This morning I woke up and it's over. The honeymoon with my body feeling good and feeling good about my self image. It's over. I think it's time for a divorce. And a food diary. I can't handle it. I know diets don't work. So I am going to just try to change how I eat permanently. And I'm going to try to plan out meals for a week at a time so we don't eat out as much. I am feeling so fat today.
I mean, I had been feeling fat lately, anyway, but now it's almost too much. I hate it. I can feel this one fat roll all the time. Gah. It's horrendous. I can't stand it. So, I signed up to do a wellness challenge at work and now I'm dieting. I'm making one exception for myself per week, like a reward, to help me through, you know? Like, once a week I can eat out and eat whatever I want, but the rest of the week, gonna be a good girl.
I also want to do this to teach Asher how to eat well. And because we get all this CSA food and it's awesome and I don't want it to go bad. I made my chicken last night and it will be lunch box food all week. I'm having a chicken salad with the CSA stuff for lunch today, chicken and fresh lettuce and tomatoes, a little cheese.
Not exactly sure what my diet will be, though. I think, no fried foods. Lower the amount of processed foods. Only meat once per day. No snacky-snacks (sticking to natural snacks like fruits and veggies). Smaller portions. Eat breakfast every day. That's a good start.
Anyone have a good website that helps you plan your meals out for a week at a time? Maybe one that helps you generate a grocery list as well?
