Ah, the days we all dream about on the Xtreme Fat Loss Diet!
It’s day 16 for me on the program and I had a great cheat day!
I woke up to Scott making the exact thing I mentioned the previous day I was thinking of having for cheat day – chocolate chip banana pancakes!
Isn’t he so sweet?
I smeared butter all over them btw, out-freakin-standing!
That was about 7:30 am and then I went about my day. I was a busy little bee and at one point I looked at the clock and it was 11 am!
Where the hell did my morning go? I was supposed to have already eaten so much by then! I was so mad I wasted my morning!
But I guess I really wasn’t hungry. In fact, I really didn’t even need to eat then but because I got all panicky about not taking full advantage of the day, I did what any other sane person would do in this situation – I went to the Snack Bar for a medium soft serve twist.
Ice cream is my weakness. One of few weaknesses I have in the food department, actually. And I planned on having my share today, that I knew for sure.
Funny, again I was working at the computer working on one of my websites and I saw it was after 3 pm – all I had eaten at this point was the pancakes and ice cream. I was really pissed the time was going by so fast.
Why don’t fasting days go by this quickly? Damn!
So, I ran down to the local convenient store who has the best hot dogs in town! I crave these things – I’m not sure why, it’s a hot dog. But they’re always so fresh and steamy when I get them (which is rarely) so I was happy to not feel bad about the purchase.
I also grabbed a container of chocolate milk while I was there.
Next up, dinner with Mom. I was feeling the need for another attempt at fettuchini Alfredo. Last cheat day I had some and it sort of sucked. So disappointed!
But tonight, I found some that was so good that I ate the entire bowl of pasta! Gross! You know how much pasta you get at Italian restaurants, right? I didn’t know my stomach could hold that much food – and not rebel against me!
But I wasn’t done yet. We went to another local ice cream stand in town and both got hot fudge sundaes.
Now, you know about my love affair with ice cream, but by the time I got to the bottom of thie bowl I was ready to put the spoon down.
Stick a fork in me, I’m done!
- banana chocolate chip pancakes
- medium ice cream cone
- 2 hot dogs
- chocolate milk
- fettuchini alfredo
- hot fudge sundae
Good times, as I write this I am already dreaming about my next cheat day. I should be dreaming about fasting tomorrow after looking at this nasty list.
Ok moving on to the workout. The cheat day is also a great day because you only have one density workout and that’s it.
My workout was spectacular! I love how you do one set of an exercise, think you did your best but when you do set #2 and you increase your weight AND increase your reps from set #1 you realize that you just pushed yourself so much more.
I find that so rewarding and I’m hoping my figure does soon too!
So, today marks the beginning of my 4th cycle out of 5. I’m over half way there and that is really feeling good to me. I am so proud of myself for sticking so closely to the program for so long already. The Xtreme Fat Loss Diet is no joke and is not for the faint of heart.
And if you are reading this and have been doing the Xtreme Fat Loss Diet yourself you should be proud of yourself as well. You are a rare breed – persistent, courageous, and a massive action taker!
You’re probably wondering about my weight and my measurements through cycle 3.
I hate to disappoint you but I again, as in cycle 2, chose NOT to check my results.
As you might remember, I’m a little bloaty and what not from being in my “girl time”, I won’t say too much about it, but I know my body very well, and I know that if I stepped on the scale I would have thrown it out the window. No use taking a measurement I know won’t be accurate, if for no other reason to preserve my own sanity.
I am at my leanest (you know, not retaining a gallon and a half of water) this Monday and will take my measurements then.
I will say that even when we don’t take the actual measurements we sort of know what’s happening with our bodies. You look in the mirror, you feel how your clothes fit. You know.
I know. I think I’m seeing some good stuff happening here and I don’t need a scale to confirm that.
One thing I am noticing is that my quads are getting wicked definition – never had that before. Then again, I’ve never squated, lunged, or jumped as much as I have on the Xtreme Fat Loss Diet before either.
Gearing up for fasting day – I think I have done a good enough job today to get me through
