Sunday Morning

it's very early, 6 am. I've been up for over an hour getting ready to go biking. I clearly am rested and ready to start back in training since I woke before the alarm all ready to get up and get going. I'm ready. I'm going biking then I'm going for a short run. I need to get my butt running. After a week off and then all this activity, I'll need shower chairs so I don't collapse from exhaustion in the shower :)

Last night I was working on my shopping list (I have to go grocery shopping after biking) and planning my meals for next week, when it suddenly dawned on me - diets don't work. I was thinking about when I joined Weight Watchers how well it worked and maybe I should try it again. But then I realized, I've run that course. I think Weight Watchers works so well because you're taking a pretty lousy diet and cleaning it up. My diet is no longer lousy. I eat pretty well, I just get into this mindset of eat less to lose weight. That doesn't work when you are eating healthy, wholesome food.

I realize this is not making a whole lot of sense but hey, it's 6 am :) And I'm not saying WW doesn't work. It does!! It works well. I think though it no longer works for me.

Anyway, I'm going to go grab something to eat and then head out. Maybe I'll go to Starbucks?? No, that's not a good idea.
