dukan diet-day 3

So I have to say, I'm a believer. In 3 days,  I have lost 8lbs.  Again, not saying that is water weight, or whatever.. at the end of the day, 8lbs is 8 lbs, so, screw you.

Today, I even had struggles! I ate a whole package of m&ms, and then I thought it was brilliant to take the boys through Mickey D's for some super nutritional food, and I wanted a salad.

Satan was against me.

I remember the days that my dad would want something that I had, and he would take a bite to make sure it wasn't poison..well, i succumbed.  I ate some fries. (if I'm truly honest, it was like 15) and a bite of nuggets.  the 2nd bite I spit out, so it doesn't count. It wasn't poisonous.  I then decided that it was time for vegetables, so I had some barley and hops. Again, screw you. I know they aren't vegetables, but hey- it's from the ground.

At the end of the day I was down another pound, so I am a believer.

Other than that, I had a girls night tonight, and I decided that the grill that my parents got Will for Christmas (that I was saving until summer-whoops.) was a great idea for entertainment tonight for the kids. I got it out, opened the box, and decided that I HATE LITTLE TIKES. I mean, cmon. Can you put anything together? I have a 2year old and a 1 year old.  I don't have time for stickers.  This is your job.  Meanwhile, your grill that I purchased is sitting on my deck half screwed on, without most the stickers it requires. It created a multitude of problems.

The Dukan Diet

I don't particularly think I need to lose weight....in the winter, that is. In the winter, you are covered up with layers, and look fantastic with your cashmere scarf covering your double chin.  I thought I looked okay for having 2 kids in 2 years.

Then I put on a bikini.

For all you haters- no, I do not think I am fat-- that is not what this is about.  I do, however, think that I look a little different than I did when I was a senior in highschool, although I weight the same amount. What is up with this? Will and Luke. That's what. Little punks.  So since I loathe working out, I have decided to lose a little more weight than I was intending.

Kate Middleton inspired American to jump on board with the Dukan diet, and I am a sucker, and I followed. Who doesn't want that body?  Nevermind the fact that she is at least 6 inches taller than me, childless, and a freaking princess....


So I started it.  The first day I was on the pure protein portion I was invited to Los Cabos. FAIL. I will do anything for a bowl of queso and a Corona.

So I started again yesterday. SUCCESS! 5 lbs down the first day. I couldn't believe it either. I am 130% sure that was all water weight, but I am not really complaining. Today I would have killed someone for a snickers, but I drank coffee at 3pm instead, and I have to say that I enjoyed it. My teeth are destined to be brown. It is inevitable.

Tomorrow I am allowed vegetables with my protein.  I think that includes barley and hops as they grow from the ground and are meant to be consumed.  I believe beer is totally natural, so I am adding it to the Cruise phase.  I will refrain from adding a play by play of my progress, but I may remember to tell funny stories about what has happened to me during this challenge.  The odds are against me, that is for sure, but I won the snickers battle, so I can do about anything... except turn down a beer.
