Day 4 - 5DPT

I woke up today feeling like a HUGE truck backed over me about 20 times. I hurt all over - my head, my arms, my shoulders... everything... I desperately wanted to stay in bed, but I got up anyway so that John wouldn't have to drive himself to church. I'll admit - I cried most of the way there out of frustration for feeling bad.

I ended up making it through all the way - both services... but when we made it home, I fell asleep for a good 4 hours.

After my nap we did some more cooking. Upon going to put away some of my food for tomorrow, I realized that I put tupperware in the cabinet last night WITH food in it! Unbelievable! I knew my mind was starting to go, but seriously... wow, this one takes the cake.

And what makes it even worse? When we got home from church we both thought the house smelled like something was still cooking from yesterday... or basically thought at the time that the aroma from my cooking last night had lingered - and it smelled good. Only to find that it probably was that food in the cabinet. Thank God, I did some more cooking today and found it... because can you imagine what it would have been like after a couple of days?!

My meals today consisted of: Salisbury Steak and Meatballs in Marinara - both recipes were really good, and I enjoyed them. I'm still a few meals behind today, but I feel full and happy with the eating that I've done.

I still think that this program was beneficial. If nothing else, I have been able to break the carbohydrate cycle that I was in, and am making some better choices of meals. That alone right now is a good step in the right direction.

Tomorrow marks the last day of the plan, and one more new recipe for this week.

In addition to my meals - John made himself some Potato Soup for him to eat this week.


  1. You're rocking it girl, just one more day!
    I just ate some Cheese Nips, so maybe I should look into the 5DPT! lol

    Carbs are pure evil!!!

  2. Do you think you were feeling "run over" because of the 5DPT?

    I can't wait to see how all of this turns out. I may be pursueded into my own 5DPT to get the evil carbs out of my world too!!!

    I can't tell you how many things I've found in the freezer that don't belong there. I totally know how you feel. I can't say I've left actual food in the cabinet, but I fear I'm not far from it.

    Thank you so much for the updates on this. You are doing phenominally! I can't wait to hear the verdict on your success!
