Military Diet - aka 3day diet

Welp, here we go again. after being 200 lbs in the delivery room with my son i was able to lose weight naturally (breastfeeding did NOT help) through just kind of watching it but not really trying and i went to 161 lbs from March to October. in October i did the Advocare 24 day challenge and went to 153 lbs. i fluctuated 5-7 lbs up then back to 153 and by May i was back at 160 and after using my fitness pal I was able to get it to 147 lbs by my birthday June 20. i managed to stay there until October when we moved and i was eating out for an entire month and slid from salads to wraps to the ol dollar menu trying to save money....i am now back to 155. OMG ! so today , 11/12/14 i am beginning the 3 day military diet and here is what im going to do. i will do ONE blog and update it and then include the shopping list at the bottom of the page.

DAY 1: Breakfast:

one piece of whole wheat bread ( lost my toaster in the move)
2 tblsp of peanutbutter (smeared on the bread)
1 cup of folgers coffee
3 16 oz bottles of water from 8am-12pm

(**you're supposed to have a half of grapefruit but i dont like them so i looked at a substitute and the only thing to do is mix 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda in a glass of water becausethe acid in grapefruit can only be copied with baking soda....well i dropped my son off at daycare, ran in the house to grab breakfast only to find i apparently dont have baking soda so i wasnt able to do that and its freaking me out.**)

so after lunch i wll tell you what i did because its 11:36 and with 24 minutes before i can eat im really trying to remember it's only 72 hours with this restriction and food should not control me....anyways. ill keep posting until the three days are up and i will document my end weight here on Saturday morning! (cross yo fingaasss)

Lunch -
3 oz canned tuna on a slice of wheat bread

3.5 oz tilapia broiled in foil seasoned with cajun spice & black pepper

1 cup baby carrots
1 cup green beans warmed only seasoned with black pepper
1/2 a banana because i screwed up and thought it was that but it is supposed to be an APPLE*
instead of ice cream i opted for the 8 oz of apple juice.

WOKE UP ON DAY 2: **lost 2 lbs.
i was so excited and motivated to do my diet but while taking my son to his sitter's a juice leaked all over his bag and diapers so that took time to clean up and by the time i got home ( i work next door to my house) i didnt have time to make the breakfast so :

slice of whole wheat bread with 2 tblsp of peanut butter
(this better not screw me up)
