Fitness Friday: The 7 Day Diet And My New Weight

So last Fitness Friday I announced my plans to tackle this here crazy diet called, aptly, The 7 Day Diet. Because it lasts for 7 days. And it's supposed to help you (relatively safely) lose about 10 pounds in 7 days. I asked if anyone in Tulle Nation wanted to join  me and hey! A few of you joined up.

I started this diet on Monday with a small group from Tulle Nation. When I began, my weight was 138.6 pounds with 28.8% body fat. As of last night, I weighed in at 135.8 pounds and a 28.7% of body fat. SO! It IS working! I've actually liked the diet fine so far. I eat a diet pretty heavy in fruits and veggies anyway so sticking only to one or the other all day hasn't been a big deal. What has been frustrating is that I usually eat my vegetables with some peanut butter or hummus or a pieces of chicken or some tuna. And for me? Straight up veggies all day – is boring.

But I DEFINITELY finished up the hardest day yet. Yesterday was Milk and Banana Day. Yep, that's right, for one day all you eat is milk and bananas. Remarkably filling (I couldn't manage to eat/drink it all) but MIND NUMBINGLY BORING.I am so excited to eat meat again today. Y'all have NO idea. In fact, I think my last thought when I went to bed last night was "I cannot WAIT to wake up tomorrow because I get to eat chicken. CHICKEN!!!" Obviously, I have issues.

As always, I’m putting it out there and asking Team Tulle for your support. There's only a few short weeks until my wedding (!) and I'll need all the support I can get to  stay on this weight loss journey and not binge on tacos. Mmmmmm… tacos. Bug me on Twitter, Facebook, check out my Fitness board on Pinterest, and be my friend on My Fitness Pal (I’m akbuilt – invite me to be your friend and I’ll add you to my group!). And please, please keep those practical fitness tips and nutritional suggestions coming – they are REALLY helpful to me.
