End of Cycle Apple Day

Today, I got on the scale and guess what. :( I'm the same as yesterday! So, here's the plan. Today is the last day of my cycle so I'm going to do an apple day today and break this dang plateau. After losing 22 pounds the first week, I'm so disgusted with the last 10 days of flat line. I can't even begin to tell you how disgusted I am.

If following the protocol weren't so easy, I'd have given up by now. I feel like I got a bite of the carrot that's being dangled in front of my nose right now and it's soooo frustrating! I completely admit that I cheated *one time* while on my cycle. I had an extra Grissini stick. Big cheat, huh? But even when I did that, I stayed within the 500 calories I'm alotted.

Luckily for me, Gala apples are just ripening on the trees around my area NOW! I can't even begin to tell you how absolutely delicious they are - juicy but crunchy with a definate sweetness followed by a bit of a tang... I think I could eat these apples all the time.

But. I'll tell you a secret. You know what I miss about going through the fall and all these apples being ripe? Caramel. Hahahahahaha!!

In the mean time, I'm going to work on creating a few more recipes. I have Mom & the kids to test the taste out for me. The kids should never even know that it's "diet food," if I make them up right. :) They're already begging me for more of my Baked Cinnamon Apples, Up Town Chicken Soup, & Garlic Basil Roast Beef. And Mom already has eaten several of the other recipes, even though she's no longer following the Protocol (doctor's orders for now). Partly, I think she's into helping with the recipes so that when she gets the green light to return to the Protocol, she's already got LOTS of recipes to choose from.

So, even though I'm doing the Apple Day today, all my readers aren't left in the cold! We'll have something new to try out (and already taste tested) later today, so keep checking. Or, you could just subscribe and/or become my Friend... :)
