The Dr. Oz Plan, Take 1...

So, I've decided to jump on this Dr. Oz two week rapid weight loss plan bandwagon... 

Not because I really want to lose any more weight, but because I'm interested in the health benefits he promotes. I'm dying to see if I will have less fatigue and great mental acuity once I have cut gluten, carbs and sugar out of my diet.

Read details about the plan here.

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 can will stick with it and what I can incorporate into my daily lifestyle after the 2 weeks is up. 

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.  

The best part about this whole thing is that I've even convinced Jay to give it a try, or at least a modified version. This is a HUGE deal because he loves food, so I'm really impressed that he agreed to take this plunge with me. 

I started off the day with lemon water and Greek yogurt. I was supposed to whip up this smoothie for breakfast, but I've been banished from smoothie making at the ungodly hour I have to be up for work. So, I had the veggie broth for lunch...

Everything tastes better in my favorite mug!

and brought the smoothie back to work with me for "lunch". 

Working lunch

Jay is insisting on cooking tonight, so we will incorporate the 6 oz of meat in with the 1/2 cup of rice & low-gli veggies at dinner time. Then more delicious (NOT) veggie broth on the side. 

Taste-wise it really hasn't been too terrible so far, but I've heard the end of the day is the hardest. I always have something sweet right before bed (around 10 pm) and this plan calls for no eating between 8 pm - 8 am, so I'm sure I will be really feeling it later. I'm hoping I don't feel too week for my chic boxing class tonight. 

I realized I didn't do a before pic, so I'll try to remember that before I hit the gym later. I'm curious to see how much of a difference there will be overall. 

Wish me luck! I'm crazy lady hangry already, and it's only 3 pm!!!!

good luck! you can do it!!

I do the fasting from 8pm-8am. I really like that hardest thing I used to drink coffee right when I woke up at 6:30 but since I am doing this workout in the morning, I wait to eat and drink coffee or tea til after that. Water really helps if you start to get hungry
