Fine. I got a blog. It was suggested to me a while back and I didn't do it for a number of reasons. But fine. I'll do it.
What is on my mind today? No, not salsa. I need to work out. The whole eating/working out thing is such a challenge, I have been doing it for so long that I know people must think I'm insane ("wow, her diet doesn't seem to be working... maybe someone should tell her"). My friend at work, DW, says that I should try South Beach. Frankly, I don't want to. I don't want to do any fad diet. I think that restricting myself with rules just messes me up, and I should know - I'm a Weight Watchers lifetime member. So, my new thing is to just "eat sensibly." It sounds simple enough. I'm trying to avoid processed foods (very difficult), limit my sugars to those that are naturally occuring, eat more whole grains, try and shove down a few vegetables a day, and keep track of what I'm eating at FitDay.com. This practice resulted in an unprecidented and highly dangerous drop of 8 pounds in 2 weeks. As a result, I ended up sick. So, I picked it up a bit, eating more calories per day and such. Then came Thanksgiving. So, back to the drawing board for now, I'm still about 8 pounds above my January 1 goal. I need to workout when I get home, let's see if I actually do.
