I don't think a regimen this strict is something I would choose to maintain past the two week mark, but I'm curious to see how much I
With that being said, I'm already planning a 2-day hiatus from the plan because the hubby and I are headed to Atlantic City next weekend for some grown-up time, and I am surely going to have a few drinks (& wings... & pizzas... & hoggies... JK!!!) maybe not.
