Before I went to bed last night, I had a great idea. Ok, maybe not so great, doesn’t even seen that healthy, but I was inspired by this lady who lost weight on a liquid diet that she created herself. She lost a lot of weight really fast and she now looks great. For the sake of a challenge I started Sunday, I wanted to try something similar to that, but meal replacement shakes are expensive, and what if I don’t like them? I searched for an alternative, and then it came to me, in my sleep (kinda), Yogurt!

I love yogurt! It usually curbs my sweet craving and actually keeps me full for a little while. On top of that, it’s way cheaper than meal replacement shakes. I thought maybe I could follow her plan using yogurt instead of shakes while also adding my own twist to it.  Anyway, here’s the breakdown of the plan:

Morning: 1 cup of green tea and 1 cup of yogurt OR 1 Protein Shake

Lunch- 2 cups of any veggie for like with green tea.

Throughout The Day- 1 cups of yogurt when hungry(for me that would be around 5 cups)

Dinner: Portion Controlled Meal

Like I said before, this isn’t the healthiest diet and I”m not really sure how effective it is because I’m starting it today, but  common sense will tell you that a low calorie diet with exercise will shed pounds, and eating small meals throughout the day will keep you from feeling sluggish.  Green tea also boosts your metabolism, and protein will keep you full longer and helps you build muscle.

I plan to lose at least 10lbs in 2 months on this diet. I know that’s not a lot, but I always start low when I go on any diet because I don’t want to get my hope up too high, so I start with something basic and easily achievable even I know I can lose more.

I will keep you all updated with my progess. I need to learn how to make YouTube videos so that I can Vlog  my progress, so if anyone can help me out please let me know.

Luv Ya!

Ok like 3 minutes ago I decided to get on the scale……and it told me I was 162! I had to pick my jaw up off the floor! I have officially gained 10 pounds in the 2 weeks since I’ve been home. I blame Taco Bell,Burger King,McDonalds,and Pizza Hut…..oh yeah and myself. I don’t like this. I know I’m all for loving the skin you’re in,but this is unhealthy for me. My BMI is 26 which is over weight for my height. I just need to stay focused,and get back on track. I went grocery shopping today and spent at least $400 between me and my mom. Everything she had my picked out was organic and without added hormones. Yeah it cost a little more, but it’s worth it because both of us need to eat healthier. I got some Craisins to snack on in the car so I won;t be tempted to eat out, and I’m going to try this greek yogurt. I heard it was good.

I’m going to exercise a little bit more for the next couple of weeks too. At least 5-6 times a week denpending on my work schedule,but it’s not like I’ll be working all day so I’ll find time. I need to lose 2-3 pounds a week. I know that might not be healthy,but I have to make up for lost time. Hopefully 3 of those 162 pounds is water weight and if so they should be gone by morning. I’m going to try to cut my calories down to 1200 a day and then try to burn about 500-600 a day through mostly cardio and a little bit of strength training.

I just need to get my body back. I actually looked half decent in a bikini 2 weeks ago,and look at me now!!! Why is it so easy to put on the pound yet so hard to take them off……life’s obstacles…I HATE THEM!!!
