GM Cleanse: Day One & Two

Day 1: Fruit only (except bananas).

My first thought: YUM!

My thoughts at supper time: GAG!

Oh,
and after entering all of my food and water into my fitbit account, I
was shocked at how many calories I had eaten in all that fruit.

I
did not work out as much as I thought I would the first day, but I
certainly made up for it on day two. But I still thought I would lose some
weight.

Day 2: Veggies only, baked potato with a pat of butter for breakfast.

After
eating all fruit the day before, I was so ready for something more
filling. So I was ready for my baked potato for breakfast. That seemed
odd to me at first, but then I thought about how I love hash browns for
breakfast. So, it isn't so odd afterall.

My fitbit info for day two.

FitBit1But get this, I haven't lost much weight at all. I'm talking 2 – 3 pounds.

That sure makes it hard to stay on the diet, but I am still on it.

This afternoon, I will update you on day three (yesterday).

Black-eyed peas are not my thing. Do you eat black-eyed peas each New Year? I realize they are a symbol of luck, but I really don't do superstitions. Okay, I might not open an umbrella in the house, or walk under a ladder, but it doesn't mean I believe in superstitions. Some of them are kind of fun to do like holding your breath over a bridge, or raising your feet when you drive over a railroad track. Fun, that is all they are for me.

The year of 2011, we ate black-eyed peas to play along with the world. That is the year I was diagnosed with breast cancer.

The year of 2012, we skipped the black-eyed peas, and I beat breast cancer!

This year, 2013, I started the year cancer-free! I have finished all of my treatments and surgeries. I have to take Tamoxifen for another 4 years, but that's no step for a stepper. And my hair is growing!

Today, I am thankful for my cancer free life.
