I was minding my own business the other night, obsessing about weight, triathlons, my bike, and other stuff, when I got an e-mail from the lovely Danielle, asking if I was still off sugar.
I can understand; it's not like I expect people to read my naval-gazing musings every single day or my extensive food consumption reporting or anything. Or remember exactly when it was that I fell off the sugar-free wagon (that would be Feb. 8, 2007). Or when I got on it (Dec. 18, 2006).
ANYWAY, Danielle naively asked me if I was still sugar free. Err, no. After several more e-mails we hatched a plan. She's gained a few pounds over the winter; and I seem to have mysteriously gained 13 pounds by working out more than ever. Danielle wants to drop five pounds in a month (totally do-able). And I have a graduation coming up! May 18! Number One Daughter's! And it's entirely possible that I just might see some ex-in-laws who haven't seen or talked to me in 19 years.
So, obviously, I have no choice. I have SIX WEEKS to drop the pounds. No ifs, ands or butts...
So, the plan is this...
Give up sugar (so far I'm on day FOUR! How are you doing Danielle?) Eat more fruits, veggies, and protein. And, do a little tri-training. OK, a LOT of tri-trainng!
That's the plan! And I have Danielle to thank for it. (Back off, she's a scientist.)
