Detox H20 and Weight Loss Plan

I officially have to be in a bikini in less than 2 weeks for a bachelorette party. Maybe I should have thought about that all weekend as I stuffed my face with wine and Cadbury eggs. Dang you, Easter Bunny.

At any given time, if you ask me if I am on a diet, my answer is always yes. In reality, I am really only on a diet Monday through Wednesday. During the first half of the week I will hit the gym every day, eat healthy, drink lots of water, etc. Then Thursday rolls around and I turn into a complete idiot until Sunday night.

So without further ado, my plan for the next two weeks…

Diet Strategy #1: Jillian Michael's Detox Drink. Apparently this detox drink helps you shed 5-7 pounds in 1 week. I remain skeptical but am trying it anyway since I drink that much water anyway. Anyone ever tried this detox?

64 oz purified water
1 bag Dandelion Root Tea
1 tablespoon pure Cranberry Juice
2 tablespoons Lemon Juice

Make the tea as directed on the box. Cool to room temperature and add it to your container. Mix in the lemon juice, cranberry juice, and fill with filtered water up to 64 ounces. Drink one full 64 oz container every day for seven days.

Note: Finding the Dandelion Root Tea took me several stops at different places to find. I recommend going straight to a Healthy Home Market or GNC first to save yourself the headache.
Another Note: I flew through my Monday container before 11:45 am and still do not feel any skinnier. Cheers to the next 6 jugs...
Diet Strategy #2: Actually LOG IN to My Fitness Pal and not lie about what I actually ate (ie: Do those gummy snacks really count? YES.)

Diet Strategy #3: Go to all of the Cardio Funk Dance Classes (1 hour, 4x week) at my Y.

Note: I do not look this cool when I dance. 
Diet Strategy #4: Avoid Krispy Kreme. Can't even drive by it.
Diet Strategy #5: Just to be ambitious - The Skinny Rules

Hopefully my bikini hanging in my closet will motivate me these next two weeks. I am open to any recommendations/suggestions for healthy (and quick) weight loss!



  1. Girl you are just like me. I can't drive by the doughnut shops either. They are much too tempting!! I'm trying to eat more fruits and veggies. :)

  2. This is so funny because I was thinking I need to blog soon about whipping my diet plan into shape. I'm going to be in a dance recital (60 year anniversary of my old ballet instructor and some of us "oldies" are coming back to honor her with one last hoorah of "One Singular Sensation)in June. Two words: tights and leotards. EEK! :)

    I too am a complete idiot on the weekend with outings and lots of delicious food and wine. I mean, who wants to settle in and watch a movie with the husband and have...tea...boring! :)

    Thanks for the reminder that I need to get back on the workout horse! Good luck! Can't wait to hear your review about the Jillian Michael's drink. I was thinking of trying the master cleanse, but I wasn't sure if it was really healthy or if I'd get lightheaded trying to workoutwhile on this thing.... :-/

  3. I'm so curious to see how this juice thing turns out. How does it taste?

  4. Which Y do you go to? I just switched to the Y and I'm totally missing my Funky Fit dance class at my old gym. I'd love to join you sometime ... text me the location and time?

    Your detox tea has me intrigued - where did you find your big water jug?

  5. I did the juice plan in college for Spring Break and it always worked. I also cut out alcohol. It helps your liver produce more bile and in reality you don't lose fat but shed water weight. Less bloat = awesome.

  6. Good luck! I've maintained a pretty steady weight for a long time now and have never done a crash diet before. Though this is pretty tempting with my sister's wedding in just 11 days! ;)

  7. thank you for this post! I definitely want to try the detox.. I have four weeks until my vacation ... I wonder if I can keep up the skinny rules for a month...

  8. I think you have a good plan in place! Key is, sticking to it! :) I'm not great at sticking to my plans, generally! HAHA!

  9. My 'go to' crash diet has been the Cabbage Soup Diet. Works everytime for me :)

  10. I found out yesterday I have to be bikini ready by Friday. Eep! All those pastries I had last week are laughing at me I know it. So I'm right there with you! Stay strong sista!

  11. Let me know how the tea works for you!

  12. Let me know how the tea works. I would love to try it out!

  13. How does the drink taste? And I LOVE LOVE LOVE cardio funk! I need to get back to it!

    Good luck with your plan!

  14. Ugh, Christina, I totally feel your pain! Except: 1. I'm not as tiny cute as you are already, and 2. my boyfriend surprised me with a trip to Savannah this weekend and therefore a bikini is in my near, near future... I can't wait to hear about how your Jillian Michaels drink goes! I should have thought about that sooner! (Or maybe I'll just blame my laziness on my boyfriend's short-notice-planning...heehee!)

  15. I pinned the skinny rules and I'll be trying that detox as soon as baby gets here:) I just wanna feel HEALTHY again! I simply can't turn away from donuts right now!

  16. Eeessh. good luck. Always eat your veggies/salad FIRST because you will fill up faster and have less room for carbs/fat/junk!

  17. I heard about her drink and have been wanting to try it! A few weeks ago I did the Whole Foods 7 Day cleanse, my review is posted here- http://eloquentlyemily.blogspot.com/2013/03/total-body-cleanse-review.html. I unfortunately did not feel any different after my cleanse but hopefully you will have better luck! Can't wait to find out how it goes!

  18. Honestly, losing weight has a lot to do with what you're eating and more important NOT eating. You should check out this blog on how important it is to avoid certain foods. Helped me a lot, and may help you too: http://how-to-reduce-belly-fat-blog.com/

  19. No carbs after lunch?!?!?! Bob has lost it! haha

  20. It's funny how you posted this today. I tried on my bridesmaid dress for the first time in a month and I didn't not like how I looked in it I have exactly 30 days to get my crap together! I'm thinking about trying Self's Drop 10lbs. weight/cardio workout plan. It's ambitious to workout 6 days a week, but I'm gonna try!

  21. Hahaha oh this was funny. Girl I just got done eating like 10 twixes and 2 cadbury eggs. Me and swimsuit season are not seeing eye to eye.
