Plans and Experiments

The days are moving right along. Day Sixteen already. I have decided on a firm plan. I am setting it in stone and won't let anything change it. I will continue my water fast until Good Friday which is the 10th. Then I'll do juice until Easter. Not very long for juice, but then I'll have almost a week to do the raw fruits and vegetables diet.

I started my fast a bit late for lent, but I will still be doing 32 days of water fasting. It's kind of cool to say I gave up calories for lent. Maybe next year I'll be able to go the whole way.

Last week, I didn't take the multivitamin I had been taking (One-A-Day Weightsmart), only because I just forgot about it. But this week I'm going to take it every day. It supposedly boosts your metabolism, but I don't know what sort of difference that it will actually make. We'll see! I'm also going to work out, which I'm pretty sure will make a difference, so there's no real way of knowing if the vitamin is helping. Oh well. I lost 8 and half pounds last week, my goal this week is just to lose more. It'd be so great to lose 10 pounds in just a week.

Yesterday my workout was pretty random. I just did whatever I could think of while I watched Law and Order, heh. I get so weak, I can't do one excercise for very long stretches, but I was able to stay moving for the whole hour and got a sweat going. Afterwards, I felt so drained I just lay on the couch and vegged out to recover. I had enough energy to make it through class a couple hours later, but I could definitely feel the difference. Hopefully, I will the fruits of my labor on the scale this weekend.

Savory, you're so cute. I'm happy you're able to use me as inspiration. That puts the pressure on for me to not mess up. Thank goodness you caught that your/you're fiasco! That could have been ugly. In answer to your question, I don't weigh because I don't own a scale. My boyfriend and I have outrageously different schedules, so I only get to see him on weekends this term. So when I spend the night, I sneak a weigh on his scale in the mornings. I sometimes feel like I'm suffering for it, but I do think numbers can be misleading a lot of the time. Especially if we weigh every day. Once a week is really plenty. I think you get a more accurate picture of how you're actually doing if you wait.

Thanks for all the other comments. I'm looking forward to reading y'alls blogs now. Hopefully my comments can be inspiring too. <3


  1. WOW, you are doing absolutely amazingly! You're a total aspiration. Hope it all goes well, you have definately spurred me on to!
    Much love

  2. I've stopped weighing myself so much too, it's a bad game. Glad you are doing well!

  3. I haven't tried one a day weight smart, but I suspect it's a rip-off. lol, if it were supposed to be a diet pill it would cost way more. Not that it isn't overpriced. Maybe I'm just resentful because I can't afford it. :-P Yeah, that's probably it.

  4. Stay strong hun X
