Hurry up Tuesday, Aril 13th.

Right now that is my magic number, 13.  I started the South Beach Diet this past Tuesday and so far I have not cheated one time.  I have discovered vegetables and Skippy Natural Peanut Butter, oh and fat free cheese.  Just for the record, fat free cheese is just gross.  It doesn’t melt like the full fat or the low fat kind.  It’s just not good.  I tried to have roasted tomatoes with mozzarella this morning for breakfast and the cheese was more like leather than ooey gooey.

However, after weighing myself this morning {Thursday} I had lost 4 pounds.  Now, yes y’all, I know that is water weight, but I do not care.  A drop on the scale is a drop on the scale and that is all that matters.

I think all this should have waited though because this Sunday is Easter.  Luckily, I suppose we don’t have any plans with family so I guess we can just cook whatever I can eat.  I am still going to make Easter goodies for the kids because it wouldn’t be fair to them, although it’s not gonna be fair to me! HA!

OH.  Back to the reason I can’t wait for April 13th.  Well that is when my two week induction phase will be over with and I can start adding in whole grains and fruit back to my diet.  This I can not wait for.  I am going to have a huge slice or two of pineapple!  I can’t wait. 

Today I really crashed and burned.  After lunch today it was like I was hit with a sack of cement and just couldn’t get up.  I laid on the couch and literally didn’t realize I had even gone to sleep.  That gave me a boost of energy but woooo, I was irritable.  I have been fussy and not fun to be around today at all.  I am looking forward to at least Saturday, possibly Sunday when my new found energy will return {or at least that is what I read} and I no longer have cravings.

Well I guess it’s not cravings, but I swear even after a few days my nose works so much better than before.  I fixed Kelsie a peanut butter and jelly sandwich for lunch today with orange slices and pineapple chunks and I swear to y’all I have NEVER smelled something so yummy in all my life.

So here’s to my 4 pounds and April 13th!!
