a test

My bachelorette lifestyle has begun to take a toll on me. I sustain myself on a steady diet of Wasa, PB & J, and cereal or on dining out. My trips to the supermarket are far and few between, which on the flip side forces me to be resourceful and make something out of nothing sometimes.

The holidays were a bum rush of fat laden gravy, potatoes, pies, and booze, and now it's January and I think I need a break.

For the next 30 days, I'm going to impose a strict regimen on myself.. I haven't worked out the details, since I just decided this moments ago in the shower, but it will be something like this:

For 30 days:

no meat products
no alcohol
no processed foods/drinks

I will eat only raw fruits and veggies, Greek yogurt, water, tea, fresh squeezed juice, and the one guilty pleasure I won't deny myself will be my daily cappuccino at work. Do you think oatmeal is acceptable? hrmm.. will decide on that one.

Can I do it? Will I go crazy? Will I kill someone, or myself? Will I fall off the wagon and eat a burger while drinking a bottle of bourbon? Time will tell.

Tomorrow I shop... Wednesday I detox

Good luck. I try to go on the wagon all the time - it usually doesn't last long.

heh.. day one I was SUCH a bitch. At work people were begging me to eat something. On day two I fell off the veggie wagon and ran into the nearest pizza place and followed that slip up with Thai food and wine... I'll have to re-think my abilities to deprive myself of both good food and alcohol :P
