasis
on the two fat gorging days.

The Idea:
Gorge on bad fats for 2 days. Like donuts, mcdonald's, ice cream.
Basicly all bad foods - the sky is the limit.
" I don't get it "

For starters I had gall stones 11 years ago and have no gallbladder.
Therefore those kinds of foods react differently in my system. I get
diarrhea very easily with foods that contain too much oils.

I've taken my 10 drops this morning.
I feel like crap, so I havent felt the need to be putting any food into my mouth.
I do not feel yucky because of the drops though. The drops are like water. (They are mixed
in mineral water).
I think its the A&W shake that I had last night... 

I will keep adding to this category as my diet progresses and you can follow along with me.

I've also ordered a book that I'm very very excited to get and learn all about.
Everyday Paleo!

Employment on the horizon...

Today feels like such a wonderful magickal day.
I just went and got my TB injection looked at on my arm. Part of a pre-employment
process. Have to have a drug screening done, criminal background check, and make sure
all of my immunizations are all up to date. (nursing)

It is negative. So now I go back in on the 18th and get stuck again in the forearm.
Then that one has to be read in 48 hours.
Being hired is pending all of these checks and tests coming back
clean and clear. Of course they will : )

It will feel soooo goooood to get back to work again. To get back to what I love doing.
Helping people...

I've enjoyed my time at home. And I feel as though I've grown spiritually and have
worked through a lot of issues and things. And it has given me time at home to be with
my husband, grandkids, daughter, on the phone with my sister Jenny and my son, and my parents.
My sister and I have done A LOT of talking. And that in itself has been so wonderful.

My new book about Embolc arrived recently. It's called Candlemas.
So, I've been reading in that some in the evening before bed.
