The Goddess Diet on a Dime: 30 pounds in 90 days…Day 1

December 26, 2009

Well, now that Old Saint Nick has come by with his milk and cookies (Lisa: and blessed my butt with five more pounds), it’s about that time  we start what my mother (Lisa) and I call: The Goddess Diet <insert heroic music here>.

Here’s what we’re gonna do: Lose 30 pounds in 90 days.

Here’s how we’re gonna do it:

1. Calorie Journal – we will limit ourselves to 1500 calories/day (with the help of a FREE calorie counting website)

2. Drink six glasses of water a day.

3. Exercise 5/days a week… this one will be interesting because I just had knee surgery. Day 1: Chair Aerobics <—click here for the exact video we did!

4. Look for and share low calorie (and delicious!) recipes…no crappy ones allowed. This is where you will help!

We would appreciate your feedback, support and recipes! We will try them out and let you know! I am a vegetarian, Mom isn’t…but feel free to post any recipes and one of us will try it!

When we try a delicious new recipe, we will post it here! Instead of putting our actual weight, we will post our weight lost weekly, and fill you in with some of those recipes…and have the calories counted out for you (aren’t we swell?).

We will see you at the end of the week – we look forward to your comments!

The Surgery of Knee.

June 4, 2009

Hey gang!
Long time no update…sorry about that! I had knee surgery May 28. Want to see some pictures? Sure you do! I wil give you all a warning, what you are about to see may make some queasy. There are also some pics of some kitties benefitting (I looked this up and it turns out this word, benefiting, can be spelled with one ‘t’ or two! Interesting!) from me being stuck in bed. Here we go!

I have decided to make a “True Friends” list. The list is comprised of people who visited me during my bed rest. You will be surprised of what a person stuck in a bed for most of the 24 hours does to keep herself entertained. I have started making crafts…this should scare you. I have also figured out a way to turn on light switches with my crutches and read two books from the Twilight series in two days.

Twilight and New Moon, the first two books of the Twilight series.

They are about 700 pages each. I have also bonded with the cats. All 20 of them. Yes, you read that right.

Our little kitty, Onyx.

🙂 Next post I will make a list of all of our cats and try to get pictures of them all. This will be a big project, but…what else do I have to do but watch movies and weave my crafts?

Until next time,

One day I can stand again, too!
