I'm back and eating at my house insted of McD's!
I haven't posted since July! I've been off-track and gained a few pounds but am back on it. I've decided that instead of thinking of this as a diet and eating "diet food", I'm going to concentrate more on not eating fast food. That is my downfall, for sure. I buy pretty healthy food at the store, I just eat out instead. I have some junk food in the house right now that my roommate got me for V-day (curse her!), but normally my food stock is pretty healthy. I just need to cook more, plan meals, and make sure I take my lunch to work so I have no excuses. If I don't take my lunch to work, I either eat out or snack around and skip lunch, then stop at McDonald's when I get off at 3:00 and eat a full meal, then I'm hungry again around 7:00. So, I'm keeping water bottles everywhere, packing my lunch and trying to eat breakfast. Yogurt with granola has proven to be a great and fiilling breakfast for me. Last time around I ate a ton of salads but I bought a bag of romaine when I first started back and ate one salad out of it and was done. It just wasn't appealing this time. Lunchmeat scares me (unless it's the expensive deli stuff) so sandwiches are out of the question! I love raw broccolli so I've been eating that with a tiny bit of lite ranch just about everyday. I enjoy most diet pop so that's not a problem for me. Getting in my water is a struggle. I haven't stuck with it long enough to notice a difference, that's definately what I need to do. If I could just drink the rec. amount of water evreyday for like a week or so, surely I'd notice a change and it'd be easier to stick with from then on.
