OMGosh! Please somebody stop me! I am about to embark on a hideous journey. I am going where no sane person should ever tread…. someone smack me now…. “insert eerie music here”
I am about to undertake a DIET! Run people run for your life. Get to safety before the monster is unleashed… sigh..
I have never been very good at diets.. they never work..err well maybe it is I that never work hard on them… I get frustrated because I want to eat what I want to eat when I want to eat it. I am spoiled like that. I have never been a sweet eater so I have been blessed in that way. You however put a bag of chips in front of me and consider them gone!
It seems any success I have ever had with diets was short term.. I would come out of the gate like a horse destine to win, and after a few short weeks I’d get bored, not be happy with how it was going, or just hate the stuff I had to eat and give up thus gaining back the weight I had lost and a little more to boot! What a vicious cycle!
I do a lot of the cooking so I can not blame it on the people in my house.. it would be nice if I could tho.. LOL But my Father and I are sort of in the same boat now so I am gonna make him join me in some of this… We are going to try the Atkins Diet.. get rid of those carbohydrates, or at least try t reduce them way down… so pasta, rice, potatoes, breads..things I love love love will not be part of my food choices for a while… I still have a lot of reading to do however I am eager to do it.
I am however glad that I will not have to give up things I do love..Eggs, chicken, steak, bacon.. so yes this seems better then anything I have ever tried. I am a protein eater always have been..so here’s to a life style change…
I am also going to undertake a little exercise.. A dear friend of mine started the couch to 5K program and is gonna help me get started.. This is a program for people who have no running experience and that would be me. Start me out very very slowly and build up! I have always wanted to run, but my will power had other ideas.. So there is a part of me that is very excited about that. I was gonna start that today, but to be honest I am beat. I worked all night have have not gotten any sleep at all today, so I promise I am gonna get up early in the morning and start..
So here I go feet first into this new chapter in my life.. somebody call the crazy house and have them on alert please… I or some member of my family may need them at some point… soon.
