Ready to Color Myself Skinny!

Hello, everyone!  I'm back in the States and back to reality.  My reality at the moment is unemployment and dwindling funds, so needless to say, I miss Thailand.

Who wouldn't miss lazily laying on this beach all day?
And eating lunch in a nest on the ocean?
And dancing their butt off in the jungle while rocking a nice tan?!

The good news: I managed to leave Thailand without gaining an ounce.  I thought for sure I'd come back 10 pounds heavier after eating Thai food day in and day out and enjoying too much cheap Thai beer.  But somehow I came out unscathed on the scale.

The bad news: I've gained a good 6+ pounds since being back in San Diego.  How is that even possible in a few short weeks?  Easy. I've been stressed which leads me to eat more.  A lot more.  I also tend to indulge in a lot of wine when I am stressed to calm my nerves and ease tension.  Wine equals boat loads of calories if you're not careful -- and when am I ever careful?

I am ready to shed these annoying extra pounds and get back to my healthy, happy, fit and trim self.  Weight is just a number and I am not going to obsess over the scale.  I just happen to know that when I am taking care of myself by eating well and being active, I tend to weigh a certain amount.  When I overindulge in dozens of cookies, bottles of wine and late night tacos, that number goes up and I can feel it all over.  My stomach is not its flat self at the moment and my jeans are too snug for comfort.

Let me emphasize: This is NOT about the number on the scale.  It is about how I feel.  However, that number is going to change when I change my habits.  It's just simple math (calories in versus calories out) and it's inevitable.

I am blogging about this in an effort to hold myself accountable.  I am committing myself to the Color Yourself Skinny 21-Day Diet Detox.  Am I going on a diet?  Hell no!  I don't believe in diets.  I crash dieted in high school and always ended up miserable and heavier.  I will never diet or restrict again. Life is way too short for deprivation and if you've read my blog for long enough, you know that I like to live it up.

So, what is this 21-Day Diet Detox if it's not a "diet?"  The word diet in this context is in reference to cleaning up your diet rather than "going on a diet" like most programs.  It is a comprehensive e-book full of useful tools, 131 delicious recipes, workouts, social challenges and more.

Leveraging the three most effective nutrition strategies, you can increase your energy throughout the day, keep your cravings in check, prevent calories from turning into fat while you fight pre-mature aging, fatigue, a host of degenerative diseases and lose weight! The secret isn't what you cut out of your diet -- it's what you put in that works. This comprehensive system includes 6 guides, 2 trackers, 7 short videos and is a 21-day jumpstart to reset your system, optimize your cells and accelerate your weight loss!

This massive e-book is essentially a healthy living bible that I will use well beyond the 21 days.  I love the printable guides, the workouts, and all of the tools.  I am so excited to get this party started!


I am happy that I get to share my journey on this program with you.  I will be taking my "before" picture today but I am a little afraid to share it just yet.  I promise to keep you updated on my progress and share some recipes, photos and workouts as I go.

If you want to see what this whole thing is all about, 
you can download a free 1-day guide here. 

If you want to join me for the full 21 Day Diet Detox, you can download it here.


I am headed to Chicago to spend time with family this upcoming Tuesday which means I get to cook all of these delicious meals in my sister's gorgeous kitchen.  I plan to bring all of my tools and hopefully convince my sisters and aunt to color themselves skinny too.  The more the merrier.  Wish me luck!

Note:  The term "skinny" has a negative connotation in today's society because of the prevalance of eating disorders and obsession with being rail thin.  When I use it, I do not mean to imply frail, unhealthy or underweight.  I am not striving to be model thin and would never advocate for that.  In this context, skinny means optimally healthy, fit, and happy.

  2. First off, you would be gorgeous even if you gained SIXTY pounds so I'm sure a measly SIX isn't even noticeable to anyone but yourself! :)

    I have never done any sort of diet or detox or cleanse or anything at all...mostly because I have no willpower to fight my urges! Thankfully, my body craves the healthy stuff most of the time so it has never been much of an issue for me. I keep waiting for my metabolism to slow down, as I am sure it will someday, and then I'll be in real trouble. Ha!

    Good luck and I'll be interested to hear what you think of it. Oh, and have a fabulous time in Chicago! Remember to pack warm stuff -- I hear it is really cold there right now!! xo
