I love statutory holidays

Except that I'm using this one to do school work. I'm at my Dads actually, since I work better here. And yesterday was his birthday. And my cat is here (and is currently rubbing herself all over my feet wanting attention. Sook).

I've been doing okay weight wise. Dads scale says I weigh just under 120lbs, but I don't trust it as much as my own. It's an analog too so that irks me. I like having the point of the lb told to me.

I've been trying to front load the calories I do eat. That way with my running around I will be more likely to burn them off. I'm also going to have to start better budgeting my food, which means less carby junk and more veggies and fruits. I'm probably going to start only allowing myself carbs every second day, maybe with the exception of a bit of rice if I really need it.

I still plan on doing the Russian Gymnast Diet, maybe even starting next week. For those who may not know the diet is:

Breakfast: Glass of either orange or apple juice
Lunch: Fruit Salad (made off kiwi fruit, orange, pineapple, and peeled apples), Glass of fruit juice (from one of the above fruits)
Dinner: Glass of non carbonated water*, Green apple

In all honesty I'll probably modify the fruit, since I don't like pineapple or kiwi and only like oranges sometimes, but I'll probably try to keep it similar. Also I plan on doing this as my average daily diet with days where say I need more calories (exams, long work days, projects due) and date days with the boyfriend as days off. So I may end up doing the diet for two or three days then having an off day, or maybe two, then back on it. I'm saying this now so I don't get pissed off at myself for breaking the plan.
Also I want to say welcome to all my new followers. It's been awhile since I have. I can't believe 74 people are even interested in reading this. I love following my followers blogs, but sometimes I miss them, or blogger is being a bitch and says you don't have a blog, only when I check again you do and you've had it since before I checked. Just let me know if you want me to follow you and I'm not and I will. I haven't been the best follower/commenter lately but I promise I do read everything, and I am trying to comment more again.


  1. that diet looks interesting actually. i may just use it one time :) good luck and you'll do great - don't worry about modifying it a bit. sometimes these regimes just don't fit neatly with normal life.
    stay strong x

  2. good luck on the diet! I also take date nights as days off, because my boyfriend likes to spoil me by taking me to fancy restaurants.

  3. Ohhh, good luck with the Russian Gymnast Diet! I thought it was hard, and boring, I couldn't keep up with it. Let us know how much you lose on it! Take care, love!

  4. Glad to hear from you and that plan sounds good :) Never heard of that diet! Will have to check it out. Stay strong hun :) xx

  5. Good luck on the new diet! I try to really avoid carbs, too. It's hard! They're in everything, and of course when you don't eat them your body goes into rabid carb-crave mode. But it's a work in progress! :D

  6. Good luck with the new diet :) Hope it brings you happiness! :) You deserve it after all! And as you said to tell you if your not following someone, your not following me :) haha xx

  7. Aw, you're so luck to have a cat! I really want one. :)
    Also, good luck with the diet. Hopefully it's really good.

  8. Wow, that diet sounds really interesting. Let me know how it treats you.

  9. Good luck with the diet. Sounds rough, but good plan to allow yourself off days. I think I'd go nutty trying to do that day-after-day.
