So it is time for me to start a diet again. I am not sure how much I weigh, but I know I have gained some over the last couple of months. There are things that are hard to do anymore, and I think that my back problems have a lot to do with the excess around the belly. I have to take a close look at my diet and figure out what I need to do to try to reduce. I do know I eat a lot of carbs, so reducing my carb intake will be key. Also eating late at night is not helping either. I also need to stop buying the cookies during break. Those three things will help me. Oh, and portion control. I eat way too much food. I need to try to eat more foods that are filling instead of eating eight cups of something. I am going to start tomorrow, although today I didn’t buy the cookies or eat anything for dinner. I need to cut down a lot in my sweets consumption. That and carbs will be my biggest things. I need to figure out what I can eat when I get home and feel hungry. Maybe a no fat soup with veggies in it or something. I am looking for help and suggestions for those of you who have tackled this and kept it off. Remember I am vegan so although I can do an atkins like diet (which I will be doing anyway) the meats will be fake like meats. I need to do fruits for snacks for work I guess.
I do have an old spreadsheet I used to chart my progress years ago. I need to see if I can find that again and then see if it will port into google docs because I want to track it online, maybe if it is public it will be more motivation for me to do it. Plus Tammy is coming in March too, so maybe losing a bit of weight and getting in shape would help as well. I also need to clean house. A lot. I am running out of time and need to motivate myself to do that.
My mirror for my car came today as well as the present from my mom. I need to find the pliers to replace the mirror tomorrow morning. I need to start waking up early every day to clean and throw away.
Anyway, I need to do this. I think I can, I think I can, I think I can…
