Operation Master Cleanse- Day 1

Filed under: Uncategorized — SQZ1981 @ 5:43 pm

What better way to begin a new chapter in my life than with the dreaded “Master Cleanse”.  (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Master_Cleanse) As I type I am drinking my first yummy lemon + maple syrup + cayenne pepper concoction.  It actually looks a bit like urine.  


how did that bottle of wine sneak in the background...tease.

The Master Cleanse consists of drinking this magic lemonade all day along with a daily warm salt water “colonic” and laxative tea- nothing else.  No food.  No booze.  No caffeine.  In other words- my own personal nightmare.  But, as they say (I didn’t want to believe them), it gets harder to lose weight and stay motivated to be healthy as we get “older”.  Boo.  My lack of willpower and love for vodka, wine and food have given me this weird belly fat that needs to go, now, before it gets out of hand.  Note the weird back fat rolls in these pics (where in the *F* did those come from!?) and lumpy cellulite pouch covering up my once taught, defined abdominals.  The beginning stages of a double chin are noticable as well, sexy!  **my apologies for the awkward facial expressions, these pictures were taken (self-timer) last night when I got home from a drunken bbq at an ex’s place.  his hot skinny girl-friends were there.  time to shape it up Suzy-Q!   Stats- 5’0″ tall & 128.5 lbs., size 6ish  GW- 108.5 lbs, size 0-2 

pick out the flaws

is that really my ass?


Okay, I bet you’re dying to see some before pictures, huh?  Here are a few (from 2006ish) when I was at my ideal size:
As you can see, I used to be quite the party princess.  Well, those days are long gone (kinda).  No more putting illegal substances in my body or staying up for three days straight surviving on nothing but vodka, gatorade and aforementioned illegal substances.  It was fun for a while but then I had to get a “big girl job”.  I have ended up in Commercial Construction product sales (Biology/Chemistry degree- makes perfect sense, I know!).  So, my weeks consist of taking people (mainly men) out to eat and drink- guys in construction typically don’t “just get a salad” or decline “one more round”.  SO- not that I’m complaining my work and lifestyle are taking a toll on this temple of a body.
I know some of you are thinking, “she’s taking the easy way out…blah blah blah”.  This fast is just to get started, kind of re-set my body- detoxify from excessive amounts of booze & food and “re-set” my internal hunger-cues and cravings for alcohol & sugary/salty fatty foods.  I work out fairly regularly (3x/wk) either at the gym (strength training, spinning, Eliptical etc.) and take my dog for long walk/runs.  This is the pooch- the vicious Zephyr-Monkey!  It’s storming like crazy in Chicago right now and he’s spazzing out at the thunder, hilarious :o)
Well, as I finish this yummy glass of “lemonade” and embark on my journey of health and happiness…I feel a sense of excitement and a little nervousness.  I fear failure which is probably why I’ve never done anything like this before.  I need to prove to myself that I can stick it out and reach my goal.  I’ve heard that a woman’s 30’s are the best years of her life so I want to be as prepared as possible for all the fun that awaits! 🙂  How can I meet the man of my dreams who’s going to sweep me off my feet when I don’t even like myself?  Okay, I’m not going to get all “self-help” preechy but I want to like myself again and be happy when I look in the mirror.  So………here goes!  I’ll keep you posted!
P.S.  To keep my mind off being hungry, I’m going to go shopping.  New Ray-Ban aviators and a walk through IKEA to make a few random purchases should do the trick!
Happy Memorial Day :o)
