Day 15: Slightly less ass, still being kicked

This past week, I decided that if I'm going to kill myself with the 30-Day Shred, I should also adjust my diet and drop a few pounds. And by a few, I mean 20. After losing exactly ZERO pounds the first week, I cut calories back to about 1500 per day, give or take a hundred or two. I have to do things calorie-wise, because I can't cut fats or carbs as I do not have the willpower to look a slice of chocolate cake in the face and say, "No, cake. I will not eat you." I AM, however, able to say, "OK cake, I WILL eat you, but then I won't eat dinner." It may not be the way to do things, but I have learned after much trial and error that it's the only way that I am capable.

So this week I did Level 2 every day. I worked up from certain death while gasping and choking on my lungs to periodic POSSIBLE death. I will stick with this level for another week and then I MAY try to move to level 3, but I'm not going to make any commitment to that just yet. Anyway, I dropped only 2 pounds this week. While a bit disappointing, I'm not too discouraged as I am chalking up the lack of weight loss to the fact that it is that certain time of the month associated with bloating and water retention. I think next week will be better, and despite the lack of melting poundage, I am definitely in better shape physically after these past two weeks.

I find taking a new unbuffered brand of multivitamin is good for inducing nausea and a 5 pound weight lost in one week...just sayin'

From what I've heard about that DVD (and it is in my Amazon shopping cart, daring me), the weight is probably clinging to your bones, screaming in fear.
