It’s Called Diet Because All The Other 4-Letter Words Were Taken

Ok, it’s about time I started blogging again. I have found that blogging keeps me motivated, it keeps me honest with myself and those who read my blog, and it holds me accountable for my actions.

My actions as of late have been downright horrible. For the past 2 months, my diet has been back and forth. I’ll eat healthy for breakfast and lunch. Then when snack time rolls around, I’ll go buy 4 cupcakes and eat them all. Or I’ll go to this popcorn place near my work and I’ll buy a large bag of salty delicious popcorn and eat it all.

Dinner is even worse. I’ve been to Panda Express for dinner too many times to count, just this month! And I’ve eaten from Raising Canes almost as many times. Nothing good can come from Raising Canes… All they sell is fried chicken tenders, fries, and creamy coleslaw.

THIS HAS TO STOP! I’ve gained back a little weight (10 pounds), and I’m sitting at just under 300 pounds. I got down to 287 and just kind of quit. I quit exercising, I quit caring as much about what I ate, I quit blogging… I just got busy and lazy.

BUT, that all changes today! Today I’m back to my healthy lifestyle again!

-NO more sweets
-NO more pop or sweet tea (I probably had about 5 sugary drinks in the past couple months, so that hasn’t been too horrible)
-NO more fast food
-NO more popcorn (unless it’s healthy popcorn)
NO more food binges

I’m nearing my one year anniversary of the day I started this journey and I want to end the year on a high note. I started December 18th, 2012. I’d like to have lost 90 pounds by that date this year, so this is me officially setting that goal.

Wish me luck! I’m going to need lots of it! Oh and willpower, I need lots of that too. I can and will do this!

Since I’m trying to hold myself accountable, here’s what I ate today.

Breakfast- 1 and 1/2 cups of Cheerios with 1 and 1/4 cup skim milk.

Lunch- Ham and cheese sandwich on low calorie bread with fat free mayo, can of low sodium tomato juice, and a banana.

Snack- Homemade turkey meatballs and spaghetti soup, handful of cashews, and a small bowl of Kashi 7 grain puffs cereal with skim milk.

Dinner- Scrambled egg and egg whites, turkey bacon, toast, asparagus, sliced tomato, and 1 tablespoon of low calorie butter.

After dinner snack- Cherry cobbler fruit bar.

All together it was 1803 calories, just 3 calories over my goal.

Today was hard since I’ve gotten used to eating more calories, but I know from experience it gets easier after you get used to it. So I’m hoping to get past these next couple weeks quickly!
