About 6 months ago I decided to start eating a better and trying to cut out a lot of sugar from my diet. The first thing to go was pop, iced tea, and any other really sugary drinks. I’ll be the first to admit that I do still have a coffee (half hot chocolate) from tim hortons at least once a week, but that’s better then what it was. I’ve mostly been drinking water with crystal light singles (Aspertame is bad I know!!) or tea. I’ve gotten a lot better about just drinking water at restaurants and water with some lemon is good too. I was a bad, bad girl today and ordered a dr. pepper with my lunch. I can’t finish it. It’s far too sweet and has a funny taste to it, and I’m not liking the burpy-ness that results from the carbonat…ion. I feel gross and bloated, it’s not much fun. At least I’ve kicked one bad habit…only about 100 to go, lol.
Next goal is to cut back on my portion size and try to eat slower. This includes snacks and meals. I also need to learn to stop eating when I feel full. I do need to lose weight, and I haven’t really lost anything but that isn’t exactly the goal…I find if I focus on weight loss as a goal I get very frustrated and start to obsess about it, which doesn’t help. I also know that I would actually need to start getting off my butt and actually going out and doing stuff. Adrian and I have both said that if we lived together we wouldnt’ be on the computer nearly as much and would be going out, but that’s not possible right now and I hate doing things beyond going to work by myself. One of these days I’ll hafta just get over it I guess.
