Can't Sleep Makeover... I Smell Diet Soup

I got bored. haha! So I decided to do a late night makeover on the blog. If it has some issue... let me know. I will try to get it fixed=)

The reason I can't sleep... I have something cooking on the crockpot and it smells shockingly delish.

Clense... Diet... Something I Heard About From My Sister
This crockpot concoction is part of this "cleanse" my sister told me about. Don't worry it's a cleanse where you eat... I'm not a non-eater type. I eat. Generally, a lot... hence why I feel it's probably best to do a little cleansing. haha.

So a few days ago... my sis posted on Facebook about this "cleanse" she was doing. Since I have been quite unhealthy since Thanksgiving... and I'm getting married in June and wanna look cute... I thought 'eh' why not give it a try.

I'm almost halfway... not sure if it works... but I'm doing it for no other reason than to put a quick stop to the downward slide I've been on. I do realize that consistent healthy eating is the way to go... but I wanted something to kick start me in that direction. Don't laugh.

Seriously?! Burgers at Work? This is Why I Never Diet
Yesterday, I walk into work... and I discover that there are 3 incredibly fatty burgers ready and purchased for the 4pm show. ... apparently the just most delicious, unhealthy, yum patties you can put in your mouth.

If you know me... or have worked with me... you know I eat just about everything. Except this week. Stupid "cleanse."

The producers wanted me and Ray to test out the burgers... meaning eat them... and then guess how many calories they had in them. Despite really wanting a burger... I declined. whomp whomp...

The "Cleanse"
Here is the torture I've been putting myself through... upon further research... aka Googling... I've found it's a variation of the GM diet/cleanse. I've put it below... not because it's a good idea or that it works... only so you can see how ridiculous I'm being this week.


It's 7 days long... and you can't drink "adult beverages" during that time, but you must drink 10 glasses of water/straight black coffee/black tea each day. I've been getting no where near that much water!!! But I will say... I'm now on day 4 and I haven't been hungry... I haven't wanted to eat what my choices were that day, but I haven't been hungry.

Day One All the fruits ya want... except bananas.  Apparently they really wanna push melons on this cleanse... thankfully I love melons.

Day Two All the veggies ya want. Start the day with baked potato with a "pat" of butter. I opted for a sweet potato. I was told you can do salad, but no dressing... a little oil and vinegar is ok though...

Day Three A mix of fruits and veggies. No bananas still... No potatoes today=(

Day Four Bananas and milk. I know, really?! This is the day I'm on now... I get 8 bananas and am supposed to drink 3 glasses of milk. So weird. But! I also get unlimited amounts of the crockpot concoction. It smells yum... and it's keeping me from sleeping!

Day Five Chow time! It's time for beef and tomatoes!!! Eat two 10 oz. portions of lean beef and 6 whole tomatoes. You don't have to eat all the beef... but apparently the tomatoes are crucial. Also up the water intake by a quart. Holy cow... I'm going to be in the bathroom all day if I do that!

Day Six Unlimited amounts of beef and veggies.

Day Seven Brown rice, fruit juices and all the veggies ya want.

Crockpot Concoction:
28 oz, Water, 6 Large Onions, 2 Green Peppers, Whole Tomatoes (fresh or canned), 1 Head Cabbage, 1 Bunch Celery, 4 Envelopes Lipton Onion Soup Mix, Herbs and Flavouring as desired.
