175 Here I Come!

That's the weight I'm trying to reach. So far I've bottomed out at about 184, but my discipline has been lax, to put it mildly. No more! Tonight I'm starting the non-cleansing version of the Lemonade Diet. The non-cleansing part means I'm leaving cayenne pepper out, and won't be drinking laxative tea or salt water. I don't give a shit about the toxins in my system, it's the fat that I want to leave. The diet makes your tongue turn white. I'll have to post a picture of it.

I've done it twice and lost a bunch of weight with it. The first time I also ran a couple times, but that was a big mistake. I'm planning on doing a few push ups or crunches each night this time while on the diet. I hope that doesn't wear me out like the running did.

Lovely Wife and I have abandoned the weight loss contest, but I'd like to reach my goal weight anyway. I could get there without the diet, I'm sure, but not before going to Florida at the end of the month. Also, since I haven't run in over a month, weight loss has been stagnant and this will jumpstart things. I really want to get back to running, and will try to run in Florida. Hopefully my calf issue won't resurface.

It's so great to be able to watch hockey again! On network TV, to boot. The game on Saturday was great, especially when the crowd was chanting "Bullshit!" in unison to protest a no-goal call. Tonight I hope Edmonton evens the series (I'm rooting for a seventh game), but I'll have to miss some of it for the premiere of Hell's Kitchen on Fox. That's what summer is good for, trashy reality TV.
