Diet Bet - day #1

I think I mentioned yesterday that I joined a Diet Bet.  I have to lose 8.75 pounds by April 29th.  That is a ton, but I'm motivated!  Mostly I'm motivated by the fact that 3 of my friends are doing it.  That sense of community is what inspires me.  That is one of the biggest reasons I love the blogging community.

Yesterday was a big fat success.  I had a high calorie smoothie, but otherwise I did spot on.  Today is another day of full liquids. 

Today's Nutrition Plan:
Breakfast:  coffee with cream (x1!), smoothie
Lunch:  soup (either tomato or broccoli/cheese) 1/2 serving
Snack:  rest of soup
Dinner:  soup (opposite kind) & mashed potatoes
Snack:  butterscotch pudding

Today's Fitness Plan:
I'm not feeling great...allergies.  It's like little creatures are taking over my body.  I'm fighting it, but they are just killing me.  I'm going to force myself to do something today.  Maybe it will help to sweat it out a bit.

Two TV comments:  Do you watch How I Met Your Mother?  I absolutely loved the finale until the last few minutes.  That last item ticked me off.  And The Good Wife?  Best show on network TV.

I watched baseball last night.  We lost opening day and things weren't looking super great last night, but the Rangers won in a walk off which was fantastic!  Love, love, love. 

You know, I have been "trying" to lose weight for a while without success, but this effort feels different.  I have a different kind of motivation than I have had in a while.  But I have to show, not tell for it to be true.  Time to make that happen.

Hugs!

I used to watch How I Met Your Mother but got away from it a couple seasons ago. I did flip to the finaly a couple times and saw the final moments. I wasn't sure hot to feel about the whole wife dying thing. I hadn't watched it in so long I didn't even know who that character was, but still. Odd.
I don't watch The Good Wife but I've heard I should!!

Congrats on a good first day. I think it always helps to have friends doing it with you ... a little friendly competition is always a good thing too.
