Day 1, that's ok
Monday and Day 1 again. That's OK, the way we build these habits is to keep on trying. No major slippages, just had a couple of bites while I cooked yesterday.
In the good news department, I'm down a pound. And since I'd had an unaccountable bounce upwards after my initial weigh in, I'm happy with that. Onward!
I worked out that switching to black coffee will net approximately 12 pounds by the end of the year, so I'm making that change. I like black coffee after I get used to the difference. And 12 pounds is not insignificant. Looking at other habitual calories I can cut, for example by having alcohol less frequently. And emphasizing veggies as snacks.
Amarantha, crackers are so easy to make that every time I do it I wonder why I ever buy such things. I don't often buy them anyway but I'm thinking keeping some healthy ones on hand, along with some salsa, might provide useful snacks when needed.
K, this is a big work week and I should jump in with a vengeance. Let's make this a good one!
