You'd think I was 2 years old, I had a total meltdown at Trader Joe's this morning.  My husband and I were all off when it came to scheduling and expectations for the day.  We went shopping with the intention of buying all my Karen Voight 10-day meal ingredients.  The diet is effectively close to starvation as far as I can tell.  I don't use the "starvation" with any ill-meaning.  It's just really low calories.  Anyway, by the time my husband said, "Do you really need all that bok choy?" I was in tears.  I pulled my sunglasses down.  I decided that maybe this was not the right time to be starting a rigorous diet. I put everything back expect for the regular rice milk we normally buy.  I did a lot of crying today for various reasons I can detail later.  Suffice it to say, we'll get through this particular heartbreak the same way we get through the last, with prayer.

I was 125.6 this morning.  I managed a half hour weight lifting routine this afternoon.  We (I) am cheating on the diet tonight by having red wine (did I say I wouldn't have any alcohol?) and now we're heading to one of our favorite restaurants; the place where we had our rehearsal dinner. :)


  1. I've tried "Starvation" diets before...I just ended up eating more when I was done. LOL! Good luck on your diet and I hoped you enjoyed your dinner.

  2. I've tried "starvation" and had it work, but only when I was crazy hypothyroid and my body decided it would gain weight on practically no food. Other than that, I really don't recommend starvation dieting (I can't exactly recommend it then either). It's not good for your long-term adrenal health, as I understand it. Exercise and no binging seems to be the best way...
