cabbage soup

Since school started again in the fall, I haven't really had the time or the energy to diet like I did in the summer, but I think it's time to start tackling the last 5 kgs now. Today I started the cabbage soup diet, it will only last a week but I'm doing that as a kickstart until I figure out a new plan. The weather is finally showing a little mercy, I'll be able to get out and powerwalk again which will make a huge difference. Counting calories showed the biggest results for me last summer, but I can't count calories on school food, and it's not normal in Sweden to bring your own lunch to school like it is in the states. Besides that, when I was counting calories, I was tired and upset all the time, there's no way I can deal with the last few months of school feeling like a PMS monster! xD
Here are the rules:

Day One:

Unlimited soup, as much fruit as I want (except bananas).

Day Two:

Unlimited soup, as many vegetables as I want (no beans, peas, or corn).

Day Three:

Combine day 1 & 2: unlimited soup, as many fruits and vegetables as I want, still no bananas, beans, peas, or corn.

Day Four:

Unlimited soup, up to 8 bananas, and as much skim milk as I want.

Day Five:

Unlimited soup, 500 g. quorn (meat substitute), and up to 6 fresh tomatoes.

Day Six:

Unlimited soup, along with as much quorn and vegetables as I want. Important: drink at least 1 liter of water today to flush out the toxins!

Day Seven:

Unlimited soup, brown rice, and vegetables.

 

Supposedly the average person loses ca 5 kgs per week on this, but about 2 kgs are water weight, so my diet journey won't be over after only a week. I recently got ahold of a stationary bike, I'm going to try to use it as often as possible. Let's see how this goes! ^^

Wish me the best!

 


Kiss my booboo?


FEAR

Seriously, I would be interested in looking into what causes fears. Bad experiences are an obvious factor, but what if you find yourself sickeningly terrified of something ordinary that you've never encountered as a threat before?
Take loneliness for an example. I know there are people who have lived perfectly normal lives only to later have panic attacks or major anxiety breakdowns when left alone. How does that happen? How is it cured?
