Alright, day one of the 3 Day Cowboy diet wasn't so bad. The meals were big enough I never felt hungry. Actually I couldn't even finish them. I had to tweak a couple of things to account for my own tastes, and I made some sacrifices too. I don't particularly like oatmeal (gimme the grits!) but I got half of it down. Also, I'm a real sugar and butter kind of gal, but I guess Splenda and I Can't Believe It's Not Butter spray won't kill me in three days, so I used them.
I drink hot tea all day everyday, and I'm so addicted to the caffeine, I get a major headache if I don't. So I didn't even try to change that. I just used Splenda instead of sugar and I didn't drink milk with my meals (like the diet calls for) or as snacks so that I wouldn't feel guilty for putting a splash in my tea.
At dinner I didn't cook my cabbage. I love raw cabbage, but can't stand it cooked. Otherwise I kept to the diet. In addition to the evening walk in the moonlight, I did twenty minutes on my elliptical because that's already part of my routine.
All in all, I've suffered worse. :) Honestly, I didn't suffer at all. I was well-fed and productive. I had to stop myself from reaching for the Tootsie Roll bowl and the box of Mike & Ike's, just because I'm so used to snacking not because I was hungry or even craving sweets.
I climbed on the scales first thing this morning and yesterday morning butt naked just like the diet told me to. The results?
I'm one pound lighter. Woo Hooo! Come here skinny jeans! You're almost mine again! LOL!
So did any of you give it a try? Or are you just waiting for those real live cowboys to show up and help you work those calories off?
