Hi all! I know most of you are asleep, but I had to post and I didn't want it to get lost in the Friday post. Guess what I found at the commissary today? SUGAR FREE FUDGESICLES!!!! I can't believe it!!! I decided this morning to redo Phase 1 because trying to will myself into making good eating decisions while filling my body with bad sugars wasn't working. I need a fresh, clean start and since it's a new month this is the perfect chance to get myself back in gear.
I was also reading a Woman's Day that I found at the gym while I was on the elliptical today and there was an article called something like "Which Diet Are You" that I flipped through. It was supposed to predict which diet you'd be successful on based on your personality (whether you like to cook, whether you don't like to restrict certain foods, etc.). South Beach was the answer for people who *don't* like to cook because of the wide variety of frozen and pre-prepared meals you can get on the plan. WHAT? Does that sound ludicrous to you? I don't think the author even read up on what South Beach is all about. It was frustrating to me because if people try out the frozen meals and realize how awful they are, and then go around saying they "did" South Beach and it was horrendous, the diet gets a bad name.
I have to go finish up dinner, but I just had to check in and tell you guys about my find at the store! That will make my next two weeks of Phase 1 SO much easier!
