I Tried The Military Diet

...and didn't absolutly hate it!

I Tried The Military Diet
Hannah Shaw

I tried the Military Diet and it wasn’t that bad. When I first started this diet I had no idea how I was going to do. You see, this diet is like eating less and less each day. You are supposed to lose 5-10 pounds in 3 days on this diet.

Here is the rundown of my first of three days. It wasn’t too bad.

Breakfast Day One: ½ of a grapefruit, 1 slice of toast, 2 tablespoons of peanut butter, and 1 cup of tea

I went to my sisters that morning and everyone else was eating bacon and french toast and I had to eat this. Grapefruit is not my favorite thing in the world.

Lunch Day One: ½ cup of tuna, 1 slice of toast, and 1 cup of tea

Also not too bad. I like tuna...I just usually am able to mix it with mayonnaise so it isn’t as dry.

Dinner Day One: 3 oz. of any meat (I had chicken), 1 cup of green beans, ½ of a banana, 1 small apple, and 1 cup of vanilla ice cream

This was a pretty good dinner. I was pretty full after this dinner. I do have to admit that this is probably the most colorful any meal of mine has been ever.

At the end of day one, I was feeling pretty good. I was full and I was thinking that I could definitely do this diet. It will be a breeze.

Now onto day two...this one was a little harder.

Breakfast Day Two: 1 egg (I chose to hard boil it), 1 slice of toast, and ½ of a banana

This was...well it could have been better...but I ate it!

Lunch Day Two: 1 cup of cottage cheese, 1 hard boiled egg, and 5 saltine crackers

I absolutely LOVED this lunch. I thought it was pretty good, I love cottage cheese. It was a pretty good meal.

Dinner Day Two: 2 hot dogs (without bun), 1 cup of broccoli, ½ cup of carrots, ½ of a banana, and ½ a cup of vanilla ice cream

I hate hot dogs but at this point, I thought they tasted pretty darn good.

At the end of the day, all I really wanted was some french fries and one of the cookies that are sitting on my kitchen counter. I’m struggling but also really thankful for the ice cream I get to have every day!

Day Three was easier than I expected and that was because I was in bed all day sicker than a dog.

Breakfast Day Three: 5 saltine crackers, 1 slice of cheddar cheese, and 1 small apple

I HATED THIS WITH A PASSION. I was already not feeling well and this was the worst breakfast ever.

Lunch Day Three: 1 hard boiled egg and 1 slice of toast

This wasn’t too bad. I was getting used to the taste of dry bread.

Dinner Day Three: 1 cup of tuna, ½ of a banana, and 1 cup of vanilla ice cream

I skipped on the banana for dinner. I hate bananas and I already felt sick, I wasn’t about to eat one for dinner. I didn't eat all the tuna either. I was over dry tuna, it's not that good.

At the end of day three, I was really ready for french fries and a chocolate chip cookie. At this point, I couldn’t wait for midnight to roll around so I could eat all that I wanted.

The next day, however, I wasn’t really hungry. I didn’t really eat a lot of food and although I wasn’t doing the diet I did try to watch what I was eating. I did get french fries though and then I was over it and hated myself for eating them.

Overall I would say that this isn’t too bad of a diet. I was going to do a 4 day off diet as well where I kept my calorie intake at about 1500 a day but I only have so much willpower...not yet anyway...and I didn’t have the groceries I needed. I would totally do this again and I plan on doing so.

Michigan Rain Vs. California Rain

SO, I've just recently had the fortunate experience to be reminded just how Michigan rains. Now, before you roll your eyes at me, I HAVE EXPERIENCED RAIN (in regards of the the popular joke that Californians haven't). However, I have to agree; after experiencing one of Michigan's thunderstorms (with my college's sirens blaring in the background), it comes to mind just how different "rain" is between the two states:

If you have been following me for a long time, then you know I write about two main things: relateable articles and communication media based articles. Now, it is time for me to combine the two.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
