Technically we started yesterday but if you haven't noticed, I kind of suck at blogging so there you go.

|Tea, just because.|
|At least it's a pretty mixing bowl?|

You know what else isn't on this diet? Alcohol. This wouldn't be a problem, except for the SEVEN BOTTLES of wine we have in our apartment right now. For $10, from nakedwines.com - yeeaahh. They just arrived like two days ago. Whaaat. (For comparison, we usually only have 0 bottles...)
Actually, make that 6 bottles for $10, and one that was a gift from Snowflake Lane. Can you guess which one was from Snowflake Lane? (Hint: The one with the fuzzy coat. Like.... I didn't know they made wine koozies, let alone wine koozies like that! I kind of love it and hate it at the same time.)

For dinner, we got super SUPER fancy. I keep reading about these cauliflower crust pizzas and cauliflower tacos, so we bought some ground beef last night and decided to try and make "tacos". I must say... they weren't the worst! JW did most of the brunt work (making the cauliflower into something edible) and he did a really great job.

You must be wondering how I'm feeling. All I can say is: constant headache. I have an inkling that this is my body screaming for sugar, and I just need to push through it... but UGH. I've never really had a headache like this before. It's in the left part of the back of my head - usually mine live right behind my eyes. Ick.
I've also lost almost 2 pounds in a day. I know most of this is water weight, so the real question is what the scale will look like tomorrow - but damn. I have a feeling I'm not eating enough. But I'm just not used to eating so much .... meat and fat. On the treadmill tonight (post tomorrow), I felt like I was sweating meat. Does that make sense?? Ugh.
We decided we're gonna try this for two weeks, see if we feel amazing, and then keep going with Phase 2. Why two weeks, you ask? Well, because in two weeks we'll be in Dallas and The Holidays will have officially begun... hopefully I won't go into some kind of sugar shock and die at the first taste of a cupcake. Oh well, at this point it would be a great way to go.
(Is she joking??)
Just kidding y'all. I'm in a weird mood. Roll with it!
Ever tried a fad diet before?
