Its Monday, the beginning of a new week. I have been sick all weekend but I did manage to prepare somewhat for my diet this coming week. My main goal is to eat positively nothing prepared. I must avoid sugar like the plague! I just cannot believe the damage sugar does to my system. I'm in denial so much of the time then suddenly I get incredibly sick from it and the truth has to be faced.
So no sugar! I've done very well this weekend eating only real foods and that's the way I intend to keep it. I'm really going to have to work hard if I want to see a loss for the month. I hope I don't jinx anything by saying this but I really feel like I'm back in the game now.
When school started in September my body did its normal fall stress thing: gain weight, eat whatevers in sight cause now I don't have any time. For years I have gained weight when schools starts. I teach school and I know its the stress of getting back to teaching and the lack of time to concentrate on diet.
September is over and so is half of October. I made it through without a huge weight gain. Sometimes I feel like I am fighting for my very life here. I don't know how to swim in water and I feel like I have the same feelings about dieting. I'm drowning. The days are muddled with eating whatever I can grab in my busy life.
I like clean eating days; days when I know exactly what I ate and days that I know that what I ate was healthy!
I'm trying to cut down on my coffee. That is huge in my life!! I need to cut back on coffee to drink more water. I drank about three glasses of water yesterday. That is a big accomplishment for me!
So this week is all about eating real food, drinking water, and getting outside to walk. That's really what health and losing weight is all about! It seems so easy...and yet..its so hard!
