Day One

Well, it’s Day One of my revamped diet. I already had my first NSV too! I drove my boyfriend home from my house and on the way home I was SUPER hungry and really really craving some fast food. Usually without even thinking about it I would have found myself in the drive through getting those super sized fries and a large dr. pepper….but I DIDN’T! I resisted the urge! I got all the way home and made myself a lean cuisine…and you know what? It was damn good. I felt satisfied, but I didn’t feel sick like I feel after eating junky fast food. It was actually kind of nice not feeling like that.

I’m so excited for tomorrow….well I guess today, but whatever. It’s 12:31 am and I should be in bed…but I keep thinking about my new Britta pitcher and my new water bottle that holds 64 oz of water. I got a bunch of Tupperware stuff and veggies and fruits and my crock pot chicken is cooking right now (it should be ready by the time I get up in the morning for work). I’m going to eat healthy. I’m not going to count or journal or keep track of it all. I know what is healthy and what is not, and I need to trust myself and learn to listen to my stomach when it tells me it isn’t hungry anymore. I shouldn’t decide how much I eat based on some magic number. If I’m going to be able to really make a lifestyle change, I need to really change and not just crash diet. I am trusting myself to make good food choices and to learn from the occasional mistakes that I am bound to make. I feel like this time around, it’s going to be a lot less stressful and a lot more natural. I’m on the path to a new, healthier me!

I really should be going to sleep now though. I’ve got a little over 6 hours before I have to wake up for work in the morning….so I should have been asleep a long time ago. Goodnight!
