The 21 Experiment

Day 5 – pm

Filed under: Blogroll,Posts — by capski @ 9:25 pm

Hi-ya.  Not so good today.  Today I was craving starches so I had some potato salad, just a bit.  And Fire Pasta with a hard roll for dinner – sooo good, sooo hot.  My portions were much better than in the past, so I am becoming aware AND filling up faster.  I only ate 1/2 of the Fire Pasta, so I have 1/2 for tomorrow (so much hotter the 2nd day!) And a small serving of the potato salad, instead of a big heap (I love potato salad.) 

I did have a good lunch.  Small bowl of Cioppino (fish soup) and a big mixed green salad with a few slices of turkey, Oil/Vinegar.  This in itself is a good change because I was always a Blue Cheese/Ranch girl in the past.

Blueberries just by themselves and an apple for snacks.  And a pack of peanut butter crackers.  Should have passed on those or only ate a few.  I have been craving something sweet all day.  Much better selection than a brownie, though.  

Did great with the water today (Fire Pasta has that effect) and took the vitamin.  But tonight I’m feeling tired.  And puffy, if that makes any sense.  This is my first starchy day and my first tired day.  I could go to bed right now and it’s not even 10:30.  Interesting.  I think I’ll repeat one of my previous energetic days again tomorrow and see what happens.  My friend, Shannon, thinks I might have a gluten allergy – we shall see.

I get to ditch the walking cast tomorrow while at home.  I’m to keep it on for the next 5 days when I’m out and about, but can take it off while around the house to help start rehab.  It feels SO good to take it off.  Stiff and creaky, but good.  🙂 



  1. For Phase II – review WeightWatchers point log and and see/repeat successful days and avoid problems encountered, like cheese on the veggie sandwich.

  2. Hi capski,

    It was nice to read the beginning of your journey to a healthier lifestyle. I hope it’s going well for you! I stumbled upon your WordPress after thinking of a similar idea of my own. I’d like to start a blog dedicated to starting good or breaking bad habits over the course of 21 days. The name you picked back in what looks like 2006 is perfect for my blog. I hate to ask, but would it be possible to delete this wordpress so I could use the name? If it’s asking too much, I completely understand.

    Have a great day,
