November is NaBloPoMo (National Blog Posting Month) where you are challenged to post every single day for the month of November. So… I’m two for two so far!
Day 2 is in the books…
The first two days of liquids really wasn’t all that difficult. I did cheat a bit – in the form of a gin & tonic the first night and some gorgonzola sprinkled onto my tomato soup last night. But as I’ve still not had a single piece of Halloween candy, I don’t have the slightest problem with declaring the first two days an unqualified win.

Now onto day 3.
For days three – five I can eat as much as I want as long as I follow the rules.
- No drinking ½ hour before or ½ hour after eating
- Take no longer than 15 minutes to eat
In the past, when I’ve done this it has been surprising just how much harder it is to eat in 15 minutes. I’m not sure what’s going on inside my body or if it’s all in my head, but I suspect that I will be able to eat the little things of cottage cheese (which is listed in the details as an option) I brought with me to work today, but I suspect I’ll have to work at it with at least one of them to get it done in the 15 minutes.
Also – in the past I have found the not drinking for ½ before you eat part – very hard and it truly is something I think I should incorporate always as I think there’s something to a dry pouch that helps it work better.
I bought some tilapia last night that I’ll cook for dinner tonight and it will be seriously yummy as I was just too busy last night and this morning to do anything more than throw some cottage cheese (which I love) into my lunch box and run out the door.
And I’m planning on getting on the treadmill tonight!!
Last night I got a hair cut and here’s a picture, what do you think?
