“Perseverance is not a long race; it is many short races one after the other.” Walter Elliot

Stage 2 of the diet has begun: for the next 20 days I’m still off dairy and gluten.  This is going to blow…

The only thing I had today that I was allowed back after the 10 day “shred” was caffeine. I tossed a shot of espresso into my morning smoothie, oh how I missed it!  

I ended up loosing a total of 9 lbs in the 10 days, and My Fitness Pal informed me that I have lost 25 lbs now from my highest weight!!! As I wrote yesterday, though, the next 20 days are going to be grueling for me with many challenges.  This weekend already brings my first challenge, my parents are coming down to visit Sunday and we’re going out for breakfast.  I’ll need to research the menu ahead of time and come up with a plan.  And if I can make the menu work to fit the diet, I’ll have to chug a smoothie before we leave and then just sit there with an ice water and a side order of fruit or something!

Tonight’s blog post is going to have to be short and sweet, I’m falling asleep as I write this now…we had an activity-packed day at daycare today and I am wiped out.  G’night, all!
