Project: Final Reset: 4-Week Update

As I mentioned last Sunday, I'm currently trying to revise how I live my life by making healthier decisions for myself, my future and my family. This morning marks the end of my fourth week, and so far so good.

Tammy and I have been sticking to our super tight maternity leave budget. Plus, I've now lost 25.8 pounds--in 4 weeks! Once I lose 9 more pounds, I'll be ready to buy some running shoes and start training for the Atlanta Half-Marathon on Thanksgiving Day.

This week may be a challenge to continue eating right and light. I've just started a week-long vacation, which means I won't have work to distract me from munchy cravings. The good news is that if I can make it through this week, I'm sure I can make it through any week.

The diet I'm on worked in the past and is working again. It's not only a diet that helps you lose weight, but it helps your body function better by taking care of your liver. In fact, the diet was originally created to help cure other ailments--outside of weight loss--and for me, it's helped my skin feel smoother and gets rid of headaches.

Good luck. I think you'll be fine, just channel yourself into your poems.

Try writing a fifty page poem without losing track once, should keep your mind occupied!

I ended up keeping myself busy yesterday by going for a 3-mile walk and swimming at the pool. Plus, I somehow was able to fight back the temptation of mint chocolate chip ice cream and gummy worms.
