ADF Day 2: Curse you, Pesto!

Yesterday was an Up Day, so Chris and I went out to dinner last night.  The restaurant he suggested was one we’d only been to once before.  It’s a nice place, but seriously meat-heavy.  Their vegetarian options include a black bean patty and a Garden Pasta dish, and that’s pretty much it.  Even their salads come with meat on them.

ADF Day 8: Success!

Today’s weight: 201.8 again.  Which is good, as this is the beginning of Week 2, and I had hoped to lose about 3 pounds per week.  201.8 puts me at 3.2 pounds over last week, and since that weight is post-up-day (and I wasn’t particularly careful about what I ate last night), I’m assuming there’s nothing about that weight to suspect. 🙂

ADF Day 10: The trouble with Fridays…

Well, only SOME Fridays…   This weekend the kids are with their Dad, and like a lot of divorced mothers these weekends presents some mixed feelings.  On one hand, the time alone is nice, gives me a chance to attend to chores and such without the chaos of four school-aged kids fumbling around in the middle of them or distracting me with requests for snacks and attention.  On the other hand, nothing makes you miss requests for snacks and attention like not having them anymore.  Given the choice, no matter how complicated life might be with four children, I would infinitely prefer to have them with me than not.

ADF Day 6: Paying the Hard Way

Oof.  This morning’s weigh-in was not good.  193.2, if you can believe that.  I actually gained.

All of the “You’ll Screw Up Your Metabolism” naysayers will undoubtedly love that, but the truth is that the weight gain has a fairly simple explanation:  I had the kids at home, I was eager to get out and have fun with them, and as a result I celebrated the weekend in grand style.   (more…)

ADF Day 3: Remembering Again…


I had forgotten a lot, apparently.  Yesterday I got up, walked, and ate a bowl of cereal for breakfast.  By 10:00 a.m., the nutrition lull smacked me full-on and I was shaking too hard to write properly.  Such a quirky thing that the effects of not eating really don’t manifest for real until the day AFTER you fast, but there you go.  This is all just part of Hell Week, as I recall, so I’m not too worried.  I went out for lunch as planned and was fine after that.

ADF Day 1ish: Marathon Week

I’m not sure about starting a 21-week plan on a Wednesday.    Strictly speaking, I should have begun on Monday, as that was when Pangie suggested we start our Marathon Week.   Unfortunately, Monday coincided with some other stuff that was going on, and I forgot all about it.
