I Should Be Fired…

…of course no one “hired” me to do this, though.  I have been horrible lately.  I seem to have a lot of personal drama getting in the way of things, my blogging especially.  Here is an update, though:

My weight has been remaining pretty steady over the last couple weeks.  Up a pound one day and down 1.2 the next.  Then back up 1.4 the next and down 1.2 after that.  Frustrating.  This morning I finally have seen a lower number!

194.0

This is the lowest number I have seen on the scale, so thank everything holy for that one!  I needed some happy news in my life, really.  I also began a 7-day cleanse today.  I bought the Renew Life Total Body Rapid Cleanse.  The first thing I have to say is the Acacia Fiber tastes *horrible* – and that is no exaggeration!  I had a *very* hard time getting that down (and keeping it there), and I am really not looking forward to doing it again this evening.

I have never done any kind of cleanse before, so I am anxious to see how things go for me.  I have already developed a very mild headache and my tummy is definitely feeling a little more active.  My goal is to share with you guys how I am doing day-by-day with the cleanse (especially for those of you who have never tried one either).  The product claims say that you could lose between 5 and 20 pounds if you do the cleanse the right way (IE follow all directions, drink plenty of water, exercise, and eat well).  I would certainly be happy with even just a few pounds, though.  So, we shall see.

I will get back into the swing of things starting this Sunday, too.  So, a weigh day will be coming.

How have you all been holding up while I have been MIA?

  1. I am interested in reading about your experience as I myself have never done a cleanse.

  2. totally understand the personal drama thing and the blogging. can really mess you up. Hang in there–we win if we don’t quit.

    • Thanks for the encouragement, Shonnie! I certainly haven’t given up (nor will I), but the blogging is getting harder to carve out time for with everything else going on. 😦

      • I understand that. The blogging has been a challenge for me–because it is hard to write when you are stuck in mud. You will keep pressing and that is whats important. 🙂
