Note on picture: Honey Graham crackers are not exactly your friend when you're on a diet, but they are so tempting when I'm also feeding these to my kids. As long as you can keep control and write down what you eat...1/2 sheets as shown stacked here are 35 calories a piece.

It's Crunch Time

In case you hadn't noticed people, it's crunch time for me.

I'm about 2 1/2 weeks away from being on this diet for 10 weeks. I finally dropped a few more pounds and I'm at a 14 pound drop, so that means I need to lose six pounds in 2 1/2 weeks.

And, according to my calculations, I'm a little behind. To keep on schedule I wanted to see that 14th pound drop three days ago and then the 16th pound drop by this coming Monday.

But, hey, my cheap scale could be partly to blame since it may have been a little off when I started. But no excuses here. I'm the one that bought the cheap scale. So, we'll just have to figure out a way to scale these last six pounds.

One thing I decided to add to my routine kind of spice things up is to add doing my sit-up routine twice a day instead of once a day. Remember when I said that's what I did lose 2 inches off my waist when getting ready for my wedding?

Well, if (big IF here) I'm going to post pictures to this blog...of before and after would be really nice to bring in my abs and waist as tightly as humanly possible. Ha, Ha...that just sounded funny.

I didn't taken any measurements before I started, so why don't I start today? I'll meaure my waist today and then again in 10 days, and 2 1/2 weeks from now...we'll see how many inches I've trimmed off.

What do you say?

And what's with 10 days? Labor day, my friends. I've got a party to get skinny for.

Yep. It's definitely crunch time.


  1. I love the short term goals. It's easy to ratchet up the intensity for a week or two. Do every exercise a little harder and a little longer. Drink a little more water. Just really focus on pushing yourself. 10 days... piece of cake (and one more thing: no cake).

    Good luck!

  2. in my opinion, as long as you've used the same scale the whole time it would still show the progress made? like if you weighed in at 140 on day 1 it would show 120 at the end of your hardwork, even if a more accurate scale says you started out at 137, it should still show the total weight lost right? am i being confusing? haha.

    anyway, will be interesting to see how the measurements came out too!
