I am planning a day of complete and utter debauchery.
I finished the Whole Life Challenge this morning. I’m giving myself this day to indulge in an absolute bacchanal of badness nutritionally speaking and then I’m going back on the wagon.
The wagon is:
- No dairy
- No grains except brown rice, quinoa, wild rice, buckwheat, and amaranth
- No soy except tempeh and miso
- No processed food
- No sugar except fruit
- No fruit juices
I did this for 2 months and I did very well.Â No cravings or anything.Â My results were good too.Â I lost 10 lbs which is actually less than I wanted to lose.Â I lost 15 last year.Â But I lost 7.5 inches from my waist and hips.
When I started I could wear most size 14 pants but some were too tight.Â Now I can wear all size 14s and many size 12s.Â In shirts I usually wear a L or XL but I’m wearing mediums without them being skin tight.
I redid my intro workout yesterday.Â I improved by 25%.Â My running actually got a little worse but my squats, pushups, and situps improved enough to pull the whole thing up to 25%.
The plan for debauchery used to be Mexican food but the husband pooh-poohed it.Â He pointed out that I eat beans and rice at Mexican restaurants and I’ve been eating beans and rice daily on the challenge.Â I said that there would be cheese dip and chips at the restaurant but he launched into a tirade about low quality cheese in dips and then I quit listening.
The new plan for lunch is:
- Biryani – yes, it is rice but it comes with yogurt sauce
- Kashmiri naan – wheat, sugar
- Mango lassi – dairy and probably sugar
Dinner will be:
- Pizza – wheat and dairy
- Cheese dipping sauce – so bad yet so yummy
- Root beer because I’m a wild one!
I’m pre-meding with lactaid and immodium because this is going to make me so sick and then I’m heading to the Indian restaurant.Â Wish me luck!
