Starting a Diet

In February of 1987 I had my last child. My post pregnancy weight for my 5'4" frame was 146# and I was devastated and feeling huge.
I wish I was that huge right now. 

Sometime during the summer of 1987 the grocery store where I shopped began a community diet plan. I shopped each week and gathered each of the pamphlets but never started the diet. Recently I came across the diet and thought I might as well give it a go.
It is called the Rotation Diet. It starts out very low calorie and changes each week to keep your metabolism revved.

So I have shopped, I have weighed, and I've eaten my "last supper," so, here it is, Monday morning, let's go.
Pops is going to do it with me which should make it easier for both of us.
Along with this Diet we are doing 21/21 Walking Challenge. We will be walking at least 21 miles in the next 21 days. That is only 1 mile a day. I can do that. Pops just finished 21/21 yesterday and he walked over 50 miles!

Do you want to do it with us? I hope so. 
Get started as soon as you can. Walk at least 1 mile today.

Here is Week one of the Rotation Diet.

We are going to try to walk in all 48 states. 

Florida - Pops 2.12 miles, Noni 1.37 miles


Pops and I met up with some good friends in Jacksonville, FL, The Guthries. We went to Cracker Barrel for lunch. And we did really well. Pops chose a country salad with grilled chicken. I ordered Trout with sides of green beans and broccoli and we passed on the corn muffins, but had 5 wheat saltines.

I put our cauliflower in the crockpot on low and laid two three chicken thighs on top and cooked on low. It worked out good. 
So, today went by quickly and by the end of the day we each have logged our 2.5 miles.

I'm not hungry either.

Tomorrow morning we will head toward Salt Lake City so I'm not sure which state we will be walking in next.

Hope we motivated at least one person today. Let us know.
