My husband and I began following Jorge Cruise's "Belly Fat Cure" plan in March of 2011. Needing to keep my motivation up, and also wanting an archive to read back over, I decided to join the legion of those people already tracking their progress.

I forgot to weigh myself last night, so I did this this morning, but I was fully dressed. Even fully dressed, though, I wouldn't have expected the scale to say I am 6 pounds heavier! Guess I'll get a real reading tonight.

Tomorrow is my test. Turns out I have tomorrow off from work so I can practice a bit in the morning and still have time to see a movie before the test to keep my mind off it. We're going to see Captain America, one of my husband's favorite comic book heroes. The soundtrack sounds fantastic, kind of like Indiana Jones.

This morning's breakfast was cheerios and UVAM. Lunch was leftovers from the lasagna from Tuesday night. Dinner will be a turkey pita sandwich. Hopefully I won't be too hungry after class and can just stick to coffee for the evening.

That's if my husband wants coffee. We have some oppressive heat going on today and tomorrow. I'm just trying to continue drinking water so I don't faint in class. Luckily they've been running the air conditioner through the full class instead of turning it off half way through.

Last night I found out I'd been doing some of my testing material wrong, so one of my friends, a junior instructor, met me over at the Dojang at lunch to give me corrections. Nothing like having to learn something all over again to get you jittery for a test! I am not worried I won't pass, but I get a little anxious all the same. Eager anxious, but that still feels like butterflies.

Then Saturday we are having class on the beach, so I am thinking of packing my own snack for the movie tomorrow. Even the smallest popcorn is still over two carbs! Not that I ever finish a popcorn... But we're going out for lunch and I intend to eat hot wings and celery. Then protein shake before class and something more filling afterwards.

Well I'm just babbling so I'm going to sign off. Time to refill the water bottle!


  1. Good luck on your test! I am very impressed. I need to start going to movies:)
    I see the heat wave across the Country and here it is is just cloudy and crappy. I love sunshine, and this weather gets really old.

  2. What ever happens on the test - just try to do your best. Everything will work out the way it is meant to.
    Have fun at the movies, I'm sure we will go and see that one too.
    Have a good day tomorrow :-)

  3. Class on the beach sounds great! Have a wonderful weekend!

  4. I am sure that 6 pounds is a mistake! Sometimes those scales are crazy! The heat was bad here today also. It got up to 104 degrees and the humidity made it feel double that! Let me know how Captain America was, its on our list to see this summer (I've got grown up boys that still love super heroes!). Hope the test went way!
