I hosted a birthday party for my man this past weekend. I ordered way too much food and I hate wasting food. Between him and I, we tried to take it upon ourselves to eat as much of the excess as possible, which consisted of buffalo chicken tenders, pizza and cupcakes. Needless to say, I needed a quick fix/detox if you will to remove the few pounds that I gained. I turned to the Military Diet http://themilitarydiet.com/military-diet-plan/. I tried it once years ago and didn’t follow the rules, i.e. I made the tuna into tuna salad and snuck in a few extra snacks. This time, I am committed! I am on day 3, and have already consumed the breakfast and lunch allotments. I am very hungry and extremely low energy. I have been drinking lots of water and herbal tea with one cup of green tea in the morning. I have lost a total of 3 pounds since day 1. One thing to note about this diet is that I have been sleeping phenomenal but have had very crazy dreams which I attribute to the ice cream before bed. It’s mostly a mental challenge. I’ve been day dreaming about wings since I awoke this morning and thought during these three rigorous days I have yet to cheat, tonight, the final meal, may just have to be that. Wish me luck!

While reading Wolf's speech one famous saying that came to me was mind over matter. Wolf used her mind to accomplish great things and that was all that she needed.:
