It’s been a really rough couple of weeks. Well, a really tough couple of months, but a SUPER tough couple of weeks.
I’ve been having some serious family problems and my mental health took a hit. My physical health followed. But enough of that- I’m trying to get through it.
I watched Fat Sick and Nearly Dead. I’ve thought about juice fasting in the past, but never really had the motivation to go through with it. So I’m going to try it for the next 10 days. Today’s day 1, and although it’s only been a few hours, I feel awful.
It’s not that I’m hungry right now, it’s just that I think I should be eating solid food. And I want to. So. Bad. 10 days didn’t feel so long when I thought about it, but now that I’m actually doing it, it feels like a huge undertaking.
Right now, I weigh 230 lbs. Let’s see how I feel and how much I weigh at the end of this.
For the past four or five days, we haven’t had any internet at home. No one wanted to call Time Warner, so we all did nothing until my mom caved last night and called to have someone come repair it. But now I’m back! Hopefully no more extended tumblr breaks.
Last night I made spaghetti squash for the first time in my life, and let me just say this: it is crazy good. I don’t even like squash, but spaghetti squash tastes nothing like what I expected, it’s super fun to make, and it’s quite good for you.
Before being prepared, spaghetti squash looks like this:
Here’s a helpful guide on how to prepare spaghetti squash.
And here’s the amazingly delicious recipe I used last night.
I sauteed zucinni, onion, garlic, and roma tomatoes for my spaghetti squash.
Seriously people- try this at least once in your life. If you don’t happen to like squash much, which is true in my case, let me tell you it tastes nothing like any squash I’ve had before. After having this, I don’t think I’ll ever go back to regular pasta. Make sure you season it well or have a wonderful sauce on hand though, as it can be a bit bland as is.
Salad with egg, cheese, and ranch dresing 200 cal.
Baked potato with sour cream and cheese 300 cal.
Low fat strawberry kefir 140 cal.
Cheesecake 400 cal.
Bread with cinnamon butter 200 cal.
I haven’t finished drinking water yet, so I know I can manage the extra cup tonight.
I didn’t eat too healthy today, but I really liked that salad. I know as far as salads go, for the small portion I had, it wasn’t the healthiest. But I was pretty full after I ate it, and as a replacement for, say, a bacon cheeseburger, it did the trick.
I tried kefir for the first time in my life, and I’m not too impressed. It was so tart! Really just too unpleasant for me- I’ll stick with yogurt after I finish the bottle I bought.
ANYONE ELSE PUMPED FOR HAPPY POTTER?! My friend has been keeping my place in line for 7 hours so far. I didn’t know she was doing that, and now I feel a little bad, because I would have at least brought her a snack, or something.
Also, a lot less pain from my tongue piercing! It’s been a week exactly, and I’m obviously able to eat more than soup now, which is great. I just need to pick my food options a little better.

OMG! Definitely reblogging! I can’t wait to see what this says for me!
