I'm waffling back and forth about whether or not to go on the South Beach Diet. To people that know me, it must come as a surprise that I'd even consider a fad diet - I have always been so strongly against them. However, I've been doing some reading and I've come to the decision that South Beach really isn't so bad, it does promote a healthy way of living. My "eat sensibly" approach is good, but sometimes you just need rules. Regardless, I'm not starting SB this week because of New Years. I am working hard to eat sensibly, though, and if I see a pound or two lost this week I'll most likely go ahead and stick with this method.

Stuff I need to do:

  1. Eat right - I can make mistakes, but for the most part this horrible eating and caving to peer pressure needs to stop.
  2. Wake up - I need to get up in the morning, which will allow me to prepare dinner in the crockpot if necessary, work out, and get a breakfast and/or lunch together so I'm not trying to eat out of the vending machine every day.
  3. Watch lunches - They kill me, I need to stop going out everyday. I'm going to eat in at least twice per week. If it requires me to go back to disgusting Lean Cuisines, so be it.
  4. Make dinners/go grocery shopping - so that dinners are not so bad
  5. Work out - I must stick with it. A minimum of 3 weight workouts and 2 cardios per week - I am going to try and workout for at least 20-30 minutes per day everyday even if it's just a walk around the block.

Sounds good... maybe I don't need SB after all. I'm going to shoot for a pound per week, which should get me to my goal weight by June or July - a long time, but it will be worth it. This time it's real!
