I am so on a roll. I tell you…I totally ROCK!
I started a diet that I’ve stuck to for 2 weeks….Yes!! 2 WHOLE WEEKS!! Until this evening….
I get up in the mornings. I have my coffee. I’ve been certain to eat a breakfast of some sort even including a half cup of skim milk. Why skim milk? Because THEY said it’s important. Then I follow that with either veggie sausage and an egg (cooked in Pam…not butter) or cottage cheese with fruit (one of those Cottage Doubles). I also have a fruit cup (not in syrup…maybe in light syrup but mostly sugar free.) I can’t even believe I’ve done this for 2 WHOLE weeks!!
For lunch the first week I basically fucked up. Yep…I brought celery and peanut butter every day thinking that the peanut butter would be my protein source. Why protein? Because THEY say protein is important.
Then I realized that I was taking way too much peanut butter but by the time I realized this I was already addicted, so I needed to go cold turkey. Skip the peanut butter and add Laughing Cow Blue Cheese flavor to have with my celery. I also bring 2-3 rice cakes, a granola bar and a fruit cup. Nice, huh?? I should be shedding those pounds daily, don’t you think??
Yes, I haven’t been able to give up my White Chocolate Mochas, but, mind you, I have them made with skim milk and NO WHIP so that should count for some sort of will-power, right?? (And possibly my “milk” consumption for the day)
For dinner I’ve been having cauliflower and tomatoes sauteed with garlic and olive oil….or I have mushrooms stuffed with different flavors of Laughing Cow Cheese…awesome!! You should try them! If you are doing the Weight Watchers points, these little delights are barely nuthin!! A few times I had some baked chicken…
I’ve had popcorn for a snack. I’ve been drinking water and tons of it because at my new place of employment there seems to be an issue of very dry air, and along with my lips being so dry they are cracking and my nose being so dry it’s bleeding, I walk around feeling quite dehydrated, so I DRINK TONS OF WATER at work. I’m wondering where it all goes since I really don’t get a chance to pee….
(Oh come on…that’s not ME….look at her waist!!)
I slipped up one evening and had McDonald’s with the family, but I didn’t eat the whole snack wrap and fries, just half.
I also exercised for 30 minutes…once…but I’m just getting started.
I’m thinking of trying a new exercise routine next week…might be worth it….ya never know…another weight loss goal could be attained!!
So, tell me….and tell it to my face….why the FUCK have I only lost one damn pound??? Is there some conspiracy against me? What have I done to deserve this?
I kid you not, I AM TRYING!!
Now I am so fucking frustrated that today I decided I am on a “break”. A poptart for breakfast, skipped lunch because I had a Mocha….then I just ate 5 Cajun chicken wings and 1 slice of spinac-artichoke pizza for dinner followed by a little tasty treat called a “s’more” made by this new little pizza joint near my house….
Yep…I ate all that junk, and now I’m pissed.
Do you ever do this? Try try try only to get discouraged and go off the diet thinking you will start fresh on Monday??
Why do we do this to ourselves??
Call it human nature, call it lack of will power…or call it fucking PMS for all I care!! It sucks!
Anyone got any suggestions on how to kick start this weight loss already????
