Well, today was day seven of the diet. I didn't do the only soup day. I 'gave up' so to speak. It was Mother's Day and I wanted to celebrate with family. I had my own little celebration with a DIET COKE! Yum! I love it. It isn't terribly hard to miss when you used to have 3 a day.. but I limited myself to a small amount.
We celebrated Mother's Day with John's side of the family. My mom was living it up at the beach (lucky!). We all went to Christie and Tom's to have steak. I had a hot dog... I am not a huge fan of steak. I love seeing all of my nieces and nephews! They are so much fun to hang out with and watch them grow. They are so big! I love them. 

John was having a major allergic fit (still don't know what was causing it) so I made a quick dinner when we got home. John grilled some bbq chicken, I made some steamed fresh green beans and some quick parmesan noodles (from a box). We always used to make dinner, but time gets the best of us. I must say... I LOVE the grill. I need to use it more often. 
(Yummy dinner for TWO)

Well the diet is over and I lost 5 pounds. I did not do day 7 at all. I think that it was a great way to get more conscious of what I was eating every day. It also made me find new recipes to try with vegetables! I know  I will use some again. 

So, if you are going to do the diet, I recommend you keep an open mind and go into knowing that it may not be the easiest thing, you will be somewhat hungry at times, and you may get a headache. But, it was worth it. I definitely found that I felt better and was sleeping better. 

Happy Detox/Dieting!
