How Many Mondays

Day 2 of a diet is always the hardest. Well almost every day of a diet is hard.

It's probably just as well that it has taken me until now to figure out how to post again. This has saved everyone from my early diet rants!

I warned my co-workers that I started a diet yesterday, and prepared them to brace for the irrational detoxing carb creature I will become for the next few (with God's mercy) days.

I haven't spoken to L yet today, I wonder if she's feeling a bit crazed too?

Guilt is what I'm feeling as I spent my first two nights on this diet accepting dinner invitations from friends and family. So the crabby detox creature still waits.

It's nice to be warned by nutritionists, diet books and trainers that indulging in something that's full of sugar and fat sets up a corresponding crash 40 hours later...at least then you know as you yearn for that muffin in the breakroom that it's not just because you have no will power it's because your body is seeking a sugar/carb fix.

So...diet or detox? Best of luck, whichever!
