Can I do it? YES!
Tomorrow marks the start of cycle 2. I will try and post more information about that cycle before I start. But I do know on some days I get to add extra foods into my diet. Which is exciting- however I am really happy with these results and won't go crazy at these new additions. 

Food/Eating update: I haven't cheated at all since I reset the clock!

New diet idea: Mixed Drink (non-alcoholic)
Have you ever been at a party or just hanging out with friends and everyone is drinking exciting mixed drinks or eating crazy fatty foods- and it sucks dieting and missing out on the social drinking/eating. Well thanks to my creativity I no longer have to feel left out!

The Green Tease
Here is how you make it:
What you need:
Green Tea
Seltzer Water
Mint Leaves
Frozen Blueberries

1) Mix in a glass the green tea and seltzer water to taste
2) Chop up lemon- one slice for squeezing in and one for garnish
3) Chop up several mint leaves (as large or small as you like- I cut mine in halves)
4) Add in 4-5 frozen blueberries- Serve

The nice part about this drink is that it changes- it will start mostly green with all the fruit and add ins floating at the top- as the blueberries thaw they will sink to the bottom and slowly turn your drink pink. This helps change the flavor throughout the drink... which keeps it exciting! And makes a happy dieter. 

This drink is good for blending in at a party or for mixing it up at dinner. It is very refreshing and especially would be good on a hot summer day! 
All you fellow dieters hang in there and be encouraged we can do it!
