My sisters are bugging me - so here's the post...

Well its been since Sunday that I have eaten nothing but veggies (popcorn is a form of corn so that counts right?)

I actually feel pretty good. A lot better than I did on Monday or Tuesday. Those first few days and even some last night I felt like heck. I was hungry ALL THE TIME. I felt like the veggies and fruit kept me full for all of 10 minutes. And then the headaches were torture.

I have always gotten headaches whenever I haven't eaten at my normal time. So it would figure that not eating my normal diet would trigger the same effect. Thank goodness I found my bottle of Motrin!!

Anyway, I have feeling over the moon today! I have had a lot of energy (even after an 8 hour day of watching jr high kids in ISS!) and I feel rather refreshed. I don't know if I've lost any weight but thats not what this veggie thing has been about. Its about flushing out all the bad preservatives and trans fats (haha - I fixed it but I just wrote "trans farts" - haha - I LOVE typos!). Plus only eating veggies and fruits for a while has made me really want some of the healthy stuff I wouldn't have wanted before... mainly to give me some variety!!

So all in all, this has been a good experience for me! I'm glad to have done it but glad it will be done with soon!!!!

Current Weight: (not posting this yet... waiting until after veggie week)
Exercise since last post: awesome workout on the gazelle Tuesday night and various walks
Upper arm in inches: (waiting until after veggie week)
Bust in inches: (ditto)
Waist in inches: (ditto)

Well my dog has come over to sit on my computer so I guess that is all I will be writing for now! Hope everyone has a safe and healthy weekend! -ara

We are a special group of sisters!! Not too many people understand the love for each other (and some don't believe it!) But I am SO thankful for both of you and you guys mean so much to me!! I just wish we lived closer together to have more trips down the river and more!!

I'll try to pay attention better (aka...ease drop better!!) Love you!
