I worked REALLY hard today on the Xtreme Fat Loss Diet. It’s day 17 and today was a fasting day. It also happened to be a Saturday.
I knew I would be up for the fight of my life when I realized by fasting day and shake day fell over this weekend. Not fun.
And the fact that it wouldn’t be fun wasn’t the problem, it was the fact that I’m very social on the weekend and this was going to be no different.
Not many people know (or understand) that I am doing the Xtreme Fat Loss Diet so to have to explain is such a pain in the a**.
Here’s how my day went:
We woke up and Scott sprang it on me that he wasn’t able to finish the deck (he is a contractor) that he had been working on this week and that he needed to go back for the morning and finish and that he could really use my help.
I have 3 workouts to do today, remember, which is not only time consuming but requires energy that I was afraid I wouldn’t have if I went to work with Scott.
But I’m a good gf so I went with him with a smile on my face. It ended up taking us almost 6 hours to finish! I spent the entire time running around carrying tools there and bringing them back over here. I cleaned up after him, loaded all the garbage in the truck, moved some cinder blocks, and overall sweat my butt off because the sun was beating directly on us.
I did all this while fasting, and while the homeowners were kind enough to buy us a pizza for lunch.
Can you even imagine? Pizza is my absolute favorite and I CANNOT resist it! She asked me if I wanted some and I had to explain what I was doing so she knew why I was refusing and wouldn’t be offended.
She totally understood…and then offered me home-made apple pie. Great.
I again politely refused. Thank god I don’t like apple pie.
The next thing that came out of her mouth was this, “Oh let’s see, what else can I offer you….”. OMG!!! NOTHING!!! I”M FASTING. I TOLD YOU THAT 100 TIMES ALREADY!!! GET OFF MY BACK!!
OK, I didn’t say that out loud but that’s what I was thinking. I again said I was fine and she gave up.
OH, btw, the reason I was more than happy to sit and watch everyone eat my favorite food is because they got sausage all over it – I hate sausage and won’t eat anything it touches.
I never thought sausage would save the day, but it did.
So, by the time we got home it was 3 pm. Scott needed to pick up a few things at the grocery store (apparently he was still going to eat today even thought I wasn’t) so that’s where we headed.
The store was packed and they also started a new deal – they had sample stations EVERYWHERE! Scott was starving so he started picking up 2 samples of everything (pretending one was for me) but of course I didn’t take them. I almost started to cry when I had to pass by the chocolate ice cream sample and the strawberry shortake sample with whipped cream.
I hate this place right now and I am going to kill anyone who gets in my way. Scott, btw, is standing in front of me devouring his ice cream and going “MMMMMM” with each bite. Jacka**.
I got the hell out of there. Later Scott mentioned how I yelled at him at the store over bananas. HA! I didn’t even realize, that’s so funny. Food, and lack there of, can make you do pretty crazy things, can’t it?
That was my major story for the day.
I went home after the store, did the lactic acid workout and HIIT workout (I did kettlebell swings today), but never officially did the 30 min of cardio.
Wait until you hear what happens tomorrow. I wasn’t as successful on the Xtreme Fat Loss Diet as I was today.
