8 (litre) Mile

I'm going to preface this with a warning to those who don't like talk about bodily functions etc. I have learned thus far that there are at least 20 people going through the same thing that I am at any given time so I like to share my experiences in full. :)

That being said, yesterday was the first day of my 1 week out diet trial which required me to consume 8 litres of water.  Yup, you read that right, 8.  2 gallons for my southern friends.  It's a daunting task at first. I came in to work on Monday with two 4L jugs of water and explained to my boss that I have to drink them therefore there may be a few more bathroom breaks than normal.  What I wasn't prepared for was my body to react as if I was downing a liquid laxative!!!  I haven't experienced something like this since I had to take that stuff doctor's give you before you go in to surgery to "clear you out".  On the bright side, I now know what to do should I ever become constipated again.  Say no to magnesium and yes to simple water. :)

At the end of this week I have an fantabulous cheat meal planned (as awarded by my fantabulous trainer)!  I have chosen banana and dark chocolate chip protein pancakes, possibly with a swipe of nutella and/or peanut butter. lol  There also may be some turkey bacon on my plate.  Now some people may be thinking "That's not a cheat meal!?!" Ooooooh yes it is!!!!  I salivate every morning when my husband makes his banana protein pancakes plus anything not on my meal plan constitutes as a cheat. Therefore, TOTAL cheat to make my Carb Zombie brain happy!

Happy dieting Carb Zombies! Less than 7 weeks before us Manitobans hit the stage!!
